And they;re still paid in Reichsmarks? Or did their bosses break that promise to them? I also take it there are not people under 25 in the areas you refer to, or did they break the promise of not being alive also?

Now you're missing the point. Your argument was that "everyone has fast internet today". This is simply not true, not even in "modern" countries.

No. My point was that the world is a different place than it was 25 years ago and people's goals change in that period of time.
Not everything has to "move with the times" and it is good, sometimes, when things don't but suggesting that there's something wrong with goals changing over a 25 year period is just odd.

News from the "so much better than Windows" world: At least two of the snap packages, 2048buntu and Hextris, uploaded to the Ubuntu Snaps Store by user Nicolas Tomb, contained malware.

More to the point and from the same link you provided and I quote below;

How was this possible? Well, the Ubuntu Snap Store allows anyone to upload snap packages, as opposed to packages (deb) available in the official Ubuntu repositories. The reason for this is to provide more easily installable packages to its users.
Not much more needs to be said.

When was the last time that the great Microsoft had a major problem with users uploading malware to an official Windows Store?

And since when did people traditionally download and install their software from the "Windows Store" ?? Oh, that's right, they well, didn't. Linux package managers also predate the "Windows Store" and have also existed for a LOT longer. Furthermore, since when did most (if not ANY) Linux distro's let users add their own software packages to official software repositories - including Ubuntu ??? That's right, they don't.

Ouch!

Good answer, confirming my understanding that Dumbuntu has a massive security problem unparalleled by Microsoft.

Thanks. So how are official Linux distro software repositories unsafe or any unsafer than "Windows Store" ?? Remembering that users cannot add their own software packages to official repositories - even with Ubuntu. Ubuntu is also ONE distro of 100's out there.

Also, Linux is still a LOT safer than Winblow$ has EVER BEEN when it comes to malware!!!! Suck on that!!

How is something that is named "Ubuntu Something Store" not official?

Either you're trolling or you did not read the words "Ubuntu Snap Store". A "snap package" is not a deb package, now is it?

Which sounds to me like the official Ubuntu place to find Snap thingies. (Weren't those things not mainly copies of Windows's .exe installers? Hm, hm.)

You obviously are, still claiming that Broken Lin$ux is anywhere near "secure", even "more secure" than Windows 10. Please fix your calendar.

Alright, let me put it another way... can you install Ubuntu from "snap packages" ??? ding, ding, ding, and the answer is NO! You can't. But you CAN and WOULD install it from DEBIAN packages!

I would say YOU obviously are, but that's right... when was Winblow$ ever secure in the first place ?? oh, that's right, NEVER!!! Ouuucccccchhhhhhhhhhhh! hehe.

Starting with Windows NT: By design. Unlike the Lin$ux losers called "kernel developers", Microsoft is fine with dropping backwards compatibility if it improves security.

How come the Lin$ux n00bs need third-party patches (SELinux, AppArmor, grsecurity, PaX and whatever) to achieve a remotely similar security level to what Windows brings you out of the box? Even with a nice GUI!
