I actually started to believe that Apple Hardware and Software are actually pretty great.
Even on a casual scale, Apple sucks and is so much more limited compared to Android. I wish I could switch back.
What’s the point of using gentoo if you’re not compiling all of the software you use? I was mostly kidding. I used gentoo as my daily driver in 2011 on a shitty 4 core AMD CPU and at most I spent 4 hours compiling firefox and probably the same for KDE.
I compile all my stuff except for rust and Firefox, they take for ever to compile.
If you have a beafy computer then yeah sure, you can enjoy customizing and compiling these packages, but for a laptop It's more convenient to install some binaries for extremely huge packages, just keep it an exception rather than a rule.
