Found this, but not sure if it applies to us

    true I would add: "you should understand this seeing that 90% of your market share comes from windows coming pre-installed on everything. but if you really want to corner the rest of the market maybe try windows toilet paper. then again it would be some shity toilet paper."

    How likely am I to recommend devRant? I definitely would if there was someone to recommend it to... 10/10

    Except when we're talking about Linux. Seriously, you should try it, start with something very user-friendly, ubuntu or mint, seriously man, you should try it!

    I am not like that, not 100% of the time at least. 😁

    I always have these convos with my friends about which OS to use -- Said no damn human on this Earth

    I'd say a good 40% of DevRant talks about operating systems on a daily basis. Some of us talk about it hourly!

    When the subject cones up, for 95% of the people, I'm going to recommend Win 10, because it's simple, and doesn't require on-site tech support. The last thing I want to do is recommend something that they are going to call me for support for.

    @iAmNaN See your point yeah! I'd personally never recommend windows or Mac but that's because I personally can't recommend someone a system that goes against my very principles so yeah.... (On the other hand, my family runs a combo of Ubuntu and Elementary os and that works very well!)

    Why can't the world live on bare necessities and be contended with Linux even games now are coming on steam which is bolt out of the blue . I spent my years playing battle of wesnoth on Ubuntu and was happy with it.

    I have win 10 at home but personally prefer Ubuntu over win. I don't have grudge for a win dev but frustration against the licensing and updates of windows.

    @wesaka I went directly os x - > win 8->.1->10->arch

    @inukinator Mine was like this:

    XP - 7 - 10 - 7 - Ubuntu - Mint

    Thinking about Debian now, wanna save arch for later, one step at a time 😁

    Where is @Microsoft
    I got no grudge against windows

    P.S I think it's their official account

    We love Linux too, but at the end it will be an operating system for technical people or developers only, which is a very tiny group comparing to the average users population.

    So talking about desktop operating system market, Windows will always be dominant !!!

    @Microsoft Truly agree with that, I think you can't get everything in one os, I love ms products, windows for gaming and designing and for everything else linux

    I love vs-code too thanks to you for bringing it up :)

    I think we should respect every os.

    @JSn1nj4 tho, I really hate people who just click "you have won the lottery" ads on porn sites and complain about security issues, speaking about the comment about users' fault for viruses
