    @Haxk20 well, it cannot be Microsoft, they don't know how to make bugs a feature

    @Keran well Microsoft knows to make a feature that bugs you out(ads in the developers preview)
    Apple makes something random and sees if they got a feature also got in there

    @gitlog, Linux is bad too, everyone should be on Chrome OS, it's the future.

    @Keran I think DOS would be even better

    @Keran you do realize that ChromeOS is based on Linux, right?

    @Condor oh gosh, I hope they gave to Linux owners a financial compensation...

    @Keran the licence (GPL2) only requires source to be given back in case of edits, which Google does yes.. Now the OEM's of Android devices (which also use the Linux kernel) on the other hand...

    @Condor just kidding 😊
    But I didn't knew for chrome OS! Thanks dude, that's why I love DevRant, I always learn something.

    @Keran hehe, glad I was able to teach you something :)
    You'll find Linux in a lot of places actually. Phones, Chromebooks, IoT, servers, and a lot of other places where stability and most importantly customizability by the manufacturer (to fit nicely into their appliance) is required. The reason is mainly because it's really reliable (when it runs, it's pretty much guaranteed to be able to run for months or even years) but also because there's really not many options out there when it comes to kernels. There's Windows NT (which is proprietary, not very reliable and MS would definitely charge a licensing fee and compensation for them to configure and compile it instead of the OEM), so that's not an option. Next there's BSD which used in a handful of places where security is of utmost importance, because BSD is built from the ground up with security in mind. And then there's Linux which is used in a bazillion places, because it supports a truckload of hardware, is extremely customizable and is completely freely available (in terms of liberty and beer). And lastly there's Hurd but I'm still waiting for that to run outside of QEMU... Development of it has stalled when Linux came around. So yeah, NT, BSD, Linux and Hurd.. with Linux being the most prevalent.

    @Condor wow, thank you sensei 👏
    I knew it for when you have a server for example, but I didn't knew that it could be used in so many places

    Haha, due to a miss in communication we turned off the weekly email feature for everyone. Now we're just saying it's a special feature, and that you can only enable it per request 😂
