What? Are you serious? Why?

>Clicking an exe and selecting the plugins/settigns you want?

You're cutting out steps. You have to randomly search the web hoping to find an executable for the program you want. When you do install it, chances are it tries to force some unrelated software on you (should be illegal desu but that's beside the point), and then updating it has to either be done by a built-in updater (which often just TELLS you there's an update and links to the site anyway), or you have to check on your own if there are updates and repeat the process from the start.

On GNU/Linux you can commands like the ones I mentioned to easily install most programs and keep them all up to date easily at the same time.

If you don't think it's easier on GNU/Linux, it's because you're treating it like Windows instead of sitting down and learning something new.

For fucks sake, and I was considering upgrading to a new GPU and possibly have Windows 10 on a dual boot setup but fuck I hate Microsoft. They'll do the same thing they always do:

-try to kill the backlash with their paid online stealth marketers
-admit that people don't want this spyware
-either disable it or allow the user to disable it
-wait a year and then force it to always be on via an automatic update
