Vw Normies think they're so great, or anyone who doesn't have to touch their own car. When in reality they build shit in a way that makes less sense than normal. Plus they lie and cheat emissions.
Apple. Normies think they're so great but the software sucks, by the time there's 2 updates out it freezes. Theyre easy to break or bend (unreliable, like vw). Just all around make a shitty product but die hard fans will defend it because they refuse to try anything better.
>>14338116 vw is like probably most reliable thing Ive known behind barebone jap shitboxes. 2.5 tdi are trash engines but man older passats and golfs run forever. I'm not 100% on the newer models past like, B6 Passat but pretty much everything before then was considered bulletproof.
>>14338209 >>14338200 They actually do it for a couple reasons. It decreases NVH and 99% of lexus owners have no business being under the hood because they have no idea what they're looking at. It's not the lawsuit thing because other car companies don't cover everything.
>>14338191 yuuurop. b4, b3 passats and golfs up to mk4 are confirmed unkillable. The newer ones from mid 2000's share same problems all german cars get as they age - electronics start going batshit and well, you gotta maintain automatic transmission or you will pay the price. As much as I know about new ones they are all rather cheap, people lease them for about 5-8 years get like 170-200k on the clock and resell them without ever doing any work on them. VW also builds škodas which are even more budget version of vws and they last really well.
>>14338102 >but the software sucks Name another UNIX operating system that isn't enterprise shit like HPUX or Solaris and has commercial software on it. >Theyre easy to break or bend (unreliable, like vw) Not in the slightest, you should have seen the PowerBook G4 I had. Motherfucker took a beating.
>>14338178 a question, sorry. In Europe VW diesel engines are not only in VW and Audi, but also in Seat, Skoda etc. because they are good. the old 1.9 TDI is maybe the most reliable diesel engine (for a car, not for trucks and heavy machinery) Sorry for my english
Some servers may run a Linux distro but most are running win server 2012 and pretty much all clients are on win 7 now with a few still jogging along on xp. I never see osx on any of the companies I work with
>>14338346 I wasn't really implying theit engines themselves aren't reliable. Vw here aren't known for blowing up, they're known for faulting every way possible tho. It is a known stigma here that the vw will most likely have a check engine light on or some other issue. Also those engines aren't in those cars because they're really good, they're in there because vw owns those company's
>>14338744 Kernel architecture is from the 1980s and it's support for non-POSIX software is abhorrent.
It's marginally better than windows, only because NT suffers from the "Why bother with this 5% performance increase" by it's coders which have resulted in a gap between NT and Linux performance.
XNU doesn't suffer from the same problem and at the very least is partially open source so you can always make the improvements yourself.
Linux is great if you are poor and can't justify proprietary software (or if it's against your moralfaggotry), but to get it to be as good of a OS as OSX is for a PC it'd be a huge timesink and not everybody derives joy from diddling with code all day every day.
Apple = tesla take old technology (or steal it), pretend you were the first, put it in a pretty package, sell it for 4x what it's really worth. And everyone thinks the CEO is some amazing uber genius, when in reality it's the team around him doing all the work.
>>14338772 Yes, but this thread is not intended to actually compare a car company to apple (or any other "the X of the car industry"), it's simply a disingenuous premise for shills to list all the brands the company they work for competes with.
>>14338784 Because Unix's design philosophy is designed around the power user. I don't NEED Unix, but If I have the choice I am going to be choosing it over anything else.
For a shitty analogy: Why manual instead of automatic?
>Also explain why Linux is Shit
from my other post: >Kernel architecture is from the 1980s and it's support for non-POSIX software is abhorrent. >Linux is great if you are poor and can't justify proprietary software (or if it's against your moralfaggotry), but to get it to be as good of a OS as OSX is for a PC it'd be a huge timesink and not everybody derives joy from diddling with code all day every day.
>>14338066 Is beeing the Apple of the car industry a good or bad thing?
-its only good if its new -something old sold as new -it got fanboys -the power to price ratio is fucked -its simple to use hard to maintain -you dont need it, you want it -but its still not that bad -design is a big thing -think different/ be different
I don't think there is one that fits perfectly, but Ford comes to mind.
>Apple releases new version of the same thing in very short time spans >Claims it's great and filled with new innovations >Change appearance just enough that people will realize one version is older than another, and feeling shamed using it >Produce a product that is globally popular, yet quality continues to decline >Rely heavily on marketing and pathetic social trends to sell product >Company run by a spiteful cunt of a lunatic
Cool marketing meme. Unlike BMW drivers, right? Because they love driving so much, that's why they bought the ULTIMATE DRIVING MASHEEEEN.
Lexus makes luxobarges for soccermoms and finely-tuned sport sedans/coupes for rich cunt businessmen who drive aggressively. Not sure if any of this relates to them being/not being Apple, but you're objectively wrong in your criticism of the company.
Not to mention Lexus owners are pretty sticky about maintenance, it's part of the reason Lexus continually ranks #1 or #2 in reliability ratings.
Europoor here and I have to bring Citroën into this equation. >all about the looks >stupid "innovative smart" features to bump prices >when the "smart" features break, they are expensive to fix >regular essential car features such as suspension and engine fails regularly (just as iPhone's antenna and screens)
iPhone screens develop dead spots pretty frequently it seems, there will be a section that just doesn't respond to any touch
never heard of antennas breaking, but iPhones also have brittle-as-fuck screens that shatter from slight impact; i've seen someone drop an unsheathed galaxy S3 from hand-level onto concrete, didn't have a scratch on it
