Technology is more than wanking over operating system choice. At some point in my life I also was a Linux apologist. The turning point for me was when someone came up with content aware scaling algorithm, and I decided to download and read his code. To my great surprise it was written for Visual Studio and Windows. After contemplating about this for a while, I realized that it matters little what tool you use, the important part is what you do. One day you will realize this also.

I can't install it on my laptop. I downloaded new mint beta ISO and made bootable stick (twice, first with LiLi and then Rufus). It boots just fine and devices work, but I can't actually install it (installation stucks at preparing stage, before I can even set up partitions). Syslog is full of i/o errors on usb drive which is super weird. I checked the drive for bads and formatted it few times and didn't find anything suspicious. I've also checked the ISO's hashsum. And I used this same drive few times before to install previous version of mint mate edition on a work machine. Send help.
I remember having similar (from the perspective of GUI) issues with ubuntu 16.04 install but there was a bug in installer and it was easily solved by creating some soft links to devices, this one is different.

What are you talking about OP? Linux is a kernel, it doesn't have "apps." If you want apps you can install something like Ubuntu which has an app store.

>I don't want to stop using them just to adopt a new operating system

If the vendor of those apps is trying to force you to use whatever their favorite operating system is then they probably don't have your best interests in mind.

Except in reality it's exactly the opposite. Once you pay an app developer they stop caring about you at all. Why should they bother? They already got your money, any bugfixes they give out after that are just charity.

I have so many things I want to say on the subject.

Like how every Linux zealot I ran into had no idea how his OS worked. How they had to google commands.

In my opinion it's a disease of the mind, be a nonconformist just to be one.

It's a primitive OS written in primitive times... Meditate on the tragedy of this http://www.unixguide.net/unix/faq/1.3.shtml and maybe read the Unix haters handbook
