games are most definitely programs or software.
the answer to why it's different than on windows is complex, and i feel simple today...

Because traditionally Windows has basically had (and still does) the most market share in the desktop PC market. With consoles and in recent years smartphones, tablets, etc having the rest of the market share.

And particularly in the desktop PC market, game developers usually want to make $$$, therefore Windows is where those $$$ are because of it's desktop dominance. Now smartphones and tablets in particular are taking at least some of that market share.

So given Android is Linux, Linux has the most market share in the smartphone and tablet markets. While there is also the Steam client for desktop/laptop PC's, I doubt it's going to be much of a threat to Windows in particular.

That's about the size of it to my way of thinking, and if I'm understanding your question correctly...

jsbjs001 Has got it right, but what he doesn't mention is that as he explains there are two systems that are totally different. What he's left out was what I heard from Bill Gates in an interview, a Secretary in say Melbourne can take a job in Bombay, and from Bombay in Paris. This is the strength of Windows one system more or less around the office world.

So what's Linux/Android or iPhone? Well a massive market of communication standardisation. Totally different, WhatsApp, Google Chrome proves that the amount of people using it each day-millions. The Millions of mobile phones may outstrip the number of PC and Mac computers. For those not in the Office or business environment, they seldom use the business apps, not that they don't exist on mobiles these days. The dog chasing the tail is causing people to rush to buy mobiles with options they will hardly use, or won't even know how to use them.

So where does Linux fit in? The minimal but growing slowly numbers of users look for better stability and security. Also to be honest, can't pay or don't want to pay for programmes. The minus is the diversity of distros, even though it's a plus to those who think about it and owners of clapped out computers which they love.

Now Microsoft has found out that they can advance by partnership with the Linux World. Linux is innovation.

would you care to specify why native Linux replacements aren't satisfactory in your opinion?
I thought Linux had enough and sufficiently advanced raster & vector graphics editors.

IrfanView has been mentioned on this thread several times, with XnViewMP (https://www.xnview.com/en/xnviewmp/) often suggested as a replacement.

Also see http://www.boekhoff.info/install-irfan-view-on-linux/ for instructions on installing IrfanView under WINE.

From the IrfanView FAQ (https://www.irfanview.com/faq.htm#PAGE9):

Quote:
Q: Can I use IrfanView on Linux?
A: Yes. There is no native-Linux version of IrfanView. However, you can use IrfanView in conjunction with Linux programs like WINE, Windows Linux emulators and Linux-based virtual machines. Take the ZIP version of IrfanView and unzip it or copy your existing Windows IrfanView folder to Linux. This is easier because the installer may need additional Windows DLLs to run. See instructions on: IrfanView on Linux with Wine

I hope they do a Plex media server for gnu/linux.

All they offer is for windows, mac and embedded devices like Raspberry Pi, Roku and etc.

They most certainly do. https://www.plex.tv/media-server-downloads/. On the left hand side, select linux from the dropdown box.

You're right. There are two tabs, PLex media server and Apps & Devices. Your link took me to the right tab. Thanks

There is no plex package for PclinuxOS, so I would have to install one of the supported distros ( Ubuntu, Fedora and Centos ) in a virtual machine.

+1 thanks

Actually, you can install it from an rpm repository (I think; it has been a while since I used PCLinuxOS). There are instructions here, though it looks as though they are a few years old. It MAY be that you an now use a newer version, but it is worth reading this page for the warnings, at least - http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201406/page12.html

As a general rule, I thought that for PCLinuxOS, you could use the Fedora repositories.
