The year of the Linux desktop

>The year of the Linux desktop

;0)

I have been playing with a Raspberry Pi I bought my son. I am quite surprised by how user unfriendly it is. You have to type in several lines of Linux gobbledigook (which I had to Google for) just to mount a USB memory stick.

Also the year nuclear fusion will be only 29 years away, perhaps?

"I am quite surprised by how user unfriendly it is."

Apple is user friendly and charges a premium.

User unfriendly is literally $4 for a complete working supercomputer and we can count the number of users on one hand.

Yet eggheads continue to dance shout and blog about their latest technical hack or bizarre addition to C++'14.

The intellectual masturbation over C++ is hitting peak levels these days.

For some reason the geeky convo following  a simple happy new year has made me giggle :)

You know what apocalypse and desktop linux have in common?
Both are foreseen by people every year, yet they never happen.

I predict the first commercial fusion reactor will be run by desktop linux using software created using a graphical programming language that doesn't require programmers.

On the other hand it looks like VR might finally hit the mainstream sometime soon.

I'm really excited about VR and gesture recognition.

"desktop linux"

My Linux machine is the only one that has up to  date drivers for my hardware. Windows and Mac haven't fallen behind, they've simply dropped support altogether.

Linux has become the solution. Get used to it.
