Very astute matter you raised good man.
As one can see, and as someone who has used Windows and Mac pouring close to a few tens of thousands of $$$ into these platforms and now really digging into Linux wish I could give you some answers.
The possee that road in and unloaded their guns here have more knowledge than I , and like you, would just like some reassurance from them as to the matter as a few have with their knowledge.
Others though have taken to shooting the wrong people or anything moving that is not the OS or platform THEY use. How rediculous and sandbox childish.
Chevy? Ford? Mercedes Benz? Toyota? I DON’T CARE!
I just need to get from A to B without highway robbery happening.
