Lol, angry gnussolini nerd. And the rest of the world with brains keeps not caring and happily uses Unity and Gnome-shell.
The rest of the world uses Windows and OS X on the desktop, Android and iOS on mobile and couldn't care less about Unity and Gnome-shell. Even Windows Vista got Linux beat on StatCounter. You can use the classic desktop paradigm that ~78% use (Win7 + WinXP + OS X + Vista), join the new touch paradigm with ~19% (Win8 + Win8.1) or you can go your own way. My impression is that they're trying to design a car driven by joystick because some UX designer thought it was better, what's tested and works is too boring.
How about winning over some existing, established markets before trying to chase the latest fad? And even if it's not a fad, open source never moves fast enough to be first because there's no overall leader. Sure you could slap Linux on a tablet like Microsoft did with Windows many years before Apple, but it won't work well until all the application developers feel having a touch UI is an itch they need to scratch. Sure we can have visionaries, but Jobs was a visionary with an army of developers to turn them into reality. A Linux visionary is a man with a powerpoint slide. Or actually a LibreOffice Impress slide, I guess.
For example, in Roe v Wade, Roe "won" at the Supreme Court, but lost the case because the delays in being granted the right to have an abortion took so long the baby was born before any retrial could have occurred (I don't know the timing, for all I know, Roe gave birth before the Supreme Court decision that would have allowed an abortion). But the individual case, and the points of law are not related, other than the one case to trigger the appeal is obviously in the set of cases affected.
Seriously, I restart my samsung a few times a day just to prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
If you can prevent problems, then you don't have problems. Stop complaining.
Yeah, buddy! And when they bend you over, don't ask for lube, just take it dry, like a man!
Give it another 2-5 decades and that quality-level may be reached. At this time, the smartphone software makers are just making all the mistakes that have been made on desktops.
A decade ago phones were stable. Now they aren't. How does it follow that by giving more decades things will improve?
Superior technology = market share? That must explain why 90% of people use MS windows and 2% use Linux. Of course.
90% of people are not "using" an OS at all, and so Microsoft fits the bill perfectly. Linux is not really a great desktop OS, so most "users" don't use it. Many of those that do use Linux on the desktop are just neckbeards patting themselves on the back for being able to do the automated install of linux and the GUI (and probably Wine as well) and couldn't even figure out how to open a shell, let alone use it. As far as I am concerned Linux is the Microsoft of Unixes.
Microsoft also happens to make a much better server OS than their desktop offering. It is good enough that many people overlook the fact that Linux is free and will actually pay for a Microsoft Server OS.
My desktop computer's the same way though. Every 2-3 weeks it just needs a reboot to clean house.
My desktop computer doesn't need to be rebooted every 2-3 weeks, and no I don't run linux. Its probably your applications and not your OS that needs the reboot.
24kWh/day = 24kWh/24h = 1kW. Which is a completely ridiculous amount of electricity.
How is that a ridiculous amount of electricity? That is about the amount of electricity a 1.5HP motor uses. That is about 1/24th of he amount of electricity required to charge a Nissan Leaf battery. You people love to chastise people for driving gas guzzlers, and then when people change to electric cars, you chastise them for using too much electricity. At least if we go back to driving gas guzzlers our electric usage will go down.
