How Windows is winning Linux on the desktop?

Postby Supreme Ninja » 2017-12-23 20:11

The situation of games on Linux has been much worse. Today there are many emulators, simple games and few commercial games of high quality, but there is still much to be desired in this area. Even if the Linux user searches much, you will not find as many games as there are for Windows, which at this point is unbeatable. If you are a gamer, Linux is unlikely to appeal to you. Unless, of course, you do not use Linux to play and have a video game for fun.

Microsoft Office is the best, most used, most complete and most famous package of office tool in the world!

Much of what you do in MS Office, can be done in LibreOffice. Still, the standard Windows office suite takes advantage of having much more complete tools (though the average user may not make a difference) and is more popular.

Each Linux distribution is a different system, although all are Linux. For the novice user can be a problem the existence of hundreds of different distributions because one instruction is not always suitable for all Linux distributions. When talking about Linux, the beginner has no idea of the existing sea of distros.

Many well known programs such as image and design editors and other commercial software of featured in industry, which are standard on the market, are difficultly to have a version to Linux , forcing qualified professionals not to use Linux or to specialize in less complete software.

Windows supports more hardware than Linux.

Windows users are generally regarded as thieves. Honest people use doors.

What a pathetic attempt at a troll thread... :roll:

Here is why Linux sucks:

Here is why Windows sucks:

For me, Linux sucks less than Windows.

I couldn't care less how many people use Linux, why does that matter?

FYI

this person is a known troll on several forums, especially at LinuxQuestions. His name usually is some iteration of ...ninja. He or it (since we are becoming convinced it is an advanced AI bot) is also active trolling on twitter, and has threatened the Slackware founder/maintainer on twitter and LQ forums.
