    iPads and macs are Open group certified Unix but they are NOT Linux and when people suggest otherwise it makes me want to light myself on fire

    WRONG WRONG WRONG

    I’m not saying that the premise is wrong, it’s absolutely not, Unix systems and Linux in particular as a posix-like are champ several times over in terms of stability and popularity but to say iOS is Linux is wrong. It’s XNU/Darwin

    Most of the Linux things aren't machines with direct end user interface, for good reason.

    Except Android devices - and that's a Linux so windowsed that it doesn't matter anymore. Also, Fuchsia is likely to throw out Linux from that market anyway.

    @Fast-Nop there is no good reason, as you’ve cited the counter example I feel this should warrant no explanation; KDE is gorgeous as well.

    The fact is the “wonderful” UI of windows and macos is really what’s wrong with them, and the average Linux user knows that they would rather have something more functional than that. Now I understand why some people think this makes for a “worse” end user experience on Linux, but I would assert that for me and many like me it is /strictly/ superior.

    And even for the former group, there’s kde and gnome. Take your pick.

    Being popular and being used are two different things.

    iOS is built on UNIX, I think.

    @FrodoSwaggins I've had Linux as only desktop OS from 2001-2010 and was fed up enough with this shit that I changed for Win7. Though MS has lowered the bar so much with Win10 that desktop Linux looks competetive again.

    Oh, and Windows Server is a thing.

    GNU is Not Unix

    Pretty sure popularity relies on more factors than the different usages and shit but hey, enjoy the Linux jerk off post and I'll be on my merry way.

    @Stuxnet dude, the Linux circle jerk is what makes it soo good.

    @Haxk20 I agree and never said otherwise.

    @Fast-Nop the bar was never high but I agree the bar has hit a new low even for MS with win10

    How to mislead the truth:
    - windows is the most popular on pc market share
    - it exists also for servers, atm, pos, iot, hololens...

    Overall linux has more devices, but who cares, try again

    Linux rocks, Linux ftw, windows sucks, switch to linux /s

    (classic linux fanboys posts)

    @dontbeevil more devices and its still not most used OS ? You must be fucking kidding me.

    @dontbeevil you know what? I give you a challenge. Download and install Ubuntu in VM or old PC and use it for few days.if you hate UI then change it ! Just play with it. Install apps.

    @Haxk20 who did ever say that windows is the most used OS (overall)?

    @sunfishcc NASA uses Linux

    Inaccurate on so many levels

    @zvyn they use windows, linux, mac os, VMS (OpenVMS)... In order of percentage
  • 0
    @dontbeevil do you have any source? I highly suspect that this only applies to PCs
    Edit: my point was that they use a lot of stuff and saying "NASA uses X" as an argument against Y doesn't make sense (see the comment I replied to)
