I could use windows if there's no horrible bugs, telemetry, flaky optimizations, shitty I/O, horrible memory management, dreadful number of services, awful boot time because of the trollercoaster of the system files and... wait... And I have to pay for this?

" True greatness is measured by how much freedom you give to others, not by how much you can coerce others to do what you want."
-- Larry Wall

This can be applied in many areas of FOSS, and I can say we don't have true greatness.

It took me some decades to discover that after level 20 comes the "Pro" level (the one you could choose pressing game-select).

I can abstract movies with absurd scripts, but geez, stop using virus as a solution to win a war against an alien army. Why the hell they think it's a good idea?

So that's it. From the linux kernel point of view, this will not be changed and from kernel 5.16, I have two machines that can't boot because the new concurrent positioning ranges (a feature that makes no sens to me). In the last 25 years, this is the first time I can boot a linux, what a joke.
