Using iOS as your primary OS is like using desktop Linux.

No, hear me out. See, Linux users don’t care how much easier we say it is in our non-Linux worlds. Sure, they say it’s because of open access and free as in scotch ale and yadda yadda yadda, but really? They like the challenge. Figuring out how to do what they used to do on a Mac or Windows PC is part of the allure.

While, of course, I can't speak for all Linux users I totally can say for myself: bullshit. he can't be more wrong. A lot of things would be easier if I would use OS X, especially during my work time. I use Linux because of two reasons: it offers an overall benefit since as a developer a lot of things work better for me using Linux and it is libre software.
