    I put Ubuntu on my old s***ty laptop and that thing is moving hella fast now. I messed around with Linux distros in the past but now I think I see the truth now.

    Might have to switch to Ubuntu on my main desktop (or at least dual boot).

    Until you find out your driver doesn't work because Nvidia/Realtek whatever else doesn't give a s*** about open source code

    So you have to follow some weird tutorial that you randomly googled and have to put a bunch of s*** on the terminal without even fully understanding it

    Or when you MUST use some specific software for work or school but the sw company doesn't give a s*** about Linux

    Or when you find out that Google still doesn't officially support hardware acceleration video decoding on Chrome for Linux

    Or what about when your notebook battery lasts 30% less because some hardware piece or the BIOS or something else isn't fully optimized for Linux

    ....Yeah I guess I'll back to Windows 10 smh

    Btw in a perfect world I would be using Manjaro KDE tbh

    imagine buying a laptop with a realtek network card 馃あ

    buggy trash

    Nvidia is such a pain in the ass also, but I've had less stability issues with Nvidia gpus in Windows compared to AMD gpus these days

    I dual-booted Pop OS on my main desktop which has a RTX 2070 and I've had no problems for the most part. Had to download some tweaks because animations were acting weird but for the most part good.

    Can't speak for the Realtek stuff tho and I use Firefox on Linux.

    Firefox (great browser btw) also doesn't officially support video acceleration (VAAPI) atm

    That means even a YouTube video won't be able to fire up the GPU and will have to give the task to the CPU with software decoding only

    I think only Brave has VAAPI on Linux, plus some distros that come with a patched Chromium build

    Linux is the goat. Once u get comfortable look into some window managers, such as i3, and learn some scripting so u can customize ur machine to fit your use case

    this is pretty much the thing that holds me back from running linux as a main os

    i used to drag and drop these 7 sorted folders so three different drives once every two weeks. Wrote a bash script to do it all for me

    Linux is great for servers. Not the same as a desktop OS but still great.
