Its really a great fucking time to be alive on linux. Not only freesync is there in latest kernel but hybernation encryption is going to be a thing. This is fucking amazing.

Keep it up guys. LETS SHOW WINDOWS THAT WE CAN DO MUCH BETTER.
Oh wait we already did few years ago LOOOOL

    *calmly watches from Windows space as the kernel locks on basic drivers and fucks up on updates and graphical mouse based DEs are a UX nightmare in general*

    *also as Linux fans cry about getting features later than Windows and call it a revolution when they finally do get them*

    Yeah, bring it on.

    @Haxk20 look at your sample sizes mate. Linux is tiny in the desktop world and there are a gigantic number of people for whom Windows works just fine.

    I wouldn't trust a Linux in, say, a studio environment unless I had something like enterprise grade support from Red Hat.

    Besides, I consider myself decent at both OSes and have been at this for a fair old while. I've definitely suffered more installation and configuration and driver woes on Linux.

    @RememberMe I never said thats not true. Im just saying that for most people linux would do just fine and people would enjoy their PC hell lot more with normal use on linux.

    @Haxk20 no, I really don't think it's quite ready for that yet. As an experiment I tried to get my mom to use Linux for a while. Mint, too. Good, stable OS, right? Nope. Not on that particular laptop apparently. Crapped itself in a week. And it's a four year old laptop with reasonably supported tech. I can't have my Mom's work be on hold because of stuff like the keyboard inexplicably failing to work. So back to Windows it goes.

    Believe me I'd love a good FOSS OS and ecosystem but right now Linux isn't quite there yet for many, many, many use cases. Mostly to do with software and general focus of Linux on stuff like servers and embedded, which is fine honestly, it's great for that.

    Till then I'll just use whichever OS is best for that particular use case. So servers and embedded, Linux. General dev, Windows and Linux both. Everything else, Windows.

    And yet my system fails to start up as it's trying to load the swap as a hiberfile, fails to do so within 3 minutes, and then takes another 2 to even mount the root partition. On an SSD.

    FreeSync isn't particularly the thing to be proud about when comparing to Windows.

    @RememberMe By your first comment with the first paragraph, I think you're talking about Linux but I've had those experiences on windows back when I still used it so I'm confused, is this one about windows or Linux?

    Anyhow, we do use Linux at work as main (and only really) OS for our desktops and laptops. Production environment pretty much empowering our entire infrastructure.

    @linuxxx I know it's ambiguous yeah.
    I meant Linux.

    We've had this discussion before, so by now I'm convinced that it's something to do with me, but (desktop) Linux continues to be nothing more than borderline stable while Windows is rock solid. Idk. And I've been using Linux a fair bit for about 5 years now, pretty sure I know a thing or two. In any case, much more than someone with zero experience, which is kind of the point here.

    I still use Linux because dev work, but have to keep firefighting random problems every week (WiFi, audio, graphics, rabdom boot fails, you name it).

    Btw, that whole getting-my-mom-to-try-Linux thing was inspired by your mentions of doing similar stuff. I was actually hoping it'd work out :/
