>The majority of /g/ still uses Windows

Why?

There is no reason to use the Windows operating system in 2016. If your employer is forcing you to use proprietary software, you should seek an alternative or find a new job; they are oppressing your individual freedoms.

>Inferior default filesystem
NTFS is objectively garbage. NTFS relies on an MFT (Along with a copy of it) to store ALL your file metadata for the entire disk, so if these structures get corrupted then your data is top tier fucked. There are more reasons why NTFS is crap, but if that alone isn't enough to deter you from using NTFS, then you're an idiot.

It doesn't matter who plays games.

What matters is that we have a gaming board and it's called /v/.

>>The majority of /g/ still uses Windows

>>Why?

Because it is objectively the best OS in the marketplace, and Linux - while it has made tremendous strides in usability and stability, still doesn't even come close to being a viable option.

>>Inferior default filesystem
>>NTFS is objectively garbage.

NTFS isn't anywhere close to "objectively garbage".

It offers support for large disk sizes, data safety, and acceptable speeds. While EXT4 is theoretically faster, NTFS is well beyond perfectly acceptable.

>>Fisher-Price UI
>>Metro. Enough said.

A UI optimized for touch screens, something OSX does not handle nearly as well as Windows, and Linux barely handles at all.

In any case, the UI is highly customizable, and it's trivial to do so (you know, the exact same sort of things you do to a Linux distro). Windows is perfectly capable of running KDE and GNOME, and some power users do just that.

>>NSA kernel backdoors

Why?

There is no reason to use the GNU/Linux operating system in 2016. If your employer is forcing you to use FOS software, you should seek an alternative or kill yourself; they are oppressing your earning ability and relevancy.

>Inferior default filesystem
EXT4 is objectively garbage. EXT4 relies on largely unsupported protocols to store ALL your data for the entire disk, so if these structures ever need to be read by a real computer, then your data is top tier fucked. There are more reasons why EXT4 is crap, but if that alone isn't enough to deter you from using EXT4, then your an idiot.

It's exactly the same.
You've replaced first party software bundled with the OS with third party software for better functionality, this is exactly what you accomplish by using Classic Shell.

And just for the record, I'm sure the only reason you can think of not to upgrade to 8.1 is the start screen, which actually works exactly the same as the start menu in Windows 7 except that it looks a bit different. Without Classic Shell in Windows 8.1, you have exactly the same workflow as you do in 7.
With Classic Shell, you still have exactly the same workflow, but with more customization options. It's an improvement over 7's start menu, even.

Same deal with this one, though a lot of the stuff can be turned off.

At the end of the day if you're not using Windows because of privacy concerns then you realistically shouldn't use a cellphone, because metadata is recorded by phone companies most of the time, and you shouldn't be using Western Digital HDDs because it's been proven that there's NSA backdoors in the firmware.

People installing stuff from old repos, reading and quoting scripts of lkml, while actually not knowing how it works because linux is plagued with unacceptable documentation (Please don't refer to man pages, I mean the kernel).

In time I'm sure there would be people who can make almighty kernel choose the module they want and establish clergy. Then probably they would catch up with the state of linux when gods abandoned the kernel and the heretics will rise from all over the world. And the cycle will repeat itself.

stick a CD/DVD/BluRay disc in a Debian, SUSE, Red Hat, or Slackware machine. All of them automount the fuckin thing in different directories (if it even automounts them at all... they still have no consensus on that either). Red Hat has changed it's default from /mnt/<media type>, to /media/<media type> to /media/<media name>, to some extra stupid convoluted shit now under RH7.

Debian removed runlevels 3-5 so shit I do EVERYWHERE ELSE didin't fuckin work under Debian.

No, actually, you just have baby duck syndrome and it's the same shit you grew up with.

Errors are vague and unhelpful when you run into problems (which happens frequently), drive installs and even basic software installs are unregulated and difficult. They require you to randomly search the web for help.

No man pages, no package manager, the logging is worse.

