Linux Mint

It just works.
The only thing you have to do is install a real web browser because it comes with firefox (the good browser 15 years ago)
It comes with great software you want, like the USB image creator.
It comes with Cinnamon, the premier Linux Desktop Environment that is developed in house
It is based on Ubuntu, the former best distro
but it is redpilled on Isreal.
It is by far the best distribution of Linux
You're more than welcome to prefer Arch (pacman sucks) but the truth is
for 99.9999 percent of humans, Linux Mint is the best option for your computer.
Because it works.
and because it's the best.
and it has been the best for at least 9 years.
also, apt > pacman it's no contest

    Cinnamon isn't good enough. No KDE no use.

      Not having a kde spin really hurts it with Valve pumping money in it. Xfce and Cinnamon are ok. Also I like the faster packages of FEDora and prefer dnf.

      u know u can install kde, right?

      why is it that when I try to use KDE with dark mode 50% of the applications still open in light mode.

        I've encountered more issues on Cinnamon than on KDE.
        Example? Open Nemo on a directory, then save a video to that directory. The thumbnail will not generate until you manaually reload thumbnails on the directory.

          i will try to duplicate this, but I have never encountered this issue.
          to me, KDE which I have used extensively is overly complicated and unintuitive.
          I frequently download videos (bukkake and gokkun, i like watching asian women recieving semen) with cinnamon and have never encountered the error you are talking about

            Pretty sure it happens because the partially downloaded file appears and the thumbnail fails to generate, and unlike on KDE it doesn't auto reload once it finishes. If the video saves too quick it might not happen.
            Hopefully it's just me.

    I'm trying to put linux mint on an ISO 8gb usb stick but I can't have Rufus do the FAT32 shit. All I get is NTFS. REddit is a bunch of wanking gays about it and throw weird shit at me expecting I understand wtf they are saying.

    How to FAT32 the drive with Linux Mint so I can put it on a laptop and see if Linux is for me or not?

    I don't know what FAT32, NTFS and SHIT88 is btw. I'm just copying a Yootoober.

      Use a VM instead. No need for immediate bare metal installs and VMs let you use your fast PC instead of some leftover.

      >I don't know what FAT32, NTFS and SHIT88 is btw. I'm just copying a Yootoober.

      You don't need Linux. Ignore evangelists, they're young therefore stupid. Until you're completely proficient on Windows there is no point adding another OS you'll take years to learn. People forget how many thousands of hours it really takes with any OS to get good.

    It's literally a bloated, outdated derivative of Ubuntu LTS that has been compromised by malware in the past due to their poor security practices. Anyone who recommends this is either a glowie or a paid shill.

    Cinnamon is broken and fricks my cursor up when there's VRR
    Firefox is better than blurrium based anything
    It comes with bloat I don't need
    Being based on ubuntu is definitely not a good thing (in fact the only good thing they do is replace snaps)
    They're not redpilled, they're pro palestine
    It's a very average distro for people who don't know how to use linux
    Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages btw

    I had zero interest in Mint and after finding out that its average user is a Windows 7 baby duck boomer, I look down on it.
    Linux distros getting Windows boomers to convert by imitating Windows has been a terrible mistake.

    Everything “just works”l I don't get this dumb meme phrase. Is the selling point that it actually boots and doesn't crashes something to mention?
    I don't get why people come with this as a reason to use something. It's a very big problem if it doesn't “just work”.

    A bike “just works”, so does a skateboard, but I use the latter for urban transport because I can more easily take it into stores when I go shopping or take it on a tram or train more easily, that's my justification, not that it “just works”; everything one can find in any store “just works” in general. It'd be a faulty product otherwise.

      No, things used to just work. You buy a casio calculator, you press button, receive number. Fricking works.
      You get a laptop nowadays and it comes with plenty of fricking bloatware and spyware, it's more noisy than it needs to and that nice screen you got it for is going to get burn in at some point. And the software is all fricked up and works the way it wants no matter which OS you're using, because that's how software works these days.

        Yeah okay so your argument is that it doesn't have bloatware and spyware on it.
        What free software Unix system does? With some of the telemetry options in mint it probably comes closer to it than most systems.

          I'm not OP, Mint does have bloatware, and is definitely, like you said, closer to have spyware than other distros.
          I'm just pointing out that these days you don't really expect shit to just work. It'd have to be too simplistic. Even basic home appliances have these fricking issues because they now have to make them smart and give them firmware updates.

      "just works" usually means "fits like a glove, didn't need to tweak settings".
      but on this 3% desktop market share environment where testers and devs are lacking, occasionally people consider "not crashing" to be abonus, especially on new, non-LTS releases.

        That's super personal and cosmic coincidence then.

      If you don't know what "just works" means you are autistic as frick or have never used Linux. It means that the program/tool/device works straight away without needing any configuration or tweaking.

      Linux Mint, Debian and Ubuntu are "just works" distros. Hard to go wrong with them even if you're a beginner user. Gentoo is the opposite of a "just works" distro, stuff like Wi-Fi, bluetooth and sound servers have to be configured manually.

      Not boot but its pretty rare to see a linux distro where everything, every setting and feature work right out of the box.

    I'm using it right now as someone who's recently trying to switch to Linux from Windows 10, I tried out Ubuntu before this.
    It's..okay so far, my biggest problem was trying to get the taskbar to behave like it does on Windows when using dual monitors. I have had the taskbar be glitchy and unresponsive a couple of times. It would also randomly switch workspaces when I moved my mouse in a certain way.
    I didn't really have much of a problem with GNOME despite how many people hate on it.
    It doesn't take long to remove snaps, and compared to the configuration that some other distros seem to need, it's not a big hassle.
    I'm probably just gonna reinstall Ubuntu and stick with that
    >inb4 W11
    Used it for the first time on my work machine, and it's genuinely more of a toy OS than Mac at this point. I have more respect for macgays than people who think W11 is good.

      I don't think there's any point using Ubuntu in 2024, you are better off simply using Debian and installing whatever you need. People talk about how Ubuntu has a graphical installer for Nvidia drivers like it's a big deal, but installing Nvidia drivers in Debian is as simple as editing your sources file and then installing the Nvidia drivers package with apt.

      Cinnamon is quite a buggy operating system, and I'm saying this as someone who used it for the past year. GNOME receives a lot of hate but in my experience it's the most polished and bug free of all desktop environments, but you need a few extensions to make it usable.

      For the best Linux experience, stop trying to make it like Windows and just accept that it's something else. Learn to use Linux the way it's meant to be used. You will get used to it eventually.

    Linux Mint's true strength comes from its homemade tools and apps. Pic related, the sources manager and the software center are cash as frick.
