I just honestly dont see any REAL advantages to using linux over windows.
Sure, its more secure, windows is secure enough. And when you say linux runs games better than windows.. Thats a lie, because you need wine to run anything worth playing.
I dont hate linux, but if you can run windows.. Why not? There is alot more application development and support.
then you are obviously not a linux user
using linux on one computer because its a free solution does not automatically mean you understand all the benefits of linux
most windows users wouldnt think twice about using a command line, most experienced linux users highly prefer a command line
i can get stuff done much faster via command line in linux than i ever have been able to in windows, plus i can do many things in linux command line with all the sweet CLI tools that are impossible in windows
even some windows users would prefer to use cygwin and get a linux style command line in windows when they have to run it, some of the tools are there but not all by any means
then ofc you get into the benefits of things like package managers, and security updates (aside from the already secure logic behind everything linux will get security updates much more frequently as soon as the fixes are done) and then you get small advantages that mean a lot to some people like the ability for 100% uptime
the list goes on and on...
i just dont understand how a gaming in linux thread always attracts mindless windows fanboi trolls :/ they must feel threatened i guess...
