    I actually like Linux, but I’m considering just blocking all the Linux communities because it’s so incredibly boring to just see you guys circle jerking all day long. We get it. We all get it.

        I came here hoping to see gnome and X11 memes. You know, actual Linux memes.

        Instead I found “Windows bad” circlejerking.

        No, I’m on All, but a far higher percentage than most other content is just the same message in slightly different words on repeat, “Linux good, Binbows bad.”

        It’s kind of hard to tell since the Linux memes are in all the other communities as well.

        They could use some memes making fun of our community instead of making fun of the rest.

        Let’s be honest, Linux isn’t a viable option for a big portion of society. I love working in Linux but it’s not perfect for those that aren’t techsavy and need more than a browser.

          Linux Mint is absolutely usable by most of the population. What it isn’t good at is business sector stuff because that entire sector is captured by Microsoft and its proprietary ecosystem. If interoperability was the focus, it wouldn’t be an issue. But capturing the population is the goal, so companies get these anti-user designs that lock you into their ecosystems. Maybe you need centralized development to achieve stuff like Azure and all its capabilities.

      I mean just go ahead and block it, why make this rant at all, if you are seeing it on All its because of the amount of Linux users on Lemmy.

        I mean, I’ve got a 75% upvote ratio right now, so perhaps I’m not alone in thinking it’s a bit excessive?

          And whats the point? Should all Linux memes communities close so that you don’t see them in All? Should people stop making Linux memes at all? What are you achieving with your rant? You don’t like it. We get it. You and that 75% can block the community and move on.

              Ah yes, this is literally the first time I visit Lemmy today after uni and the first post I see on All and that I interact with in more than a week but I am the one that has to go outside, not the person that apparently spends all day on Lemmy, so much so that is tired of seeing Linux memes on its feed. Have a nice day as well, and I truly mean it.
