-TechrightsBN/ | Why isn’t the Linux Desktop more popular? | MindsDec 13 00:06
schestowitzHow many times does the commentator use the term "Linux" to describe an entire operating system?Dec 13 00:06
schestowitz"Linux" is not an operating system but is the kernel for GNU / Linux based operating systems.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzI also noticed quite a few minor issues with this video (such as his on-screen annotation containing a misspelling of the word "accessible") and am wondering if he fully reviews his content before publishing.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzAnyway, he made a number of interesting points, most of which I agree with.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:06
schestowitz"i think he uses term linux intentionally. more wannabe "gadget people" will digest what hes saying easier. will be more compelled to watch."Dec 13 00:06
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzI feel as I'm hearing some stuff that just isn't true.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzFirstly, I don't think the gentleman is aware of, or has perhaps never used the KDE Plasma desktop environment and KDE connect I mean you can easily browse, share, and sync files without a hard connection. And honestly, I can't think of very many distros that don't support Plasma and the KDE framework.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzAnother example is all this talk about the difficulty in installing a distro to disk. I mean really? You can simply burn the ISO to DVD by right-clicking on Windows, booting from the DVD, letting Linux use the entire drive for the install. Isn't this the same way people load Windows on their PCs too?Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzWhat I did not hear was probably the biggest reason more folks don't use Linux, is that they are simply afraid to use something unfamiliar to them.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzI mean how many times did the OP use the word 'fear' or 'scared' in this presentation.Dec 13 00:06
schestowitzI mean imagine a user thinking to migrate to a Linux desktop. If they were not scared before they watched it, they sure as hell would be by the time they did finish watching it.Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz'Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzLet me just say I realize the purpose here was not to bring people to Linux, but to explain why the Linux Market share is so low.Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzWith all due respect, I would add this video into that equation.Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz     Verified Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzI just rewatched this video twice and have a couple more thoughts.Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzFirstly, the commentator talks about a single marketing campaign. While I admit that marketing campaigns are good and necessary for the purpose of increasing the market share of Linux (and BSD) kernel based operating systems, there is something that the commentator is either forgetting or is ignoring. That thing being the idea that the free market principle is good.Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzAt the end of the day, choice is good, competition is good, free market ideology is good.Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzThe free market isn't just good as a superficial idea (after all, how many distributions are available which only real promotes the idea of having differences within the way that they look? ie. having a stock Ubuntu base with the only real difference being related to having a different out-of-the-box colour scheme or a few extra tweaks provided) but also aids in providing innovation and promoting distributions that may be used for Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzspecific tasks (ie. distributions which are aimed directly at the retail "triple A"  games and entertainment demographic or distributions that are aimed for use within the corporate, end-user workstation market).Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz"Secondly, the commentator also discusses the idea of a single branding message and brings up the idea of that the "Tux the penguin" mascot is considered as being "cartoony". However, he seems to ignore the fact that as far as the majority of users are concerned, most (if not all) distributions are recognised by their own logo brands (may that be the round logos which Canonical uses to promote their range of Ubuntu based Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzdistributions, the gecko logo which is used to promote SuSE or the red fedora hat which Red Hat uses). For the most part, the "Tux the penguin" is not seen or recognised by the average user."Dec 13 00:07
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzThirdly, most average users (especially when ignoring the "triple A" game demographic) do not really care about which operating system they are using to perform their required tasks. As long as they can use their device to perform a task then as far as they are concerned (to use an old cliché), the operating system "just works".Dec 13 00:07
schestowitzAs long as the user can use the operating system as they require and with out putting in too much thought into the process, as well as being able to upgrade the applications / operating system easily, then why should the average user care which operating system they are actually using?Dec 13 00:08
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:08
schestowitz"Dec 13 00:08
schestowitzFourthly (and possibly a bit of a controversial point), with the re-emergence and continuing growth of ARM architecture market, it can be argued that the x86 architecture market (ie. the "IBM compatible" market) is loosing traction and slowly loosing market share. Dec 13 00:08
schestowitzI am old enough to remember that between approximately 1985 and 1994, the ARM (Motorola 6800x0) market was more popular when compared to the x86 market as far the average domestic consumer was concerned.Dec 13 00:08
schestowitzWith the ongoing increase popularity of the modern ARM architecture market, we are seeing a growth in the sales of ARM based mobile devices and single board computers (especially with recent hardware innovations within the "Pi" market). Dec 13 00:08
schestowitzWhen considering the cost and the intellectual property issues surrounding the x86 architecture, as well the relativity slow (arguably, poor) activities of Microsoft within the domestic consumer based ARM market and the recent reversal of Apple to increase  their own activities within the ARM architecture market, and decreasing (dropping?) their (Apple's) activities within the x86 architecture market, there is a continuous growth Dec 13 00:08
schestowitzwithin the ARM architecture based market.Dec 13 00:08
schestowitzThis growth is also aiding the increased interest within the Linux (and possibly the BSD) kernel based open source operating system market as well (especially within the context of the end-user / consumer demographic market).Dec 13 00:08

schestowitz- According to Imran Ahmed, chief executive of the Centre for Countering Digital Hate, anti-vaxxers are “an extremist group that pose a national security risk,” because “once someone has been exposed to one type of conspiracy it’s easy to lead them down a path where they embrace more radical world views that can lead to violent extremism”Dec 13 00:25

schestowitzDear Mr Gillespie,Dec 13 16:31
schestowitzIf it was really a worry for CIPA to attempt avoiding problems relating to “visa and/or work permit arrangements for travelling from the UK to the Schengen Area”, it could have said so.Dec 13 16:31
schestowitzIf there would have been a worry of this kind, this worry is whatsoever not justified. Just have a look at Art 134, especially Art 134(6 and 8). According to Art 134(6) members of the epi are even entitled to establish a place of business in any Contracting State in which proceedings established by this Convention may be conducted! That is in The Netherlands and in Germany. I know of one London firm of patent attorneys which Dec 13 16:31
schestowitzestablished a branch in Munich as early as in 1980!Dec 13 16:31
schestowitzQualified representatives from non-EU contracting states are or have been regularly present at OP in person before the pandemic, and I have never heard that travel restrictions were imposed upon them. The possible necessity of obtaining a visa cannot justify that OP in form of ViCo have to become mandatory.Dec 13 16:31
schestowitzI therefore have to maintain that the reasons brought forward by CIPA have more to do with business reasons than with possible travel restrictions!Dec 13 16:31
