The thing people miss about #desktop #Linux is: it's not that Linux users are using Linux purely for ideology, in most cases. If I could get everything done on Windows in a similar amount of time with a similar level of satisfaction, I probably would.

But I can't. I can't use a tiling WM. I can't use BTRFS or ZFS for my external storage cluster. I can't have a decent package manager or functioning containerization or a command-line driven workflow.

@tindall For me it's half that I like using KDE and half that I expect to have some level of control over my system. Windows 10 is super opaque and controlling and I don't think I could stand to use it for very long
