Even as Linux is gaining traction in a post windows 10 world I still find the occasional really crappy post about linux lining up reasons why its bad yet the person who complains ignores all the flaws windows has.
Granted linux is far from perfect but there are some misconceptions and or utter bullcrap lies about it that really get under my skin.
Firstly there is the whole "Linux is hard!" misconception
Its a common lie that the only way to use linux is all via command line and that you need a manual to understand it.
Granted there are distros that I think are to blame here, Arch Linux, Gentoo, Slackware are the big ones here.
I mean yes Arch gentoo slackware void and many "do it yourself" distros do have their place, your linux from scratches to be sure do deserve a audience dont get me wrong.
Some people like a challenge and hey hats your thing.
But at the same time its a good thing that ubuntu and Linux mint came around, say what you will about them but they are what really started to give rise to the more modern easy to use linux.
Granted that were not the first but the modern age of linux owes a lot to Ubuntu and canonical for taking linux to another stage.
Second one I really hate.... Linux is communism!
I mean for petes sake there is no connection to open source and communism.
Granted yes there is red star linux the greatest computer system ever ever by the great and glorious Kim Jun Un who not only invented the internet but gave us all space coffee!
And yes there is also Ubuntu kylin and Deepin linux, both made by the Chinese
But in all seriousness open source is not communism, marxism or any of that.
Really if thast is all true why does Redhat exist or why are companies like IBM and google invested in it?
Hell Microsoft, yeas the Microsoft is invested in linux right now.
Utter madness but it is true.
Got any ones you utterly hate?
Those are my two big ones.
