People will avoid linux like the plague. Linux is much more expensive than Windows. On site service is nearly impossible to find and is expensive if you can even find someone. Online service is impractical and slow. People will buy new computers for less money than it costs to use linux.

@gilkesisking Yes. I'm referring to what people will actually do, not what you want them to do. Unless there is ten more years of quarantine, people will have jobs. 99% of those jobs will require skills in office technology (e-mail, word-processing, scientific programming, JCL and business computing). Linux is not good enough for the workload we will have. We will have to buy functioning computers. I know. Depressing.

I switched to Linux when it was announced that windows 7 support would be ending, to avoid moving to windows 10. Now I use Pop!_OS linux as my daily driver, which I heard about from Anthony. I do still use windows 7 for some stuff that I can't get working properly in proton or wine or lutris, but for the most part I live in and have lived in Linux for a couple years now, and i Love it. Also why is anthony saying gnome wrong, is it just to taunt people who grokk the lingo? Also, SURE you don't really NEED to learn how the terminal works if you're an average user, but my goodness is it a powerful and useful tool.

I'd personally just go with an SSD that's big enough for Linux. I mean, you're going all out right? If you use a computer with an AMD or Intel GPU, you are off to a better start than with Nvidia. AMD and even Intel is plug and play compared to Nvidia as the drivers are open source. Where as, Nvidia drivers are proprietary and have to be installed manually. That, and you would have to apply a workaround to fix things like screen tearing, etc. As a former Nvidia user, I can vouch for this. Once I plugged in my AMD RX 570, all the issues (especially while gaming) I had just went away. No screwing with drivers is required. Just plug and play. Now my old Nvidia card is used exclusively for GPU passthrough with a Windows KVM. Sure Nvidia can work. But it would take going the extra mile just to get it working decently. And if you do a kernel upgrade on Linux, you might have to reinstall the driver if the driver isn't applied to the new kernel. So take it from me, for any future computers you get, and you want to run Linux, avoid Nvidia GPUs at all costs. It's just less hassle in the long run. Also, if your CPU and board supports IOMMU, you could just set up GPU passthrough on top of Linux. Then run Windows in that KVM. My brother just did that recently. Now he's using Linux as his host machine. Windows runs with a secondary dedicated GPU in a VM on his system. He primarily did this because he doesn't like the idea of games with anti-cheat having special privileges to the Windows kernel. Not only has it been known to cripple Windows installs in the past, but it can serve as a huge system exploit. So should Windows get messed up, he can revert via a snapshot. I even have GPU passthrough set up on my system. From my experiences, there's many benefits to be had with such a setup. You can use any card you want for GPU passthrough part; be it AMD or Nvidia.

"Installing Linux is complicated and scary process"? Heck no. Installing Linux is usually a stupid easy process. Using a configured Linux setup on the daily is a delight. Actually dealing with specific configurations and troubleshooting "common" problems is an existential nightmare buried in a google rabbit hole of wrong/outdated answers and bad opinions. And I actually like Linux. Personally I'll keep Linux for game SERVERS and Windows for Game PLAYING... for now. Amazing video from Anthony as always. I hope he never does that Morpheus pose again. :P

I use Linux mint on my laptop because its light weight and simple. On the PC I have a dual boot setup with PopOS and Windows but I rarely boot PopOS anymore, since the games I play require Windows. PopOS was nice when I was doing graphics programming, I liked how System76 included nvidia drivers. Gentoo seems cool, I like how it compiles everything from source and has a solid package management system.

Anthony's presentation and diction in this video was EXCELENT and very understandable. You were amazing in this video. Recently I have been considering changing my PC's and my MACs over to Linux. Any suggestion for converting old MAC's over to Linux? I want to move to one cross compatible platform. This will be a test bed for eventually converting the office machines over to Linux. I have been considering doing that for a while now. What about MINT and ZORAN? Where do they fit in this scenario?

I installed Pop! OS on Virtualbox. The default resolution causes the taskbar to cover the continue button for completing the installation of the OS. It also said there were over 100 components to update for the OS. I updated them all. Then tried to reboot. After BIOS it says "FATAL: no bootable medium found! System halted." I don't think it's supposed to do that.

