I find it so unfortunate that such a big company like microsoft doesn't do a better job at trying to make windows better. Every single time they try to implement modern features in windows they fail miserably and give up on it, biggest example windows 8. Microsoft had so much potential to seriously compete with what apple does, having a complete range of products from mobile to desktop but they just didn't do it. Can you imagine how great it would be to have a good windows phone and a good version of windows 8 in 2020 on dedicated microsoft devices. Instead we have windows 10 which is basically just a fancier looking windows 7 and poor integration of smartphones from other brands. And the worst part of it is that they are the market leaders so anyone who wants to actually innovate can't. I really hope that apple or google gain more market share for pc's so microsoft finally wakes up and does something with windows or they go down like nokia for example did.

I'd agree the Western world uses Windows a fair amount, countries like China use a version of Linux with the Chinese fading out Windows usage in the next few years. All to do with security..... Me, I'm tinkering around with Linux. While the command line interface is a pain, Mint seems fairly easy to use. And Steam runs on it. Very easy to set up too. Bill must be gutted that no one likes sending him data.

All I can say is that Windows 10 runs like a dream on my extremely common HP Desktop. Too many annoying bugs never get fixed in Linux, for example every Xubuntu release after 16.04.6 seems to have issues with mouse freezes and mouse pauses when copying files on the HP. So to get a good experience I have to run a LTS support version that only gets the main security updates. The guy at Dedoimedo who reviews Linux distros is 100% right about the lack of quality. Then even on Xubuntu 16.04.6 I have to remove Lightlocker and replace it with Gnomescreensaver, avoid using VLC, install Alsamixer gui to get full volume control. Install Wine using a how-to from the FOSS site. This works well but who knows if Wine desktop integration won't get broken again and stay that way for months or more again. And remember that Xubuntu is about the most sensible and stable distro you'd ever find.

There's a difference between an OS and an ecosystem. Linux is a far superior OS to Windows and Mac OS. Everything you mentioned is related to the Windows ecosystem. Except things like @ 4:22 the registry, but actually it's a mess. Oh, 6:14 LOL. "1. Install updates. 2. Clean temporary data. 3. Perform AV scan. 4. Reinstall Windows."

It was mad being a Mac usser whilst studying chemistry, in particular computational chemistry, where most softwares were specifically available on windows only despite MacOS being better suited for the jobs I needed to do. I had to do a lot of programming which was based off UNIX and it was so frustrating having to go find a windows PC on campus to do the work that I should have been able to do on the Mac. Not a fault of mac nor of windows but the majority of Scientific software, from my experience, is so outdated, clunky and over encumber-some that it wouldn't surprise me if they are the same updates since the late 90s/eaarly 00s.

Windows is just most productive software , I agree . Linux ,specifically ubuntu is best software for programmers and development, I agree indeed. Are you a developer , yeah python developer to be specific (web development on which linux is best and machine learning on which mac os x is worst and deep learning where windows as well as mac os x both are worst . Windows have compatibility issues with Google's Tensor flow 2.0 and mac os x has issue with powerful GPU options so linux is the only way if you dual boot windows with linux) So what should I choose , Umm.... Why not both... I bought a windows power ful gaming laptop with i7 and bla bla and just dual booted with linux 18.04 and boom I got best of both worlds...

So basically it comes down to this.. use windows because everyone has always used windows and thus it is better supported. Meanwhile, the servers that provided this video to your laptop are Linux. Okay, I will grant that because everyone has used Windows for so long, gaming is better on Windows.. but at what cost. Every Windows PC that is connected to the internet needs anti-virus protection. My work laptop, with 12 GB of memory is painful to use because of the all of the virus software, and other security software they need on it. Meanwhile, my Chromebook with 4 GB of memory sings, and I could make a very use able linux box out of a 4 year old laptop with 4GB of memory.. how many windows machines can say that?

Vor 13 Tage

Bill McHale

@0xDeadBeef No, that really is not true. Yes if you have 50 browser tabs open 4 GB is going to be a problem.. But if you keep it reasonable, and make wise choices with your desktop, your 4 GB linux laptop is going to preform better than it ever did with Windows on it. The notion of what is a decent machine (8 Gigs? 16 Gigs? 32 Gigs?) keeps changing every few years with Windows... Granted it does creep upwards with Linux as well... but I could get a decently usable machine with a core 2 duo based thinkpad with 4 Gigs of memory, even if I used xfce, mate or kde... Granted, battery probably wouldn't last too long.. but we are talking about a laptop over a decade old.

"It Just Works" really isn't a thing for Windows simply because of the huge range of drivers, some of which can be horrid, even with Windows certification. I can't even count the number of times between 1992 and 2010 that I constantly had to hunt down the "latest" video drivers since manufacturers would ship the ones that got good numbers but were unstable, then finally gave up and just accepted stock Windows drivers (and forgot about all the wizbang features of a card). It's the price paid for a open hardware system.

Registry doesn't really give you that much control... Try to disable the Delivery Optimization service that windows uses to sneak windows updates when you're not looking after you've disabled the windows updates and "paused updates" in the settings, but suddenly find out you've downloaded 1GB using svchost in a single day. It gives you "access denied" even as administrator. Changing the permissions in the registry does nothing. This was the final straw that made me want to permanently switch to linux at the soonest since I have a limited data plan and windows pushes updates nearly every single day. Goddamn cancerous.

@Jona Müller Yea I know windows never misses the chance of a network connection. I'm actually using GlassWire though so I can limit my usage very well. I can monitor every single kilobyte that goes in and out. Unfortunately I can't do anything if the process that's downloading is using svchost because browsers and almost everything else uses svchost to connect to the internet as well, so my only option is to disable the service itself... EXCEPT I CANT DISABLE THIS ONE of course, so every time it starts out of nowhere I have to manually stop it, otherwise I have to leave my laptop disconnected when I'm not using it. I've given up trying to download games or torrents overnight because of this because I'd find out I consumed 3x the bandwidth I expected when I wake up. I only download when I'm using the laptop now.

Windows is just always there and always worked, but I have to say a 100% increase in a user base is something to crow about for Linux. Another old meme; No More Democrats! or No More Republicans! Really, who cares? Mom wants recipes, dad wants sports and the computer they share came with Windows. The people who use linux, Unix, Debian or RH are people with a sincere need or a specific purpose OR they want to see what they can run under Windows as an exercise, a study, like me.

Edge is even worse now that it's based on chrome. 7. Constant crashing of programs. 8. No matter what wifi you want, wifi settings always hides the network you want to connect to, because Windows is a psychic and psychotic demon. 9. Don't you just LOVE those forced updates that break everything? 10. You'll live with it because you don't know how to use linux and can't afford a Mac. "it's reliable!" "it just works!"

Bruh you can literally use every other OS on Windows through Virtual Box. Another thing is, no matter what app you are running or how old it is, compatibility settings always do the job, you can get Classic Shell to customize the UI and overall desktop textures. And for those of you that say "Linux is more optimized", I used Ubuntu, one of the easiest to run Linux's and the cursor moves at 12 frames per second (VM Ware and that doesn't really affect performance).
