Linux Is For Losers

Daily reminder that there is literally no reason to use Linux on a desktop. Linux is a server OS and anyone running Linux on their desktop is either 12 years old or an unemployed loser. It literally does nothing that Windows can't do better right out of the box. Enjoy your hobby OS, nerds!

>>42640454
> Linux is a server OS
Linux is not an operating system.
The original meaning of the word "shell" was a interface layer between the core Unix system and the user. I now consider Emacs my shell, and I try to replace interactive use of rc, bash or other traditional Unix shells with interactive use of Emacs whenever practical. E.g., to escape from the hassle described below caused by equal signs in Youtube URLs, I defined an Emacs Lisp function M-x youtube-dl so that I no longer need to use a Unix shell to interact with the command-line program youtube-dl. (This works for me because 99.9 percent of my interactions with rc are through Emacs. Consequently, I do not need to switch from Terminal.app to Emacs.app to type M-x youtube-dl because Emacs.app already has the focus even when I am interacting with rc, and Terminal.app is not even running most of the time on my system.) I tend to define new commands and wrap/redefine existing commands like ls a lot, which of course means writing some code. Consequently, the list below includes problems I encountered (in bash and in rc) in writing and maintaining code that defines new interactive commands and defines wrappers around existing interactive commands. (My .rcrc file -- which is rc's analog to .bash_profile and .bashrc -- is currently 704 lines long and contains 112 definitions of rc functions, but about half of those 112 are "of historical interest only". I.e., maybe I should have deleted most of them by now.) Here starts the list. Backslash does not quote the next character in rc like it does in bash. Consequently, to refer to a file name with space in it, you have to do it 'like this' rather than like\ this.

I needed to remove a string of characters from the end of every line of a next file. It was like hsj63g-hsha75. In Linux I just opened up my handy dandy terminal emulator and did
sed -e 's/[a-z0-9]*-[a-z0-9]*//g'

How would I even do this on wangblows without some convulted GUI. That's just one normal everyday example.

FTFY
Backslash does not quote the next character in rc like it does in bash. Consequently, to refer to a file name with space in it, you have to do it 'like this' rather than like\ this. Unfortunately, all the softwares I am aware of that do tab completion of file names quote spaces and pound signs like\ this, which makes it tedious in rc commandlines to type file names with spaces and pound signs in them. This has been for me the biggest disadvantage of rc relative to other shells. It has been especially painful OS X where spaces in file names are not rare, but even on linux it was painful for me to specify file names like #long_name_here# which Emacs was in the habit of leaving around until I figured out how to get it to stop doing that. Parenthetically, I ran into the same basic problem with all the Plan-9 and Plan-9-inspired software I tried to embrace (e.g., Wily, Acme via plan9port): namely, although the design decisions work okay for people who use only Plan 9, the mismatch between the Plan 9 way of doing things and the OS X or Linux way of doing things makes it unworthwhile to use a Plan-9-inspired tool or a tool ported from Plan 9 on OS X or Linux. E.g., on Plan 9, file-name completion via the tab key is simply unavailable, which works on Plan 9 because everyone including the providers of the basic system keeps path names nice and short. In bash et al, you can have an equal sign in a file name or a URL without needing to quote it. In contrast, in rc, you need to quote it. this is a hassle for me since youtube URLs have equal signs in them, and I am in the habit of pasting them into shell commandlines a lot. The thing I like most about rc relative to bash is that a function definition begins with the characters "fn foo" where "foo" is the name of the funs definitions. In other words, in bthe starwhereasn fowhich is to type.

It's meant to be an entire shell replacement, some people who were used to the way things were done on LISP machines love it because it works like that, and you can do a lot of work with a few keystrokes and it has a lot of pseudo-GUI shit going on like early MAC-OS stuff, but if you were learned in bash and vi from a young age... it's not really UNIX in the same way.

People can hack how they choose, a diverse ecosystem isn't a bad thing in the long run. All it means is that other people edit their files slightly differently...

I use Linux primarily for development purposes.

Aside from that I feel much more comfortable when I use tools such as git with it because of how integrated a terminal is to a desktop environments (GQuake, Yakuake, etc).

Maybe is a classic, but I wouldn't call it art. Sure it aesthetically pleasing and the game mechanics addictive, but there isn't any real substance to the whole world. What is more I would argue that the world of Mario only make sense if the princess is captured, as the whole world is made to be rushed on the quest to save peach.

You can literally play mario and make a before/after analysis a notice you obtained nothing. There is no meaning on the game apart from the mechanics.

Now mechanics isn't art. It's principle at least in games is based on a primitive reward system for doing a correct action, which from evolutionary stand point make sense to have but which we are purely abusing (without a bad connotation) to derive joy.

