    They are seriously tempting fate. Remember the IE lawsuit?

    You can go all linux. You are just afraid.

    @Haxk20 well guess who is trying out elementary os on his 11years old laptop (an it's working)

    I don't see much of an issue there. People who really like FF/Chrome will install it anyways.

    Newbies are encouraged to try a browser they didn't check on yet (edge doesn't suck that much).

    Everyone should be happy ^^

    Do like me, on my next computer I buy I will go all Linux. I did the same with iPhone and Light theme, after some years I switched and it feels so good.

    If you want an other reason to make the switch: https://fossbytes.com/windows-10-st...

    Why haven't you gone all Linux already?

    @Gaveuxifort Might have some specific software, games, etc. There are many reasons that could prevent one from making the switch.

    @Jilano ouch. that sucks

    @Haxk20 not everybody can tho...

    If I move to all linux, I can't move all of the work I have to because Hitfilm Pro, FLStudio and CLIP studio don't work on linux.

    Yes, there are *alternatives*, but they don't work for my workflow as it would isolate me from colleagues a lot.

    @FinlayDaG33k You know there is awesome WINE or crossover

    @Haxk20 WINE is a steaming pile of shit.

    @Jilano

    understandable...when the majority of the community breathe on windows/Mac, it's hard to go pure Linux without causing inconveniences to others.

    So Google gets blamed by Europe for supposedly pushing its apps, but this is just fine? 🤔

    @dangerzone It was. There has been done so much in the last two years with Valve involved. I was unbelievably surprised when I tested Wine lately and it worked very well and easily even with newer software.

    I am very tense what will be possible in the next year!

    @netikras @linuxxx two of the same kind

    @dangerzone Nope. You just need to know how to use it. If you dont know how to use it then it miight be pile of shit but if you know how to use it then it really good tool.

    @jerodev no, it's not. They'll end up with a lawsuit over this for sure.

    @Haxk20 @Gaveuxifort I have to use Windows for work right now. I have no say in the matter.
  • 2
    @Jilano that's it, my next Windows installation would be Windows 7, it has BEAUTIFUL Aero Glass effect on taskbar and it doesn't do anything of that dumb shit

    @dangerzone in you're opinion it is, that's not a fact.

    For me it has been very good, never had trouble with it.

    @linuxxx WINE is so shit that it doesn't even come preloaded with windows fonts, which makes a lot of apps and games completely spazz out. I get that you love Linux, but sometimes it's OK to admit that something can be greatly improved upon.

    Tell me more about your leet emulator, I'll be using a VM in the meantime.

    @dangerzone This has nothing to do with me loving linux, read my comment again.

    @Haxk20 WINE is a nice idea, but using it for FL Studio and Hitfilm Pro is a huge pain (waaaaaaaay too much troubleshooting instead of actually being productive)
  • 0
    @dangerzone WINE legally can't come preloaded with WINE because of licensing since you're not allowed to redistribute it (downloading it from them, however, is a different story).

    Okay but I still can’t change the default browser on any iOS devices making it almost next to impossible to use one effectively.

    I’m all for this since Apple does the same fucking garbage.
