Windows is freedom. Choose freedom.

Windows programs from 20 years ago will still run flawlessly today. Linux programs from 20 years ago won't run unless you recompile, and good luck compiling 20 year old source code that depends on weird obscure headers and libraries that might literally not exist anywhere on the internet. That's not even counting the obsolete versions of libraries that it may depend on, which can't coexist with the modern versions. This is why Linux has less software: developers don't want to have to keep rewriting and bugfixing their stuff forever, they want to Write Once, Run Foreverâ„¢. Windows users can choose to use versions of software from 2005 if they want to, or they can use the latest and most modern versions.

This. Linux is bad for your freedom because it has less useful apps which reduces your freedom of choice.

I've used Linux before, and I agree that this is a real problem. AppImages could probably solve it.
AppImages are basically files with programs and all their needed libraries and stuff bundled into the file. I think they are perfect for distributing portable programs for Linux.

>>83823243
too bad nobody uses them and everyone pushes flatpacks and snaps

>>83823243
>AppImages could probably solve it.
Except that, in true linux fashion, there are like 5 different competing standards for nu-apps like snap, flatpak, appimage, and probably a bunch of obscure ones that I don't know about since I'm not a lincuck. There are a bunch of competing standards for audio systems, init systems, display servers, and desktop environments, meaning that nothing is well integrated with each other. Even something as simple as:
>power button is set to sleep the computer
>if power button is pressed, put the computer to sleep
>unless the screen is turned off - then just turn the screen back on, because the user might mistake a turned-off screen for a sleeping computer and intend to turn the computer back on
this is a very simple windows feature that reduces annoyance and 10-second delays, but LINUX could never have this because it requires coordination between the kernel, acpid, and X/wayland - which will never be coded properly.

I used to use Gentoo at work. But then everyone made fun of me, not just Dave the project manager but even the Ubuntards on my team. Angry at this, I decided to lift heavy weights each evening instead of working on my side project. I built up so much rage that one day I decided to pirate Windows 10 and burn it onto a DVD. I went into work, and without hesitation I wiped my Gentoo installation. I didn't even make sure my code was all pushed before I did it.

Within hours, I found I was more productive. No need to fiddle with macros or keybindings. No config or software to compile. No constant googling how to get things to work. I was finally free to just code. After a few weeks of churning out code, I was knocking it out of the park. My boss demanded I get a raise. Nobody made fun of my setup. Any accusations of bugs in my code were met with cold hard stares. 0 defects raised since the Windows install.

Stacy in Marketing wanted my feedback for the new website. I gave her detailed feedback, and then I also gave her a bucketload of my cum right there in the conference room. Rajeesh in QA saw the whole thing, and he gave me a high five on the way back to my desk. I went back to getting stuff done, like a real man.

Linux isn't just an operating system, it's a mindset. It's for people who would waste days for their time to tinker with something that will only save them a fraction of a second. It's for the idealist, who talks about 'freedom' in the abstract and seeks approval, not for someone who is willing to get physical to assert his freedom. Going back to Windows will change your life. It's certainly changed mine.

Yeah, that sucks. I think Linux users may just be mentally retarded if they can't figure out which one is better.
Snaps and flatpaks need you to download extra software to download software, while you can just download an AppImage and run it on your Linux system.

WSL sucks ass. NTFS performance is terrible. Networking is borked. There are no permant terminals to connect to it. The list goes on. Really wished it was the solution that would make Windows usable...
