The Problem with Linux

there are these problems you hear about all the time. Stuff like “Linux doesn’t have that one game I play” or “hardware support is sometimes spotty” but I think those are just filler for what would otherwise be a rather sparse list of truly technical issues.

Sure, the various package formats and the sheer choice anxiety of desktop environments--or even no environment at all--can give the impression that the desktop Linux ecosystem is fragmented. And while the duplication of effort can seem like a setback--that’s kind of what makes Linux great.
