tl;dr: If I want to hardcore get in to programming, will I care if I stick with windows 10?

Maybe you should address and figure out why these things don't work with linux, and then fix them. It would be educational

and no, you shouldn't get hardcore into programming since you will be competing with minimum wage indian workers that are better than you if you are balking at fixing slight issues in linux

you don't have the mental capacity to "hardcore get in to programming" if you can't even figure out ubuntu. you can become a shitty hipster web dev or scripter that just copy-pastes stackoverflow answers though.

if you 'accidentally' remove windows from your computer (like seriously how do you even manage that), have to order a whole new laptop, can't figure out how to use ubuntu, can't figure out how to install ruby on ubuntu, can't figure out how to copy-paste stuff into the terminal, can't figure out how to use the terminal etc WHY THE FUCK DO YOU WANT TO GET INTO PROGRAMMING IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE LITERALLY NO COMPUTER KNOWLEDGE WHATSOEVER

I'm being trolled. Of course I know how to get ruby etc but it just wasn't werking for incomprehensible reasons.

There was that image of the email exchange with bill gates failing in his attempt to install and use windows software. He's not low IQ and neither am I. We just get frustrated by bullshit that stands between us and the big important challenges. Us high IQers don't pat ourselves on the back after spending ten days ricing a district while compiling it from source and getting the taskbar width to pixel level accuracy

Yeah, this happens to a lot of people. I know other fat retards will make you feel guilty but just so you know, if you're using 15.04 you will be prompted to install 15.10. Well, make sure you're not using the proprietary AMD drivers because that shit will fuck your Ubuntu and make it lock on the boot screen.
But yeah, there are retards that will defend Linux no matter what.
Install Antergos or Manjaro, retards here say those distros are useless because "dei dunt tiich u anydin", fuck them. No one cares about " learning" how to install an OS.

If you can't figure out IT / SYS admin level black box bullshit then you definitely shouldn't be a programmer.
Just admit your incompetence and go back to Windows.
>>
>>51461816

if you already struggle with simple linux stuff, getting "hardcore" into programming might not be your thing. Problem solving is an important part of programming.

If you really had a high IQ you wouldn't have any problem figuring out Linux.
I have average IQ and i don't have a problem with Linux, any issue I've come across I've been able to fix.

If you aren't willing to at least find out why these small problems are appearing in your OS, then you shouldn't be a programmer. Stick with Windows because your to autistic to use Linux
>>
I'm curious now, what exactly are you expecting programming to be like op? are you expecting to write out plain text instructions that some compiler is gonna magically interpet into a program or what?
>>
>>51461816
Ignore the motherfuckers in this thread. The problem isn't that you don't understand Linux or are incapable of figuring it out, it's that you're wasting time on that worthless freetard OS instead of learning to code. Learning to fix a broken mess of a shitty operating system that should be working in the first place doesn't give you skills that are applicable to programming.

Contrary to circlejerk belief, Windows is the most popular operating system for programming. Just get hold of Visual Studio or some shit and start learning.

Cant get Ubuntu to work...holy shit, Ubuntu installs itself. It literally involves turning on your computer, inserting a CD, and typing in your name. My five-year-old daughter has done it.

That's like fucking up a cup of coffee, how is it even possible?

Fuck OP's shit thread, I'm gonna /blog/ a bit.
I was watching an episode of King of the Hill where Dale becomes an HR agent, and I think he gets a filing cabinet at the end, and my brother was like, "I bet that cabinet is big enough for OVER NINETHOUSAND cigarettes."
I pretended like I was unfamiliar with the meme, and just was like "Probably more like nine hundred. I dunno."
I'm very disappointed. How do I stop my brother from spewing five-year old memes?

What's wrong with C on Windows? I'm a Debian+i3 fag myself so I'm not shilling or anything. Just curious.
>>
>>51465222

You either have to use something like MinGW to get an environment and compiler that works (might as well just use Linux and not have to deal with bullshit) or suffer through .NET, which doesn't let you run the compiler directly. You either have to use visual studio or run the specific "visual studio command prompt" which lets you run the compilers.
>>
>>51465266

whats wrong with using VS command prompt, it was configured for you and just werks
>>
>>51461816

the wifi didn't work because you didnt have the fucking wifi files/drivers to install when installing your linux distro
i went through the same shit

its kinda a bitch to set up but once you get it all done linux is great

if you ever plan on programming with VS or C# or ASP.NET or any other MS stuff, then just fucking stick with windows

it doesnt fucking matter

just start fucking programming, asshole

>stuff that never happened
Ubuntu not supporting hardware? Dont make me laugh, i have NEVER seen Ubuntu not supporting any hardware right out of the box (except shit like GPUs which you cant expect it to). If you're using Ubuntu there's no way in hell it doesn't support your laptop's WiFi card. Or maybe you use a laptop from Xing Xong
>>
>>51465389
This
Its highly unlikely for Ubuntu not to support hardware right out of the box.
Are you sure OP you're not using some obscure wifi card?

Tons of hardware not supported by Linux or not fully supported.

For example linksys ae2500 wireless dongle, extremely popular but lacks a non-windows driver.

The fault is on the companies that don't supply a driver ofcourse.

This is pretty shitty b8.
1.Why would you buy another laptop instead of just reinstalling an OS?

2. Linux Mint and Ubuntu literally have the one of best driver support of any Linux distro, so wifi problems rarely arise

3. Even if there were problems, why the fuck weren't you on the forums (you clearly had acces to the internet at the time cause you were trolling /g/)? Ubuntu has the best forums out of all Linux distros, there should have benn an answer or at least a similar situation there.

Honestly, programming is to complicated for you, but if you want to do it on windows, look at the MinGW suite and Cygwin (basically Linux on Windows). You're gonna fail but it's worth a shot.
>>
>>51465625
the fault is on you for
a) trying to use a wireless dongle (literally no reason)
b) buying a wireless dongle that doesn't support linux

Hey Kiddo. Stop crying and get a MAC. Try using linux when you grow up.