After further research, turns out Virtualbox will remove the OS ISO medium from the list. Have to re-add it if the installation didn't take. Also, you have to move the install window a little, right click the desktop, and enlarge the resolution in order to view the "Next" button to complete installation (it also helps to put the view as Scaled and adjust the viewable window as necessary).

Well, my entire household uses Linux daily. So I don't know what hoops you are talking about. But I can tell you what is wrong with Windows today. Ads, bloat, spying and forced (also buggy) updates. Not to mention total inconsistency in the UI. Like two control panels? Talk about confusing. Also, no F8 key to get into safe mode should something happen where you can't even boot into Windows normally. No it has to crash multiple times before you are given the option. Do you see where I am going with this? Since after 7, we traded efficiency for inefficiency. Why do you think 7 was the most popular version of Windows next to XP? Because it was simple and the user didn't have to fight with their system just to change default applications unlike in 10. Also, people didn't have their settings changed after an update or.. have certain things removed like applications. If anything, that seems like more headaches. So yes. Windows is a pile of crap now. Especially with 11, it's showing even more. I would have stayed on Windows myself. But after dealing with 8 - 10 on customer computers, Linux was a much more viable option. And I do everything I ever did on Windows just fine; game too.

I loved this piece. As someone, who has been using Ubuntu on my server for around 10 years, managed CentOS systems for servers and now even running my Dell Inspiron 7391 laptop with Ubuntu, I personally think, that it is a great alternative. Why do I keep Windows on my main PC? Why don't I at least use PCIe-passthrough or something? Tried that. I lose a little performance with a bit of a hassle due to having to have two GPUs in my rig. I also currently am enduring Windows 10, because it feels known (I have been using Linux servers a lot, but don't really know everything behind the main desktop environments). My PC will be eligible for Windows 11, but I don't think I want it. I am annoyed in regards to privacy issues and the lack of control. I believe open-source software is the right answer - along with premium support plans or SLAs for corporations. Since I am a software engineer myself, I want to be able to have a look at the code of an application IF I decide so. Chances are I am going to ditch Windows entirely. Perhaps my wife and daughter will do so, too. Whether or not, I hope you, Anthony, get to do more such videos, because you have a talent in being able to express complicated stuff in an easy manner by reducing it to the most necessary things. I hope you get to do more of these! #anthonylinuxchannel please! It's great to have Linux-aware people, who make tutorials from the point of view of an average Windows user.

Excellent demo. Installing the beginner-friendly distros really is extremely easy. Though it bears mentioning that the other side of the distro spectrum isn't so much "hard mode" as it is "flexible and powerful, at the expense of a higher knowledge requirement". The other thing I think bears mentioning for new people (at least the more tinkering-prone people) coming into the linux environment is that it's important to know what's special about your distro, and what the best practices for it are, so you know when NOT to follow instructions "for linux" verbatim, but translate them a bit to work within the best practices of your distro. The most common example of this is working through your package manager rather than around it, but there are many more. Also: Yes! NixOS made your list! I truly believe nix (or something like it) is the future of package and configuration management.

Great video! I just recently converted my wife to be a Linux user. The occasion was a hard drive crash. I happened to have an old SSD with the Linux install from my laptop (completely different hardware than hers). I popped it in and it booted up without a single hiccup! That would never happen with Windows which crashes with the slightest hardware change. Since this happened, she's been enjoying about a twice the speed (responsiveness) on the same hardware and no crashes. Of course, it was not without compromises and difficulties - she was a CorelDraw user and had to learn InkScape as I couldn't get CorelDraw working for the life of me. But other than that it was a fairly smooth transition. I can say from experience that Linux is much more responsive than Windows on the same hardware, and this gap will probably just increase as Microsoft keeps adding more and more junk and bloatware to their products. And the availability of software products have improved drastically in the past decade - almost all important software has a Linux version or an acceptable substitute. So, I also highly recommend switching to Linux (I used Ubuntu and now Linux Mint) - but you will need to be willing to learn new things - it's definitely quite different from Windows!

Microsoft has been adding bloatware upon bloatware and taking away control from the user since Windows XP. When I was about forced to upgrade to Windows 7, I just broke and said "time for Linux. Which one will it be?" Tried a few best distros and desktop environments and went with Debian MATE. No looking back. Just calculate when this happened... still a very satisfied "customer". ;) With each version of Windows after XP I just became more convinced I chose well. Windows 8-11 always makes me laugh thinking "lol Microsoft, you're so going down... slowly but surely". Linux is the future, mainly because it gives you a choice of what you're working environment is going to look and function like.

