Why I love Linux and why it will never be popular or mainstream

RSS Kategorie Pfeil Linux Tipps vom | Quelle: reddit.com Direktlink öffnen

You build your own system from the ground up. There's so many options, a lot of distros hold your hand and create an easy user experience like Windows or Mac OS (Ubuntu, Mint, Elementary, Debian), and then other distros are very time-consuming, but ensure a much more secure and stable system (Gentoo, Void, Arch, Slackware, OpenBSD). But the best part is, because of the free and open source software, you can control every inch of your own system and adjust it to your heart's content. You can have a shell script for every single task that can be automated, and eventually your daily workflow becomes easier and smoother. I'm not crazy about systemd, so I chose a distro that leaves it out on purpose with Devuan. I love compiling my own programs and kernel and experimenting with build systems, so right now I'm happy with Void Linux and its XBPS.

If someone makes a piece of software you really like, like a window manager, terminal, web browser, music player, video player - you can improve on that software yourself and re-compile it yourself, until it solves your problems and you're happy with the result. Sure, you can make a pull request on GitHub and everything, and if you're lucky the maintainers will like it and you'll contribute to open source, but there's absolutely nothing stopping you from just running your own modified version of whatever software you like.

Me, I run a minimal, stripped-down system. Herbstluftwm or Bspwm, Polybar, Dmenu, Ncmpcpp + Mpd, and the suckless simple terminal are really all I need. Transmission-remote-cli for extra fun. I like the idea of DWM even though I don't use it. I love putting unicode icons in my Polybar and in my terminal, I love Vim status lines, I love Z Shell, I love icons in Ranger. Sure, it takes a while for a new or inexperienced user to re-learn all the key bindings for a certain program, but once they do, it's worth it.

I'm not really trying to say anything. I think it's kind of self-defeating and futile to expect the Linux world, which is very niche and time-consuming and hard on new users, to be a bigger, mainstream, commercial thing like Windows. It's fun like this.
