I used it for months years ago. Until I couldn't file my taxes online and my kids couldn't do their homework. In the trash it went. Now I only touch it with a 100 mile putty.

>>47153296
I used it for years. Then I got a Mac because I got sick of everything breaking.

Suck my throbbing dick, freetards. :^)

Fine.
What's your address?

>>47153838
Funny, I ended up going full time Linux because I was tired of my Mac ecosystem breaking with every fucking release. This is after being a born and raised macfag for 25 years. Apple dropped all pretense of respecting their power users years ago.

I'd like to interject for a moment, what you're referring to as virginity is actually GNU/virginity or as I've recently taken to calling it GNU plus virginity. You see virginity is not a full lifestyle unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a fully autistic experience as defined by POSIX.
>>
>>47153889
Well, clearly you didn't read my post, because I did pick one. I'm Linux now.

But seriously, Apple has always enjoyed a very strong power user community. Or at least they did, back when they were still the underdog and people like me were openly mocked by normalfags for owning a Mac. Now everyone and their boss are fullblown Apple fanboys. In some circles, you aren't even taken seriously if you don't have an iPhone in your pocket and awkwardly carry a goddamn iPad around everywhere.

With the move to Intel, we had an influx of Linux developers and sysadmins and such that kept hope alive for a while, but even then it was too late. Apple doesn't need us anymore.

Dude if I gave her firefucks she would not know what the hell it is. Plus, you know they can't be bothered to change anything for whatever reason. Personally, I don't really care. The point was to keep her off

So she uses Firefox thinking its chrome. Home page set to google and all. What's even more funny is that her friends don't even know either.

I have windows on dualboot with linux on my laptop.

Windows idles at 65ºC. Linux idles at 45ºC

Watch a movie at 1080p on windows laptop shuts off cause of overheating.

Don't even need to uninstall wangblows to use Linux. It's just the best option for me, I use it everyday as my main.

Nah, you could be using an android phone and not even know what loonix is. You could be running UBANTO or mint and never have to edit a text file.

Being using Linux since I was 12 with Fedora.

What does that make me?

13 :^)

I wish I was 13.

Life would be more simple.
>>
>>47153296
I actually did use Linux for quite a while, I think I used Fedora Core 3 and 4. I got pretty frustrated with it after a few months, as problems just stacked. I found workarounds for them, but I was sick of shit only working indirectly. Especially graphic cards drivers (nvidia) and network (WLAN just wouldn't work, no drivers at all available, so had to use ethernet) was a pain in the ass. Surprisingly, my TV card (I had something like that back then) was working perfectly well. I also missed Photoshop very much (I just couldn't get warm with GIMP, it's still shit today, but was even worse back then). I tried a few other distros and then just gave up when I noticed that I could just install Windows XP and everything worked ootb. The feeling was so good, like coming down to sea level after having spent months at 5000 m.

In 7th grade me and my parents went around looking for yard sales and shit when I saw this Sony VAIO desktop from I think 2001 with an upgraded 512mb of ram and a Pentium 4. It was running Ubuntu 9.04 and when I got home I noticed it was a lot different from windows and I had heard of Linux before that but I never really played attention to it. From then on I started to see how much better it was than Windows and how much faster it was because of my older hardware. I turned into what you fags are from 7th to 10th grade, telling everyone how I used Ubuntu and GNU/Linux and how much better it was and that it was free and shit, and when I brought an older laptop that I loaded 10.04 on in 8th grade with compiz and wobbly windows and shit on everyone lost their shit telling me how cool it was and stuff and then they'd think I was some sort of hacker when I opened the terminal and typed 'sudo apt-get update' and all that text came up and was just scrolling and shit when it updated the repositories, everyone thought I was the shit.

Sure she hasn't taken it to someone else by now?

I used it for a while but I got sick of not being able to use software.

As long as GNU/Linux doesn't have Mathcad and Solidworks and all that good shit that's required for my courses, it's Windows for me.

Not that impressive considering Mozilla decided to make Firefox a visual clone of Chrome.

Chortle your extra chins off, /g/, but Linux is the fucking worst for people who actually get laid.

I don't like it but windows is a pain with my older laptop, plus elementary is a perfect browsing machine so it easily became the OS i use most

That's funny, I used Linux for a week....then I got laid.

I've been using Windows ever since.

>can't into babby tier distro
Flash isn't included because it's proprietary. All you had to do was open the software center in the menu and find the restricted-extras package. Same with drivers...there's a button in the settings menu to DL proprietary drivers.
As for wifi...boot back into Windows, google (wificardname) + ubuntu drivers. Look for a .deb package, save it on a flash drive, then boot back into ubuntu, and double click the file to install. That's all. 15 minutes of googling would have fixed all your issues. You know, just like you have to do when something goes wrong in Windows.

Also, I don't have extra chins and I get laid regularly, by my girlfriend who also uses Linux. So STFU with your neckbeard stereotypes.
>>
>>47154109
why couldn't you have just installed chrome, rather than changing the firefox icon?

What are you, retarded? What the fuck sort of homework are your kids doing that they need proprietary Windows-only software? And how the fuck are you filing your taxes?

The act of installing an operating system is proof enough. If you blow up Windows, you are dedicated to either Linux, or knowing enough about it to get an iso and burn an install CD. If you keep Windows, you have to be able to partition a disk and get grub to boot it. Either way, doing the bare minimum is hard.

Same - I recently acquired a ten year old Latitude and just wiped the hard drive and installed Lubuntu. It's not worth it to deal with xp. I realized a couple days later that I might have wanted to try playing games at some point, but whatever. Partitions are a hassle.
>>
>>47153296
I still find it a little hard to believe that some people here don't use GNU/Linux exclusively.

I also find it hard to believe that so many people here use QWERTY.

Dvorak is the best.
