Mass containerization and alternate runtimes cannot possibly be the future of desktop apps on Linux. If this is really the direction it’s going, the future will be so shitty that we’ll all end up back on macOS or Windows.
This posts features great complaints but really shitty reasoning. Very immature perspective on things.
If you are so upset about it, name the perfect alternative, contribute to one, or go make one. This post barely approaches solutions and spends all of it’s time whining about the outcome of technology choices without even touching on what they would change.
I wish I liked KDE. I even tried playing around with LXQT.
Currently I’m on Elementary OS just because of the simplicity and polish. Even though it’s based on GTK. I’d like if someone created a gnome-like UI based on QT. One that was designed to be both polished and accessible.
I might try and make it myself, can’t be hard, right? :-D
I don’t know. Nice v Mean are subjective. I suggest you be honest. When you approach someone with complete honesty, if they are being disingenuous, eventually they will reveal themselves.
Once someone has revealed themselves you go ahead and treat them that way until they change. There is no simple answer to this question. It’s not cut and dry as “if a person does x then y.”
But I don’t personally surround myself or waste my time helping people who I think are bad people or, at least, too confused for me to help. But a criticism against me might be that I don’t spend enough time helping people. It’s a personal decision.
If you click on the download and then reject it, a new link appears to open in web version. I am strongly considering figuring out how that works and creating a FF extension to generate those web links automatically.
I know my Linux environment is pretty sandboxed, but I’d rather go back to Windows than install Zoom software on any of my devices.
