“None of my applications run on Linux
What you probably meant to say is ‘I’m so old and decrepit that I can’t learn new things so I can’t acclimate to an environment without some shitty Adobe or Microsoft application’. Don’t get me wrong, there are some pieces of software that just don’t have an equivalent for Linux (*cough* Ableton Live *cough*), but for the most part, everything else has about 10 alternatives and at least a couple of them are better than you’re willing to accept. Don’t blame Linux if you built your career around a proprietary application, that’s your fault.
This is also true of people in my office that insist on installing Word 95 on the new desktop we upgraded them to. One actually got a newer copy of office thinking they’d like better then the OpenOffice I’ve been trying to switch us to. They hated it cuz it wasn’t “95 enough.” I broke that old disk and now we run OpenOffice. Get over it and start teaching yourself to deal with new stuff. Sure it’s not comfortable but you’re a better person for it. Thank me later.
