One small step and a giant leap for a snail — 5 Comments

  1. Linux has advanced quite a bit over the last few years. I’m currently using Kubuntu which is nice.

    The only issue that I have with Linux is that there are about 6 ways to do anything and everyone has their fav and it is the end of the world if you want something else. Then they get all huffy and won’t help you with your DVD player issue because you chose a version of the calculator they don’t like. Bunch of prima donnas.

    In saying that nowadays you don’t need them. The main issue for most is the lack of brand name software that people insist on. I can’t run, name brand here, therefore I need windoze or Apple. Once software will be able to run on Windoze or Linux without issue then we should see it taking off. Maybe the next 30 years or so.

    • One of the biggest advantages of Linux is that it’s free and open source. This is also its biggest drawback. They could easily produce Linux versions of popular products but there’s no profit in it. So it’s up to Linux enthusiasts to try to emulate the Windoze software, for example like Gimp, for Photoshop.

  2. Update to Windows 11? Nope, not gonna do it. It might take away my GRUB menu. Not gonna do it. Not gonna…not…

    Where’s that button?
