oh no
watching the ltt linux gaming challenge video was a mistake

ltt moment 

"when i right click saved an .sh file from github it actually gave me an html file"
yeah because that's how github works. the file entry is a url to another page, and if you try to save a page in a browser it saves as html. what does that have to do with linux

"i thought you didn't need to turn things off and back on in linux to get them to work"
literally what. obs is an app. obs isn't an operating system, nor is it linux

ltt moment 

"wow, the manufacturer for this hardware didn't release their config tool for linux. this is why linux sucks"
Do You Even Hear Yourself

ltt moment 

"i didnt know which discord to choose. there's discord and discord canary, whatever that is"
it's literally just the discord canary app. developed and released by discord. it's also on windows. what does the availability of discord canary in aur have to do with linux being bad or something

ltt moment 

honestly the weirdest one was "i installed an arch-based distro, and when i ran the debian apt-get command, i got errors"

like idk
位 ~ sudo apt-get obs-studio
馃敀 pwd for agatha:
sudo: apt-get: command not found

that seems like Reasonable Output

ltt moment 

oh LMAO

so the part where he didn't get notifications from discord?

that's because he had obs open, and discord automatically enables streamer mode when another streaming app is open so you dont accidentally leak something or whatever

that didnt even have anything to do with linux. its just how discord streamer mode works. it disables notifications

ltt moment 

see actually, linux has its problems, but it's nowhere near as bad as he imagines it, and it won't be as bad for you if you actually intend to use the OS more than "oh no a minor inconvenience, i'm going back to windows"

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress linus is probably the like one person in the universe who could actually like push them to release that

re: ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress i do not know things about the software i use and somehow this is the linux foundation's fault

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress ah yes the problem with linux is actually github (microsoft), OBS, and discord. yeah. that's why linux sucks

re: ltt moment 

@haskal @AgathaSorceress tbh "the problem with linux is actually microsoft" is unironically pretty accurate

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress microsoft paid linus computer noobery to make up obvious bullshit knowing his followers would take it at face value

ltt moment 

@haskal it gets even better when the problem with linux is that
- web browsers behave like they behave on windows
- obs requires a reload to fix a glitch
- you can download discord canary

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress people seem to treat the command line on linux as like, a mandatory thing that you have to use

like
no

if you don't know what you're doing don't open the fucking terminal

open the ubuntu store, search for what u need, and click install. it's not supposed to be difficult

ltt moment 

@haskal yeah agree

and like. the whole video the other guy was like "i just used the graphical package manager and everything was fine" but of course linus really wanted to run a debian command on manjaro

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress @haskal Linus said it's because he was kverthinking it and he "knows just enough to be dangerous", so I take it as admitting it's his fault

re: ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress
位 ~ sudo apt-get obs-studio
:blobcatpats:鈥 headpats for agatha

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress thank you. i've been pretty sympathetic to a lot of the "linux users will just be hateful & disregard everything he says" posts. but this is some real shit i greatly appreciate having indexed & available. high information, pro-social job, well done. like linux users believe in. represent!

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress I think his behavior is reasonable for a 13-year old

unrelated 

@AgathaSorceress my first linux experience was with SuSE 7.1, kernel 2.2 and KDE 2 maybe?? I played with it a few weeks and loved it but wasn't able to get my soft winmodem to work and had to install Windows again to enjoy that sweet 50-kbit internet connection

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress oh gods this is infuriating to read

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress
I definitely agree, I think the perspective of this being a challenge is what's amplifying all these annoyances for him

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress I think you can even install apt with pacman

not that it's a good idea but still 馃槄

ltt moment 

@uint8_t @AgathaSorceress not sure about apt, but dpkg is definitely in pacman

@AgathaSorceress I thought the canary discord is for people who live in a deep coal mine??

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress hi we're linux. we don't believe in proprietary control. we believe in trying to do broadly for ourselves & each other.

and yeah a lot of the others out there don't get it. they don't help. i'm not afraid to say in many cases they don't know how to help themselves, help us. and the good new world could do more to help the confused old commercial world.

but we don't really need them? we're going to reverse & make the better world, with or without them & their support. and we'll do it better.

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress I wonder, will he complain about poor NVidia performance? Will he complain about not being able to watch Netflix?

ltt moment 

@AgathaSorceress he never said it's linux's fault. For all we know from the video, he may as well be blaming the manufacturer for that. And in case of NVidia, I think he ecplicitely blamed them.

Also, if you're just a noob wondering if you should switch to Linux, stuff like "$vendorSoftware doesn't have a Linux version or equivalent" is a pretty serious issue and good to be aware of, rehardless of who is to blame.
