i'm glad i have so many followers who use windows, because no matter how horrible my posts get, they won't bother looking for an alternative to them

"oh yeah, she just posts these giant advertisements now. it's not too bad since you can just scroll past them."

"she DMs me repeatedly to call me a wanker but i just muted that word and now the DMs don't show up"

"i mean, considering all the work she does on the posts, $150 isn't too bad a price for the premium subscription"

@lynnesbian considering how cute and pretty she is, $150 isn't too bad a price for the premium subscription

@lynnesbian to be fair, the amount you post about dicks this probably describes me

@lynnesbian cursed masto account who drinks your pepsi and calls you a wanker.

@lynnesbian I like to randomly restart my follower's computers so they lose all their work and appreciate me more.

@lynnesbian I forget who said it but it’s so true. People will always rally behind the person who calls for change. Until they realize that it means they have do something differently from what they’re doing now.

@lynnesbian they are essentially becoming a full software as a service subscription service with 2 level tiers for a while now, which is consequential but weird.

@lynnesbian I will not be shamed for my aversion to having to use WINE and WINEtricks to get programs that I already use to run less smoothly c:

I have a Linux partition, I just ignore it most of the time because it's so much less convenient

@jacethechicken ah okay, if you're using it for intensive gaming then yeah that makes sense

@jacethechicken @lynnesbian for me it was the same until I started using R daily for the job. Now the Windows partition gets visited twice a month if lucky.

@lynnesbian Insert inflated head meme here with "centrist" crossed-out and replaced with MacOS.

@lynnesbian damn that's the best toot about Windows I ever read :')

@Nocta subscribe to Lynne Sbian for constant disparagements of everyone's favourite operating system monopoly

@lynnesbian Must admit, the only reason I have a windows machine is because games. If the games I want and have paid for were playable on linux, I'd migrate completely, but with most there's just no way. Many of course will run in wine or another emu, but even when they do, it's usually with limited functionality and you end up spending 80% of your time struggling to make things work.

I do have Linux machines, of course. Its just the big screen, game-setup is Windows because meh! Life sucks!

@Bisexuhell there are easier to use distros like elementary and mint that don't require usage of the command line

@Bisexuhell distribution, ubuntu is a "distro" of Linux, as is arch, mint, etc. they're different things that come with seperate sets of bundled software, for example, mint comes with the cinnamon desktop environment, whereas fedora comes with gnome. both of them are still linux, and you can install linux programs on either of them

serious tech talk, not at all a critique of you

@Bisexuhell you don't have to install it from a seperate computer actually, you can burn it to a DVD/USB from the computer you're using

but if you're using it for intensive gaming then yes, windows is sadly your only option

@lynnesbian Remember when we had antitrust laws and sued Microsoft for even just including Internet Explorer with windows

@elomatreb whew, good thing we stopped that before it got out of control

@lynnesbian people who use Ubuntu can quickly move to another distro, putting pressure on Canonical.

People who use Windows can quickly realize they have no alternative 🐈
