Everything worked out well with my first distro. Linux mint is great.
The learning curve is not steep. If anything it's stepping out of the "familiar zone" and acquainting oneself with a new OS (much like I would have to do with Windows 10).
In my opinion, the opposite is true.
I care about gaming, and the more people on Linux the better.
Although I let others make their own choices, as I have made mine.
(And I don't try to actively influence their decisions for my benefit)
Glad it's working out for you, i don't pretend to be the most tech savvy person, so maybe that heavily influenced my dislike for the versions of Linux i tried. I don't remember specifics, but some really mundane things i could do on Windows drove me nuts in Linux. It reminded me of right-clicking on a mac.
Linux may well be better for gaming, but we'll never know. I'm a realist, and i want to have the best experience with games now, not in the very distant future. Getting PC gamers on to one platform and API is far more likely with Windows 10 and DX12 than it is with Linux and Vulcan. Maybe if Valve actually committed to Steam machines and made them in-house as a console competitor it would of had a better chance, but even Valve didn't seem to be very confident.

Whatever floats your boat, we have no choice but to agree to disagree.
If you read my posts, you would see that not only once I mentioned how Windows 10 should be distributed. Including the five points in my last little wall of text, which I will not bother clarifying anymore than that.
I hardly count what you wrote as an answer to delivering Windows 10 to the masses, you just moaned about the things they are going to be doing, and your solutions are more along the lines of what they are doing currently.
Sometimes giving people to much choice is a bad thing, giving some granny the choice of doing this or that can be intimidating, i know mine is like that, she always feels like she'll break something..
I hope Microsoft just tells her what to do and makes the choices for her, it will save me the headache.
Not to mention by the time this all happens, people like us on OCN would of had the better part of a year to do it the way we want.Edited by GorillaSceptre - 10/30/15 at 12:30pm
