I’m confused. There is a hacker-news feed here, and I can see an interesting post I wanted to comment on:

Twtxt search says it’s there, but I can’t actually see the post. I do follow hacker-news on twtxt, but there’s only like 5 posts from there.

Is this expected or a bug?

I mean, if it is pretty good, why should we care if it is based on Ubuntu? 🤣

Haha, yeah, you’re right.

Yeah I’m using Windows for a bit of gaming. But most stuff on Steam actually works on Linux, via Wine. I think/hope you’re right, we’ll finally have a year of the Linux desktop 😁

Yeah, absoluteky. The closed source reason doesn’t make it trash. Sublime text is in no way trash, but is closed source and proprietary.

It’s the points I listed after, that gets me to the conclusion macOS is trash.

Signing is a great feature. But the gatekeeper shouldn’t be Apple.

8gb is huge. But I guess, like everything, it’s subjective.

@fastidious@arrakis.netbros.com yeah, I’m really fussy over software and a big supporter of the GPL/GNU/FSF stuff. So pretty much any proprietary software, I’m against 😛 I’m very unreasonable, I know 😛

But I really hate:

  • telemetry
  • signing/gatekeeping software
  • can’t actually download it in a nice iso
  • lots of legal conditions, like only allowed on Apple hardware. Can’t just buy the os.
  • closed source
  • its huge. Like GBs in size

Currently I use popOS on a System76 laptop. It’s pretty good, although I wish it wasn’t based on Ubuntu.

It always amazes me just how bad Microsoft’s “products” are. I actually thought Windows 95 to XP where really good, lightweight (relatively speaking) and flexible.

I got a Windows PC for gaming a while back, which is Windows 10 I think. The entire thing is just a cesspit of surveillance and adverts. But, with the added benefit, of having to pay for a closed source proprietary piece of garbage.

Why anyone would choose to use that over Linux or a Mac is beyond me. Don’t get me wrong, macOS is still trash. But miles better than that Windows disaster.
