Fucking love it when the windows copy/move dialog gets stuck at 100% with 0 items remaining and I can't get rid of the damn window for 20 seconds.

Windows is obviously the superior OS.

    @Stuxnet I guess you're right. It still dominates the world, and since most big boi companies aren't interested in developing their software for linux, this will probably never change.

    @Bybit260 something that if opened, gives you virusses

    It's fair imo. All the oses have this delay, esp when copying to another filesystem, esp when copying to another device. Except others may not be showing it.

    It's pretty much impossible to predict how long syncing to disk takes after the device firmware said it was done with the copy/move.

    Isn't that just because it waits for the hdd cache to clear so all the DAUs do not unplug their external hdd too soon?

    @Emphiliis And rightfully so. Indicating that an operation is finished when it isn't finished is just bad user interface design. Especially in a multitasking system where the user can easily go on with other things in the foreground instead of having to wait.

    @Fast-Nop It may as well be intentional, since non-tech people would likely get confused or scared if they saw "waiting for disk cache to flush"

    @hitko osx -- I'd agree.

    Unix/linux -- It's hell of a task to find such a user who would be non-tech 😁

    @hitko Yeah, and what purpose would that even have? Those who are tech savvy will know anyway that the delay after 100% is from syncing. The rest of the people would not even know what a disk cache is, but they do understand that the dialogue just isn't closing yet.
