Linux Still Lags Behind Windows

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 11:19 pm

I tried to download music to my phone. So I plugged the data cord into the Linux Mint laptop and much to my chagrin the device was not seen. I then googled to discover Mint/Ubuntu/Debian/Linux does not automatically mount Androids as a storage device!  WTF?! So I followed some guides to mount the file system. They seemed to work. I could now view the information. Moving data from laptop or even withing the Android though was spotty. After fooling around with it for an hour I gave up and plugged it into my Windows 7 laptop and everything worked fine.

I had no idea Mint/Ubuntu/Debian/Linux was still so backwards.  (When it comes to being used as a consumer.) How many years will it take until we can watch NetFlix and hook up our Androids to Linux boxes?

I’m still quite pleased with my SDD hard drive light never flashing. I doubt I could ever run everything and my work out of ram drives on Windows unless I had 60GBs of RAM! (Certainly not with just 4GBs though.)
