After tinkering with Linux, I realize Windows has never actually done me wrong.

After tinkering with Linux, I realize Windows has never actually done me wrong. Everything just works fine, and the tinkering I do have to do is really easy and gives the middle finger to Microsoft anyways. Linux is cool and all, I could totally switch. But its just a bit easier to stick with Windows for now. If Microsoft does something stupid, there is usually an easy workaround to make it not suck.

        You can try other solutions but Ameliorated Windows has many options (Playbooks) you can use.

        Most people here use the Windows 10 LTSC IOT Enterprise version which is easy to pirate with permanent activation. It's basically enterprise without store and mandatory updates. It's the version used for screens on buses and stuff like that.

        in Linux at least you can give yourself the time to learn its intricacies and fix anything by yourself.

        Windows is an undocumented (sometimes poorly documented) black box, and when you tinker with it, you don't gain much insight into why things work or don't.

        but in all honesty, if you don't have a software-related job, or the inner workings of computers aren't of your specific interest, there's very little reason to pick up Linux.

        For me the only reason to use linux is to use programs that aren't available for windows. So I can some basic linux to use these programs, but not more than that really. Still I can usually figure out how things work.
        Though I tried installing linux on a ARM Chromebook yesterday and couldn't get it to work, and in the end I just gave up. I figured installing linux programs in chromeos like they want me to do is good enough. I might try again later though, but my patience is wearing thin when stuff just don't work and the guides just don't work.

            the only recommended by crouton, can't remember the name
            basically I managed to install developer mode and install crouton, but for some reason it stopped there because the file system was read only or something. apparently I might need custom firmware to fix it, and I'm not sure if I'm risking that bricking it
            it works fine just enabling linux features in chromeos and opening the linux programs that way, though of course I'd prefer a clean linux install

        I haven't tried this one but I'd say the default Playbook in AW is more aggressive and less interactive in what it does (e.g.: the start menu is replaced with Open-Shell).
        Gonna try it the next time I format my PC.

      I do agree, with my time using Linux I've gained a lot of insight on how it works. But do I want to learn how something I don't care about works? Or just have something that works? I'm a Racecar Johnny, I want to work.

      windows and the win32 API has much better documentation, tutorials and forum responses from 200 years ago that still work, in contrast to the poor man pages, the mediocre arch wiki and the stack overflow answer from 2 weeks ago that doesn't work anymore because the system updated or is not for the distro you use

        shit still works, minimal changes happen to linux software. i can pick up a fricking unix book from the 90s and use the same commands to do the same shit. try to do that with windows (actually try i would like to hear how it goes.)

          this has to be bait.
          loonix and all of its moving parts introduce breaking changes all the time, and on top of that, most distros like to configure things differently and put important files in different places all the time.
          find an answer on how to make GUI applications themes work under kde? there's one for every different gtk major version. how to enable/tweak a specific feature of a drawing tablet? there's an answer for using the xf86-wacom driver under xorg but not for libinput. how can I force disable vsync? only under xorg, not wayland. ibus keyboard layout for my language is moronic? find an answer saying I just need to modify the file named cedilla something and it works... but it's nowhere to be found. and ibus also doesn't work under kde wayland for some reason. how to tweak a specific setting for my sound card? sure here's a guide on how to do it for pulseaudio, even though no one uses it anymore.

            Just a few minutes ago I downloaded Kubuntu "LTS" and I fumed over the fact that for these wankers "Long term" means 3 fricking years. My kid will still be in kindergarten while this piece of shit will become obsolete.

            kubuntu is based off of ubuntu, ubuntu's lts support is 5 years, with a "UBUNTU PRO SUBSCRIPTION" you get 10 years of support.
            even then calling it obsolete is moronic and shows that this is bait, or your well moronic

    if it weren't for alternatives like Linux and BSD existing, your Windows box would already be locked down to the point that you couldn't even post on IQfy or look at anything that might contain wrongthink. Nevermind running software that circumvents things like HDCP and other forms of Digital Restriction Management.

    I switched to Linux 20 years ago because Windows XP's activation BS was enough to make me realize that Windows is designed to be used as a digital prison.
    >b- but you can circumvent registration
    again, MS deliberately doesn't make piracy too hard because they prefer for people to pirate Windows instead of switching to Linux.

    Using Windows means giving Microsoft money, either directly by paying licensing fees or indirectly by helping them retain marketshare. Through this, you financially support their advocacy for mass-immigration and transgenderism.

    Every additional Linux desktop out there is a motivation for hardware vendors to make proper Linux drivers and to sell machines that come with Linux pre-installed.

      Delusional. Linux is ran by RedHat who hates white peepo even more than MS does, and practically every linux distro is pajeet ran.

        Linux could do just fine without RedHat/IBM. In fact we'd probably be better off in the long run, since Gnome is cancer.

        If RedHat ever try to use their contributions to Gayland to display castration flags on my screen against my will, I can just take out/disable the code. That's nearly impossible to do on Windows.

        Arch and Gentoo are largely apolitical. System76 (Pop!_OS and Cosmic Desktop) is run by patriotic Americans who do as much manufacturing as possible in the US.

          Black person RedHat/IBM literally practically solo decide what happens to and control Fedora, GNOME, PipeWire, Systemd, BTRFS, Flatpak, Freedesktop, Wayland. Essentially everything that matters in linux and has any sort of relevance is solely decided by them.

            other than the Freedesktop guidelines, there are distros that make do without one or even all of what you mentioned.

    I've only used riced education and enterprise versions of Windows for so long that sometimes I forget that consumer Windows has essentially been malware since Win8. Seeing some normalgay with Win11 home at a coffee shop get blasted by ads through the operating system honestly terrifies me

    This is partially true, however personally I prefer having my system respect me by default rather than having to work around bs it gives me. Linux support is better and better everywhere and the more people use it the better it will get, so I choose to be a part of the solution to the Microsoft problem ahead of the curve of the inevitable global switch to Linux years, potentially decades, down the line
