They're not the same thing?

It is from a technical point of view.
Marketing is something else entirely.
It's supposed to work well, but YMMV.
Why do you think people want games on Linux? It's because rebooting to Windows is tedious.
Linux is the better desktop and working environment, so it is what you use when you don't play games. Having your desktop be an alt-tab away is convenient to quickly switch between gaming and other things.
Now why isn't the demand for games on Linux higher? Because most people who use Linux are professionals, and they don't spend that much of their time on the computer playing games, so when they need to, suffering the reboot is ok.
I mostly play games on emulators nowadays, and they run fine on Linux.
When you speak of "the Western World", you're actually quite America-centric.
Most of the comments you've said (most obviously the credit card debt thing) don't apply at all in other countries.
I don't understand. What's wrong with sexting? Aren't even young people entitled to send pictures of their naked self to whoever they see fit?
Just teach your kid about etiquette.
This has got nothing to do with his favourite medium of entertainment.
In a lot of countries, it's legal for kids to drink at 16, and most of them drink way before that, getting to experience alcohol and its effects as they grow up.
Compare that to the US, where you need to be 21, and where instead of being exposed to alcohol gradually young people indulge in binge drinking and other forms of excess as soon as they get the right to do so.
I think she's mostly been able to delude herself so well that she know genuinely believes the lies she's telling her clients when she tells them what they want to hear.
I watched your video, but I am still not convinced.
He basically has two arguments: access to information just causes information overload and does not lead to development of a curious and critical self, and that kids with access to so much information changes the authority structure and social interactions so much that former techniques of raising children don't apply.
The second problem is a non-problem, as society changes, the way to raise children must change as well. Relying on the fact that your children are ignorant is not a good approach to enforce your authority anyway.
As to the first problem, it's just not true, as is evidenced in the talk itself. The speaker complains that kids can learn about sex on their own before their parents think they're ready. This is basically admitting they can inquire about things they don't know and make opinions by themselves instead of relying on someone else, which is pretty much the same thing as building their own curious and critical self.
The only real problem with the information age is that you can't so easily indoctrinate your children to your own beliefs anymore, but that's arguably a good thing.
What's wrong with having an affair with a younger woman? It's a fairly common thing and I don't understand what this has got to do with anything.
The only people it matters for are those who are married and may not have agreed to have other sexual relationships outside of their couple.
The only thing that doesn't earn respect here is the thinking that it's okay to censor people because they write crappy software with dubious humour embedded in it.
In normal countries, you can't get fired for no reason.
Facebook exists so that you can build the image of yourself that you want by carefully crafting your profile and the content that you allow on your wall.
It's not just to trick spies or evildoers, but for the rest of society as well.
