          Does a human ever actually see anything you do on your Windows PC or is it just benign telemetry uploaded to some server and left to rot?

        The spying is ultimately inconsequential. Yes, it's an invasion of our privacy. Yes, Microsoft HQ should be carpet bombed, but in reality, their data collection will not come to any kind of fruition. You are secure in being one among the millions of other westerners using the internet and the odds of a day coming where the government or corpos will use their data of you talking about internet dramas on an anonymous pet grooming forum against you are incredibly slim. And if something does come of it then even if you had airtight cyber security it wouldn't matter because the world would probably be so different that it wouldn't matter in the long run.

        The best thing you can do is invest into your physical security. Buy a gun, learn how to use it. Buy a house in the woods with a backup generator and a way to collect rainwater. Get some night vision cameras around the perimeter. Become so much trouble to deal with that they don't bother coming for your anime figures and fleshlights.

                I installed Ubuntu on my grandmas PC ages ago and she worked with it just fine cause all she does is browse the web, watch youtube or read the news. If i didn't tell her it was Linux she wouldn't even know.

                Admitting that you play any of those games be it on Windows or elsewhere should be a public ban.
                >but muh software
                Yes. Linux is behind when it comes to most types of software be it Adobe and what not.
                But let's be honest here - Nobody here is using that shit. There are no graphic designers, artists or other creative roles in this thread. If you claim you are you are lying. I know because i have friends who work in that field and nobody there has any time to shitpost on Ganker about fricking Operating Systems.
                >piracy
                Works just as well as on Windows. Unless you want Native Linux builds which are obviously harder to get cause less people seed those torrents if they exist at all. But that's hardly a deal breaker cause proton and wine allow you to play the Windows versions pirated or not anyway

      That's definitely a lie, but you don't notice it anymore If a new game crashes on Windows, you will restart it several times. But if a new game crashes a single time on Linux, you would say that you always have problems with gaming on Linux.

        Wrong. The only time I've had a game crash on me repeatedly is if I'm modding it or fricking around with the config files. But that's clearly a me 'issue' (not even an issue, its expected when you're fricking around with files), its not a Windows issue. Otherwise, its been ages since a game has just straight up not worked or was crashing.

        No. The point people are making is the hypocrisy. You're hyper focusing on Windows when you're already getting spied on in 10 different and arguably much worse ways. Expecting the average person to give a frick when their smartphone tracks their every move already and ISP knows every single website they've ever gone to and they FBI is already up their ass through backdoors in their CPU is just pointless.

      >gaming on linux

      >Replacing GNOME/Plasma with a WM

      I refuse to ever use a command line. Simple as.

      For a non-graphical task a CLI just werks.
      The designer doesn't have to worry about cluttering up the interface, making it work with a toolkit or anything like that. It just needs to follow a few conventions for syntax.
      Anyone can handhold you through a CLI very easily, there's no need to tell you to click through different menus, ask you what software you're using, or whatever, you just copy and paste.
      Obviously a graphical task can be made very intuitive with a GUI and some people suck at designing CLI, but CLI is very useful for most things.

      same for me but for windows. I wont use windows until i can install all software and libraries in 1 second just by doing install <package>, and also update them. And system update (with all software included) should take a few seconds to download and install

      The package manager is just so comfy. I hate needing to find and navigate a poorly optimized corporate website to manually acquire drivers.

          yes, and those webservers are doing tasks that linux is very good at because thats what everyone uses linux for.
          hardly anyone uses linux as a pc desktop environment, which is why they suck at specifically doing that. theres simply not enough demand for people to work in their freetime to make an OS work good as a desktop when everyone is using windows or macos anyways.
          yes, there are plenty of linux desktop distros, but no one uses them because they are shit, and they are shit because no one wants to improve them, and no one wants to improve them because no one uses them anyways.

        that's if you fricked your system, most linux solutions are:
        1. install software with a generic name
        2. open an ui and press button

      If you want to game on linux do the following:
      >use arch (or an easier arch based distro like endeavor)
      Why? It's lightweight and bleeding edge = good perf & most recent updates = all the gaming benefits and compatibility. Everything benefiting steamOS (the Steam Deck OS) is in baseline arch.
      >use xfce4 as your desktop environment
      Why? It's stable, simple and minimalist. KDE plasma is a popular choice (and the deck uses it for its desktop mode) but it's kind of a buggy POS sometimes. This is a personal rec, you can experiment with different DEs
      >If use use an nvidia card, use the proprietary nvidia drivers bc the open source ones suck atm

          1. that's just recording software in general, in general linux shouldn't and cannot do this because it's a dangerous privacy concern, linux software by following unix security cannot analyze and make software which needs to scan program processes by the privacy issues that it causes, pressing a button is enough and it's quick, use obs tho.
          2. if you use a debian distro made for non experienced users there is an option to remove the password requirements.
          in general unless you want rootkits or to do complex shit linux is just 4 clicks to fix anything.

            WebRender
            I had more problems with WebRender on software mode, which is what I got if I set up the display to use 10bit instead of 8bit color (for some reason firefox really doesn't like it)
            I tried with different compositors and with them disabled as well (I use tearfree, results are different, but none smooth)

      it's very likely that if your pc is good that firefox is using a generic package which could frick the processes on the firefox native package thanks to catchy making changes to improve things on some programs while most likely fricking others, in general i recommend that you do a live usb on generic arch and with that see if that's the case, this is the issue of os's which change the standard instead of just having changes to specific program behavior, you frick a lot of thing instead of one and is harder to solve.

