    Mihle got a reaction from Lady Fitzgerald in Where do you draw the line on technology in your life?   
    US have data cap on home internet because US is still stone age when it comes to internet.
     
    There is no data cap on home internet here or almost all if not all of Europe. Zero. Nada. I could use 10+ TB in a month if I wanted to.
     
    And have been like the last 10++ years. Tho, 10++ years ago the speed wouldn't have been good enough to do 10 TB in a month....

    Gsync atm is just kinda pointless and proprietary, unlike adaptive sync which even Nvidia embraced back in january.

    It's the 2 antenna one, not the 3 antenna one, but yes.
     
    WiFi not working out of the box is something you should not have to deal with at all, not even if it's just pressing a button on a site and then press install. And that is even more than that, and that does keep people away from Linux. And it's not like it's the only case people come over either.

    You do mention "forced updates" quite a lot in this thread, but I don't think they're big of an issue as you seem to think. I, myself, have been bitten by them like 4 times ever since Win10 was launched and I haven't personally heard anyone else complain about them. Now, I'm not saying they aren't an issue for some people; I'm just saying I don't think there are as many people for whom they are a problem as you.
     
    Buggy updates are a related issue, but Linux isn't exempt from those, either. I have had Ubuntu practically destroying itself several times when I've done an upgrade from one version to the next, I've had Ubuntu become unbootable due to a kernel-bug and so on. Neither OS is perfect. (Can't say 'nuffin 'bout OSX, though)

    First time it was Ubuntu and second time it was Mint.
    First time was some years ago but I did not manage to get it to run on anything else than Intel integrated graphics. I had 7970 GHz edition.
     
    Second time was more recently, and it was more that stuff did require command like to set up and stuff, also some WiFi card issues. It's a Asus WiFi card. My brother had the same issues on Ubuntu recently and didn't bother with it and u installed it too. I did not get to even look at GPU stuff on there before I just gave up.
     
    I do run Unraid on my NAS tho.
     
    Forced updates on windows have never been a problem really for me.
    If people have a problem that it happens when they don't want to is ALWAYS people that almost never turn off their computer. If they did turn it off once a day or every two days, that's when the update would happen. If you want to have it on all the time, change the time you usually don't use in the settings.
     
    Also, don't know how many, but at least some of people that have had issues with updates on windows 10, and is tech interested, is people that have themselves made their computer update to a new version without their computer really wanting to. Microsoft do gradual rollout of updates for a reason.

    Does it really irk you that people have a positive experience with windows to the point you have to tell them they were both fortunate to have a good experience? Not only that but to question whether they are being honest with the experience because of "forced updates".  Lots of people having nothing but a positive experience with windows.  Stop being so ignorant.

    Anecdotal, I know people who aren't.  that doesn't mean shit.  I also know people who are using only phones now and aren't even using a desktop.  It's still all aneecdotal and doesn't mean shit.
    When windows was 98%? it was at 93% in 2001.   It has literally dropped a whole 4% in 18 years which can easily be accounted for in mac sales and people moving to android and ipad tablets instead of desktops.   Linux has moved from 0.2% to what? 0.8%. So what?  what do you think all that means?  if you think people switching to android/chromium is a representation of something specific then you are going to have to qualify that. Because those figures don't say what you think they do.
     
    Yep, ignoring android its gone from 0.2 to 0.8%.  So what? again that doesn't mean what you think it does.
    They don't teach people how to use office on a windows/mac PC.  Proof please.
     
     
    What was that that just went past?  Oh yeah the goal posted you are moving.  We are talking about desktop computers not mobiles and tablets.  Unless you can play far cry on your smart phone then it isn't even in the realm of this thread.
    EDIT: and don't forget that apart from misreading a wiki article that isn't always accurate, the other field relates to all devices that ship with any form of OS on it, like routers and switches and tv's etc.  Which is not relevant to this discussion by any stretch.
    I think you need to learn how statistics work and how to compare apples to apples.  If you want to discuss the growth of linux then fine, discuss away, but if you are going to stomp and carry on about which is better and then use the android mobile market share as some sort of evidence to support those claims then we are not discussing anything, we are just addressing why those correlations are meaningless at best and grossly misleading at worst.

    So here are my remarks on the subject:
     
     
     
     
     
    It's like I have said the whole time along,  this isn't about which is better (something you keep trying to argue with anecdote), but about how the market works.  You can't assume your little vacuum chamber of Linux enthusiasts is any representation of the wider market place.  It just isn't how these things work. 
     
     
     
    It does apply to every experience about an OS people are making in this thread.  Absolutely it does.  The issue is when you think that your experience trumps others or is a solid foundation for your ideals.   
     
