Are you never worried how Linux is so picky

Reddit - Mon, 2016-07-11 07:05

Sometimes I might rant about a set of glitches I found in a Linux desktop. I am blamed of using some certain distro. "That is a toy distro and is known to have problems."

Then I might come across some problem close to hardware, such as suspend/hibernate not working properly, or display brightness going multiple steps with one keypress. This time I am blamed for using the wrong hardware. "That OEM is not working closely enough with the kernel developers. Use Dell, Lenovo or System76 laptop."

This leads to a situation where I have to distro-hop and computer-hop to find the perfect combination in which the stars are aligned. Maybe some young MacGyvers actually enjoy this kind of tinkering and exploring, but eventually it starts to get tiring and just unprofessional. I also lose time and money.

I am asking, has Linux gotten already too picky about software and hardware? Where is the dream of Linux fitting like a glove on any computer? A smooth experience like designed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak.

Growth in Communities Drives Success, Says ASF's Ross Gardler

LXer - Mon, 2016-07-11 05:22
Great news! It’s totally working. The very concept behind the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) -- a group of disparate yet dedicated people building software for the public good -- has proven successful and fruitful for the 21st year in a row. The indomitable community spirit dedicated to openness and innovation shows absolutely no sign of slowing down.
