>>11755 OK when I started browsing /g/, I was like this as well. But when I started doing some autistic shit like downloading YouTube videos and pictures in bulk, I noticed many tutorials were of Linux. I started using Linux and stuff was simpler for me. I just had to copy paste commands from some forum and done. Windows is good for everyday use and macos has a really good ui. If you have a lowend PC / laptop you want to reuse, Linux is the best option tho.

>>11755 I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX. Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!

Winux is not an opewating system unto itsewf, but wathew anothew fwee component of a fuwwy functioning GNU system made usefuw by the GNU cowewibs, sheww utiwities and vitaw system components compwising a fuww OS as defined by POSIX. Many computew usews wun a modified vewsion of the GNU system evewy day, without weawizing it. Thwough a pecuwiaw tuwn of events, the vewsion of GNU which is widewy used today is often cawwed "Winux", and many of its usews awe not awawe that it is basicawwy the GNU system, devewoped by the GNU Pwoject.

Winux is the kewnew: the pwogwam in the system that awwocates the machine's wesouwces to the othew pwogwams that you wun. The kewnew is an essentiaw pawt of an opewating system, but usewess by itsewf; it can onwy function in the context of a compwete opewating system. Winux is nowmawwy used in combination with the GNU opewating system: the whowe system is basicawwy GNU with Winux added, ow GNU/Winux. Aww the so-cawwed "Winux" . No, Wichawd, it's 'Winux', not 'GNU/Winux'. The most impowtant contwibutions that the FSF made to Winux wewe the cweation of the GPW and the GCC compiwew. Those awe fine and inspiwed pwoducts. GCC is a monumentaw achievement and has eawned you, WMS, and the Fwee Softwawe Foundation countwess kudos and much appweciation. Fowwowing awe some weasons fow you to muww ovew, incwuding some awweady answewed in youw FAQ. One guy, Winus Towvawds, used GCC to make his opewating system (yes, Winux is an OS -- mowe on this watew). He named it 'Winux' with a wittwe hewp fwom his fwiends. Why doesn't he caww it GNU/Winux? Because he wwote it, with mowe hewp fwom his fwiends, not you. You named youw stuff, I named my stuff -- incwuding the softwawe I wwote using GCC -- and Winus named his stuff. The pwopew name is Winux because Winus Towvawds says so. Winus has spoken. Accept his authowity. To do othewwise is to become a nag. You don't want to be known as a nag, do you? (An opewating system) != (a distwibution). Winux is an opewating system. By my definition, an opewating system is that softwawe which pwovides and wimits access to hawdwawe wesouwces on a computew. That definition appwies wheweevew you see Winux in use. Howevew, Winux is usuawwy distwibuted with a cowwection of utiwities and appwications to make it easiwy configuwabwe as a desktop system, a sewvew, a devewopment box, ow a gwaphics wowkstation, ow whatevew the usew needs. In such a configuwation, we have a Winux (based) distwibution. Thewein wies youw stwongest awgument fow the unwiewdy titwe 'GNU/Winux' (when said bundwed softwawe is wawgewy fwom the FSF).

Winux awone is an opewating system that can be used in vawious appwications without any GNU softwawe whatsoevew. Embedded appwications come to mind as an obvious exampwe.

Idk about CAD but maybe these work [https://itsfoss.com/cad-software-linux/]. Using tiling window managers is only useful if you use terminals often. 3D design software is best suited for normal DEs ig. GNU/Linux is not a religion or a cult. Using Linux and providing useful feedback to the programmers ensures that the future remains spyware-free and lowers the power of tech monopolies. If there are driver issues, choose compatible hardware but I doubt there's a whole lot of driver problems. I use an old Lenovo ideapad( not a chinkpad fan just an old laptop I use ) and drivers were never a problem. Windows cannot do 90% of what GNU/Linux and other *NIX based OSes can do.

>>11896 Yeah you are right, 90% of peope arent professionals, they use pc for surfing internet and maybe typing a document. And still linux share in the casual user market is so small. Despite being free and all. That is enough of an evidence that maybe linux is still bumpy for even normal tasks. Idk about video editing, but before using inkscape, I used to hear people saying how it is one of the few softwares that can match its proprietary counterpart. Thats a big statement. A free software is competent compared to a software that is professional standard, from a multi billion dollar company. Gave it a try, and I soon realised how much of a piece of shit it was, borderline unusable. Crashes, glitches you name it. How hard it is to understand that a software by a billion dollar company is very likely to be better than a free one, simple as that.

Even my laptop, had wifi driver issues, linux didnt have drivers for my wifi module. Well there was one on github and install it and it ""worked"". Typical linux issue, the connection speed wasnt as fast as that on windows, random disconnections, speed dropping randomly etc. No normal person can put up with this shit man. You have to be masochist with lot of free time, to deal with this, going over internet, copy pasting commands, looking through forums to do a simple thing. It just isnt practical.

