love it when someone has a problem with linux and linux users are like "your problem is invalid"

"have you considered being less stupid lmao"

"it's not linux's fault this software doesn't work as well on linux" ok. well. that doesn't change the fact that people won't have a great experience with it

"you just think this is a problem because you're inherently biased against linux for some reason. actually microsoft is paying you"

in case you couldn't tell this is subtooting the takes people are having on the LTT linux video

like. come on

do you want linux to keep being a weird tech nerds only OS or

it's the strangest form of gatekeeping

i think the problem with a lot of linux people is that they assume the two types of computer users are

people who only use their computers for web browsing and email

and hyper-nerds who have the time and energy to stop everything they're doing for a couple weeks and learn an entirely new workflow

which is pretty convenient for them, because linux works great for those two types of people

in the several years i've been using linux, there's definitely been effort on the development side of things to reach the people in the middle (especially in the GNOME project, those folks are doing great work)

but the takes i see from Online Linux People are. not that


@xnx38h I find it pretty weird that people are still like that. I guess that as I grew out of that I also stopped being an “online Linux person”. I use Linux as my daily driver but I don’t talk about it much, and I certainly don’t take it personally when others complain about it. Heck, I have plenty of complaints about it myself.
