    Phoronix: These Are The Biggest Problems With Linux

    Last week I asked What Are The Biggest Problems With Linux? and since then there have been more than 220 responses and tens of thousands of views regarding the biggest issues with Linux...

    -------

    Someone should do a spoof on the women representing operating systems.

    Linux = the dungeon and dragons playing female mum
    Microsoft = the secretary whore
    Apple = New York trendy designer feminist type

            Now it looks like linux is full of promlems. Hardware is a problem, software is a problem, organisation is a problem, everything is a problem. Why? Problems shood look like:
            x) my scanner Canon 9876 is not supported by driver.
            OR
            x) I can not run proprietary SofwareName X.X because it was compiled with libastral 0.7, and official repository has only 1.2 version.
            OR
            x) I need to run SofwareName 20xx, there are no alternatives for linux and wine also can't run it.
            OR, OR, OR. This is how the real "Biggest Problems With Linux" list looks.

            Why do you extrapolate all the problems to the whole areas of drivers and software?

            And please, dear Phoronix, could you ask next time about what is good in linux? Because every item in your list of problems has at least one user, who has no problems with hardware, software, regressions etc.

              I'm totally locked onto Linux. It's got problems but they are understandable issues, like shenanigans from Microsoft stopping companies supporting Linux, or patents etc.

                True, but there is difference between "Linux has problems" and "Windows sucks". You cannot fix the latter.

                  Dumbest article ever made by a hypocrite. Even sites that are known to be anti Linux aren't so stupid. If you want to be a little better hypocrite then you should post article why other sucks or why Linux rocks. Otherwise you're simply bunch of a hypo without deserve to any respect.

                  Btw. Monolithic kernels are actually the most advanced, used in the most environments, the fastest etc. Only idiot who has no clue would say monolithic kernels sucks. Linux/Unix have monolithic, but modular kernels and Windows and OS X as well (but they advertise them as so called 'hybrid' kernels which is just dumb PR). Oh and only idiot quotes other idiots posts on the main site.

                    I think Phoronix should have asked members to post their current problems.

                    For me;
                    (Hardware)
                    * my Canon scanner has no drivers. A scanner I purchased about 5 years ago. I will, never buy Canon again. Developers struggling with lack of documentation from chip maker
                    * a video usb capture device doesn't work without special drivers. Cheap eBay purchase to backup VHS.
                    * a WinTV video card isn't working, even though there is partial support if I went looking for drivers in the wilderness. Developers struggling with lack of documentation from chip maker

                    (Software)
                    * drivers for my ATI could be better in wine

                    Everything else works near perfect.

                      seems Gentoo Linux solves many of these problems

                        The GREATEST PROBLEM for Linux is closed specs on hardware, and patents.

                          And Ubuntu. There's Gentoo that's nice, fast and hard to use by newbies and there's Ubuntu that's bloated (compared to Linux, because it's much less bloated than winblows or os x) and easy to use by newbies. There's no way to have all in one and that's why this article and quoted comments are just bunch of crap. The only way to have better articles is to turn ad block on, so we'll limit beer consumption which is the cause of stupidity.

                            And it makes others much worse.

                            "- Lack of commercialization and standardization"

                            Yes, it's hard to find two gentoo installs the same unless you are in a university lab or something like that.

                            "- Configuration can be an awful pain. (P; a long, detailed post.) "

                            Not neccesarily and better than gentoo, and quite a bit worse in you insist on complex networking or a custom kernel.

                            Don't get me wrong, Gentoo is my favorite distro, but for most people it creates more problems than it solves.

                              so good it does, I dont want more shity companies who release their propriatary shit to release stuff in linux. Really fuck it, I dont want the newest games in linux if I have to install a steam application for that. The only possitiv point could be that in some day I could use a special computer for gaming and for nothing else and that on this pc then runs a linux instead of a gaming-windows.

                              So now I at least feal Oh I am on a crap system I do nothing but gaming here, if you have then linux there where your games are you could mistakenly give in your passwords and stuff but you installed a trojan like steam and co.

                              So get the fuck out. For opensource developments its just not important you as user just make a generous Makefile or something setup.py distutils in python... maybe upload that to something like pypi, and some very interested people can easily install it that way and test it, but if its good, some people will make packages for your distribution if the distribution is one of the 10 most important ones...

                              So I like it like it is, and its better than its under windows, because updating and stuff sucks and is not automatic at all (except some mostly commercial software that programmed their own apt, wheels reprogramming always sucks).
