Windows vs Linux Anonymous 02/01/2020 (Sat) 10:15:05 No. 718
Base up, W10 is superior. Easier, more efficient, better support and compatibility, less hassle. But for the die hards, why is Linux better to you?

It's not like I'm married to Linux or anything. I also use other OS like OpenBSD or whatever else runs on my hardware. Well except crap like Android and Windows.
>>718 I only use linux because Windoze is essentially spyware. Maybe I'm a bit schizo and naive, but I've been told Microsuck screencaps usage for development purposes, and I don't agree with that type of thing.
>>718 Easier? Sure for many people but many linux distros are comparatively easier. You can even choose "difficult" distros that have automated install scripts for things like Gentoo or Arch and install visual desktops and package managers. You can get the best of both worlds without paying and being owned/spied on by your software. If you're using Windows and coming on these boards there are likely a few individuals interested in exploiting your windows machine that already have backdoors anyway. >better this and that I'll tell you. When I had a friend that updated to Windows 10, the first he complained about were the updates and getting stuck on shutdown and boot processing said updates. I currently then was trying a few distros with literally all of them working like a charm. With linux you don't get that pozz without seriously fucking up, and when you get more control that can lead more efficiency. I won't run windows on my machines over the fear of persistent intrusions and malware. If you're choosing a distro don't choose it by what comes preinstalled unless you don't want to install more software by choice. You can install many softwares without prior bloat depending on package repositories, or limitless opinions if compiling by source. My last windows OS was XP because of Vista infamy.
