    why are the only choices

    Windows, spys on you in 20 different ways.

    Linux, breaks whenever you try to do anything and you end up googling for hours to fix it.

    Why isnt there an alternative

      no, YOU break linux whatever you try to do anything.
      and this takes a special kind of skill...

          again. its a you problem.
          i did some funky shit like writing a control script for my gpu fan or frankensteining toegether an opencl installation for a card thats no longer supported and the worst that happenned to me in the past 3 years is that i had to re-install wine.

          i used to frick up my installs much more often, but that was all within 1 year of starting to use loonix.
          just read the tutorials carefully.
          and make sure that when you ctrl c ctrl v stuff into the gui you do it in the right order and you leave nothing out.
          its not black fricking magic

            well, frick you.
            fan curve settings didnt work on windows either.

            but you wanna know about something i dint need to deal with in one system and not the other?
            fricking auto updates that wreck your environment IN STEAD of the settings you select.

            if all you do is play vidya and browse 4keks, go ahead.
            but in my use case windows is just not adequate.
            its not reliable. its not flexible. its opaque.
            it doesnt even work at times.

            I've been trying to figure out how to disable auto login for my admin user so I can lend my laptop to my sister for a while. I made her a user account but the damn thing still auto logs my admin account. All the lives in /etc/gdm3/custom.conf are # and there's no option under system settings > Users or the Startup and Shutdown has the auto login unchecked. Like wtf do I have to do to boot to the login screen so she has to know my/or hers password to get in?

            i have no idea
            it depends on the distro
            on ubuntu and fedora its a pretty straightforward process, its in the gui

            what are you using? (about to get b& btw, dont be surprized i disappear from the thread)

            It was recommended I try Ubuntu since I am new to linux. I'm using Plasma cause it looks like windows but I tried the basic Ubuntu desktop and I might switch to that later. The weirdest thing I change auto login under Startup and Shutdown to user 2 (hers) and it still logs to the admin and changes it to that! I'm frickin baffled.

            yeah... linux things and the joys and pleasures of fragmented development
            even tho plasma might be based on ubuntu, which is based on debian itself, theres no guarantee anything except the kernel works in the same way.
            and lo and behold- plasma seems to have goofed up their gui.

            > it was sufficient to activate it from YaST User and Group Administration with Expert Options Login Settings.

            I guess it is a bit confusing, as the manual specifically mentions GNOME, and it turns out that the switch in Plasma is useless :

            https://forums.opensuse.org/t/auto-login-not-working-in-plasma/145566/2

            it happens.
            loonix is a project where a ton of people who live in all corners of the globe work after hours on stuff that sometimes isnt even their specialization.
            it is to be half expected that smaller distros have at least some jank to them.

            I see thanks. I'll fire up the odefault desktop and try in there.

            [...]
            ubuntu is a PoS. everything went downhill after ubuntu 20 and much sooner depending on who you ask. Dunno if it was gnome also but nothing would work and when you went to find documentation to fix it, it was all outdated despite being couple months old because canonical decided to "reorganise" shit. Even trying to get flatpak into gnome software catalogue despite correctly following the instructions was a mission because canonical wants to push snap which has barely any software. Its even worse on the "flavours" because they had their own dev teams.
            do try fedora/opensuse/linux mint. They're great

            I'll bookmark that and do read up on it when I can. Thanks.

            Yup it's Plasma. I'll submit a bug report I guess. I fixed it by switching to the default desktop and unlocking the users and toggling the switches on both users, then logged out and shut down. Now it boots to the login screen. Weird that even the default user menu had auto login shut off too though. I don't get why it did that. I must have done something when I first started learning that gubbed it up.

            kek
            i switched at the right moment it seems (20.04)
            but for completely unrelated reasons (or were they?)
            i needed to make work a certain amd software suite that was reportedly supported by ubuntu and rhel
            amd's support basically said "we got it to work. we dont know how or why. try throwing kernels at it until something sticks"
            kek. complete dumpsterfire.

            so i switched to fedora and frankensteinied a solution based off a blog i found on the ass end of the internet (rhel scares me with their registration and shit- didnt even finish reading, just noped out of there)

      You're being "spied on" regardless of your OS of choice. Unless you mitigate everything then there is no point using a worse OS. And these days you can't mitigate everything as the final few chains in the link are unknowns.

        airgap + dont give justification to deploy actual means
        its the only working formula.

        everything trust based has been comped or it wouldnt be allowed to exist.
        everything that is vulnerable to decyphering should be considered as such.
        and thats everything that hasnt been encoded with an otp.
        and the whole internet infrastructure is based on trust- between 1st grade networks, and between those and their clients.

      most if not all critical server infrastructure run on linux or a version of it. If they can maintain a 99.99% uptime im sure it can also maintain you watching japanese cardoons. The only time linux has broken for me is when i broke it cause I didnt know as well

      linux is perfect example of keep it simple stupid philosophy as the only reason it breaks is after you introduce too many elements like bloated DEs and systemd shit that doesnt need to exist. if you keep linux minimal, it never gonna break the same way windows does

    Even Linux haters can't stop taking about Linux. Why?, because Windows is so boring nobody cares. It's like toilet paper. Basic, nice to have I guess, but isn't a bidet just so much better?.
