I actually like Linux, but I'm considering just blocking all the Linux communities because it's so incredibly boring to just see you guys circle jerking all day long. We get it. We all get it.

My guy, you are on linuxmemes lmao

I came here hoping to see gnome and X11 memes. You know, actual Linux memes.

Instead I found "Windows bad" circlejerking.

Distros and package managers are bad. Reject modernity, embrace compiled source. Burn Lennart Pottering at the stake!

No, I'm on All, but a far higher percentage than most other content is just the same message in slightly different words on repeat, "Linux good, Binbows bad."

[-] [email protected] 51 points 8 months ago

But have you heard the latest hilarious thing? Windows... BAD! Hahaha! My goodness, I'm sure you never could have imagined. Also, I use Arch, in case you were wondering.

[-] manefraim 34 points 8 months ago

Binbows isn't that bad, it's Michaelsoft as a company we should worry about.

I mean just go ahead and block it, why make this rant at all, if you are seeing it on All its because of the amount of Linux users on Lemmy.

Calm down MacOS hasn't done shit to make it better. They decide what you do and don't get, daddy apple already made the decision and you have to deal with it.

"We did the thinking for you, and you'll like it." Might as well be their slogan.

It's 2023 and Apple is a trillion dollar company, and they still don't have window snapping/tiling in OSX. I don't have anything positive to say about their OS lol.

GUI? Yes.

UNIX command line? Six of one half dozen of the other versus Linux in my experience.

But yeah. I love i3wm and it's a real bummer that you can't do something like that with macos. I use yabai, which is nice, but i3 it ain't.

I don't agree with the Mac one.

The Mac UI is basically windows 3.1.

It's absolutely awful.

Also, windows will never brick your machine because of a full hard drive. My wife has a shitty MacBook air. She filled the drive completely. The OS can no longer function. It boots and that's it. You can't open anything, you can't delete anything. Every single click says free up HDD space, even deleting files.

It's so fucking bad.

The almost exact same thing happened to a friend of mine using Windows 11. The machine booted, but he was unable to log in.

Also windows 10 updates has twice deleted all my files, I am now no longer on windows.

Your wife’s experience sucks, but having done IT for sizable orgs in the past, my experience was that OS X and Apple’s hardware usually needed less coddling than the various Windows machines. Although they did have some lemon OS releases here and there, and those fucking keyboards from several years back were the devil.

Any OS is going to have anecdotal horror stories. If you want to get a real read on reliability you really need more than a sample size of 1. You need scale.

[-] FourPacketsOfPeanuts 22 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

You need scale

Can't scale. Hard drive full.

Lol Apple absolutely does not do that... They just add extra crap nobody wants.

Meanwhile yesterday I fucked up my linux installation trying to find alternatives on how to be use the wheel click without having things pasted with it :/

I'll be trying again when I am not lazy to reinstall it again.

[-] [email protected] 46 points 8 months ago* (last edited 8 months ago)

Click "Activities" in the upper right and search for "tweaks", click the "Tweaks" icon. Select "Keyboard & Mouse" and turn "Middle Click Paste" to "off".

For Gnome ^ but I'm at work and can't confirm.

If you install windows and set the language to be english (world), there will be no preinstalled BS apps like tiktok.

Of course most people wont do that

I tried Windows 11 on an old laptop I had. Experience:
"Why the hell is TikTok installed?"
Clicks icon
"Installing TikTok"
"No, you retard!"

For whatever reasony work tools on Linux aren't working right now, so I am using win10 for the moment.

The start menu is a fucking nightmare. I don't care about what's on the internet when I am looking for my software. This isn't a mobile phone.

What's even worse is that I know what the name of my software is. But half the time, when I use the start menu, the web results and ads load first and it takes a while to show my software, if it ever shows up at all.
