What is the difference between Ubuntu and Linux?

It seems in Ubuntu I have to type a shitload of code just to install things, is Linux like this as well? I never had to do that in Windows.

I mean, Ubuntu is Linux as well, isn't it? What's the difference? Is it basically just a version of Linux?

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.
Do you guys prefer Ubuntu or Linux Mint?

Why did so many people choose the 1060 (6GB and 3GB) over the 480?

I can understand needing more power with the 1070 and above, and I can understand the 1050Ti for the power consumption, but why would anybody go against AMD for the mid range?

-8GB 480 has more VRAM, 4GB version is flat out faster than the 1060 3GB
-Can be crossfired while the 1060 has SLI disabled
-Superior DX12 and Vulkan support with Async compute
-Better drivers
-Freesync over GSYNC tax
-The 480 will age better
-The 480 is cheaper
-It 4GB reference cards can be flashed to 8GB easily, even if not, getting 2000MHz on memory is super easy

I've had two 480s (Red Devil and a Reference 4GB) and I love these cards. They are basically a cooler 290X which has plenty of power to max out games in 1080P.

So you're so shitty at programming that you couldn't become a real programmer, and you're so shitty at digital art that you couldn't do design, so you chose to become something entirely useless and replaceable?

If you guys praise Richard Stallman and love foss and GNU/Linux, then why are you guys promoting Gentoo LINUX? It doesn't even have GNU in the name and is not a recommended distro on the GNU website.
