The TOXIC LINUX COMMUNITY!!!!!!!



I just want to passively consoom infotainment about something I don’t even care about for hours a day. If you dare to question my hypersocialized grifter lifestyle, or my cargo-culted nerd status, or the fact that I am always trying to patrol my superiors, I hate to break it to you, but you’ve been approved for TOXIC!

  1. I'm in college for Computer Engineering and I am EXTREMELY interested in the ethics of free software and to ditch all the Spyware and to actively LEARN to make configuration files and enjoy the different kinds of technologies, kernels, all that jazz. I WANT to learn, but I'm just too scared of these people you talk about. I distro-hop, I research all the different linux distros, tools, even in the BSD area to try to find something for me to go upon and extend my knowledge in a more hands-on way. I want to be with others who could give me their advice on where to start and all that good stuff, and I REFUSE to be the toxic individuals who start things just for the sake of their laziness.

    Like I said, I'm wanting to be an engineer, I'm absolutely fascinated with everything tech, but there's just no way I can stick to one distro. I don't do it on purpose, I want to actually KNOW what I'm doing and what I should do to fix it, but either nobody tells me what I'm doing wrong, or they tell me off for being wrong but not tell me their opinion on their "right way." It's all confusing and frustrating but I'm glad I found this channel with someone who can at least explain the big picture with very nice and active followers. I'm I'm instant fan and I'd love to know more and to help others in anyway I can

  2. Using <insert distro here> and installing proprietary software like Steam, Discord etc. is still better than using Windblows 10 with the same software.

  3. This rant told me more about you than the toxic linux community in the title. Well, you are toxic. Complaining about normal users "who do not know how to exit vim" and "install chrome".

  4. I agree with you mostly, but how on earth does not knowing how to use vim make a toxic linux noob who doesn't know that GNU exists and is part of a cult? Vim is a fucking text editor. You edit text with it. Learning ten thousand different combinations just to edit text can seem just not worth learning for some people. I get why people use vim. I can see that if you learn it it will make you more efficient of whatever, but it's a fucking text editor.

  5. Who are these people specifically? Maybe you spend too much time on social media. I haven't came up on any SJW Linux types on YouTube unless, Luke Smith, Gardiner Bryant and Mental Outlaw are toxic.

  6. These people are the kind of people who just use Linux just to get attention from people they are around (usually people who don't even care and end up getting pissed off hearing it).

  7. I don't care about Linux, its just a tool to me like a wrench to work on my car. I care about my dog. It is funny how people on help forums will knock the way you ask a question, you correct it via there concerns, and they don't even answer it afterwards. I imagine many spend way to much time online and get warpped.

  8. I didn't relate to much, but the elitist part man that was soo relatable! Except that I usually find it the opposite. Usually the ones with the enthusiast distros like Gentoo and Arch, are the elitist types, or atleast the ones in the comment sections on YouTube.

  9. I think you're describing "larpers." They consume just enough information to help them perform whichever role they're embracing at the moment, weird internet-people bullshit.

  10. Hahah. I loved this.
    Personally I'm going to be mean here. But yeaaaah there is a Linux community. It is something we have in common. It's a word meaning.
    I also don't really care which distro anyone uses or what software they use. Do as you please. You have the freedom.
    That is what, for me, Linux is all about.
    Really love the CLI. but still need the GUI. Some of us are gamers. We need steam. We will use discord. That is how we communicate with our friends who might not even know what an OS is.
    Some of us are content creators. or maybe even security testers.
    Noone should be outcast for using the tools they need to do the job they want done.
    Oh and BTW I use Arch XD I'm really proud of it. I am doing CompTIA Linux+, LPIC1 and LPIC2.
    I really love using Linux and i would like to use it to generate an income as a sys admin or something.

  11. We never seem to have a Windows community. ? That would probably be the over-stuffed ghetto. Apple is the upper-middle class neighborhood filled with elitists who think they're better than everyone else because they have their walled garden to live in. The BSD people are just weirdos that live out in the woods and shit in a hole they dug, because they don't want to be around anyone else. (Not the manifesto writing types, but maybe the kind that don't shower daily.) ?

  12. have you ever met such people or is it some strawman or sth? Personally people in the „linux community” that I have stumbled upon in the internet are those who actually know quite a lot of stuff and talk about and share code snippets, some tricks etc and also care for the free spftware. and those who ever said something about „cult” where doing this ironically obviously. seriously, do i have to browse american internet more or where to find those grofters you are ranting about?

  13. Been using Linux for a little while now. When I started I needed help and at that time forums were helpful in getting me up and running. Now I return the favour by helping others. Really not interested in what distro, window manager, breakfast cereal you use… These are personal choices. No longer frequent or run a forum anymore to reduce the noise.

  14. One of the reason I'm so upset with the so call "discord community" that every main stream distro have, they all like (being critial thinking, be polite, be respect) yet they don't do it, they don't ask, they judge by their ego. They told me pity and I have to be a pity if I talk back I'm moron and being mute, they clearly don't respect because if they did no one would upset, they have what so call right and wrong and if you in their wrong category then good luck ?. Talk to them just pointless as when you point out that they're wrong they will go insane and sabotage you and yet get away while you being mute just because you upset the "community" mod, I would go back to the good old IRC to ask real question instead
