There is no end user advantage to install Linux. It's crapware for nerds who don't use their computers for work, enjoyment or gaming. It looks like a toy for 1337 nerds to pretend they're doing something deep when it's a bunch of nonsense. Unless they're doing some weird security breaching to spy on other peoples porn collection.

Give me any a good non-nerd reason that linux can put do work that windows doesn't, and why the average person should care. There's a reason that universities and business doesn't use linux.

If linux is great, then what can it do that windows doesn't and how is it better than being a waste of time?

I know a person who has a Linux. Seriously those things are just nerd toys for edgy tech fags who can't use windows

Im serious, linux feels autistic as fuck. What does it do other than what windows is already doing that's faster and easier for the end user?

how does Linux or BSD benefit the computer end user who doesn't care about deep data crunching on shit 99% of people will never need to use.
>>
All Linux really is good for is for "Resume Achievements".
The more achievements you have the more you may appear to be valid to a tech related employer.

Outside that it's just for ricefags and autists.

I don't use linux but from what I've heard:

>faster on older hardware

inb4 falling for bait

You had me until here
>>
>>51534025
Have you ever seen someone build a house with just a hammer? I think you're being slightly obtuse, and can do better. Universities and Businesses use Linux as well as Windows and OSX. You use the right tool for the job.

Ha! I agree! I'm just saying its doable.

>>51534025
this is bait, but let's see what happens

>There is no end user advantage to install Linux.
Sure there is, once you install Linux you can use your computer to do all kinds of things.

>It's crapware for nerds who don't use their computers for work, enjoyment or gaming.
I use it for all three daily.

>It looks like a toy for 1337 nerds to pretend they're doing something deep when it's a bunch of nonsense.
That's just your perception because you don't understand, but I don't consider anything I use Linux for to be particularly deep, meaningful, or significant in any real way. It is all virtual, after all.

>Unless they're doing some weird security breaching to spy on other peoples porn collection.
I'm not sure any one actually does this.

>Give me any a good non-nerd reason that linux can put do work that windows doesn't, and why the average person should care.
You can browse facebook and youtube all day with significantly better performance and reliability.

>There's a reason that universities and business doesn't use linux.
But that's wrong, you retard.

>If linux is great, then what can it do that windows doesn't
It can manage not to fill up the disk it's installed on by itself, and not BSOD or send telemetry data to Microsoft 24/7.

>and how is it better than being a waste of time?
this doesn't make sense

2/10 bait, didn't even rage
>>
>>51534091
It can be really lightweight and perform significantly faster on older hardware and perform basic task, say, office-suite and web browsing

Windows really is just a standard and that's the reason average person isn't going to switch to linux. Businesses don't really know about linux, and no wonder, *every* computer comes with windows preinstalled.

Googler here, I can confirm this.

Most of us are on goobuntu- a modified version of ubuntu. Some of us are on arch too. Most are on goobuntu though.
>>
>>51534925
(the arch installs are slightly modified too)

Huh. Googled it. Goobuntu is real.

>There's a reason that universities and business doesn't use linux.

they do though most of the back end stuff is done on linux machines

they don't on the work stations its because no one is used to it (except point of sale and other terminal are almost exclusively linux based)

Then don't.

I stopped reading after that. I know you just want attention. So here it is. :)
>>
>Windows

Normies use iOS/Android, creative people use OS X, technical people use Linux. What is the point of Windows these days? Does anyone use it anymore except for office drones and gamer kiddies? It's basically the AOL of operating systems.

>>51534025
I installed linux to run a hypervisor at my parent's house. One VM serves files, the other VM steals/borrows TV and streams it with tvheadend. Windows might be able to do these things but it would cost me a lot more and it wouldn't do these things particularly better.

I mean, I know troll thread. Maybe that's nerd shit. I'm ok with nerd shit. Nerd shit is just a phrase tech illiterate people use to describe what enables everything they do yet don't understand.
>>
>>51535151
My bad--executives and other important people use it too.

OS X: used by the people who run the world, and change the world.
Linux: used by people who keep the world running.
Windows: used by people who spend their days writing TPS reports and their nights playing video games to escape their pointless lives.
