      The whole Linux scene is such a shitshow for anyone who wants some kind of macOS replacement. I’ve used Linux for several years before realizing how much time it wastes and stress it causes

      No distro is able to fit 3 parameters. Stable, fast, and not-shit-design. Ubuntu just got slower and uglier. Elementuary OS is unstable and slow. There’s almost no reason to use Linux from day to day

      On macOS I have a sensible and polished OS that works and looks nice out of the box. It’s not as fast as it could be but does the job. With Linux this doesn’t exist. If your distro works it probably looks like shit from 20 years ago. Fanboys will argue that it’s your job to spend hours customizing it to something not ugly. With macOS I get UI designed by people who have even the smallest sense of style

      If you have a problem with a distro it’s your fault for not knowing everything. It works on myachine so that means it should work on yours automatically and you’re doing things wrong

      There is no one Linux OS. There are multiple shitty attempts. If the community focused on one distro we could have something on par with macOS. But nothing can compete because the casual user isn’t in mind. It’s made for people who want to spend hours tinkering with broken parts that keep breaking

      It’s funny how a lot of people just argue macOS sucks and Linux gives privacy. I’m practically trading my computer for a toy using Linux. If privacy even is that real on Linux, it’s the only asset it has. It can’t compete with macOS. I don’t even have to argue that macOS has software and games against Linux because that would be murder by freaking words

          I assume you haven’t used it in year since then? Seems stable and fast enough for Valve/Steam to use it on their upcoming handheld.

            I wouldn’t know what Steam is doing, but I moved away from KDE somewhere in late 2019 and settled for xfce DE and so far I have no complaints.

              I wish my desktop worked this well and looked this nice 20 years ago, On the other hand macOS’ desktop does feel like a desktop form 20 years back, with some fancy visual effects and styling slapped on top.
              >people who have even the smallest sense of style
              But no sense of functionality. GNU/Linux is simple by default and powerful when needed. macOS is simple by default and that’s it. A simple OS for simple minds.
              >it’s your fault for not knowing
              Yes. There is documentation. You should read it
              >there is no one Linux OS
              Which is expected, the kernel is only one part of a functional operating system.
              >the casual user isn’t in mind
              Good, since when is expecting users to know what they’re doing a bad thing?
              >trading my computer for a toy using Linux
              And i’m trading mine for a brick when using macOS, this garbage doesn’t support anything in my computer besides my NIC and video card. What a joke.

              GNU/Linux has all the software I need.
              >macOS has games
              If all you play is angry birds and whatever else ARMshit is meant for, sure. Anything beyond that requires emulating x86 and running direct3d on top of vulkan on top of metal.

              >TL:DR
              OP is a scrote as usual, of the mac variety, no less. Take your fruity toys and GTFO.

              I’ve been a full time programmer for 5 years and cannot imagine using GNU+Linux for my 9-5. A couple times a year I check in on some distros with some spare laptops I have and every time it’s an awful experience, like regressing 20 years of personal computing developments.

              It’s a shame, too, because macOS has increasingly gotten worse since apple seems to care less about it, focusing more on iOS.

              OpenBSD really is the only good OS remaining but I need to buy the EXACT correct hardware for everything to work ootb. Maybe I will once I need a new machine or if macOS continues to go down the shitter.

      Unironically popOS. It has a uniform and decent out of the box look while being stable since it’s woke af on ubuntu. It’s also nice to have an ISO version pre-bundeled with Nvidia drivers. Most DEs are memes besides GNOME if you want a "it just werks" replacment for Win/MacOS enviroments. Even though it’s compareably slower than most of the other gazillion DEs, even the big ones like KDE/XFCE, it can actually handle multiple monitors and scaling properly.

        Gnu+Linux distributions will never be accessible this way for normal people, even IF all those issues are fixable

        the Steam Deck launch will be a giant shitshow and it will be glorious

        people think they’ll get a console that can play video games out of the box?? LMAO I doubt it
        looking forward to Valve finally crashing and burning

        macOS doesn’t have these loonix problems

        I know but I have/had a second Windows machine because I love gaymen and now that Steam is going to release their Steam Deck I thought maybe MAYBE Gnu+Linux is ready for me using it to casually browse the web, watch movies and play games. apparently that’s too much to ask

        Can you name some of these supposed config files and settings you changed in this story that totally happened? I’m dying to know.

      I agree with you, the only usable Linux experience is xfce, kde can sort of pass if you’re okay with rebooting daily/weekly and the weird bugs kde comes along with. Gnome is only for those who use just a web browser and maybe one other app, its also perfectly usable for Linux YouTubers which is why gnome gets so much praise online but honestly the only real usable and perfectly stable environment is xfce at the end of the day, yes it looks like trash by default but you can easily theme it ( just make sure to pick good themes so you don’t get weird black text on black bg or white text on white bg – me personally I use the adwaita themes since they are the most consistent / usable / bug free.)

      All in all though, kde/gnome/twms are all memes and most people who want to work actually use xfce.

      That’s your problem. You fell for the memes. A fully-pozzed integrated GUI experience is unfeasible in the FOSS world. It’s too much work, because such things are bullshit piled upon bullshit. It requires constant maintenance from a team of professionals, like the body of a post-op chud. It is at odds with the essence of the computer. It is a sandcastle made of sand.

      What’s the most stable UI that has a file picker in linux?
      Xfce? I dont care about ricing, if it looks like freaking windows 98 I dont care either.
      I just want an UI stable, fast and with basic features such as a file picker, search, and a menu where I can put shortcuts

      I believe this is bait.
      But I’d like to answer your thread nevertheless.
      I think there’s a lot of bad designs in GNU/Linux, but it’s a community non-profit driven thing (generally).
      Sure, it’s not an excuse to put out a subpar (sometimes) product, compared to other things in the market.
      But also, there is all kinds of people, some people have the time to tinker with their computer, and some people enjoy it too.
      There’s really nothing inherently wrong with being fascinated with technology, yes even the silly things about configuring and stuff, really do make you learn in some shape or form.
      And honestly as a Linux user I find nothing wrong with using Windows at all, in fact, I simply encourage it, since it’s the user the one that matters on that decision.
      At the end of the day, if you’re gonna complain about this, you should try encouraging some change in a constructive manner, not posting on some anonymous board.
      Serious people do things, ignorants simply talk, think, and end up doing nothing.
      And to be honest, despite feeling ashamed of it, I am the latter kind of person.
