And yet cross-platform open-source ventures like LibreOffice, GIMP, RAWTherapee, Scribus, MuseScore, et al, do not seem to have any problem managing "this chaos," as well as the chaos Microsoft and Apple have foisted over the years. Or are you suggesting developers at MuseScore are better than their counterparts at Sibelius?BigEasy wrote:Mostly because Linux very often reinventing the wheel: X11, Wayland, Mir, GTK 1, 2, 3, Qt, Unity - progressive and great, Unity - canceled (appeared bad?)... e.t.c, e.t.c, e.t.c.

This excuse is almost as feeble as the 'too many package managers and desktop environments' to support excuses. They are not insurmountable obstacles.
The reason a Linux version of iTunes is not available is not because Apple does not have the expertise to create one. For starters, Linux is a very real threat to macOS.
Adobe does not have to support Linux, and there is not a significant economic reason for it to support Linux. On the other hand, Adobe has to support macOS and it would face severe economic pressure if it were to abandon Apple.
