>install linux
It's GNU/Linux, and you never stated which GNU/Linux distribution you install. Cool.
>can't share files with windows pc's
Well sure you can, you just never looked into it. You can mount the HDDs fine in most GNU/Linux distributions and you can also use their weird network share thing if you want.
>can't read my phone being connected
Do you have MTP drivers installed? No? That's what I thought.
>have to manually edit text files to change settings
That's the way it should be. And besides, you don't need to manually edit most settings.
If it's that big of a deal, why don't you make your own setting editor?
>breaks file system on my hdd during install and can't access files
Look man, it's not my fault you configured this poorly.

>tl;dr, op blames GNU/Linux for his own mistakes
OP, before you try to use GNU/Linux maybe you should do some reading.

>>43051489
>can't share files with windows pc's
Ironically, Linux can mount NTFS, but Windows can't mount ext*, reiser*, etc.
>>
>>43051489
It's GNU+Linux btw.

>can't share files with windows pc's
Windows' fault for having the shittiest filesystem support.

>can't read my phone being connected
>Hurr, I can't into ownerships and permissions

>have to manually edit text files to change settings
Depends on the program.
Many prefer this over gooey.

>breaks file system on my hdd during install and can't access files
GNU+Linux didn't break your partition table or w/e was fucked.
You did.
Learn to partition shit.

I don't know how winturds can cope with this shit.
You have to be dedicated to struggle and fight with your OS like that
Shit and they have to pay over 100 bucks for it.
Not even macfags are this retarded

>>
>>43052171
I can guarantee I get paid more than you. Wanna know how? By nutsacks like you fucking up your Windows Install. Simple as that. I go in, use the factory restore partition or wipe with Windows Disk, and charge $200 to do it. If you're so dumb you can't recognize the difference between an adware website and the actual software's website, you probably shouldn't be on /g/

Do your research, retard. 'MTP' is the word.

Sweet Jesus, you are a pussy.

Looks like somebody can't into partitioning.
You are an incompetent plebian of questionable sexuality, might as well fuck off and use oh-ess ten or something.

I personally only use Windows on my customers PC's and for muh-gaymes. I'm almost always on my Linux Mint partition. And you can't any version of GNU/Loonicks doesn't have it's faults:

Perhaps Sir would find pic related more to his liking?

>>43052309
>still need drivers for video cards
What? I've been using foss drivers for 2 years now, and almost all distros ship those by default.
>>
>>43051719
Also, Linux supports samba (CIFS), NHS, SSHFS and many other ways of sharing data over networks. Whilst windows almost only supports CIFS.
>>
>>43052419
NHS - > NFS

You need proprietary drivers if you want to play Dota 2 at 300 FPS.
>>
>>43052465
Oh well.
Intel doesn't have proprietary drivers, and for my tower performance in Dota 2 is equally shit with radeon and catalyst drivers.
I don't play games though, so that doesn't matter much.

>>43051489
What happened? Did your parents tell you you're great with computers because you managed to clean a few viruses and install a few drivers? Was it because you successfully built your desktop? Boy oh boy you spoiled children sure are very very smart and talented!
Welcome to the *nix world kid! If you want to have fun and learn setup gentoo and slackware and plan9. If you need to work and don't need to learn (or have already learned) setup ubuntu or debian or fedora or suse.
Oh wait! You're just here to insult it because you don't want to admit that linux is beyond your learning skills! Keepp setting up these threads, i find them amusing!

It's your fault. If you don't know how to use Linux then switch to Windows, faggot.

How is installing a shitty os that doesn't run 90% of the needed software any better?
>>
>>43052589

When you understand the answer to that question, you won't be an amateur
>>
>>43051489
Android phones is a hell. They changed how it work so you need some extra stuff to mount it. But it works.
Else, samba.
>>
>>43052589
Ubuntu runs absolutely everything, i know people with weird ass asian computers that run it perfectly, i know people with super gaming laptops that run it perfectly and i know people that run it on Apple hardware with no issues at all. Maybe YOU are the problem, maybe YOU just suck. Maybe you're trying to run more advanced distros and are expecting to have them be easy as can be. Maybe YOU are retarded.
