Dell drops Linux from desktops and laptops
>Dell cited lack of demand and the slow PC market as reasons for removing Linux as a choice for desktop and laptop users.
Holy shit freetards. Those Laptops were cheaper than the Windows counterparts, but people still rather payed more for Windows. People literally say: Linux, not even for free. This is the final nail in the coffin.
I have an Inspiron I bought from when they did that. I bought it thinking it would be the same quality as their business market Latitiude machines, but it turned out to be cheap plasticky Wal-Mart shit with a horrible LCD display. It was like one of three models they had available at the time.
Shit hardware is shit hardware regardless of the OS and it's not any wonder they didn't sell. Trying to market them as budget machines to non-technical users who don't care about specs shows they had no idea what they were doing.
>irrational linux hate
these fucking kids man
Freetards are always claiming that Loonix has no marketshare because it doesn't come pre-installed on PC's when that's a complete lie.
Nobody buys Loonigz computers because the OS is shit.
See that video on how Linux made that girl drop out of college.
>everyone who dislikes Linux is a /v/irgin!1!!
EPIC response ranjid.
Yes, I'm calling you ranjid, because it's actually niggers and POO IN THE LOOs who use Linux.
Everyone who is a bit tech literate knows how to use Linux and probably has it on a spare laptop/server/dual boot/whatever.
Yes, we know it isn't ready for desktop, yes we know it doesn't support a lot of professional software.
Irrational hate such as this thread is only done by gayming faggots that are the cancer of this board.
>not realizing people are paying for chromebooks and then learning how to install Linux via crouton or chroot
someone already tried doing this. they sold laptops cheaper and bundled them with linux. that shit lasted a couple months before they gave up because literally everyone returned them for being unusable
By calling me a freetard I can see you have no idea what Linux is about. Gayming retards such as yourself are the worst bunch. Do you really think you belong here?
Here's the link so you can go back immediately with one click
Oh wait, you're probably underage, did you know this site is +18 only? Ctrl + W pleaes
You have no arguments because in reality only a few faggot hipsters and autists run Linux.
But let me guess, the 91% of the human population who don't use Linux are all gaymurs who just don't get this beautiful OS. AMIRITE?
Why you haven't left already? You're here for a few days and you think you know everything you dumb kid?
I already told you, people who know a little bit about technology probably run Linux somewhere, not necessarily their main machine. They understand what Linux is about. Edgy kids like you who have irrational hate towards Linux are cancer.
Anyway, linking again other places that should suit retards like you
>yep strong case of freetard bubble.
I prefer to live in the real world, but whatever floats you boat, buddy.
Tell your mom that you wrecked some dumb gaymur in an Internet argument.
The thing is that :
1- people that knows and use linux are often intelligent people (or at least, people that are a minimum tech literate)
2- Dell sells expensive shit
I knew Dell sold linux laptops but then again I'll never recommend this brand to friends.
I'm pretty sure a lot of people think the same. It's cheaper to buy a computer from another brand, that comes with windows and install linux on it.
>computers sell poorly
>they stop selling them because they take up resources and shelf space
>I BET MICROSOFT DID THIS!
You can't be serious.
Why don't they have the option of "no pre-installed OS"?
Not that it really matters.
Pre-installed Windows is about $10-$20 depending on version.
It's nowhere as expensive as buying Windows separately.
>Pre-installed Windows is about $10-$20 depending on version.
In my country there's a shop selling MSI laptops without OS. For the equivalent specs you need to spend some 100 € more.
Do you really think we give a fuck about your degenerate pseudo-hobby?
>i wanna make gaymes when I grow up!!!
Site is +18
>lenux hes no geyms meme
>tfw using Linux and still able to play all my games
feels good mane
This. The problem with these "Linux" laptops is, they're always underpowered pieces of shit because of the whole "Linux can run on anything."meme. And..on top of that, the few decent ones that do exist, are priced through the roof.
reminder that people use proprietary software because of FEELS, which is the same reason we condone systematic unprovoked violence.
