is it worth it?
The Linux Desktop is the canonical waste of time in the realm of computing sphere. You can meticulously customize and modify your distro but you will always encounter issues that you would avoided if you just used Windows.
Stick to Windows.
I think this used to be true but lately I've installed a few different distros and it's been amazing how little I have actually needed to customize them and how well they've worked on different machines. not everyone is into it for autistic ricing, some people just want something quick and free that works
No out-of-the-box distro can get my printer working, let alone over a network.
It's the opposite when coding. I've used Windows, Mac, and Linux extensively throughout my career using different languages, and Linux is just so much easier for everything when installing dev tools, dependencies, and building executables.
For gaming though, Windows is still unmatched. That being said, I predict Linux will become the true gamer OS over time as Windows caters more and more to tablet and phone fags.
Is there a single reason to use linux over windows/mac os besides privacy?
Can update everything on my PC at the same time.
Don't have to deal with Apple/Microsoft shit.
Better compatibility for a lot of older games.
Windows 10/11 randomly roll out untested patches that break systems, delete applications, hang laptops on startup, et cetera. I've fixed enough bullshit on other people's machines that I'm never going to use it. I'm done. Linux basically wins by default. I've run it exclusively for years now with no issues. Old game compatibility was the only thing keeping me on Windows but then they fucked that up too.
>hang laptops on startup
Had that on mine because it automatically downloaded drivers for hardware i didnt use.
Just get Arch. I know the old meme is that people get recommended Arch and they hate it but it's well documented, will generally have the up-to-date software you need to do what you want and you'll be creating most of your own problems so the coinflip of whether you'll be able to find the cause of your issues is a bit more in your favor.
The problem is that the reverse is also true but you will always hit the wall in Windows that affirms that the OS isn't truly yours to do with as you want.

I can mostly adjust the user experience to match what I want. Windows has been continuously been moving towards more layers of user unfriendly design in the interest of making it less intimidating to the computer illiterate.
It just doesn't really take advantage of the fact that Windows is in theory one unified environment wherein they have full control of the design so there's no real upside over something more mismatched.
it's windows 10 but some gay messed the ui up even more (no)
11 has been fine so far, I think all windows is kinda shit so there's no real reason not to upgrade if you're going to use it in the first place
windows has a record of every other one being good
that doesn't ring true at all considering how many windows autists cling to 7 and how shit every one since 7 has been
7 is dead. if I could I'd still use windows 98.
well I'm just saying, I can't think of a version of windows past 7 that people have any real attachment to so I don't think this "every other" rule is real
no wait for 12
the m1 macbook air (16gb)
If you like new things over working computer then yes
once you get past all of the bullshit win10 is fine. takes a lot of tuning though.
I find the Windows 10 debloater works best. Got like a 7% (if my math was correct) increase in speed afterwards.
Yes, but only after you run the Sophia Script, the decrapifier script, the debloater script, and ShutUp10
>windows 7 with the classic theme
>that completely GDI based UI free of aero compositor lag and vsync
it's fucking glorious I miss it so much bros
i love old ass programs that beat modern shit just because they do their fucking job. This firewall looks outdated as shit but IS FUCKING FANTASTIC. It has one job not let anything do anything without my fucking say and it does it every time. its stopped "critical google updates" that apparently ran every time i booted up the computer shits great. If anyone gots any other software that does this please let me know.
>UI all fucked up
>Clearly designed for tablet/mac users
>Have to jump through hoops and provide personal information before you're allowed to install any program not from the microsoft store
Not only no, but fuck no.
When i upgraded to 11 from 10, it broke my cooling fan and my cpu was getting up to 90 degrees C idling. I made sure my drivers were updated and there were no background programs running that would cause it to run.
Nothing. I replaced my liquid cooling fan and it still overheats. I down graded back to 10 and its just doesn't work and updated the drivers and nothing improved. I tried taking to get fixed but at this point im better off just getting a new machine. It essentially bricked my machine.
no, wait a few years until the pozz is removed as much as possible by the community and to not be a guinea pig and get fucked by updates like many w10 early adopters did. Everything works on w10.
as someone who regularly upgrades windows to the newer version, this is the first time I went back to an older version of windows.
it's not worth it.
they removed the 2nd monitor having a clock on the taskbar I use my main monitor for fullscreen gaming and gotta alt tab to check the time when it used to be just a glance fucking apes over at microsoft need to hang.
how do I make windows 11 not fucking terrible bros?
Nah it's a shitty phone meme OS. it's not for computers.
It starts by blocking you from installing anything and trying to lock you into only using aps from the Microsoft store. you need to make a Microsoft account just to install programs on your own fuckig computer.
it's really good at fucking up and obfuscating previously simple core functions.
can't even copy and paste without going through 2 fucking menus on that piece of shit.
I'm glad I'm on linux
Went from 10 to 11 and for the first time in decades of using Microsoft products, everything "just werked" after upgrading, no driver bullshit or random bluescreens. There doesn't seem to be any noticeable performance difference compared to 10, but the UI in general looks nicer and more consistent.
windows past 7 has been trying to remove the P from PC
It is, but you will have to apply a bunch of fixes to make it usable.
just a scam to trick big business into paying a monthly sub for access to windows
microshit have been saying for years now they want to switch everything to a subscription model
dont wanna pay?
no problem, but you'll be unable to launch non-approved .exe files until you pay goyim
people already pay a monthly sub to use Office and Excel
>b-but what about home users and gamers?
literally 1% of the market
they were only ever interested in companies having to fork over $50k/month in subscriptions to keep their IT shit working
t.i work in a hotel and we're already subjected to this shit on the PCs at work
Who knows, neither my current pc nor my laptop can install windows 11
Enjoy playing cat and mouse with bloat services that randomly start downloading god knows what.
maybe if you have a memecore cpu and you're an epic gamerer but don't bother with insider shit, not worth crashing
