Wow I didn’t expect this to be so long!!!
@NoMad I actually wanted to talk about that. You do have full posix Power if you need it. BUT it has a built in safety feature that prevents you from breaking the system. It’s also there to minimize the attack surface of s root escalation attack. You can turn it off, but requires quite s but if effort - you need to be in recovery mode. I find that to be really good training wheels if your just learning how to shell
@windlessuser hey! Someone remembered who I am!
Anyways. The reason that I don't like windows / osx / iOS is because I like having the large amount of power that a Linux shell gives me.
To me, it's very fun to learn how computers and operating systems work and I enjoy learning and memorizing a lot of commands.
For the record.. I actually like windows.. (only win94, win3.1, and MS-DOS4) the rest suck....
You can guess why I like those versions.. they all are still built around dos and so I can still do anything I want from the terminal and the terminal only.
The other thing is customization... I don't like iOS / osx (and windows) because it requires way more effort than it should to make a simple customization.
Of you want to change your launcher on Android, install an app
If you want to switch to a new desktop environment on Linux (arch) .. let's say i3-gaps
pacaur -S i3-gaps
Anyways.. those are my thoughts.
Wow.. that was probably the longest comment I have ever made..
M on Mac and iPhone... love them a lot... but some things like no file manager on iOS do bother me...
Also, Mac gets my work done no probs... it’s smooth and fast and very intuitive... I love it... but I wish it had more customizability 😭 that is the only thing it lacks 😕 ( as in window manager, and stuff )
That is a reason why m very excited about chunkwm... tiling window manager for Mac OS 😍😍😍
I don't agree with some of your opinions so here we go:
- Linux requiring an intricate knowledge to use it. Imo and ime that's simply not true. My parents, sister and quite some very a-technical people I know use it and they don't even have the slightest technical knowledge but from most people I haven't heard a single thing. It just works for them.
Things never going smoothly - although I can't speak for all or even a tiny part of the Linux users worldwide, for the Linux users I know, everything just works fine without any issues and has been working fine for about 7 years now.
- Mac working good/intuitive/simple. I've had to work with it for a little and I can't work with their freaking interface. Same goes for my sister who has tried it, she just doesn't get how it works. Friend of mine used it daily and he still doesn't find it intuitive after years. This again doesn't go for everyone but I think this is more of an opinion than a fact. Also I can't speak for all Mac users of course.
- iOS hardly different than Android. Sorry but nope. Shitloads of things on these two systems are different. I've tried working with iPhone myself but nope.
- Ecosystems. They're fine! As long as they give the users freedom to do as they please and also possibly interact with other ecosystems.
Last but not least, in a past-snowden era I find it highly irresponsible to use closed source software. Since companies like apple and Microsoft are stationed in the US and their operating systems are closed source, they could be forced to build in backdoors through gag orders. Next to that we know that those companies are in the prism surveillance system meaning that the nsa can get access to their data anytime.
I don't have any good word for these companies and their software.
All just my opinion/2 cent :)
