Why is Windows so much shit for development?

the insane lengths you need to go to setup a dev environment
theres no way to just automate it unless youre just using docker

macOS is superior than linux in dev environment with a better package manager and more free too.
>>
>>99803737
because there no way to set a library search path
because it's trivial to accidentally nuke a build by putting stuff in your user account folder
because windows arbitrarily uses env and registry for the same purpose with no rhyme or reason
because windows thought a dozen ABI function calling conventions was a good idea
because windows respects unix path spec like /path/to/file.txt but only if it's on the same volume as your current shell
because windows thought using - for program switches was stupid so it used /, but that conflicted with paths so it used \ for that, but that conflicted with standard string escape sequence so...

Almost everyone who uses Linux ran to Gitlab after the github purchase.

Because powershell is just weak bash for soft faggots.

Even if that were true, nobody cares about the "experience" you had at those random, rinky-dink companies. You're just an NPC jumping on that bandwagon to feel smart because you lack real accomplishments of your own.

does mac and linux have CUDA drivers yet? if not then they are nonstarters

also guarantee 99% of those macfags are using a laptop, aka not real development

CUDA works fine on Linux. In fact, it's the only Nvidia GPU thing that works consistently well.

Powershell has its uses but pretending that the syntax isn't super fucking verbose is disingenuous.

This is correct. Why do you seem surprised?

>>99803737
UNIX was made by programmers for programmers (Thompson, Ritchie, Kernighan, etc.).
Windows was made by a soulless corporation so they could charge you to shutdown your computer randomly and force you to use Edge.
>>
>>99803737
99.999999% of it is that their command line is fucky garbage.
Had to use a Mac recently and even though the buttons are all in weird places all the command line stuff was the same.
So Mac <-> Ubuntu is easier.

Wait a min.
Assuming most devs play vidya including web dev and Indian devs; how are they saying their preffered development OS is linux or Mac because this stats should reflect in Steam user's OS distribution. Even by long shot it can't be 5-6% linux gamers. That should be at least 20%.
Are people using virtualized linux box for development?

>>99803737
The only complaint I have is that both Docker and WSL require the DNSClient service running, which sucks because it's so badly written it shits itself when your host file is too big

Other than that I see no issues with development on Windows

I had the opposite experience. After 15 years of only Linux, I had to use Mac and Windows.
Windows was surprisingly better to use as a dev environment, Mac os was unusable garbage - I simply set up ssh and never touched it except to use the closed Mac as a mousepad.

Because Windows was made for boomer office drones that spend their entire life on Excel, on a similar note smartphones were made for braindead normalfags with the only purpose of manipulating their minds and making them consoom.
UNIX is the only widely used OS that was made by programmers for programmers.

you can do that with gtk or qt5 as well then use pkg-config to find the flags to compile
g++ -o main main.cpp `pkg-config --cflags --libs Qt5Widgets`

however qt5 will be a slow piece of shit to compile like that while gtk is still quite fast.