    My only persistent issue with Windows is they perfected the Start Menu in 7 and have fricked it up every version since. I use a program to return the 7 start menu but it should just be that instead of needing a third party to fix it. It's not enough to want to change OS though.

          Or maybe windows doesn't crash as much as linux so they don't feel the need to report things, also there are a ton more windows users, so just by numbers alone you should have more reports, but they don't, so it pretty much confirms that linux is way more buggy.

        Platform specific bugs are very rare. What is most likely is that some bugs happen more often on one platform than another or it is because the timing works out slightly different when things are multithreaded. Not only do Linux users submit more bug reports, they submit better ones too. They often give steps to reproduce and logs which some of my coworker dont even do.

      Half the linux users here are Steam Deck users
      They have a handheld that's only capable of running newer games on very low settings at the resolution of the Wii if they want the thing to last for more than an hour. So you're obviously going to see more indie games or 15 to 30 year old games.

        In fact, let me say that if there wasn't a need to shill the deck, we wouldn't be having these threads at all even if we still had as much compatibility with games as we have today. Most people don't really particularly care whether you play games on linux or windows, if on PC. As a loonix user myself I don't see a reason why the OS is so relevant other than for many a times marginal performance differences.

          On nvidia the firmware determines the clocks not the driver. All this setting does is force the card to run at maximum clockspeed at all times (still subject to opportunistic boost clocks, throttling and temp/voltage limits). In 90% of games it's just throwing out efficiency out of the window for no reason.

    Why is it that on linux there have been enormous advances towards making games work properly, to the point anything coming out has a good chance of working unless it's a gacha or has 7 layers of DRM or some intrusive anticheat, but when it comes to productivity software such as the adobe suite/affinity suite, or newer versions of office, linux still shits the bed? Is it just Valve being involved?

      Valve really helped big time with their own initiatives but software development is a little more complicated than your average videogame.
      You can't just "emulate" Windows on Linux and expect the software to run - Programs like Adobe interact with the OS far deeper.

      Doesn't mean it's impossible to improve something like Wine to make it work anyway - but there also isn't much demand for it in the first place.
      Many people might say they would drop Windows if Adobe and the likes would work on Linux but most Linuxgays simply do not care. Adobe for example is very unpopular and that's why many simply refuse to even try getting their software to run on Linux. Other software come with DRM shit and at the end of the day even many diehard Linux users just think that sticking with GIMP, Krita and the likes is easier - Better to make those tools better than trying to port Windows software to Linux.

        As much as adobe is shit, in 15 years of fricking around with linux I still couldn't get used to GIMP. It is just counter intuitive at its core. For basic tasks even a fricking web based editor (Photopea) is more usable, it's nuts.
        I don't think there should be an effort to bring Adobe to Linux, since their shit performs terrible on Windows, but I could never get used to GIMP. I wish Affinity decided to at least partially support linux, as their shit just works better overall, but nope.

      It works fine for my machine, Ryzen 9 5900X & RX6900XT with 96 GiB RAM. I don't game at 4k, though I do run 3 monitors, not sure how that compares to running a game on one monitor at 4k. Despite the specs I don't have much interest in very fancy graphics, but everything I throw at it runs well, and if it doesn't it's more than likely a game issue. If you don't have any solid plans I'd stay away from Nvidia and save yourself the headache, they have notoriously poor drivers, but they've been getting in line recently.

Before that, on Windows 10, multiple claims about how pirate and cheating software would be detected and surgically removed and reported through nefarious means. Before that, that the system would periodically take screenshots and send them to Microsoft. And way before that, how Security boot was also there to spy on you.

        Point is not 0.1% of people who read that and got spooked will permanently switch to linux. At best there'll be some dual booters and some people will just try harder to disable whatever comes their way (or avoid buying the specific hardware that's required for it)

          But 10 was just 8.1 with a new coat of paint, Cortana and more telemetry.
          And so i stayed on Windows 7 until support died - after that i switched to openSUSE KDE.

        Yuzu died and Ryujinx is focusing on Mac and Windows now.

        >Ryujinx is focusing on Mac and Windows now.
        But Mac is based on BSD, how different could Ryujinx on Mac be from Linux?

        I still have Yuzu installed for some older already released titles where it works better,
        But Ryujinx is still alive and getting support so its the only reasonable option for all future games.

        Both work fine on Linux. Partially even better than on Windows but thats mostly due to your average Linux distro not hogging as many ressources.

        Which games run better on Yuzu? I recall Deckgays having problems getting certain games running at 30 FPS, like Pokemon Sword and more recently I think the newest Zelda also ran better on old Yuzu builds

          TOTK runs better on Yuzu generally speaking. Just to make one example.
          Yuzu in general has tons of hacks in place that make it run better. While Ryujinx has less hacks but it is generally more stable.

        The guide was made with Linux Mint and its a bit old so some of the directions bring back errors or don't work anymore, but I was able to get things up and running on current versions of ubuntu and linux mint, and it does provide some guidance for other distros. It also has specific directions for older RPGM engines like XP and VX Ace and also for newer stuff like MV and MZ. But yeah, as long as you just follow the guide it should still run fine even if you do get some errors or have to skip some steps. Might need to tinker a bit, but the games will run.
