    I'm not convinced that there was anything to get. To some, a nonsequitur is the height of wit. (Not for me.)

    I'm nominally a highly educated American, although I'm moving on to "elder" (geezer) status these days.

    I didn't get it either. So far I've been a successful student at SHK, now 80 and still learning.

    I agree though for servers / running VM's etc Linux doesn't need a GUI - everything can be managed via the CLI with help with things like VI etc for editing .

    re: Linux

    There's a tech column in the UK Guardian 'Ask Jack', where the running gag is that whatever the problem - from sticky mouse to psu catching fire - some fanboy's solution is always to get Linux. Occasionally the Linux thing is tongue-in-cheek, but is usually serious. In fact there's a competition of sorts to be the first that week to suggest it.

    Switching OS to fix a minor problem is a bit like quitting your job, divorcing your wife, selling your house and going to live in Australia - because your TV is on the blink.

    There's also a similar 'get a Mac' thing, but it's mainly Linux.

    If only all the different factions of the Linux coding community could get together and focus all their efforts into one OS instead of all these different versions at various stages of development.
    It is nice to have choice but sometimes too much choice is detrimental.
    I can see the appeal of Linux for niche use cases and I don't doubt that for server use it is hands down better than any thing Windows can offer, but even though it tends to run leaner and quicker than other OS's (just read about Clean Linux from Intel, Intel Clear Linux outperforms Windows 10 and Ubuntu… on cheap AMD hardware | TechRadar), because of all the variants and the way they all tend to deal with updates and software/ driver installs differently and there seems to be no coherent face offered to everyday PC users I can't see it becoming mainstream any time soon.
    Even with Steam supporting Linux gaming it can be very hit and miss if your distro lacks certain necessary features, and good luck sorting the issues out if it hardware related with no native support. Most home users cannot write and compile their own drivers.
    I really like Linux, have tried various distros and found them to be cleaner and leaner than Windows but can't see myself using it as my daily driver, not yet anyway.
    All just my humble opinion.

    I remember reading somewhere Microsoft implementing a Linux platform in Win10 - I cannot remember exactly the details.

    Win10 is pretty good, but, a lean Linux definitely doesn't have a pie problem and runs faster on the same rig.

    But that can be an advantage with Open Source software, gives a number of folks the ability to show what they can do without needing a large production company/expense.

    Hi folks

    These days you can run multiple OS'es --use Virtual machines if need be --Virtual Machine software runs very well on modern hardware -- nothing wrong with using "more than 1 tool" for a job -- you wouldn't presumably cook in a kitchen using only 1 utensil or fix a car with only one tool (actually you *could* fix a car with only 1 tool --called "The Mechanic" !!).

    Cheers

    One tool is probably not enough, (old ford cars needed a screwdriver and around 5 spanners for everything), I use virtualisation for running client operating systems for testing, (and where possible set up the VM to match the client system), but have never needed another OS to actually do work, all the software I need is available on Windows, and in my case applications are the originals that are replaced by pale imitations available on other OS's

    Of course YMMV
