Definitely something. I'm going back to open source non shitty corporation shit that wants to track my every move. Steam works now on Linux so there doesn't seem to be limitations rly
Yeah. Not being open source has nothing to do with your issues.

Open the fucking ports on the firewall for your torrents. :rolleyes:

She's right though, windows has all these major problems - nobody's ever successfully downloaded a torrent on windows and shit won't open half the time, but we've got too much pride in ourselves to admit it and switch to the loonix.

I use LOONIX to keep track of my CloudKey™.

I use W10 on my main machine because I use all sorts of crappy design tools that still don't run right under linux, and if I'm not using those tools, usually I'm in a web browser window.

I still use linux command line a fair bit for stuff like compiling/running my crappy C programs. Either I'll fire up a debian image in WSL, or ssh into my home server.

Last time I was on Linux it wasn't half a user friendly as it is now. It's a no brainer. I never understood why huge places don't use it and save a shit ton of cash. Capitalism I guess.

I use OS X on my main machines, because I run code on remote machines, so 95% of the time, I'm dealing with continuous integration tools like Jenkins, and it matters fuck-all what editor I use, because as long as I've got git, I'm good.

Uhhh, because people are fucking stupid. I can't imagine a worse IT nightmare than a company switching its users to Linux. :lol: "Save" on licensing and spend it on IT FTEs!!!

We use mostly OS X here.

Windows for the gaming rig, and the box that runs Zwift for @Mrs. Valve.
Same, except I don't have a "Zwift" anything.

I do keep a server/HTPC that runs Debian linux, because fuck figuring out shit I've had running since 1997 on linux (literally this time, @fly) under windows.

Zwift is the cycling software used for training and group rides. Hooks up to the smart trainer the bike is mounted on.
