I'm about to wipe Win10 partition, reformat and install UBUNTU. I have never done it before and have no idea if all of the drivers are available and will work.

In case I don't make it back, so long /g/! TO VALHALLA!

Cool story faggot. You will be on your knees back in two days begging windows to take you back.

I went this route many times, tried nearly all distros only to discover they are exactly the same shit in a different packaging.

You castrate your PC from quality proprietary drivers, games, and useful software that a person needs time to time. In the end you do the switch, ricing and all the shenanigans, waste so much of your time, then sit there look at it and try to impress other people by telling them how great it is. No one pays any attention to your riced up turd and eventually you lose interest and come back to Windows.

Few weeks later, some asshole posts a riced up desktop and you get triggered.

The cycle repeats itself till you die.

>> No.49826357

Break the cycle by using linux with windows in a vm with vga passthrough for native GPU performance for vidya/creative suit. It's the best PC experience out there right now.

BROTHERS, I have made it! Ubuntu installer is done. I've managed to figure out Wifi driver and audio driver issues that I've had (they were minor issues). Wifi now works and I can connect to my AP. mpv also works fine and can play all of my animu vids. I've also managed to connect my NTFS external disks.

I'm running Firefox and I'm currently restring all of my backed up documents.


Hope Ubuntu's VALHALLA for me!!!

>Muh manchild gaymes and muh "quality" proprietary crapware

Anon plz, unlike you not everybody thinks that a computer main appeal is running stupid child games and making dank memes in pirated Photoshop with two or three Russian Trojans included.

If I had children or little cousins/siblings then maybe there might be a need to have a Windows partition so they can play their stupid games.

But Linux is so superior and powerful that using anything worse is just a pain in the ass.

You can rice your desktop in windows too, Linux main appeal is not ricing, and I in fact just have vanilla KDE with some color scheme and a theme. If you waste hours ricing your system is not because Linux force you is because you want to.

that is not really true. GNU/Linux is good if you demand freedom. If you demand freedom is it the best choice.

You should think about what you want to use your computer for, then decide whether this activity has a bigger value for you than your freedom. For me personally, it doesn't, so I'm running GNU/Linux.

It has nothing to do with fashion.

>> No.49835980

That's not really disapproving the post you linked. You both agree that you should weight pros and cons and use what best suits your needs. If games is more important to him than actual freedom, then there's no reason to use GNU/Linux. Freedom is also about the freedom to choose, even if your choice sacrifices some of it for convenience.

Have you personally checked the inside out of your distro are you 100% sure that no data is collected anywhere , you don't use any Google/social media ? Are you running your personal scripts to block online tracking , have you encrypted all of your data and store them offline , are you behind a well trusted VPN ? If no you are not free and even if you are so paranoid even then there is always a mistake that you have made somewhere in the process.
