You betcha' 25 year veteran embedded systems developer and IT pro here. If it works for you, enjoy it. I do.

I want to solve new problems with my PCs, not old ones - so I use Mint. My wife does, too.

The only thing she really noticed coming from Doze was, "where'd the C: drive go?"

She's a teacher and uses Mint professionally every day. All her apps are cross-platform to work with Macs @ school, anyway.

>loathe every update and wish you could just avoid them

>updates are good, but you have to pay for most of them

>free updates, but ends up forcing you to buy a new device or you roll back the update to the previous version

>free, plentiful, convenient updates

>nobody updates for some reason

Anyone notice the differences in "update culture" of various operating systems?

Updating Windows 7:
>doesn't finish updating even when left overnight
>have to manually download each update

Updating Windows 10:
>takes 20-30 minutes, download occasionally hangs

Updating Linux:
>takes 5-10 minutes to download and install, even if it's a 500+ MB update

What's the deal?

The difference is what attitude the user has.

In windows you don't have to cook, but you have no idea what they put into your food.

>download takes 20+ minutes and and install takes another 20+ minutes and have to restart to finish installing

Can anyone explain to me why? How long do OS X updates take to download and install?

For people just switching from Windows, very pretty and excellent first experience.
For those who want an even prettier and more configurable desktop.
If you want to go more minimalistic or install Linux into an old computer.

--Not recommended for beginners down this--

>Arch Linux
If you want to learn more about Linux and want to configure to be like everything you want it to be, it has the best wiki to go from intermediate user to pro.
>PupNGo Linux
If you want a minimalistic distro or for really (REALLY) old computers with but with an impressive set of software.
>Linux From Scratch
Only for experienced users who knows how to compile programs (NOT FOR NOOBS), this will make you a wizard (and hirable for many jobs).

Special mention: Gentoo. Very good for configuration or for learning purposes, but you would either want to use Arch or LFS for either of those reasons.

I want Winux.

I love Linux, it's Open Source and I can dig into my shit. I can easily setup compile environments and even theme most of the stuff. But I also want Windows, because I have quite a bunch of games on Steam and most of them won't run on Linux.

Is GamingOnLinux/Wine a decent alternative? Would I be able to maintain my stuff if I moved? How? Did you guys did it?

Btw I'd pick Arch
> inb4 meme distro
I really like Arch. Never left me or gave me huge issues / issues I couldn't solve
