    what he said ^


    It is obsolete since it's not supported by Microsoft anymore.
    Which means, no more security updates. So your system might be more vulnerable to malware and stuff

    unpopular opinion: Why is Linux still a thing? I respect the older Os’s like in the 1990’s, heck, I even used a 1990’s version of Redhat, and I respect them, but now, they look like Fischer price knockoffs of Windows, just with slightly different looks. And before you say,” well winux isn’t bwoated with features”, what if those features are to not loose files, like the Windows change log or fast startup, I use those all the time. I also used a modern ReactOS Pc and it was a nightmare to me, at least macOS has a unique look, but with these Linux OS’s, they look a heck of a lot like Windows, too much in fact that they feel like ripoffs, and I’m not talking about iOS or Android OS’s, gaming is an absolute nightmare and it’s really cheap looking. I know I just triggered 99% of the community, but I have this feeling, and please respect it. Thanks.

    For some reason, Windows requires a quarterly reinstall for me to function properly. Sometimes it just never starts up again, or just ends up bugging out so bad it needs a reinstall.

    I moved to Linux for a few months, and it was some of my best experiences with computing. It was so simple and nag/bloat free. Best of all though: free

    I was able to play BeamNG etc through proton, though because of the way things like that work, it did run a bit slower. I eventually moved back to Windows not because Linux sucked or anything, but just because I've been developing software in a Windows ecosystem for years now and started to miss it.

    Tl;dr: Linux is a great OS and a would be a pretty good replacement for Windows if there were more software support.

    I respect your opinion, and thanks for respecting mine:)
    You can use Linux, just I always will use Windows.

    I'm pretty sure Windows 7 is going or will go out of style soon. That's all I can say about that. Correct me if I'm wrong.
    Fisher Price is a company that makes toys for little kids. Of course it's possible that they could go on to make a 1910s car or a computer, but those products will probably be built out of cheap plastic and an adult probably wouldn't be able to fit in the 1910s car. Heck, the company could end up making a Thomas train the size of a university campus, but it would probably be built out of cheap crap, too. As for the computer, it would probably be a dummy computer made specifically for little kids and it probably wouldn't be a real computer. It would be more like a toy then an actual computer, so it wouldn't have Instagram or YouTube on it. The 1910s car would probably feel like a toy, too. A great user that I've sadly mentioned too much for my own good would probably hate the 1910s Fisher Price car with a passion. It would probably built out of plastic and it might even look like a block of cheese.

    So yeah, I bet my lunch money these products would be made out of cheap plastic. End of post.

    They are, they look so much like Windows with just a tiny bit changed, so you’re right.

    I mean, imagine a Fisher Price computer and how cheaply made it would be.

    I really have no idea what you're talking about here though. If youre basing all your assumptions on ReactOS, that's not even Linux.
    Look at the most common Distros, like Ubuntu. They're very much their own style.

    But it still reminds me too much of Windows, I am really just bothered by Linux nowadays, I also think I’ve used some of the other Linux operating systems, I can’t remember which one though. Nonetheless, there are too many, what if you want an OS for gaming and working? I really don’t want to start a flame war. Would it be too much too ask to please end this?
    Edit: this is the pile of crap I used and i f*cking hated it
