The Linux community sucks at times.

Filed under
Linux

I was converted to Linux my senior year of high school by a classmate. Enticed by the prospects of free software, complete control over my system, and breaking free of the chains of Microsoft Windows Vista, I threw myself headfirst into the Linux experience.

For me, Linux was a positive experience and continues to be today. My system runs beautifully. Not everyone is suited to use Linux; some people are definitely more suited to Windows or Mac. What some fail to understand, however, is that using an OS like Windows doesn’t necessarily imply ignorance, failure, or stupidity.

Sarcasm and snarkiness has never given the Linux community a good name, and comments such as these do nothing but leave bad impressions on those who are considering a switch. I have never understood why Linux users always act as if they have been blessed by some amazing enlightenment, and that those who do not use Linux are aimless sheep wandering in the dark.
