Oh and if you do manage to get it installed, you are left to search for drivers and utilities and to edit conf files for even the most basic functions like say multi-monitor support whereas with windows this is maybe 3 mouse clicks away.

YMMV In my experience is on windows which I have to hunt down for drivers, reboot after installing each one, install all the necessary programmes. On Fedora I only have to install the Nvidia driver which is 3 clicks away @ RPMFusion. If I try to play an mp3 the system prompts me to install the appropiate codecs, which takes 2 more clicks.

From that site

To paraphrase Eric S. Raymond on the issue, we see systemd being very prone to mission creep and bloat and likely to turn into a nasty hairball over the longer term.

This is not a beard contest, rest assured the furry ones among us are not sheeps.

Then there is the "systemd fork" called uselessd with some good points and lots of lulz.

I'm starting to think that all these guys are just a bunch of teenagers with nothing else to do.

Git uses poor naming, is poorly documented, and is, in my opinion, an example of the worst of the lack of social sophistication in programmers.

Luckily your opinion is something I wouldn't even use to wipe my arse with.

A program is not finished until the user interface and documentation make using the program as easy as possible

An open source program is not finished until it somewhat runs, it's source is published, and people find it useful. Don't like it? don't use it or write something better, if you can't, just go cry into a corner.

After the initial gnome 3 fiasco I moved to kde now I run mate, but I think that gnome 3 is quite acceptable. The problem with KDE is that sometimes it's too distracting, and on other aspects is slow ( at least on my machine the file manager takes a while to load, meanwhile nautilus/caja loads instantly). Some of the functions of the programs offered by KDE don't actually work as intended ( at least in my experience). Some small things are annoying, for example when using the treeview in Kate, sometimes it has happened that I accidentally dragged a folder instead of clicking on it, and the editor loaded all the files inside, crashing in the process. Kate also has refused to open some files in write mode since it considers them to be too large, gEdit/Geany just open it and let me work. I like a lot of KDE stuff, however I find it kind of counterproductive to use, and slow/sluggish, specially the file manager.

Now your long post didn't address any single problem with the UNIX philosophy. Apple clearly showed that integration for desktop users is not impossible with UNIX, and UNIX philosophy is not even against a user exposed integrated interface. Refactor your whining and now start complaining how they are turning your linux into Mac OSuXXorz...

"The biggest thing any program can do is not the technical details of the program itself; it’s how useful the program is to users. So any time any program (like the kernel or any other project), breaks the user experience, to me, that’s the absolute worst failure that a software project can make." (Linus Torvalds)

Yeah right because the kernel doesn't break its ABI/API on each release...

If they reached feature parity with the old Gnome 2/Mate . This is:
  • Being able to change my themes without a 3rd party app at least as decent as the ones on MATE or Cinnamon.
  • Desktop notifications not acting funky (Skype for example, spamming notifications, or closing itself when using the skype extension)
  • Bring back nautilus statusbar... some people like to know how much space we have left when browsing files without clicking on properties, it was useful. I don't even know why they dumbed down one of the best file managers out there, nautilus was fast, and feature rich.
  • Whatever you're doing with gEdit, please stop. Yeah we know that fancy NodeJS devs love these new Textmate clones that keep spawning everywhere, but people who actually work with a text editor need something powerful and flexible which doesn't mutate into another beast on every release. Also what's up with these new comic-like dialogs that get unusable if you aren't using the default ( horribbly padded) theme? get your CSS shit together
  • Being able to drag and drop windows between desktops without switching to activities
  • Usable menu entry editor

Outside of that I kinda like the new "workflow" of Gnome, but knowing that your favourite feature might be dropped on the next release doesn't look really good.

Stopped reading at "is a man", since several women identify their act as "drag queen".

Shit that doesn't actually has anything to do with the point I was trying to make. But it's 2014 so you can always apply to get offended in order based a semantic difference to win a discussion online. Go write it on your tumblr.

I'm not going to support people who want to give them more shit than they already have to deal with.

The thing is that they don't have, they are not transgenders, they apply for a service that has a certain rule ( which I don't like either), they get a free pass because they are doing something "LGBT-ishy" and Facebook doesn't want trouble.

Drag queen is not the same as transgenderism:

A drag queen is a man who dresses, and often acts, with exaggerated femininity. There are many different possible purposes to drag, personal reasons for doing drag will differ for individual drag queens. It is often done for the purpose of self-expression, performing and entertaining, and can also be mainly important as a creative outlet, a means of self-exploration or a way to make cultural statements. (wikipedia)

Just as it's inherent to transgender people that their sex organs do not reflect their psychological gender

Nope, these are just guys who likes to dress as women, they are not transgendered people they are just good ol' part-time pervs.
