Appl maxOS. "eh, buddy, that's fine. Grab yourself an iPhone"
Linux. "Dude, it's GNU+Linux, actually. You need to RTFM before you are allowed in."
@jeena @aral absolutely. This is why we must make the linux experience better and more welcoming for everyone. Right now, only rich people get to have a device that "just works". Linux is a very shitty experience unless you have either a) intimate knowledge about inner worksings of computers or b) some sysadmin-y friend on speed-dial.
@claudius I'm not sure I would say that it's easier to fix MacOS or Windows by yourself if it breaks down. At least if "fixing" means something else than reinstalling the operating system. But probably we have different expectations.
