GNU/LINUX is like a Nissan Silvia - it's okay if you have the time to waste on modding it and learning in the intricacies of a car's engine. It's what you buy if you want cars to be your hobby - what you spend most of your time doing.

Windows is like a BMW. It is an all round higher quality car and it's more likely to get you from A to B without breaking down. And just feels nicer to use in general. You don't need to know anything about how the car works you just use to help you do what a car is meant to do.

You've got part of it wrong. The quality isn't overall higher on Windows. The time you spend on the system is ultimately in return for higher quality software. The reason Linux is used in Hollywood 3D graphics rendering, servers, space stations, and many engineering and science applications is that it is reliable. Because it is free to change dramatically, it has sane features like filesystems that aren't straight out of the 90s, and a great number of them at that, and the ability to automatically install/upgrade/uninstall programs, even things with complex install procedures. Even the user interface, with enough time spent on it, is better for individual users than any other less customizable system.

You're showing your ignorance.
You may not have found it reliable for your needs, but the fact remains that it can run for years uninterrupted. You can't laugh away all the servers running it.

Replace GNU/LINUX with Arch or Gentoo, and Windows with Ubuntu or similar.

>linux has no creature comforts

GNU+Linux Mint is practically the same as Windows. The only difference is that you don't have to restart to update, updates aren't forced down your throat, and you don't have to pay M$ a licensing fee.

As for reliability, there is a reason the GNU+Linux is used in servers.
>>
>>52966744
Implying companies aren't forced to hire sysadmins and tons of people to constantly make sure they fix it when it does inevitably fucks up of course windows isn't a server is, but Linux is not much more reliable. It's just lighter weight.
>>
>>52966744
Be careful, using logic often has no effect on some of the people here. Especially those with buyer's remorse.
>>
>>52966718
Do they run those servers for fun then? Have giant corporations picked their server OS on a whim and have failed to replace it even though it's unreliable? Please explain it to me, since you know so much about it.
>>
>>52966767
Why don't they just change their OS?
Where are you getting these conceptions? Have you been in a server room before? I ask, because I have, and I'm wondering if my experiences apply to everywhere or if Linux was only reliable in their case. I'm open to change.
>>
>>52965113
You got it all wrong OP. You're computer is like a car. Replacing windows with linux is like pulling out the tired, wheezy old 4 cylinder that was original equipment, and replacing it with a shiny new supercharged big ass V8.

I don't give a shit about ricing or freedom or compiling my own kernel or any of that nerd shit. I use linux because it's way easier to get machine learning libraries working than on other OS.

>>
>>52966767

I don't understand your arguments about reliability. I've been running GNU/Linux for years without issue.

Your arguments might have had a leg to stand a decade ago, but GNU/Linux is simply a much better user experience from install to major configuration. The only reason the Windows holds a majority market share in personal computers is licensing agreements with OEMs and inertia by consumers.
>>
>>52965113
What the fuck? This would make sense if you could get a car for free, or if intellectual property were anything like real physical goods. In other words your analogy doesn't make sense at all.

Except it isn't, Hollywood uses it because renderfarms are faster and easier to setup and remotely pull data from respectively.

Workstations are almost exclusively Windows or OSX, with a dualboot or VM for any custom inhouse software.

Desktop share is somewhere between 1.75% and 2% currently.

This will probably trigger you, but I work at a place that puts Linux on every desktop machine we ship. And business has literally never been better.

The sudden increase in our business is almost entirely due to Windows' privacy fails.

Linux: Honda Civic from the 90's, you can mod the shit outta that thing but still ugly and tasteless no matter what you do.

Window: the Ford of Os, gets you from A to B, sometimes with no worries sometimes is a pain in the ass

OSX: is like Cadillac, rebranded and overpriced of regular shit
