… calling this a Windows replacement:
Because it is something totally different, a different operating system with a different user experience. So why the fuk does everybody just calls and imagines this …
… as a mere Windows replacement and treats it as such? Why is everybody complaining about missing games support, bad office suites, graphics software that can’t 100% replace Photoshop? Why aren’t the Mac users complaining about all that? Mac is the worst system for gamers and is nearly missing the minimal demands for Second Life. Yet nobody complains.
Linux ain’t Windows! And it was never supposed to replace windows, ffs. Mac wasn’t either. They are different from Windows, and decidedly and proudly so. As a matter of fact are MacOS and Linux closer relatives, both being Unix offsprings, than Windows is to anything else. Coming to think of it: Windows is really the odd kid out. The durty lil DOS punk, missing the noble Unix pedigree.
So quit your whining about Libre Office ain’t as fancy as Microsoft Office! They both do the same job and Libre even is so nice and friendly and tolerant and is 99.9% compatible with MS Office. It is MS Office being 0% compatible with anything else. You’re driving to work every morning, you don’t Toyota to work, do ya? And even if, my apologies to all Toyota owners here, you could do basically the same in a VW, a Nissan, a Porsche, a Ford, a Yugo, a Lada, a Ferrari or a Chevy, no? Look, Linux can be all of those and doesn’t even ask you to take the bus. =^.^=
