The lack of serious help in the community (mostly vague and subtly judgmental as “superior”) and of a “hassle free” app database like synaptic package manager, countless warnings in every application because of missing dependencies and or badly configured apps/system’s configuration files (out of the box), the use of flathub instead of snap, and swupd, some dubious strings(and loads of encrypted files) here and there and viruses into flatpaks, countless painful installations from source and all their errors/warnings because of all that’s missing and different in this OS, backdoors and unsafe kernel options, to repeat, out of the box, all made me change my mind and change distro, once and for all.
Farewell. Looked good, turned bad.
Funny how all it takes for linux to be enjoyable is just a package manager which doesn’t mess the system, a powerful hardware manager and a kernel “modifier/manager” which doesn’t necessarily require a rebuild, possibly all with a GUI.
Instead, we barely get some sort of security/safety option/feature and most applications are a bunch of scripts which barely do what they’re even supposed to do, resulting in countless gigabytes of useless libs and binaries, all for the sake of what could be done by those 3 “magical”, nonexistent applications I have just described.
Same for Microsoft’s Windows…
It almost looks like the political left and right…Divide et Impera for the sake of frustration and artificial chaos among the people.
As if that wasn’t enough, of the huge amount of filesystems out there, we BARELY even get support for the single one we’re using in our setups…All for the joy of Hackers and their “invisible” blobs, who are saying thanks!
Is it really that hard? Oh yeah, it is, for free!
In the end though, even if you pay, it’s the same “old story”.
Coming from one of those who managed to make a working system out of segmentation faults and a “ROOT” modified as any possible name (whoami -anything-), with hardware blobs loaded as mounts, accessible, editable (even the RAM), that’s something…
