          what's the point of telling her it's windows then?

        My mother thought KDE was windows. She has no issues using it.

        90% just has an OS as a browser bootloader.

            The same way she lied to me - without a hint of guilt, and a smile.

      I always find these kinds of posts from kids on reddit and facebook who think they know better very sad.
      They offen complain that Linux still has that oldschool feel and everything hasn't changed to mobile/touch buttons, but then they go and force it on some poor old lady who is trusting their kid to help instead of lying to their face and then come and brag about tricking some elderly into using Linux.

        There's no problem anon. They finally found a user for which Linux is suitable for. Somebody so dumb and so useless that they would never need to or even know how to open up a console and autistically type shit in like a neanderthal. Somebody who will never have any need other than faceberg and email.
        The use case for Linux is for the profoundly stupid and simple.
        It's perfect.

    I learned Windows by peeking over my mom's shoulder as she stumbled through Windows. I doubt I would have learned anything if she had mashed shit into the terminal.

      When you poke around and realize that this is the case, they will begin defending themselves by claiming that the only real way to do things is how they've always done it. It's absurd. Typing yt-dlp and pasting an URL is beyond the majority of computer users today.

      My mom used DOS in the office and could get around easily. Now she can't handle the downgrade from W7 to W10. If anything, seeing normalgays do it makes it appear doable, instead of giving up as soon as a command prompt appears.

      The dumbest secretary of the 90s was able to manage files through the DOS prompt. If you're dumber than a woman you should have a nice day.

    Its not that linux is hard to learn, rather there is nothing to learn. Linux does not have a gui.

    That's right. Nobody has ever used Windows, because it is too difficult.

    I figured out basic functions and configuration on windows 3 when I was like 10. I learned it on my own by using it, looking around, reading the options available to get what I was trying to do done. Help files were nice but I didn't need to study a fricking book! Those fricking manuals were THICK too.

    People dislike(not think it's to hard- decide it isn't worth learning) desktop linux because parts of your user experience are behind an OS from 1990!

      GUI based interactions are objectively easier to work with for beginners. Remembering symbols and interactions in a visual way is much easier to learn than entering text into a black box and hoping what you tried doing actually happened.

      rm -rf [file] doesn't give you feedback without typing ls, whereas pressing delete and seeing the file disappear is a clear indication of what happened without extra steps.

      If you've worked with people using tech, from absolute beginners to "I use PCs for work, but nothing else" to autistic spergs like the average IQfy user, you build up an understanding of how people process using tech.

      You clearly haven't.

      You don't have to use the terminal. This isn't the 1990's anymore.
      Install KDE distro, no need to ever touch terminal.

      Modern windows is more intuitive to use than Linux and it will automate most tasks for you by default.
      People were also way more tech savvy back in the day since operating systems required basic troubleshooting knowledge.
      Even if you gave laptops with Linux to small kids, most games and programs have a lot more tutorials for Windows than Linux. You'd basiclly require the whole thing to be switched over, but the reality is that people just don't like to use Linux, doesn't matter how hard or easy it might be, same reason they don't use more Macs

      >Start menu
      >Type file or software to find
      >"Here are bing results"
      My mother uses linux and she hasn't touched a computer for years. She never had issues she even turns on and off VPN.

      Try MacOS. It objectively has the best designed UI. If you have issues with that then it isn't that windows is intuitive, it's that you just got used to it.
