is an advance piece of technology that in order to appreciate it we need to understand it well. It bugs me when I see average users, comparing "Linux" (air quote) with MacOS or Windows when they actually are comparing their desktop env with those others. when it comes to the kernel itself is in a different level.

Mostly differentiation is implicitly inferred as Linux ecosystem (Linux and softwares around it) or Windows ecosystem (Windows and softwares around it).

@ebi I know what you mean. That's true in many cases and in many other cases users see them as a monolith thing. Thinking if desktop env Y sucks so Linux sucks as well which obviously an incorrect logic.

I think it's easy to produce incorrect comparison as I see frequently these days.
