    If I had the money for 2 computers my plan was to have my everyday computer be Linux and the other a gaming computer running windows. my every day apps just run better in linux, while gaming can be don in Linux its just better supported in windows.

    • Stephen Pierce
      Stephen Pierce Il y a 3 jours

      @ThatNormalBunny that is what my current setup is. But if I could have 2 computers the Linux would be a powerful low power system, while the gaming would focus on gaming. You would not want to run a powerful gaming system 24/7, that's too much power to be constantly running unless it was in use.

    But I have a big question....how about Professional work? one thing is high-end gaming, daily tasks and other completely different thing is Audio production, Video Editing, 3d Rendering where you need all the posible resources available to speed up your work and not being wasted on stupid background processes that you won't even need as a professional. I'm actually hating windows 10 for those reasons.
    One thing is having amazing technology cheap at our disposal and more available than ever, and other thing that the fact of having 32 gb of RAM doesn't mean that it should be wasted on senseless background processes

    Haha the vast majority of these positive points are just "more people use it"... So yeah, of course everything is compatible, more apps, more games more support more drivers more everything... And it also has a Document folder **the crowd goes wild**.
    But that does not make windows any better inherently, it just highlights the circular nature of being the most popular.

      That said, I recently upgraded my late 2012 iMac with 9TB of internal storage (1TB SSD and 8TB HDD) and ac WiFi. And no, I’m not a gamer. The last time I played video games was in 1979, Asteroids. 😊

      Well, most people are not interested in building their own computers and/or maintaining a system that will likely break every MacOS update. I don’t know how old you are but if you are young then you will likely eventually reach a certain age where you don’t want to deal with such shit anymore. For me it was around 35, and it came upon me real quick and unexpectedly. Before that I used to be all into building and troubleshooting computer crap.
      Now my ridiculously reliable iMac sits on my slim desk with zero eye clutter and zero mental clutter. Life is much easier after I got rid of the PC messes I used to have.

      Depends on what you are comparing. Unfortunately the current lousy keyboard, that is hopefully and supposedly going away soon, is what really hurts the current MacBooks. They are now also too thermally constrained, but that's the case with similar thin Windows laptops.
      The only Mac I currently recommend *without reservation* is the regular iMac. There is no Windows equivalent and it’s actually an excellent deal. I recommend the i9 version. I still have the late 2012 version that I recently upgraded with a 1TB SSD and an 8TB WD Red HDD, and a current ac WiFi card. It's an i7 version and it still effortlessly does everything I need it to do. The best computer I have ever owned, and I used to build my own way back in the day.

      I'm retired military and Windows was generally trashed in the military. Windows is used by the military for the same reasons most businesses still use Windows. As a personal computer, the MacOS is a far, far, far better computer OS and experience for the vast majority of users.

    If Linus used Linux this would be "10 reasons why Linux is better". If he used a mac this could have been "10 reasons mac is better"
    Just saying. As someone who uses windows for gaming an Linux for work, it's clear that they all have up and downsides. While Windows is technologically far inferior to both Mac and Linux, Microsoft is good at marketing. It also supports the most games.
    Mac has style and comfort while not giving up mainline products such as Adobe ones, while being much more robust and reliable.
    Then Linux comes in having the technical capabilities of an alien spacecraft and a similar complexity if you want the full mileage. Sure the main user interface works just fine for normal users (KDE is great and arguably better than windows interface), but if you are not a software engineer the full power of Linux won't be at your fingertips, because for that you need the terminal. If it was supported by major software, it would be far superior for normal users, but it is not.

    Outside of gaming I would never use windows for anything. It’s still garbage. And they have no plans to put even a small percentage of their QA teams back together. The OS is nothing but a perpetual loop of having shit break, wait for Microsoft to fix it, and then when they do, something else is broken. The fact that as a programmer I have to read a tutorial just to install a unix based subsystem and STILL won’t have half the customization options or capabilities as the Mac or Linux experience is absolutely ridiculous. Fuck Microsoft, fuck windows, it’s not even close to useable in 2019
