How does it feel knowing that the year of the Linux desktop will never happen and Google is far more likely to obsolete the GPL, the linux kernel and the GNU coreutils with it's own homegrown kernel and operating system within your lifetime?

If you don't believe me, recall the last time you installed GNU/Linux from scratch and count the number of times you had to google how to do something because you encountered an issue you weren't already familiar with
If it's more than ZERO, you've already alienated 99% of computer users due to how user hostile the operating system is.
I'll give an example with all the issues i got the last time I installed debian stretch, every meme arrow indicates a point where a clueness user would be forced to look up their problems on stackoverflow or elsewhere.

I bought an iPhone 6 when it was released. It started to go slow, and then that recent update kicked life back into it somehow, and it is working fine. I guess I've been lucky because everything works well, and my battery is still in good condition - considering that I've been using it since late 2014. I have no intention to buy a new phone until it breaks - when it does I will buy an iPhone, mainly because I'm invested in their eco-system and I use FaceTime a lot (both for my job, and the majority of family and friends). I also used a MacBook Pro from 2015 that still works well, and I hope it doesn't break because fuck those new keyboards, and lack of magsafe. I don't know why people have to hate a brand, or hate people that buy from a certain company.
>>
>>68898556
Yes, this is true. It's not just phones - millennials are really, really stupid with money, full stop. It's why their existence is so wretched.

I'm 20 years old, self taught and have a good paying job. Here in Austria you can go to evening school to get your high school diploma (what I did). My parents have a lot of dept so I had to support myself.

I'll start studying next year because I want to move to the us and you have to have at least some type of diploma or a work visa.

Getting your fist job will be the most difficult thing.

Are lawmakers really not knowledgeable about technology? I'd understand if they didn't know you can sideload apps on Android or something, but not knowing that Apple makes iPhones seems a bit absurd. I mean, every iPhone has the Apple logo on the back of it.