    When it comes to the whole windows/Linux debate the only thing that matters is what the consumer wants and what is available.  Windows has the market share for hundreds of reasons, but most importantly because only some of them are about compatibility/performance, those reasons are what will hold Linux back.  E.G Until Linux has enough market share to warrant being included in the school curriculum, then people are going to be coming out of school only knowing how to use windows, this will naturally maintain the windows market share.  So if you want Linux to become anything other than what it is today you are going to have to convince a major part of the consumer market to do what it doesn't like doing.   I.E learn a new OS, and that is on top of making sure that Linux can match or better windows in every department from the average consumers perspective otherwise what do you think will happen when they do learn it and find out it is just the same or worse? They'll bag the shit out of it and you can kiss any chance of Linux becoming more popular goodbye.

    Stop using it then?  What are you hoping to achieve with this thread?   You don't like windows, we get it, but that's not going to change how the consumer market works.

    So what does that have to do with all this:
     
     
    None of that in bold has anything to do with what I said and is subjective at best.  As a consumer I am not going to stop using something that works (even if it has the occasional bug from the factory) to learn a new OS because someone else thinks it's better.    And for the record I have been using Linux for the better part of a decade now, this isn't about how good Linux is or isn't, it's simply how the market works.  Linux is not currently positioned to be a real alternative in the general consumer market, a simple google search will give you a million and one opinion pieces on that, but we don't need all that to know that the most obvious reason is that consumers simply don't want to think and don't like change. An OS is a product there to serve them not a hobby to be learnt.

    Some things really aren't better when they are smart, tbh sometimes they are even worse because they are a lot more complex for absolutely no practical reason.

    That particular argument is not even necessary to respond to, there is no contract, condition, requirement, deal or anything that forces any game dev to only use steam.  Nada, zip, nil, zilch, zero.   If a game is on steam only then that is because the game dev wants it that way of their own volition.  It doesn't even matter if the game is owned by valve without ties to steam,  they still have the option to release elsewhere should they want to.    Claiming otherwise is simply clutching at made up straws.

    And, you don't have to install Steam. I gave an example of 3 games that I did not for. I have even more from Humble bundle where Steam was optional.
    Where is this lie that we have to install Steam? To use Steam, I have to install Steam. But to play Steam games? I can list a ton that I can boot right now without Steam ever touching a computer.
     
    Yes I can. I can put a ton of games on my computer without Steam. I'm planning on keeping this PC going past Win 7 disconnection. Those games needing online DRM (multiplayer etc) will migrate. Those without, will run on this offline. Steam is not stopping that.
     
    What deal? Valve has released some games only through Steam. Their own games only cover this. THAT you can have for free as a "win", but Valve =/= Steam. So you'd have to argue about Valves business practice on releasing on PC, and find a way to insist *their* games are not DRM including (HL/CS/TF2/Portal/the mobas etc).
     
    Are there Steam "exclusives"? Why should Steam have a contract that says "you must release everywhere", when they have no saying on what other things devlopers do. Weird...

    I have spent less money on games the last two years than I would have if it was a subscription. I am not a person that plays lots of 15 hours games only, quite a bit of games(ofc not close to all) I play at least 80+ hours.

    Two things:
     
    1. I never mentioned the size of the a game library being justification for anything such thing. I merely pointed out that you can't use DRM to single out steam. 
    2. the fact you call something that I didn't so "petty" indicates you have very little to actually add to the conversation. When you can actually discuss this without lowering yourself to petulant insults I will continue to read what you have to say.

    You can legally get all  the games for free?    now you are talking about piracy as if that justifies what?
     
    Again, you are confusing your ideals and hatred for steam with actual facts.    BTW , the Bit I put in bold is purely against CS, it has nothing too do with the thread and is purely an attack.    If you can't discuss the topic then don't post.  
    You claimed Steam popularized DRM, failing to accept that DRM has been around decades before steam and that content has actually been far less impacted by DRM since steam is not up for debate.  If you wish to change your stance to only talk about steam then choose something that is actually debatable and stick to your arguments.   It's not just me that has interpreted your post the way it was, reading the thread at least 4 others also read the same thing.  If you genuinely think your inconsistencies are trivial then either explain why they are trivial yet still important enough to warrant being used in your argument or don't use them as part of your argument.

    And just because you're displaying your ignorance for the world to see, doesn't make your argument worth consideration.  I've tried to be understanding while presenting my viewpoint, but you're not arguing in good faith and refuse to even consider legitimate counter points to your own.  Not even agreeing with, you flat out refuse to acknowledge them as legitimate, despite myself and others giving you that courtesy on points you've raised.  As such, I see no further reason to continue this discussion.  I have better things to do with my time.
