COULD IT BE TRUE?More Tech Discussions ➤ https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLFr3c472Vstwe0Yk43UDnpqib5ReTwaJ-Subscribe Here ➤ https://www.youtube.com/user/ThioJoe?sub_confirmation=1We always hear about the debate between Mac and Windows, but there's another one that you might not hear about as often, which is Linux vs Windows. Linux is is actually a very well developed operating system, and some people argue it is the best OS, even better than Windows. But is that true? This video goes over the advantages and disadvantages of Linux compared to Windows.~~~⇨ http://Instagram.com/ThioJoe⇨ http://Twitter.com/ThioJoe⇨ http://Facebook.com/ThioJoeTV▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
Yes. With the caveat : Linux is where I work; Windows is where i play
Linux and Windows are tools, Mac is a tool as well so imo at least -none are the best at everything. Its all about what you want and whichever one you think will do what you want the best.
My best solution is to use a live Linux distro, such as Knoppix for internet (best safety) and Windows for offline (software that you can't have on Linux)
Simple... Windows 10 home takes everything you do, every key stroke and all input and sends it in. windows 10 home updates as it likes, when it like and you can not stop it... users try with this or that, but at some points you almost have to mess it up before that happens where windows 10 pro now stops all that. But if your looking at pro then your dropping $100 more on the program...
linux is better than joe for sure
What if I want to install something that’s worth while but not we’ll know like space station 13?
It depends. For gaming, Windows is way better. If you got more IQ and want an obeying computer, go for Linux.
This is bullshit, dude.
Dependency hell ? Then Dockerize it ! ;)
You never heard of DLL hell? ;) That's been around for years and years, before dependency hell.
you said you dont have to restart after an update on linux. thats true, you dont have to. But its always better if you do. plus it doesn't take all day like windows does. and with wine, you got to watch out because it lets you run some windows programs, that includes windows viruses/malware. most likely wont be as destructive but it would still run most likely.
linux > windows
While I concede it's typically a bigger issue in Linux, Windows software often still has prerequisite software (dependencies) that can interfere with offline installs (often directx, .net, c++ redistr, etc).... Still, you make great points. I'm certainly a Linux and GNU fan, but I can't rationally advise everyone to abandon Windows completely.... at least not yet.
If you have Comcast, you won't be able to play or stream video off of their website.
when i first started using windows i did'nt know how to use that come to think of it when i first got a pc did'nt know how to use it now i build my own help friends with their problems i guess what im trying to say is if you want to move to linux go for it most peeps dont know how to use some thing till they learn yes you will mess up but its all part of the learning curve
Linux is useless for home users if you make music, play games, make videos and so on. So it is useless for most home users. If somebody tells you otherwise they are liars and fraudsters. Many retarded Linux fanboys will lie you straight in the face...
Everything is available in AUR
Linux does not force you to download updates, you can download and install any time you want, they show you that updates available not in annoying way like windows (well, recently windows just start download them with out any warning), linux allow you to choose what you want to install of all the updates they offering, after downloading if required to restart game, pc restarts same speed as when not updating
there is no better software than linux when it comes to programming i am a programmer so i love linux
As long as you are fine with stability issues (especially KDE and GNOME), performance issues (especially nVidia graphics), hardware issues (forget about managing Apple devices, even linux-based Android is terrible), regressions, bugs, lack of standardization, fragmentation, unwarranted & excessive variety, no common direction or vision among different distros, the lack of cooperation between open source developers, a lot of rapid changes, unstable APIs, the lack of real compatibility and last but not least software issues (no AAA-gaming, no Photoshop, no Office, no DAWs, no iTunes), feel free to use Linux on your desktop. Don't get me wrong, I am using Linux alongside with Windows, but I am far from using it solely. Even more frustrating: using latest hardware makes your experience on Linux worse (again: f*ck you nVidia).
