    Of course I didn't. I'm at work during the day (no youtube), and having social life at evening/night (no time to watch videos unless it's really short).

    Furthermore, it's reasonable custom for the one bringing up some opinion to be the one backing it up with arguments instead of delegating the work.
    If that topic is that annoying for you, and you consider this video worthy as a source, surely you would have most arguments and numbers in mind?

    You push a very personal opinion like it's truth, without even the beginning of a proper argumentation or comparison.
    And then you speak about reality?

    That we tolerate trollesque behaviour does not mean we encourage them.
    And this comment mate, is 100% troll behaviour.
    Either bring actual source on recent hardware and software proving that the difference is significant over various laptops and distributions, or just don't comment. Thanks.

    As for the Macbook battery life, it is indeed impressive (although that time is with *very* light activity) and certainly nice for hard-core people who are unorganized enough to spend more than 12 hours away from a plug (I was gonna give some credit for the "unconnected traveler" use-case, but when traveling in rough environments you'd rather pick a rugged & waterproof hardware rather than a luxury piece).
    But considering it's the same people that design software and hardware and have overall a handful configurations to support at best, it's actually a normal expectation to target for both them and consumer. Especially since you get locked in hard as an "accessory".

    Just FIY, unless you go for powergamer laptop it's easy enough to get 7+ hours of battery with constant use of wifi network and mid-range brightness on any recent workstation. Under Linux at least. And the best can pump over 10 hours.

    If you're making CPU/GPU intensive use most of the time while unplugged then yes, "random laptop" probably won't be enough for you. For most users though the average workload is compatible with 6/7+ hours of battery, which is largely sufficient for them.

    Watch this video and realize how many people just want bugfixes in KDE Plasma 6. This is a never ending topic in KDE.

    Please, just admit you're a troll and be done with it. Not that big of deal after all, Michael is pretty lenient with those behaviours (whether that is ultimately good or bad I have no opinion, it's usually not that annoying just skipping comments).

    Passive cooled, long battery life, good performance, good trackpad, good display, good sound etc. Where can I buy this? Please show me!

    I do something similar. Note: I use Kubuntu, so the "Enable File Search" checkbox of KDE Plasma comes disabled by default, that improves the speed of e.g. KRunner. Nille_kungen .

    Given a choice between macOS and Windows, I'd still take Windows. That feeling of assurance that any random hardware bought off-the-shelf will definitely have Windows drivers, and that software applications written during the days of Windows 2000 or Windows XP will still continue to run in Windows 11 unmodified is a huge deal. Try running a GTK1 application in a modern distribution today in 2023 and see how much pain it entails.

    And also because for some strange reason, Chinese developers still seem to be slavishly developing their software and development for Windows as a tier-1 platform, macOS as a tier-2 platform and Linux as a tier-bottom-of-the-bottom platform even though they are fully aware that the US has weaponised software against them. Damn, HarmonyOS's developer environment and SDK is almost entirely Windows-exclusive. What the hell, Huawei?
    It will run just as easy on Linux as on Windows. Static linked no problems, dynamically linked with libraries included no problem. Dynamically linked to depend on standard libraries 20 years ago = pain

    If you feel only negative vibrations by my comments, this is your problem. I didn't offend anyone, although you could feel offended by my Linux desktop experience I made in 11 years. But as I said: It's your problem. Don't project your problems on me.

    I still use Linux at work for developing tasks, but it clearly fails for me in respect to desktop experience.

    But maybe next year Linux will conquer the desktop. I gave up after 11 years (!) of Linux.
    I went from macOS to Windows and from there to Linux.
    Reasons:
    MacOS is already an overpriced and closed system. It will continue to close and lock in the user.
    With Linux you have full control over the system, with MacOS and Windows the OS has control over the user, thus the companies and the US.
    Try modding, flashing, hacking or cracking... with MacOS can be totally forgotten as well as data protection.
    There is nothing better than Linux on the desktop and LineageOS (without google services) on the smartphone, as far as privacy is concerned.

    This is my personal opinion based on my priorities.

    KDE Plasma is currently my favorite under Arch/Manjaro/EndeavourOS
