Linux works if you treat your operating system as a hobby unto itself and a thing to interact with.

Linux works if you treat your operating system as a hobby unto itself and a thing to interact with. Windows and Mac more so fades into the background and is just for letting you do what you want in a stable reliable environment. Which is not to say Linux can't be stable or reliable, but it on desktop generally tends to be less so than the other major operating systems form my experience.

Beyond that, Linux sucks when it comes to security and the only reason you don't hear more about that is because very few people choose to attack people running desktop linux. Once we move to immutable, I hope this will become less of a thing as programs are more containerized and stuff, but I don't get the specifics of how it works. If Linux expands in popularity on the desktop in our lifespans, it naturally will probably need some more antiviruses besides ClamAV to do the job and to protect it, even if people mostly just use package managers to install software rather than getting stuff off of the web browser downloads.

    >windows fades into background
    >linux gets in your way
    Skill issue and also LMAO, it's the other way around.

    Windows bombards you with notifications and stuff like "oh would you like to use edge instead of Firefox?"
    "Oh, look, I made a scan and found nothing."
    The automatic updates force restart your computer sometimes.
    The hard drive can't stop being active.
    The filesystem sucks.
    It has advertisement in the fricking start menu.
    Forces you to use your cloud account. Forces you to synchronize your files with the cloud. Literally spies on you everywhere you can. Literally interrupts your workflow everywhere it can.
    Is laggy as frick compared to linux.
    Gaymes run worse on windows 11 than on ANY other OS.
    Windows search is a laughing stock of the universe with its pytjon-like speeds.

    Ever since I switched to debian Linux with KDE plasma, ever since the version 3.5, I did not encounter similar problems. I have a peaceful day, get my shit done, Linux doesn't get in my way.
    I customized the desktop to my likings. I customize the looks, the automation, the scripts. And ever since I set it up like this, it just works for decades without getting in my fricking way after upgrading my system.

        Just because something exists doesn't mean it works.

      First point, you can disable notifications quite easily
      Second Windows hasn't restarted itself automatically by default since 2017, by that time 10 was unusable
      Third you can change that behavior in the power settings,
      Fourth, the filesystem could be better, but you won't explain how it sucks,
      Fifth those don't come by default with some editions of windows
      Sixth I use it without an online account, and so can you, skill issue. Seventh it's barely laggier than using Plasma, eighth games are running the same for me on both 10 and 11, and windows search at least works in the file picker. Which on Plasma isn't a thing at all.

        Linux is fun to configure and customize and have interesting features while Windows gets out of the way to let you do what you need to do.
        Mac is somewhere in between I believe.

    No, they don't. They're constantly up in your face with gay shit, telemetry, forced updates, ads, garbage UI, and less and less control over everything... to name just a few

    windows and macos will have you magically needing to bay money for some bullshit out of nowhere once a year, randomly be completely unusable once a year, rearrange the interface with no usability improvments, and then after long enough you just dont get updates and hopefully you didn't leave that computer plugged in with any financial data

    Linux is not usable for any purpose even a hobby. It would take more than an entire lifetime to unfrick it.

    It's actually the other way around. Windows is constantly getting in my way and preventing me from using my computer. Any simple task becomes arduous on Windows.
