    Linux is a whole different OS. You have to RELEARN everything from it.

    I've used Linux for 3 months then went back to Windows because I couldn't find any point of using it.

    Hi folks

    when was the last time you could keep a system up and running for months at a time 24 hrs a day without needing a whole slew of security updates, bug fixes, and the inevitable restart.

    Last time I re-booted my NAS was months ago and that was only because I needed to upgrade the hardware. (New Video card and more RAM). With HDD's these can be hot swapped easily enough and software RAID works impeccably.

    Where's RAID on Windows -- you either have to get a usually poor hardware card - consumer grade ones are usually a PITA and the nearest equivalent in Windows to software RAID are Storage spaces, the unreliability and easily breakability of them are legendary. Very easy to lose data using those things and often switching Windows releases causes severe problems with them.

    It really depends on what you do most of the time -- game playing is probably the hardest to replicate in Linux but almost everything else is available and usually free -- you just have to work a bit harder at it. Actually not a bad thing --if some of the developers in Ms had a bit of Linux experience they wouldn't have got these latest insider release rollouts so royally hosed up.

    Cheers

    I agree 100% Linux just works. I never had a problem at all with Linux and it is not that hard to learn. I had 9 Distros on a 250Gb SSD and every one of them ran great.

    Not my experience at all, in fact I have win 10 install (OS only, all application in second drive) circa 27 Gb, ubuntu circa 8 Gb (not so bloated after all I think), application starts much faster than in windows 10, compression decompression also, and i'm talking Ubuntu (the universally defined bloated and slow, not that I have to agree or disagree on this, I don't care).
    With linux you have an ecosystem at your fingertips, not even vaguely remotely comparable to windows 10.

    Lunduke show is a show and not something i would found my evaluation on, it may be fun to watch nothing more.
    It's strange that you find linux slow, maybe it's something I do not use and did not noticed (?)
    There's a difference between slow and slower.

    On my T430 laptop, with Core i5-3320M @ 3.3GHz (4 cores), 8GB memory, NVS 5400M with NVIDIA 390.77 driver, Samsung SSD 850 250GB for Windows 10 and OCZ Vertex 3 GB for Linux Mint 19, Linux does feel sluggish when compared to Windows 10, but even so, I wouldn't call Mint slow.

    The difference in performance might be due to using the OCZ SSD in hard drive caddy case in place of the CD/DVD drive. I am too lazy to look up, if the there's an interface performance limitation for the caddy. I'll probably follow slicendice's advise and install Clear Linux on another older SSD drive...

    Lunduke show is funny, but the guy certainly has valid points as well...

    Perhaps, but I'm thinking Linux would have more problems if it were the leading OS in the world and had as many software culprits gunning for it as Windows has now.

    It is the leading OS in the world, but not in the desktop.
