"Why are the two APIs for basic file management? Why are you asking ISVs to do double the work?"

Seriously, is he first to ask this? I was thinking the same thing since I am playing with linux server for almost a year.
Ubuntu installation have like 4 different desktops environments. There are probably like a dozen VNC servers. None of them works out of the box. Even if many, many things works out-of-the-box many more itches the hell out of you i.e. dark them in debian causes on some websites to render white letters in white input fields OMG | :OMG:
Some applications uses apt, some snap, some docker, some appimages, some others etc. What is great about FOSS world is IMO its biggest weakness.
No more Mister Nice Guy... >: |
