        Linux users truly are the vegans of the tech world.

          They seriously cannot stop talking about Linux… At this point, It’s endlessly annoying, as it’s on literally every post about any operating system.

            Do you think people never hear about Windows, iOS, Android, etc?

            I think you just get irrationally angry when people bring up something you don’t use. We get it, you use Windows btw.

            I find it kinda staggering you think it’s not appropriate for someone to mention alternative OSes on a submission where people are criticising an OS lol.

            Let’s apply that thinking to another product: Samsung TV does bad thing. Do you think it would be inappropriate or unusual for commenters to mention that other TV brands exist? If not, then why is it different for this other tool?

            I also hate how Windows and MacOS are mentioned on every post about operating systems yet here we are. Why is no-one talking about Temple OS?

            But seriously why doesn’t your rule apply to the other operating systems? Perhaps no-one is promoting Windows because it’s not the OS they chose, it’s the OS they got and it’s their god given right to be miserable and make sure everyone else is.

            How dare I care about my operating system choice and how I use my computer. How dare I recommend it to other people. How dare I try to convince them to give it a go because it might be better for them. As a Linux user I am truly scum, the worst of the worst.

            It’s not like there an infinite number of OSs. Unless you have a Mac the choice is basically Windows or Linux.
            It’s absolutely logical that any operating system post will have comments pushing Linux.

            I hope that one day someone makes another better OS, because Linux is annoying as well. But until then you’ll have to suffer these comments.

          In both cases, I’ve encountered a lot more people complaining about them than I have obnoxious Linux users or vegans

          We constantly hear about all the bad shit MS is doing, then somebody points out an alternative, and then people like you get pissed off about it. “NO. I don’t want to hear about the alternatives! I’ll stick to Microsoft, they’ll stop their antics some day, I can fix her them ❤️”

          Maybe if people don’t want to hear about OS alternatives, they should stop complaining about the one they have?

          I don’t understand the anger that springs up when people say “this isn’t an issue on Linux”. If your washing machine kept leaking water all over your floor, and someone said “hey have you considered getting a different one?” it’d be insane to get angry at them for that, yet it happens all the time with OSes. It’s just a tool. You don’t owe allegiance to an OS.

            That analogy about the washing machine doesn’t quite work.

            I cannot run applications that I rely on for my business on Linux. It is not even an option even if I wanted to.

            The hassle of switching operating systems isnt problem, It’s the lack of compatibility.

              Then don’t use Linux for that use case? Nobody is telling you to. I’m not trying to convert you.

              I’m saying that people need to stop getting so upset when someone recommends tool B for job X when people complain about the issues with tool A.

              If the people that use tool A are tired of hearing about how tool B doesn’t have the issues they’re facing with tool A, then maybe those people should stop publicly talking about those issues.

          Vegans care about the well-being of other creatures, so that’s actually a kind comparison.

          Too kind for me. There would be more software made for me if others stopped letting proprietary software take advantage of them.

        You must’ve kept the button pressed too long. Oh well.
