I would be lying if I said that I didnt draw inspiration from some of the other threads about Win10 and its many quirks. You know what I think of Win10 I just hate to see folks pass on Linux because of the alien nature of it. The fact is that gaming is the only area where Linux doesnt stand toe-to-toe with Windows (and as I already said, I know that can be a dealbreaker). Anyone who will give just about any distro a chance and a little elbow grease (but really didnt it take a little thinking to get Windows running the way you wanted as well ? ) will find it to be well worth the effort. If anything I could spin conspiracy theories about why gameing is centered on the Windows Club, but that is outside of the point here.
That is simply not true. There are a lot of Windows apps that do not have a good Linux equivalent and especially when it comes to having user friendly interfaces. GIMP, for instance compared to Adobe or Correl. And we haven't even talked about niche apps such as found in the scientific and medical worlds.
But it is true that the open source community is too unfocused. Every group is doing their own thing and the development of apps has suffered from this.
