>And you're telling me you can't afford a $200 PC from the past 5 years that will run it seamlessly?
linux/bsd you can run on literally anything. not windows.
>Sell your 15 year old Thinkpads
the good ones aren't even 10 years old yet.
>Have you anything to hide?
>windows is quite stable
I've had crashes and bugs on windows more times than I can count. I've never had linux crash on me, and I use rolling release distros.
>Linux, on the other hand, presents you with hours of work
Linux just works dude, ever tried linux mint or debian? Easy install and configuration. Ubuntu is coming out with a new installer too.
you're right that linux audio is a mess.
>a lack of hardware and application support
wrong there. more hardware and applications work with linux than windows by FAR. you have no idea the amount of software out there for linux, it seems. Also there's wine for practical windows applications. Meanwhile on windows you have to literally virtualize a linux instance to get applications working. LOL
> You're paying for consistent updates and almost full support for any and every application in existence
I'm sorry, but last I checked I couldn't run most of the stuff I use on linux in windows. also I use linux free and I get regular updates to my kernel.
> The user experience and interface is only beaten by Mac OS from Apple, and is lightyears ahead of anything Linux could bring to the table.
you're going to look at pic related and say linux doesn't come close? you must have down syndrome.
> Stallman is a foot-eating pedophile. Separate the art from the artist.
Code isn't art. Stallman isn't linux. Microsoft is windows. Next.
> It won't waste your time with hundreds of customizable options and features. It just works.
Wasting my time with having the ability to tailor an operating system to exactly the way I want it? If someone has a preference for their workstation on windows they're SOL. The idea of being customizable isn't that everyone HAS to customize their pc to exactly the way they want it to, it's that those who want to have the choice. retard.
>The people who use windows only care about the applications inside of it, not stupid crap like sub-pixel rendering and kernel parameters.
I use linux and I don't care about that shit either. Don't have to.
>"Normal" people are happy, fulfilled, and have their heads on straight. You on the other hand have spent countless hours behind a screen, posting on strictly anonymous websites, angry about the state of the world and how you're so much better than everyone else.
I'm happy, I spend countless hours behind my screen, and I've never recommended linux/bsd to anyone.
>There is literally no reason to use Linux. It had its purpose, but the functions it can perform are now but a subset of the functions Windows can perform.
The purpose of linux is freedom and power, something you don't get with windows. Also 99% of servers run linux/bsd, how could linux be useless if it's a superior server OS?
