10 ways Linux is just BETTER needs to come next.

I have spent more time troubleshooting linux issues in 6 months than I have spent troubleshooting windows issues in my entire life. Don't get me wrong, Linux is amazing for being free, but trying to get linux to do anything besides web browsing pretty much requires a visit to Google for 99% of us, and that just isn't practical. I have a server running windows (after having dicked around with several linux distros over the course of a couple years), and I haven't looked back. Windows IS the superior OS.

Linus, all these reasons are futile in comparison to the pros Linux has to offer except for the gaming, but all that has nothing to do with the OS's capabilities but the fact that companies market towards Windows support. You'd think that someone named Linus would appreciate Linux more.... Mac however totally sucks. So, if this were a comparison between Win and Mac then I would agree.

Okay, it's got more support, the only reason it's seen as better, basically they marketed it better because it's a corporation. Most of the other features that you include are available on linux - which is also more customizable and optimized. Lol, your points literally list features that are on most linux and even Mac os's.

Yes reason windows is better... 1. Cause everyone can't affroad mac but they need a pc... 2. U can download pirated apps... 3. U can also pirate windows OS 4. U can fit any hardware depending on your budget 5. U can play cracked games... No need to buy always like xbox or ps4 These are the reason for so many people... But in one aspect windows is better that's no hardware monopoly like apple and not overly priced and gaming... For rest other cases mac is bullet...

I still don't know, why ppl have the taskbar at the bottom. Long time ago, we had the 4:3 monitors and it made sense, to put it at the bottom. Since we now have 16:9 for a very long time, try to put the taskbar to the side. It maybe takes a little more space overall, but it's so much better, if you have more space top to bottom. And now comes the main part, why i put it to the side. I often work with 10+ programs or sometimes 15+ windows open. If the taskbar is on the side, you will always have enough space, to read the first few letters. For example: Open up 10x windows explorer and go into different folders. If the taskbar is on the bottom, all the windows will be grouped. Or if you have grouping disabled, it will only show the symbol without anything in it. Since i have it sideways, i can open up windows explorer 28x times, go into different folders and at least see the drive letter and first letters of the folder i'm in. Not the best example, but if you work with many open windows, you will quickly notice all the advantages.

1. Windows Gaming is better, and graphic cards/new peripherals support Windows Eh, this is becoming less true by the minute. Most of what I do on my PC is gaming, and I had little to no trouble playing the games I had when I switched to Linux. ProtonDB can show you how many games are playable via Proton, many of them run perfectly. There are tons of native games as well, most indie games support Linux out of the box. And AAA games are having a surge in Linux ports thanks to porting companies like Feral Interactive. The games not playable in Linux, both natively and Proton, is usually because of DRM (which sucks anyway) or Anti-Cheat software (EAC, for example, which could have supported Linux thanks to Valve...but then Epic Games bought them.) Regarding peripherals and graphic cards, most new graphic cards end up working with Linux thanks to community-driven drivers or end up getting support not too long after their release. 2. Customization I'm not even going to rebuttal this one. Linux is more customizable in EVERY single way, EVERY SINGLE FUCKING WAY. Like try to find an argument against this you won't. I'm not even gonna say anything. Check out r/unixporn, or just search it up. Also regedit fucking sucks and you can easily screw up your entire Windows install, and is super unintuitive. And Task Scheduler isn't good either. At least compared to the Linux alternatives. 3. Users, better troubleshooting. Linux actually has a far better community, despite having less users. How? Well, most Linux users tend to be enthusiasts for their Linux distrubtiion, or just Linux in general and are usually really well-versed in what they do. The enthusiasm of using Linux and just the "cool" nature of using it causes users to generally interact more with the community more than their Windows counterpart. Most people just use Windows, and use it "just because". Most users don't interact with the community or spend time helping other people solve their Windows problems. 4. Just works So does Linux, most laptops can use Linux without any tinkering. Just use Ubuntu, or PopOS. 5. Shortcut keys I'm not going to rebutall this either, it's another stupid point. Use a tiling windows manager, or even something like KDE and it will have way more shortcuts. Tiling window managers are completely keyboard-driven, you don't even need a mouse. 6. UI unity BAHAHAHAHA. Windows UI has the worst consistiency I have EVER seen. Decades of old UI still pop up, right clicking in different places have different menus, taskbars are all different, everything is so inconsistent. KDE or XFCE on the other hand are far better. MacOS, especially, has some of the greatest UI. Also most distros don't have "specialized use cases", the only ones that do that I can think of off the top of my head is Kali Linux which is for hacking. 7. Taskbar and File System Are you fucking kidding me, every OS has or can have this. Linux file explorers are way more unified and streamlined, and same with MacOS. Also the UNIX file organization (Linux and MacOS) is arguably more organized and easier than the Windows one. 8. Reliability No. Most of the points in this video are either: A) Already in all the other OSs (Linux, MacOS, EVEN BSD) B) Windows has more users C) Just completely wrong Literally the only partially true point is the first one, and maybe the fourth one. *I wrote this quickly so pardon the grammatical errors*

File explorer is much faster than finder in my opinion. In windows to move a folder I right click on the folder, search for the new position (that sometimes you don’t know where it is) and click paste. In macos i have to open to finder windows, one for the initial position and the second for the new directory, drag and drop with two finger. I feel really uncomfortable with finder, if someone can help me to cut and paste as fast as i do with windows I accept any tip.

If u go into engineering tools mac is gold u can run parallel deaktop to run windows inside mac it functions like app not a virtual machine... Much better than Windows vmware...

yeah arch I also used it's good for daily job but at the same time not so many commercial apps not available... and what's point in configuring something which will be same for everyone for developing purpose you need to config mac too... see windows has every ui mac having but windows things breaks, don't work or atleast don't work perfectly... people in daily life don't need to configure everything from scrath which is time-wasting unless you want to maintain super privacy... apart from that being unix based and apple backed mac is more stable than any linux. Now I can see downside of macOS all because of apple and shit ceo team cook... removed cuda environment of nvidia, devices are over priced and not so much video games are available if it would be steve jobs no-one could have stand beside it... today's macbook is all are work of steve jobs and his team...

@ThatNormalBunny that is what my current setup is. But if I could have 2 computers the Linux would be a powerful low power system, while the gaming would focus on gaming. You would not want to run a powerful gaming system 24/7, that's too much power to be constantly running unless it was in use.

But I have a big question....how about Professional work? one thing is high-end gaming, daily tasks and other completely different thing is Audio production, Video Editing, 3d Rendering where you need all the posible resources available to speed up your work and not being wasted on stupid background processes that you won't even need as a professional. I'm actually hating windows 10 for those reasons. One thing is having amazing technology cheap at our disposal and more available than ever, and other thing that the fact of having 32 gb of RAM doesn't mean that it should be wasted on senseless background processes

And it also has a Document folder **the crowd goes wild**. But that does not make windows any better inherently, it just highlights the circular nature of being the most popular.
