Linux still has a pitiful game catalog.
Perhaps you haven't checked in for a while. Of the 2,000 most highly rated games on Steam (they all have positive ratings of at least ~85%), 755 are available on Linux.
Not that gaming on Linux doesn't have its problems, but it's getting better every year.
I have been fending off the update
I find myself wondering if Windows 10 is actually that bad.
I'm wondering if it's time to take the leap
You have just proven to Microsoft that their strategy is working. Just keep wearing people down with update notifications.
There are other operating systems, by the way.
I can't wait to see Guns N Roses streamed live 360. Axl has aged really well.
Did you mean: AC/DC
Is this just for the *nix folks?
In crude Windows-speak, Docker is equivalent to just one instance of C:\Windows (the kernel) running on your host computer. On top of that you run multiple lightweight containers each having their own C:\Program Files and C:\Users. So container A and container B run simultaneously, share the same kernel, but can't see each other's apps & data.Right now you would have dozens of Windows services running as 'system' in both your host and your VM. This avoids having two lots of all that stuff.
To answer your question - Linux has always had its kernel separate from the user-space hence container evolution naturally started there. But it appears Windows may be working to catch up.
the Nexus line fails by not including such an essential feature.
With respect, that's just your opinion. I started out in the beginning with the HTC Magic on which I never used the microSD slot, and have since had a Nexus S, Nexus 4 and now a Nexus 5X - never once missing the lack of a microSD slot. I keep all my data in the cloud which is the Google way. I think Google have made the right choices in their design.
A computer without COBOL and Fortran is like a piece of chocolate cake without ketchup and mustard.
