        What limitations? Linux-based operating systems are generally much more versatile than either windows or mac, which are gimped beyond belief so that 90iq apes can't hurt themselves using them.

        The world already runs on linux, who cares about what the proles use as a bootloader for chromium (the actual operating system as far as the average person is concerned)

        Running huge swaths of Windows only software. I'm primarily a Linux user (mostly Manjaro these days) and even I know it's just fucking intentionally obtuse to act like its not limiting to most people because of compatibility. For most people it's just one or two programs that won't work right in WINE, but that means rebooting to another partition potentially multiple times a day just to use that software if they wanted to dual boot.

          has a point in that most people live in a web browser these days anyway. I switched both my Parents over to Linux after they balked at Windows 10 and Microsoft's hard-sell campaign for it back in 2015, neither of them misses the Windows-only applications everyone loves to cite. (Office, Photoshop, yadda yadda)

          what's the arduino of cartridges?

          BB gun. Small, cheap, the very opposite of powerful, but if you're doing a small job like knocking over some empty cans on your back porch then it's fine.

            I've done the same for my parents. But, right now, Linux really only works well for the extremities. The very casual users don't use anything that cares about platform at all. The very advanced users can get what they want running one way or another. But people in the middle who have non-casual uses for the computer really feel the limitations of Linux software availability. The gap is closing with more commonly used software moving to cloud based and gaming compatibility layers getting nearly native performance in many cares, but a lot of users will still encounter problems they're not equipped to solve.

          What huge swaths? You can run pretty much all windows software through compatibility layers like WINE and now Steam Proton. And in most cases end user software has alternatives that work perfectly fine so this issue is overblown.

          Besides, "x-only software" is a retarded argument if you are a windowsfag. There is orders of magnitude more that only runs on linux because developing and distributing software is much easier on linux. I work in robotics/machine learning research and using linux is not a choice, it's the standard.

            This frequently requires making tweaks to each individual program. There's an entire Arch wiki article on tweaks to get games working I've personally had to use numerous times https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Steam/Game-specific_troubleshooting. It's not nearly as bad as it was 10, 5, even 2 years ago, but trying to run any assortment of Windows only software would be a fucking nightmare if you didn't understand basic shit like using the terminal. And even then, certain popular games with anti-cheat systems are just total no-gos.
            It's disingenuous to act like this shit is within the capabilities of the average user. Linux, right now, only works for people who don't do much with computers and people who know what the fuck they're doing with computers. That gap is closing, but its not closed.
            And, as a Linuxfag who still thinks most people are not capable of using only Linux daily, windows-only software is a fucking great argument because of WHAT software is Windows only and what software is Linux only. a random person is a fuck of a lot more likely to want to use some industry-specific piece of business software nobody has invested time to get running smoothly on WINE or play a AAA game with anti-cheat that can't run on WINE on purpose than fuck around with machine learning.

              Kernel-level spyware not working is probably a feature to a large slice of the Linux userbase.
              Frankly, if modern computing is supposed to be secure, user-installed applications should have vastly less access to the system they run on, not more.
              The way applications work on most desktop operating systems is like giving the mail guy keys to your house so he can walk in any time and drop the mail on your table. You'll just have to trust the guy to not do anything unexpected.

      Gentoo would be a p80, you build it to whatever spec you want, with whatever parts you want. It can work very well, be a bolt action pistol, or blow up in your face. It all depends how well you read the wiki.

    Wildcats in general are the Arch of cartridges, OP. 6.5 Creedmoor really isn't a wildcat anymore, neither is 6.5 Grendel, with both now seeing military service.
    They're more like the RHEL/CentOS of cartridges in that way.

      >pretending linux is secure
      Never implied that it is. If anything, many distros are probably more lax with security than properly configured Windows or OS X at this point.
      There are some efforts to sandbox Linux desktop applications better, but they have pretty severe issues with performance and missing functionality. The legacy solutions for various things like drag & drop, screen capture, etc. only work because every desktop application has way too much access to things. Hell, it wasn't that long ago when you could sometimes write input into applications straight through the lock screen if your input device was weird enough. The legacy X stack was a bunch of dirty hacks that no amount of code could fully control.
      The only reason why Linux desktops are acceptable in enterprise at all is the fact that most applications are sandboxed by the web browser.
