If we can make Linux software run on i*OS/MacOS/Windows why can't/shouldn't we make that software run on Linux. We have!

Wine (+ available utilities to use alongside) to run most Windows applications.
Proton (+ available utilities) to run Windows games (flawless for most titles, even AAA
2 Popular anti-cheat software has been made available for Linux
Many native Linux titles

no MacOS Software on Linux yet, probably easy to port considering the similarities between the operating systems

someone please port a bunch of Mac software to Linux.

Tired of the mainstream browsers being so darn slow, taking so much RAM on your super old laptop. Well, Catalyst is the solution. It is a zero compromise browser that will run on anything! Available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux! It is super fast and customizable with a fresh and modern UI!!!.

Always use the latest version of an antivirus. To get the latest security and protection, it is also recommended to use the latest version of MacOS or one that get's security patches. Update your software or you will regret it, and you will have several risks waiting for you.

It's really easy to port things to and from MacOS… It's unfortunate that no devs do this.

yeah, shame on them. Lots of shame, plenty of it, all of it.

It's really interesting, I've seen quite a few people now reacting to Linus's Daily Driver challenge thing with Linux, and some are suggesting that he may be trolling the Linux community- I haven't taken the time to watch though them, but it's interesting nonetheless.

I think there are some cases where I was a bit, eh, but I think Linus is pointing out some serious issues in Linux.

Also, the point made made here is really good.

I use MIT mostly… I'm not sure about GNU or Apache though

Well, Luke has been using Linux for over 2 years and still had some issues. Linus, not so much… He had many more issues but they both had things like NVIDA graphics cards which don't help. Anybody who thinks that they were trolling has to realize that they're supposed to be average users in these departments.

not always. look at Vorbis. it was a free format competing against non-free formats (WMA, AAC, MP3). Using the GPL would hinder its adoption, since proprietary media players are used a lot.

True, I think Stallman himself said something (not endorsing all his views on software, just observing) to that effect.
