Have I ever mentioned how much I love these YouTube remixes?
RE: Wondering where the disconnect is occurring...
Is this unreasonable?
It's clearly extremely unreasonable, unless you never actually plan to support more than 10 simultaneous users.
These guys want several thousand per month for this level of service (and are asking for more, reaching into the 5-digit range now)
The appropriate thing here is to call them and ask "WTF are you morons doing". Maybe they can get it fixed. Probably not.
The "speech recognition+AI assistant" market has boomed recently so I'd expect there to be a few alternatives at least.
RE: Why desktop operating systems have completely failed at their job for the last 20 years
What happens if the software's not in a package manager because the developer, for example, wants to sell it for a profit? What's the Linux solution to that? Is it "fuck off, asshole?" I think it is.
In Ubuntu, I'm pretty sure you can just distribute a .deb file. The user can double click and select "install", which will download any dependencies from the official repositories, or you can include them in your file if you want.
No, while repositories are definitely far from perfect, the are not the main problem.
The REAL problem is, as I've said before, that there is no such thing as the "GNU/Linux OS". Ubuntu is one arbitrary set of open source software configured one way, RHEL is a different one, and OpenSuse is a different one.
So you simply can't make a "Linux program", unless you only want to use text I/O and don't depend on external services. You make a Ubuntu program, or an OpenSUSE program.
There are a number of "standards" (OpenDesktop, LSB) that attempt to specify how to do certain things so that programmers can rely on them, but it's an impossible goal, because if all distros actually followed those they'd simply end up being the same distro.
