Debian with Cinnamon is good. Mint is just a joke.

Why is it a joke?

>>45497193
because im not enough of a retard to need a fucking one click install for an operating system

>>45497193
Because Xubuntu is Ubuntu without the bloat and with XFCE.

XFCE has a horrible tearing issue though.

Sysadmin here, the gold standard for OS deployment is to not need to click at all.

>>45497193
because win8.1 > dindubuntu

If you have Intel graphics on your machine you can try compton, it works wonderfully, but only on Intel for some reason.

ayyyyy its like you aint even trying.
Obviously, MS made multiple tries to port their tools to Linux, but we, the Lintards, did not accept that aweful behaviour, and thus, MS stopped porting their shit.
Fucking Linfags, I tell you!

>>45497375
Tried it on nvidia with proprietary drivers. It works too.
>>
>>45497381
Yeah like fuck you are. If you want to play around with computers that's fine, it's how most of my coworkers started, but don't think you're clever because your computers aren't important enough to care about their downtime.

Companies use Ubuntu and derivatives whereas I never see anyone deploy Debian any more. It's either Ubuntu, RHEL or SLES

Good goyim. Sacrifice your freedom for convenience and give more shekels to Amazon.

name one good reason to use microsoft bloatware
>>
>>45497193
because vanilla Ubuntu uses the Unity DE, and it's a mess / in transition. use an Ubuntu flavour with a stable, cohesive DE, like Xubuntu (Xfce), Kubuntu (KDE), Ubuntu Studio (Xfce), Gnome Ubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Cubuntu (Cinammon), or Lubuntu (when they finish switching to LXQt) until Unity is more ironed out.

Whole Saturday wasted on making this shit work. I just wanted to have an encrypted Ubuntu system on my external harddrive. Not with this piece of shit operating system I guess.
>>
>>45497666
it isn't as retarded as intellij
>>
>>45497253
>can be turned off

Doesn't matter, it's a matter of ethics. One of the key points that people use Linux for is privacy, and security. The fact that Canonical would even put that feature in there makes them untrustworthy.
>>
>>45497323
>same result
sure m8 keep thinking that
>>
>>45497805

Ah okay guys, turns out that this grub thing actually needs some space on the harddrive to be installed.
