What I mean is GNU/Linux world carries heavy burden and has to acccomodate
oceans of hardwares spanning decades. So it's not proper and fair to
compare GNU/Linux with MacOS since Mac(OS) is a self-contained ecosystem
and distates hardware - generally after several major releases (like two
or three) you have to ditch your computer and buy a latest one to use
latest OS.

Just arguing with OP. I didn't suggest anything.