To add. You don't need two drives, you can just partition you drive. It isn't advisable because Windows updates often delete the linux bootloader. If you know how to recover from it, then it's easy to fix, but for new users it isn't advisable.

@Gustav Palsson Yea I only recommended VSCode _if_ you didn't do windows development. Other IDEs just lack in this area (for obvious reasons) I read your comment about not being comfortable with running multiple OSes, and while I think VMs (especially with stuff like pausing to eliminate boot times) can be a great substitute for having to reboot every second, I also acknowledge it is not as clean as having one OS running. My advice would be to experiment. If you do not like the workflow then by all means use the tool best for you! If that is Windows, then who am I to tell you no? Good luck!

@D Reaper Your response showed me that you didn’t understand anything that I said and that’s ok because I think that what’s going on is that we live in two totally different worlds. I work for an organization and my department is responsible for making sure that the organization is able to use their computers to do their jobs. You guys are just building personal computers and playing video games. You should do your research instead of just calling my a troll. Calling me a troll is the easy way out.

If your CPU and board supports IOMMU, you could just set up GPU passthrough on top of Linux. Then run Windows in that KVM. My brother just did that recently. Now he's using Linux as his host machine. Windows runs with a secondary dedicated GPU in a VM on his system. He primarily did this because he doesn't like the idea of games with anti-cheat having special privileges to the Windows kernel. Not only has it been known to cripple Windows installs in the past, but it can serve as a huge system exploit. So should Windows get messed up, he can revert via a snapshot. I even have GPU passthrough set up on my system. From my experiences, there's many benefits to be had with such a setup.

As a former Windows poweruser, at least to the extent a poweruser, my favorite Linux Distro is 100% hands down Manjaro, I think for most users coming from Windows, they will feel the same too. Especially those from the gaming side of things. TL;DR: Manjaro is as beginner friendly as any beginner friendly distro, but it comes with all the versatility of arch available at your fingertips and due to being arch based, administrative stuff is often easier to do on it than on any 'beginner friendly' distro. If you're a gamer, if you're a poweruser, if you're someone who uses non-standard/obscure software that nobody even knows exists. There is no question. Start with Manjaro! Tip: If installing manjaro with an nvidia gpu, right when you start the installation process there's an option to select a gpu driver. Select the non-free/proprietary driver, not the free one! This allows you to get the nvidia driver pre-installed. More in-depth: There is still a learning curve for administrative stuff, but it's better to have a learning curve for it on Manjaro (or any of the stated hard mode distros) than to have to jump through hoops for it on things like Ubuntu and Mint. The main reason former Windows users will like Manjaro is that it's rolling release, this means it always gives you the latest, up-to-date versions of software (from your kernel and drivers to your video and music players) this is *critical* for a lot of windows users, especially gamers, and on most distros you have to jump through hoops just to install the latest graphics drivers whereas on Manjaro you can actually get it preinstalled, and installing it (even through GUI) is easy. Another important reason is the community, Arch has a lot of elitists within theirs but I've seen none of that within Manjaro's community which is more welcoming to noobs. Manjaro is as customizable as Arch, it has everything arch has, but bundled in a more user friendly package. One of the most important features it has and the reason I will porbably never be able to use anything that isn't Arch-based ever again in my life, is access to AUR (Arch User Repositories). What this means, is that when you want to install a non-standard package (discord for instance used to be one not that long ago) while the plebs on Ubuntu and Debian and Fedora have to do a web search, hope to find there's a user repo somewhere on the internet, manually add it to their package manager's repo list, then download and install whatever package it as and pray to whatever gods they believe in it's gonna work... On Manjaro and Arch (and probably most Arch-Based distros) we can just use AUR, we simply look up the package name (for instance through an AUR package manager like yay, so lets say I wanna install uh... ungoogled chromium, a non-spooky version of chrome, also non-standard version of chrome. I can just open a terminal and type 'yay ungoogled chromium' and it will show me a list of packages with similar names/descriptions, and once I find the one I want I just tell it to install that one for me, and that's it. Now I just have to wait for it to compile like a good little gentoo boy. Err... I mean Arch boy. BTW there's also a GUI option for this available on manjaro, you don't need to use the terminal way (it's just that once you've used linux for a while, you'll learn, the terminal is superior to the GUI, anything you can do on a GUI you can usually do faster in a terminal, I literally find myself missing the terminal whenever I use windows, that's how much better it is, and I come from a windows background ok, I blanched at the mere thought of using a terminal back when I first tried linux, but I've come around, you will too. You will too >:) ) If you use any obscure software that not that many people use, anything at all, chances are it's not in your distro's official repos and you willl not be able to find a precompiled version of it to easily installed through an online user repository, so you will probably have to download, compile and install the thing manually yourself, which requires intermediate programming knowledge and advanced linux knowledge. At this point, can we really call distros like ubuntu and linux mint user friendly anymore? They don't seem that user friendly to me compared to the arch based ones. Maybe if the only thing you ever do on your PC is browsing, but in that case it doesn't really matter what distro you use anymore does it? Any distro can do that fine out of the box. I could name like a 100 different reasons why I like manjaro over everything else I've tried, but for things that truly set it apart from things like ubuntu and mint? I think that about covers the key points.

