>m- muh linux
Why do you guys love Linux so much? I never understand this because Windows is just so much better than Linux.
Why do you love Windows so much? I never understand this because OSX is just so much better than Windows.
I just don't understand why people prefer some weird OS compared to Windows. I can understand 10 but 7?
Linux isn't run by a sand nigger

Linux is run by based linus
Windows 10 is the death of Windows. That, and Linux is for technologically superior people like myself. I'd like to see a gaymer or boomer try & last a day in the haven that is Linux.
Honestly? The main reasons I like it are that it just works and lets me focus on the tasks I'm using my computer for, and that it's not made by Microsoft.
I run Ubuntu LTS btw.
Zero cost is just a bonus.
Linux brings more implementations, like 3D compositing, multiple desktops, and the latest kernels allow you to update system files without restarting, also stuff like kodi and retroarch and all the cool stuff done with raspberry pi.
Nowadays it also has better retrocompatibility because of the way it works, windows 7 is great but since then compability issues have gotten very common
Regarding mac OS, it ditches software in newer OS versions and software updates go through apple which can be inconvenient.
The latter also applies to game consoles and possibly windows 10 in the future so when an patch is out, u have an intermediary that just holds it back from release, which in turn is one of the biggest reasons why so few games have crossplatform

I really do not appreciate the amount of personal data being sent back to Microsoft. Windows 10 is slow, bloated and updates are forced upon you. Restarts are sometimes mandatory and system freezes very frequently. Windows 10 has taken the last shred of freedom from me as a user.
Microsoft is dropping support for older windows and only windows 10 is the future.
Windows is far more vulnerable to malwares than OSX or Linux. It is not free from BSoD or random system crashes either. Updating softwares in windows is very inconvenient unless you turned the automatic updates on for each applications. On that case, applications start multiple instances of update and licence checker which ultimately slows down performance.
Uninstalling softwares leave residue files and people have to use "cleaner apps" like REVO or CCLeaner or IOBit ASC or some other things. I am not talking about config files, I am talking about blank directories, logs, user data and registry values. All those cleaning apps are constantly showing their advertisement in your pc and this is very annoying.
I would use OSX but I don't appreciate Mac's philosophy of "Buy our products only".
GNU/Linux, on the other hand, is much more flexible and gives you an overwhelming array of choices. If GNOME freezes on you you could easily replace it with Cinnamon or Mate.
I admit some of the softwares are not free of glitches but on the other hand I can do my things pretty easily without having to pay loads of cash for them.
Terminal is actually easy to use. I tried going back to windows and had to open edge, search for chrome, download, open and installed chrome only to realise how easy and time saving it would be to use a terminal command for all this.
To be honest it really comes down to what you are doing with your computer.
I guess Linux is just not (yet) for those who do content creation or gaming .
