Nope. Happens even to people who do Linux tutorials for years.
That's why this trash will never be popular on the desktop.
>posts a video about a man who is mad about a particular game due to graphics drivers as his main argument
>talks about how there are no games for it
At least have some consistency in your trolling.
At this point one has to ask whether you inherited your stupidity from your mother and father, or whether they just had bad luck as parents and your stupidity is unique to you.
Ubuntu works just fine, if not better than windows as a Facebook machine.
Highly unlikely chance of malware or viruses.
Unprecedent driver support in comparison to windows. Outside of graphics, but the OSS radeon works excellent.
So if you just run native applications and games, you'll be alright.
oh gosh, she's adorable

Also, this. I've had so much less breakage since switching from Debian to Arch. It's actually kind of mind-blowing.
>tfw I try to recommend everyone use Arch and they think I'm joking or insist it's too hard because of stupid propaganda
god I hate people sometimes
9/10 times it was some unpaid, unskilled volunteer maintainer that glossed over something. New kernel version, forgot to check drive compatibility. Didn't bug-test so and so. Oops, who fucking cares. They can afford to be idiots because it's not a job they can be fired from, you know? If they fail, they'll just point at you and scream "ITS A FREE SYSTEM! WE'RE NOT HERE TO PLEASE YOU, SUBMIT YOUR OWN CODE" before changing every comment to "fart fart fart i love windows".
Nobody cares nigger, this thread entire thread is derp.
This is now a emilie thread.
OP topic was shit anyway
Guys I can deal with the weeb shit, but how old is this girl?
is it just me or has /g/ been a bit off lately? how can it be summer in January
The official list of why Linux sucks.
Did you know that Linux still can't recover from audio/video/etc driver crashes?
>I want to make one thing crystal clear - Windows, in some regards, is even worse than Linux and it's definitely not ready for the desktop either.
>ff the top of my head I want to name the following quite devastating issues with Windows: • devastating Windows rot, • no enforced file system and registry hierarchy (I have yet to find a single serious application which can uninstall itself cleanly and fully), • svchost.exe, • no true safe mode, • no clean state, • the user as a system administrator (thus viruses/malware - most users don't and won't understand UAC warnings), • no good packaging mechanism (MSI is a fragile abomination), • no system wide update mechanism (which includes third party software), • Windows is extremely difficult to debug, • Windows boot problems are often fatal and unsolvable unless you reinstall from scratch, • Windows is hardware dependent (especially when running from UEFI), • Windows updates are terribly unreliable and they also waste disk space, • there's no way to cleanly upgrade your system (there will be thousands of leftovers), etc.
>Outside of graphics, but the OSS radeon works excellent
Radeon is actually better than fglrx, or will soon be. AMD barely provides support for the close source driver, and you cannot build it yourself, forcing you to use outdated versions of Xorg due to ABI incompatibility.
Why is it Linux' fault that Nvidia published a faulty driver? You know, I've had BSODs from graphics drivers countless times on Windows. I don't complain about Windows being faulty when third-party kernel space code misbehaves.
His rant about window managers and desktop environments is fucking retarded. If he wants "direction" and "standardisation" he should just use some KDE or GNOME.
His third point is just his first point reiterated.
>That's why this trash will never be popular on the desktop.
And it's not about the technology, it's about the userbase.
Let's assume that Windows users *had* to go to Mac OS. Mac OS to Linux. And Linux to Windows. Fast forward 10 years. The OS would not have changed the users. The users would have changed the OS to suit their needs. But because we aren't forced to stick to an OS, we can pick what we need. Mac OS for your home studio. Linux for your web server. And Windows for gaming.
So the reason that the Linux use is small is because there's a small number of people that has *need* for Linux.
What the Linux evangelicals who think it's just a matter of time before it will become commonplace is that it will be so by itself. So if they really want it to become commonplace they either have to change it to the user's needs. Or they have to change the users.
The first option is just a waste of their own work. True, I'd love to have an OS that has the advantages of all the three and the disadvantages of none. But I won't lift a finger nor pay a penny to make it possible.
The second would be even harder. The little interest the common user may have in switching to Linux is easlily blown away by the all too common condescending attitude among Linux users.

i had windows completely lock up on my last night when i tried to safely eject a flash drive. entire computer froze
