How....do you 'hate' an OS ?
Some 1's and 0's are uglier and meaner than others!
How many of us have said we hate Micro$oft and Apple!!
But seriously, I think it has to do with politics. IBM owns this company, or Oracle owns that company.
Some people say: I've had a bad experience with them in the past, so I hate anything they make.
Maybe I had an IBM computer that didn't work well, or I used an Oracle database that I never get customer support on.
For other people, I think peer pressure still matters. All my friends hate it, so I'll hate it too.
It's similar in many realms. I hate Chevolet, or I hate Fords, or I hate Chryslers.
Maybe it's because your friends hate that brand, or maybe it's because you had a bad experience with one brand.
(It broke down on me) But at the end of the day... it's just a hunk of metal... and you hurt it's feelings!
I frequently see things like I hate Dell, HP, Lenovo, Toshiba, or Apple.
Having said all that, there are some flavors of Linux I don't use. Distrowatch.org has 100 distro's listed.
It's possible there are more than that. I don't have the time and hardware to try them all.
I don't hate them, I just have never used them.
I have tried most of the "popular" Distro's. Almost all of them are good. I have had better luck with some
than others. I have noticed some are more "Enterprise" Oriented than others. (Some people hate that)
Some are more game oriented, or development oriented, or feature oriented.
Use what make sense for you. Use what has what you need, and works well with your system.
Over the years, the biggest divides I have seen in Linux over some of the weirdest things.
This one is sysV init based, that one systemd based. This one is RPM based, that one is DEB based.
This one is Wayland based, that one is X11 based. This one is a bleeding edge rolling release, that
one is a LTS stable relase. We all have "preferences".
"Hate " is such an over used word.....especially when directed at an operating system.
Ahem... too true. I suspect it doesn't matter much when talking about bits and bytes.
I suspect it matters quite a bit when talking about people.
