I'm uninstalling Arch as we speak.

Linux is fucking DOA.
The first real test of Linux in the real working world failed.

This is old news and the only reason they did that is, that the people who work there never wanted to adapt and cried and moaned for years, that it's not windows and now they get back windows. no other reason. it wasn't that they couldn't work with it or that it was shit, it was simply, that it wasn't what they always knew and so they hated it.
>>
>>63722336
lack of support is a big, on going issue.

The nice thing about windows is if you have a problem, as a company you can call microsoft and get a resolution.
>>
>>63721662
Did you actually read the article? It says that part of the problem is that some software is unavailable on Linux. That was solved by using Windows on some systems. No problem.

The next problem was getting printers to work, software stability, and exporting documents, etc. These fall squarely on the It teams, which a third party review of the system pointed out as the biggest failure.

The article literally says that IT was the biggest problem. I want you to think about the demographics of those who post on /g/ and what this article means to them. Because it seems to me that the problem is that the real problem is that the average "tech guru" is too retarded to get Linux working properly.

That's fucking pathetic because my 60 year old father switched to Linux two years ago all on his own with zero prior experience and minimal help from myself.

The article seems to suggest that their ineffectiveness mostly stemmed from their inability to coordinate and cooperate. So I suppose I should have said that it was due to how autistic IT folks are.

I really don't think the problem is nepotism. You see the exact same personality types here in North America. They're on this board constantly. They blame the inefficiencies on Chad and Stacy for being fucking retarded. The independent review here suggests that the real problem is the inability of IT teams to work with EACH OTHER. That means the problem has nothing to do with Chad or Stacy and everything to do with the antisocial asshats that you see in IT and their superiority complexes.

Of course it did. They relied on paid support and enterprise programs, and Microsoft has literally every other competitor beat in that one category alone.

The *nix community has basically optimized linux for exactly one thing: scalable servers. That's it. It's really, really good at that, to the point where suggesting things that aren't *nix or a variant will get you laughed at in the industry, but it's not very good at anything else unless tinkering with OS's is your hobby. This isn't news, and the *nix community shouldn't freak out about it or cry and blame corruption when they ran up against some of the most well-known disincentives to *nix adoption there are.

Depending on what Linux distribution you get, you can get this too though. Not all Linux distros are free..
I believe it is openSuse (a German-based Linux distro) that offers support in professional environments.
And definitely Redhat too, but that's more for servers than desktops.

in an alternate reality SuSE and Redhat move their HQ to munich to give free support to the city gov in return for tax reductions.

Linux is honestly torture to use on the desktop. I use it for appliance-type systems and my HTPC and for those it's perfect.

I fell in love with Unix-like operating systems, so now I use a Mac as my main machine and Linux for most everything else. Windows on the gaming rig which I barely touch nowadays.

So the problem in Munich was most likely either
a. Adult people whining that they don't like things that are different than their precious Windows
b. Microsoft paying off the people in charge

There's no real solution for b, but a can be solved by introducing Linux in schools.
My high school used Ubuntu in their internet cafe, and everyone was pretty happy with that. Although it was mostly nerds who went to the internet cafe in the first place... some normies used it too, and they just wanted to watch Game of Thrones and stuff

Since so many people bring the argument that MS moved their German HQ to Munich. It was 17km from Munich before the move. Don't know how much difference that did.
