Lol, vs Linux. Like its a viable alternative or something.  ;D

Linux is so bad that a third of enterprise servers in the world run it. The only reason it has such a small market share with consumers is because 90% of them are too retarded to figure it out.

A lot of people probably use Linux with out even realizing it.
Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

Android is one of the main ones I can think of. It's basically a glorified piece of spyware.

We have an in-house example of Linux in the workplace right here, Thork.

For what? Everything? That would be unusual. We use Red Hat and CentOS for our servers, and Windows master race for mostly everything else.

Everything, yeah. And, surprise surprise, everyone knows how to use it. It's not very complicated. Actually, we do have one computer with Windows 8, but is such a buggy piece of shit that nobody uses it except when they have to. Whether that's due to Windows or the computer itself (probably a mixture of both) I don't know, but the Linux computers run better than just about any equivalent Windows computers I've used. Now that I've personally used a Linux (Unix?) based computer, I think I might switch over once Steam gets more Linux games. It has swayed me.

The main problem with linux is driver support.  Video cards especially have a tendency to have half-assed drivers from the manufacturers and the best they can do from the community.

What kind of work related work gets done on these computers? Also, what distro?

^ Uhh, I dunno specifically. I use it in tandem with the scan guns and keep track of finances, purchases, invoices, spreadsheets, etc. I couldn't tell you what higher-ups do with it. We don't play video games, though, so there's that.

Alright let's see your top five list of RPGs that are better than Morrowind. Oh, you can't think of any? I didn't think so.

Linux is Unix-like, but not Unix-based. It was written from scratch as a clone of Unix, but doesn't share ancestry with Unix.

The main problem with linux is driver support.  Video cards especially have a tendency to have half-assed drivers from the manufacturers and the best they can do from the community.

This is simply wrong, unless by "video cards" you mean "NVIDIA video cards".
when you try to mock anyone while also running the flat earth society. Lol

I said this thread, not this page. The only post in the entire thread that is sort of close to the title is Thork's OP. And even then if you delete the word "government" it just becomes a "new laptop" post.
