MacOS isn't "bad Linux" because it isn't based on Linux. It is based on the real OS that Linux copied  tongue

I'd rather do UNIX work and coding on OSX than try to do office software on linux.  But a valid point in some ways.  I don't know what it would be like to try creating a slide deck on CentOS but my gut tells me that I'd wish I was using MS PowerPoint before I completed it.

In fun Android cross thread thing, plugged my phone into the laptop to try and put some music files on it and it doesn't show up when put to MTP setting. Apparently it's a fairly common issue with Windows generally. In this case it makes the USB connection sound when it switches settings or I connect/disconnect it but nothing shows up in Device Manager. If I stick it in MIDI mode I get the phone appearing under Software devices but otherwise nada.

For all that I don't really enjoy using Apple interfaces (I have tried and maybe there's some options somewhere I haven't found but I love Android widgets and really prefer the Windows taskbar) being able to plug one device into another and have things just work without trawling the net looking for driver files is pretty appealing.

I seem to remember a similar problem the last time I backed up my s5 before upgrading.
