Listening to Late Night Linux podcast, and they are the ultimate apologists. They’re talking about a Windows user who tried KDE Plasma. His complaint: desktop feels like beta software and crashes. Their explanation: well, Windows and macOS do too!

I’m starting to get tired of the upvoting and wonder following the “I connected my <insert ‘80s/‘90s computer here> to the Internet using a RasPi/ESP8266/Whatever.” It’s not that hard, people! They did it back in the ‘80s/‘90s too!