(1:57) 1. Inaccuracy detected: Fedora isn't based on "Red Hat", rather, Fedora is basically independent but with some assistance from Red Hat and/or some of their employees, as far as I know, but I may be wrong. Instead, if I recall correctly, the source code flow from top to bottom goes like this: Fedora Rawhide → Fedora → CentOS Stream → Red Hat Enterprise Linux → AlmaLinux. The inaccuracy may have came from the fact that Fedora is the modern descendant of the old Red Hat Linux that was popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s (before Ubuntu gained popularity). 2. While Debian isn't listed in the graphic as there wasn't enough space, I classify it as an intermediate distribution (along with Devuan, which is based on Debian). Debian is my primary desktop/server Linux distro as I outgrew Ubuntu and its handholding features back in 2015, after first using it in 2008, thanks in part to online tutorials that weren't beginner-friendly as they prioritised command-line methods instead of graphical methods. However, I'm considering moving away from Debian, at least on my main workstation, to either Fedora, Manjaro _(with Architect to install stock DEs without Manjaro customisations),_ openSUSE, or even EndeavourOS.

@ryan wolfe I think so. I know I did when I switched all my computers to Linux over 5 years ago. My household has no complaints. With this 11 disaster, if it wasn't for Linux, I would have throw out every computer in my household. Including the desktop I use; which runs an FX-6300. Minus my brother's gaming rig. So that's like 10 computers I would have to replace if it wasn't for me using Linux on them. All things considered, Linux really saved my bacon. lol

@ryan wolfe Nah. You just like learning things. I'm more of a balanced type. I like learning to an extent. But I don't like making things super difficult; I'd be happy with something like Garuda Linux though. But KDE Neon fits the bill for me; it's been said that KDE Neon is a harder 'distro,' but I don't see it. ;) However, for certain things, I like to have is a GUI to start off with; like when installing Linux. Other stuff, I like the terminal more; such as installing all the software I need. KDE Plasma gives me a decent balance of both. Never mind, Windows users say I'm "touched" simply because I can use Linux without an issue; I was using open source software long before switching to Linux. So their biggest excuse is that they use "professional" software like Adobe or, that gaming is totally terrible with Linux. Well, there's many great alternatives that work on Linux. But, they won't leave their safe zone and try something different. And Wine with Vulkan has really changed things when it comes to gaming on Linux. Only things that wouldn't work is games that have anti-cheat. I play all my games on Linux without a problem. But if it's games like Valorant that have anti-cheat and require TPM 2.0, well, I would stay away from games like that anyways. I'd never in a million years want anti-cheat software running at ring 0 of my kernel if I were still on Windows. System instabilities and potential exploits isn't something I'd want on my system. Now, if I wanted to play such games, I would use my GPU pass through setup and keep all that in a Windows VM.

You are going to seriously confuse a lot of people with the terminal even if it is simple commands. I can personally guarantee you that the average computer user does not want to type in cryptic command after cryptic command (what they think is cryptic) in order to install a program or update their system. Isn't that why we have package managers? Yes I do agree that if you know how to work the CLI, you can do things very efficiently and quickly. The thing is that your average computer user, and even beginner Linux user is not likely to benefit from the CLI. How many average Windows computer users do you know use the command prompt regularly or at all?