You think it's easier to use because it's all you know. As someone who knows both systems very well, GNU/Linux is MUCH easier to use. Seriously.

Unless someone can exemplify any discernible repercussions to being spied on by your OS, assuming you don't have CP i will take notice of such facts.

Here's my Linux wishlist, once all this is accomplished, I'd be happy to use it full time:

-Nvidia pulls their head out of their ass and makes Wayland drivers
-Everyone rewrites their GUIs to not suck horribly, preferably hiring someone who knows what the fuck they are doing and not some coder who thinks the terminal is all you need
-Everything just fucking works
-The system doesn't have a shitfit when you update everything

It's work and a work computer. Except during lunch there is nothing "individual" about what's on the computer. Just work stuff.

And my job is fantastic so I don't care about having a botnet at work. It's a small company and people are used to Windows. Everyone (except the CEO) in the company knows how to run Linux, but we write tons of stuff in Word and need the reference system and citation system there. LaTex is not known to everyone.

This reeks of something written by a person who has never worked a day in his life.
To most employers, you are nothing but an expendable resource. The moment you start yapping about personal freedom to your boss, and demand that he let you use your choice of software, is the moment you'll be thrown on the street.

Linux is nice for low-spec machines like my cheap Chromebook via crouton. It's easy on the battery, boots fast, no bloat, etc.
xfce works well although it's comically ugly compared to Chrome OS, OS X, and Windows 10 even with ricing.

Since Linux doesn't run many games and lacks certain productivity software, I don't see any reason to use it on anything other than lightweight machines, and OS X/Windows on my main machine. Not to mention it's somewhat of a hassle to learn, so I spend more time tweaking shit than getting shit done.

holy shit what the fuck are you doing

>muh proprietarchy
Some people actually need to be productive you know, not waste a whole day looking for some drivers or setting up some feature that should be there from the start. Plus there is a ton of closed source software that there is no decent alternative for on linux, unless you expect big game studios to make games in gimp and blender

>>52934276
>not waste a whole day looking for some drivers
apt-get install nvidia-driver

Holy shit, that was hard. Everything else is already in the kernel.

the only time I've ever had issues with linux drivers is getting WWAN cards to work since they act like serial devices and are wierd

the choice of operating system today is pretty much an irrelevant discussion. just pick what suits your needs the best, and then stfu.

if you really care about privacy, then you should be on the internet at all

>>52927466

Why?

In short - games, CAD software, scientific software like Origin, looks.

Also, I stick to 7.

After trying multiple distros, I have to fully agree with this. Linux is a broken piece of shit.

>>52935384
Intel isn't the only CPU manufaturer.

>>52935501
So because there exists other processor manufacturers, it follows that there is a processor manufacturer that has *not* been touched by the NSA? That's your argument? And then comparing computing to inhaling combustion toxicants..? "snooping" works in my favor because
1) I'm not panderable by target-marketing
2) I do not kiddie porn

What exactly is your goal here, Linux-zealot? Increased privacy requires a massive culture change, not shitposting on an obscure imageboard.

>I've already started fighting the fire at the tip of the flame. Better keep doing that while I'm at it.

That more your language? Your strategy is pants-on-head to say the least of it.

My prebuilt came with windows 8.1. I switched to 10 because /g/ told me 8 got the telemetry update as well, anyway. But then I deleted the files to restore 8, defragged and shrank C:\ as much as windows would let me and installed linux on the free space. 50Gb /, 400Gb /home, and 4Gb swap on a 1Tb drive. And windows can sit there dormant in case I ever absolutely need it.

As an engineer Im bound for life for use of almost exclusively proprietary software. Pretty much any open source solution isnt worth a shit compared to commercial software.

I majorly use Visual Studio for C# development. There is no good alternative to that.

It's because it works.

How do you know that Linux and BSD are free from these backdoors? Do you read all the source? What if the compiller was compromissed in the first place?

Only a few obscure distros (all from China) are LSB certificated.
