If you're a newfag to Linux, go elementaryOS. It's easy to use and it's what I started out with.
Here's a simple guide if something goes wrong
>I can't install a .deb
Type "sudo apt-get install gdebi" in Terminal, this will install an application to allow you to use .debs
>It's erroring when I try to install something via Terminal!
Search engines are your friends, look up the issue, 99% of times it will have a solution
>But I have Windows apps I wanna use!
WINE exists, and try to force yourself to use Linux alternatives, and try not to touch Windows if at all possible.
Doing these will make your Linux experience the best ever.
Also be sure to customize your system to make it your own. I recommend the Moka icon pack.

You freetards all tell bullshit like this, but the real problems begun when I tried Gnu/gentoo/autism/loonix, I couldn't set up the internet connection unless I installed a specific driver, which I'd have to get from the site, so I had to do that on Windows, then reboot into loonex and figure out how to activate it. The drivers rely on a shitty script that works 30% of the time, can't even make that up. This wasn't a problem on my netbook, but performance was even worse than windows 8, fuck. Constant lag, CPU overload, long responses, ugh.

Linux literally installs the drivers for you. How do you fuck that up?

>> No.67351510

windows is salty about you installing other OS' on the system.

One time i tried installing Debian but because i forgot to DBAN the hard drive, despite overwriting the windows partition, the windows kernel promptly bricked the entire computer and gave me a big "fuck you" blue screen with a ":^)" face.

I managed to remove it after i DBAN'ed the drive, but somehow the remaining header byte is still slightly corrupt and won't let me update the system.

No it doesn't, you laptop cuck. On windows I plug shit in and it just works, here I have to summon demons for basic functionality, only for freetards to then come and tell me what I went through wasn't real. Stallman, Torvalds and others behind linux are abysmal autists who refuse to use the power and opportunities that capitalism gives them in a capitalistic society just because "muh free software". Linux would not be such a mess if there was a team of devs behind it with consistent paychecks because the software that they produce is given out at value that is enough to compensate their spendings/work. And with a marketing team, Linux would actually take off and would get wide support across all industries.

If you're running supported hardware the drivers are baked into the kernel and should just werk, the only exception is probably proprietary graphics drivers which still get installed by any normie distro.
If you have some obscure unsupported wireless chipset too bad, use windows then.

Bullshit? Exaggeration? For me it works fine even if I keep the shit on for days. What kind of machine are you even using, I have a toaster from 2010 and it works without an error.
>big metal smart rock make loud scary noise. grug not like
I have no idea how Windows is directly responsible for "louder" idling, since it's the hardware heating up and fans making the noise. It is true that Windows has more background processes, but so it has wider functionality. And I bet TempleOS games would beat both W10 and Linux in terms of loading the hardware, but that just proves that for more functionality and/or graphical quality you have to pay with more computations.
>The UI is horribly designed.
Alright, here's a good one. If they ditched this whole Xbox colored square bullshit and just went with the "win 7 but more minimalistic and modern" theme, it'd be perfect.
>The stock applications suck like ass

Had there been no manuals, these lincucks would become an endangered species.

Everytime anyone complains about viruses and slow PC, I install elementary/ubuntu for them and they never run into any problem anymore. Linux for everyday use is for retards and technologically incompetent fucks. Anyone who doesn't use their linux machine as a server or headless workstation should be sterilized, but then they are incapable of breeding with their shriveled up tools.

I reckon that there is software in windows that detects non-window software and deletes it.

Once my friend used a workspace laptop with win7 but needes win10, so he made a live Bootable. It booted and all worked fine until the next user turned the laptop on: it would not boot and there was a BIOS error reporting that an OS could not be found. Win10 had deleted win7.

The funniest joke in your post is thinking windows only takes 20 minutes to update. I've got an NVMe 960 Pro on skylake-x and it takes an hour on the major updates. How anyone on the Windows Update team still has a job is beyond me.

>windows system restore copies the entire windows directory (about 30GB of IO) for every update
>just so you can rollback (because these updates are that poorly tested)
>all this IO runs through the windows defender service, even though it's being performed by trusted services.

If they're going to pull shit like this at least make ReeeeeeFS bootable so you can instantly instantly snapshot the system directory, like my BSD installs have been doing for decades.

Is that why updates are so slow? I'm using Win7 and installing 3 "important" updates took like a half hour on a fast pc.
It's staggering when you think of how much a modern pc can actually do in that time. And that's not even the "creating restore point" step, it was mostly spent installing some .net update. What the fuck are they doing to take so long.

Its so simple. When you got the willpower and the average IQ to learn about the machine you're using and manage every piece of software on it the way you really want,linux installation wont be hard. Hiccups and mistakes can happen in any new OS installation and now there is one big , BIG difference. Installing linux and smth goes wrong? You either fcked smthing urself cause u are used to download shit without noticing what it really is as a windowsfag. Have software problem with gnu/linux? Blame the software and how it supports the kernel, dont blame the kernel. But..windows installation and software went bad? Shit OS development,fully bloated and with spyware.

But you're describing Windows anon.

Extra fun, you can't access the Internet to download drivers since the network adapter doesn't work.
