10 Reasons Why Desktop Linux Isn't Mainstream - For The Record

10 Reasons Why Desktop Linux Isn't Mainstream. Yeah, the title is totally link-bait. However, it's worth noting that I actually deliver what the title describes and then some. Linux is awesome, but sadly, most people haven't heard of it. Here's why. +Support the Show - https://www.patreon.com/freedompenguin 1) Brick and Mortar availability (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/ubuntu-linux-linux/8888563.p?skuId=8888563) (https://www.computerworld.com/article/2534618/operating-systems/best-buy-stores-to-sell-boxed-version-of-ubuntu-linux.html) 2) Legacy software expectation (MS Office, Autocad, Adobe, industry specific app here) 3) Gaming (PC gaming) 4) Local support ecosystem (who is my tech person) 5) Industry labeling for hardware compatibility (Best with ____ OS) 6) Wild card hardware issues - (audio, video, networking) 7) User experience familiarity (Weird UI, searching for software isn't recommended) 8) No one company to yell at when something goes wrong. 9) Too much choice in desktops, distros and other elements of the desktop. 10) Old, dated belief systems about Linux.

If you had $100 Million to improve just ONE piece of Linux software... what would it be?

2018: The Year of Creepy Tech

2018 is shaping up to be the creepiest year in technology history. Sure, we've had mass surveillance for years. Facial recognition and cell phones -- also highly creepy. But two companies -- Amazon and Google -- have really turned the creepy factor up to 11. With such things as Amazon controlled door locks to Google talking to other humans for you (and teaching your children to treat Artificial Intelligence nicely)... well... 2018 is definitely winning the creepy tech contest. == This episode sponsored by == Purism: https://puri.sm/ Pogo Linux: http://www.pogolinux.com/ LulzBot 3D Printers: https://www.lulzbot.com/
