Why is FOSS just easier to use on macOS? Posted on May 21, 2023 by Anonymous Why is FOSS just easier to use on macOS?
Because it's dogshit.
Filtered by CLI.
Linux uses don't usually care how long it takes to install something, because they are jobeless NEETs who live in their mom's basements
apt install gimp
Oh my god linux is so hard and time consming!
>because they are jobeless NEETs who live in their mom's basements
Linux is the reason I earn so much money.
Your mum is cringe
>just run muh apt install
I've run into so many packages that required a different meme server than the only ones in the system, and it is often a nightmare to sort it out. Also sometimes package names change, just look at fucking docker.
>repo jannies forgot to unlink that one dependency they removed ten years ago
it shonestly not. a lot of the time the uis dont work porperly.
gimp multiwindow ui is constantly broken on my mac.
>not using homebrew or nix
>using either over pkgsrc and pkgin
from the mac side, FOSS generally doesn't work well. It does work though, so if you need it, it's there, but it works differently than native apps, is always clunky, and let's not even talk about the visuals.
So I'd say it probably is easier to use on linux.
is this really how you install stuff on macOS or is this just a meme? what's the fucking point? did they find they it's easier for boomers or something?
yes you just drag an application to the applications folder. Or whereever you want to run it from. There are also installers.
As for the rest of your questions, they are stupid and I won't address them.
how is it stupid, you fucking idiot? how is this better than just pressing install buttom? are you the spamming pathetic lowlife that post these threads constantly?
>yeah bro you just drag the icon bro
no shit, dumbass. I see that. what's the point of your comment if you are not gonna answer the question.
I did answer the question you stupid dumbfuck. You drag the goddam application to the fucking folder. That's it.
Everything else you asked 'is this a meme' 'whats the fucking point' etc are stupid questions because you're a stupid motherfucker who posts stupid shit to get attention from people that you desperately hope will like you.
Now I've answered the question twice you stupid fuck. Maybe quit fingering your asshole all day and try to learn something before you post again.
Like me? We or an an anonymous website you brainless cocksucker. If you can't explain it just shut your whore mouth next time.
you reek of reddit and you post like a 14 year old who is upset because he realized his fathers dick tastes like his brothers ass
Apps in MacOS are just folders that the GUI pretends are single executables. You install them by copying them wherever you want and clicking on them. 9 times out of 10 though they go into the Applications folder.
It's macOS not MacOS, sugar.
I recently learned that to install something on macos from a file you need to click said file and then a window opens where you need to drag and drop app into a folder (ignore whatever is cytosplore, just the first gif I found).
What the fuck?
This can't be real, this looks like some shit from a movie where they needed to show that hackerman installs something on a computer.
then when you're done you have to drag the mountpoint to the trash can to "eject" it
no you don't you stupid gorilla poorfag nagger, I use cli to install stuff anyway because I'm not filtered by cli, but you can just right click and eject the dmg at any time, you never even touched a mac in your life besides a store, I bet your trannypad will start spinning it's fans just to show an image that is 1/10th of my screens resolution
I'm using a mac right now anon
Is that a FF fork or just ricing? If it's the latter I would be interested in your configuration
Ignore my post. I can't read.
>edge on mac
why would you do this to yourself?
glownaggers and street shitters already have every iota of info about you
literally everybody has all your data at that point so it doesnt matter what you use at that point
lol dumb cattle
Of course it doesn't matter when you're stuck thinking like that.
It syncs with all my other computers nigga
why i use OSX
has unix power on tap
and easy to use interface.
werkz on my machine
it just werks unlike linoox
the real question here is, who the fuck would use g(uhnome)imp(ed) on MacOS???
>Look ma, I'm so extremely retarded I'm completely unable to open the software store and click install
Tell us, anon, what are you, a nagger or a femoid?
>Mom, can we get GIMP?
>You already have GIMP in the appstore!
>The GIMP in the appstore
in case you can't tell it's a fucking browser extension with a tiny GIMP inside it lmfao
>Look ma, I keep being retarded and can't even understand software stores not only exist on phones and apple operating systems
So you're female then.
damn it's a paradox
Call me when they allow users to change the saving directory by default.
>Why is FOSS just easier to use on macOS?
not sure. why does macOS attract so many child sex offenders that it needed to implement a filter to stop its userbase from uploading child porn?
>>I WANT TO DRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG
you can do that in linux, retard, its called an appimage
kdenlive: no hardware acclamation
kde connect: doesn't work
also, if you are not compiling your program, it is the same thing as using a fucking proprietary crap.
Why is paid and closed source software just easier to use on Linux?
>this would have to be compiled from source to install on macOS
>this comes with Windows
>>this would have to be compiled from source to install on macOS
Well it WAS closed source, at one point. But still, to get an executable on gayOS you gotta fucking compile it. Compared to a 1 click install on all the Linux distros worth using.
because you're a gorilla nagger
compiling keeps your room warm as a bonus