Threads like these are completely retarded and /g/ shit flinging reduces the credibility of FOSS software. I somewhat disagree without your statement at the end. FOSS has proven to be more secure as the whole world can audit FOSS code rather than some 100 employees. In terms of speed FOSS usually is faster as they contain no telemetry and the code is heavily criticized. If majority of the world starts using FOSS, there would be less oppression via software and more choices.

It is the applications that are not made for linux, it is never the operating system/kernel 's fault if the application is never made for linux in the first place. 100% of what is done on windows can be done on linux. The opposite is never true. You want a desktop fancier than mac? use deepin want something super suckless which uses like 200mb ram at idle? use dwm/xmonad. You want a bleeding edge package repo? install pacman you want stable stuff? install debian you want function package management? install nix wanna compile from source? always possible with linux. CS/IT windows bhangis in the end, end up using WSL2, how ironical. Most of the FOSS stuff is better than their proprietary counterparts. You shit on GIMP? There are like 50 more programs that can help you out with the editing stuff. And it is Adobe's fault for not porting photoshop for linux which in no way makes windows better. And the best part is windows faggots have to do basic tasks as compiling a C code with mingw (a shit copy of gcc) or visual studio (proprietary piece of shit), while you can have gcc and clangd in linux. Basic stuff like SSHing into a server is a major pain on windows, niggers literally have to communicate with the server's display service in order to edit a trivial file. On linux? vim goes brr. Ignorance is truly bliss.

>>11774 It's 'Linux' not 'GNU/Linux'. Following are some reasons for you to mull over, including some already answered in your FAQ. One guy, Linus Torvalds, used GCC to make his operating system (yes, Linux is an OS -- more on this later). He named it 'Linux' with a little help from his friends. Why doesn't he call it GNU/Linux? Because he wrote it, with more help from his friends, not you. You named your stuff, I named my stuff -- including the software I wrote using GCC -- and Linus named his stuff. The proper name is Linux because Linus Torvalds says so. Linus has spoken. Accept his authority. To do otherwise is to become a nag. You don't want to be known as a nag, do you? (An operating system) != (a distribution). Linux is an operating system. By my definition, an operating system is that software which provides and limits access to hardware resources on a computer. That definition applies whereever you see Linux in use. However, Linux is usually distributed with a collection of utilities and applications to make it easily configurable as a desktop system, a server, a development box, or a graphics workstation, or whatever the user needs. In such a configuration, we have a Linux (based) distribution. Therein lies your strongest argument for the unwieldy title 'GNU/Linux' (when said bundled software is largely from the FSF). Go bug the distribution makers on that one. Take your beef to Red Hat, Mandrake, and Slackware. At least there you have an argument. Linux alone is an operating system that can be used in various applications without any GNU software whatsoever. Embedded applications come to mind as an obvious example. Next, even if we limit the GNU/Linux title to the GNU-based Linux distributions, we run into another obvious problem. XFree86 may well be more important to a particular Linux installation than the sum of all the GNU contributions. More properly, shouldn't the distribution be called XFree86/Linux? Or, at a minimum, XFree86/GNU/Linux? Of course, it would be rather arbitrary to draw the line there when many other fine contributions go unlisted. Yes, I know you've heard this one before. Get used to it. You'll keep hearing it until you can cleanly counter it. You seem to like the lines-of-code metric. There are many lines of GNU code in a typical Linux distribution. You seem to suggest that (more LOC) == (more important). However, I submit to you that raw LOC numbers do not directly correlate with importance. I would suggest that clock cycles spent on code is a better metric. For example, if my system spends 90% of its time executing XFree86 code, XFree86 is probably the single most important collection of code on my system. Even if I loaded ten times as many lines of useless bloatware on my system and I never excuted that bloatware, it certainly isn't more important code than XFree86. Obviously, this metric isn't perfect either, but LOC really, really sucks. Please refrain from using it ever again in supporting any argument. Last, I'd like to point out that we Linux and GNU users shouldn't be fighting among ourselves over naming other people's software. But what the heck, I'm in a bad mood now. I think I'm feeling sufficiently obnoxious to make the point that GCC is so very famous and, yes, so very useful only because Linux was developed. In a show of proper respect and gratitude, shouldn't you and everyone refer to GCC as 'the Linux compiler'? Or at least, 'Linux GCC'? Seriously, where would your masterpiece be without Linux? Languishing with the HURD? If there is a moral buried in this rant, maybe it is this: Be grateful for your abilities and your incredible success and your considerable fame. Continue to use that success and fame for good, not evil. Also, be especially grateful for Linux' huge contribution to that success. You, RMS, the Free Software Foundation, and GNU software have reached their current high profiles largely on the back of Linux. You have changed the world. Now, go forth and don't be a nag.
