Why would anyone want to use linux other than for networking? There is literally no benefit for normies to use it.

That's why they don't use it.

I like the way you guys refer to "normies" as if you're special. It's cute.

Not really.

Most normies just read emails, fuck around in facebook, listen to music and stream their stupid series/movies, etc.

All of those things you can do them on GNU/Linux just fine, in fact, most normies only use Windows because it came preinstalled on their shitty laptop/prebuilt machine.
>>
>>51598466
Because no OS really runs on them, it's impossible to even browse the web with them anymore, the keyboard is garbage and they cost too much to produce relative to what people are ready to shell out for them.

When messing around with Puppy Linux in a VM that was limited to one core from my quad core 2.2 Ghz AMD Phenom processor and only half of the cycles for that core (effectively 1.1 Ghz) and 1 GB of RAM, everything was actually surprisingly usable when using Firefox with all the addons I'd normally have and actually ran better than web browsing on my phone from my Droid Razr M, it didn't even reload pages every time I switched tabs. I had to limit the VM to 512 MB of RAM before it started performing similarly to my phone for regular browsing.
>>
>>51599352
This, I'm already doing all of those in Linux.

Some people might have bad experiences with Linux because they have unsupported hardware and everything is buggy because of that. Others don't have any problems and they can't see why everyone aren't just switching to Linux since it's so nice. Hardware manufacturers should give Linux drivers to their products and everything would be great.

It's fun to customize your entire system desu senpai
>>
>>51598466
Because tablets (and netbooks) replaced them.
>>
>>51596294
So they can invade your exclusive little clique.

No fragmentation is neat.

A malware infested data-mining bloated botnet. So is it Linux?

Your comment is embarrassing. Do you also possess skin littered with acne or are they scars by now?

It's not a P series, it's a Vaio PictureBook, something of an older cousin based on the Transmeta Crusoe CPU

normies actually use it in many machines, they just don't know it

There are many powerful and versatile tools for programming and scientific research.

Hobbyists also find uses for it. MythTV is pretty cool.
>>
>>51596420
Android is mostly used for networking when you get down to it.
>>
>>51596382
My guess is that many of them are gratis from the authors.
>>
>>51608003
Most computers are used for networking. When was the last time you used your computer offline and it wasn't a pain?
>>
>>51596294
It's free and relatively stable as long as you do not dick around with anything. I switched to it after reformatting and being told by Microsoft that I needed to buy another license for their shitty basic OS.
>>
>>51596294
>There is literally no benefit for normies to use it.

It doesn't become filled with viruses and malware and an ever growing list of shit starting up with and crippling the system.
Ever look at a normie's computer?

Normies literally use linux more than the average /g/aymur
>>
Lightweight distros run blazing fast even on garbage hardware such as old prebuilts and netbooks.

>>51597728
Yeah. The correct term is "normalfags" or "normalfaggots", "normies" reeks of reddit.
>>
>>51599785
Distros like Mint and Ubuntu have great support for most hardware.

Anyone have the one with the "free lobster dinner" toolbar?

video and audio processing is a lot quicker on the same hardware on linux

More than likely, any time someone who's written a book on Linux meets him, they give him a copy.

Nice aesthetic, faster, smaller install space for my SSD, easier to use once setup than windows.