Guys, I know how to fix linux fragmentation

Just stop supporting obscure things like xfce, arch, non-redhat distros, non-floating WMs, and so on. A concerted corproate effort to support only the most mainstream, viable linux configuration.

Then, with the hobbyist distros crushed, linux can finally shine

My last job was in retail, the cash registers were a fucking retarded system. I hated it and avoided actually selling things to customers at all costs. I actually had the idea to do exactly that, but didn't know that it was already in place somewhere. That's pretty cool man. The registers sucked so bad that I knew I could make a better system by writing a terminal program.

Most modern programs already assume you're using a floating WM instead of setting special hints for transience or making sure the window isn't being forced into a weirdly sized box.

XFCE is still lagging behind the real world, and there will come a time when its users will be seen as masochists in the same light as windowmaker users today (but worse, because windowmaker actually offers something unique).

This it the beginning of the end. Fragmentation will die. Everyone will use qt. All will become systemd, then rpm, then one and the same,

The processor won't be upgradable in any laptop, but things will be soldered in in a macbook. I think you can upgrade ram, that's about it.

OP is right, gnu/linux is more better for hackers and for servers because of his its own robust security and performance while in the normal desktop user things work until a certain degree

In the Desktop world, people wants to get things done as quick as possible, time is money

Like why would i exchange functionality and convenience over ''muh freedom, look i'm free of botnets and nsa'' on a fucking workstation pc

In the GNU/Linux Desktop what you can do besides the server world and open a web browser and write web coding and hacking? yes there are software alternatives from windows/mac for gnu/linux but the 90% is crap and games are very limited too but i have to give props to Steam for what they're trying to achieve

And hardware support for newer hardware is slow on GNU/Linux in distros like ubuntu for example, idk how good is in arch since they always get the latest stable kernel version on their AUR

I would switch to linux, but I have two issues in my mind.

One is, I don't know if proprietary AMD drivers are good enough for everything. OSS ones give me problems (I have 3 options: let my gpu fry itself, adjust it so I have to manually switch power profiles all the freaking time or use a refresh rate of 100hz max using a 120hz monitor) so I'm kind of forced to use proprietary.

You should be comparing certain Linux distros to Windows instead.

Oh nevermind, you probably use 7 because you can't live with a slightly different start menu. How typical of the grossly unintelligent to be unable to adapt

That, and the perilously old and settled, but since you are on 4chan I will assume you are just dumb

lel click through this shit oh don't forget to uncheck the bullshit adware every time you open a program it bugs you pls update java pls update java pls update java

Not to mention that cleaning up your programs on shitdows is the worst thing ever. Oh lord, all of that clicking around, waiting, survey bullshit. Gay as fuck.

Wow it's like you really live in the 90s/early 2000s. Do you also use windows XP?

It's not like I was trolling just for you! Some of my best friends are furfags, goon-chan. why, my bestest IRC buddy kevin-senpai's waifu is ran, and his daughteru is chen. I always feel so much like just another normal high school boy with a normal, unexciting life around him even though my one true love is a robot loli from heaven

Even then, we're all something scum to someone. What are we posting for? Whatever it is, it can't be helped.

But is the entire world wolves? No. I only care about wolves because they are NOBEL and HONORIFIC unlike hyoomans. And if you were a wolf we would be totally kawaii yiffing right now so don't pull any of that "trust me im a wolf" shit nigger

Just, ugh, don't touch me you filthy mundane. One word nearer and I'm putting you up on my blacklist on tumblr AND livejournal

Nice try, but wolves can't be doctors and don't need to be because of their healing powers.

If you really are a wolf and just call yourself a doctor to keep your powers secret from humans though we could hang out maybe

I use centos as a monitoring box for my windows network and have used several shitbuntu versions before, so got that going for me.
>But using apt-get or pacman is much faster than searching for something online once you know how to use it.
It takes much longer to get newest versions to be compiled on all of the thousand linux distros, while most windows stuff runs as soon as it is released on a non-deprecated version.

Daily reminder that there is literally no reason to use Linux on a desktop. [citation needed] Linux is a server OS and anyone running Linux on their desktop is either 12 years old or an unemployed loser. [citation needed] [ad hominem] It literally does nothing that Windows can't do better right out of the box. [citation needed] Enjoy your hobby OS, nerds!

You're making a lot of claims without providing a single piece of evidence to support them. Remember, the burden of proof is on the person making the claim.
>>
>>42646909
Why are you even on /g/? Mactards have no interest in tech. They just want shiny things that need no configuration at all to be shoved up their asses in exchange for a fuckton of money.

As a windows user have respect for linux users because doing much of that hocuspocus is hardcore sometimes.

I have not the slightest respect in macfags. You are basically like vegans. Or Hitler.
