    I’ve been on Linux for a while but this shit is starting to make my wife ask about switching over. Which is something I never thought I’d see.

      I never thought good could come out of Microsoft’s messed up ways, but here we are! Haha

      I think that + her playing baldurs gate on my computer will be what drive mine to it. Though her breaking it by updating my graphics card in order to make it run the first time definitely didn’t help.

        Just get her something like Mint which allows you to easily switch graphics drivers. Definitely the distro I tend to recommend to nvidia users. Arch or anything arch based works as well, but that requires some experience at least. Though Garuda is pretty damn simple, I’m tempted to call it noob-friendly. It’s what I use right now.

          Funny enough it was Garuda she broke and it was on Nvidia drivers. She’s absolutely been scared away from arch because of my failures to get things running for a day. I’d probably offer her a flash drive with kubuntu, mint, and pop and see what she likes.

          Funny enough she absolutely could be better at all this than I am. She’s the one who actually understands computers and has a CS degree. I’m just some dumb engineer who got pissed at windows too many times and was already super pro FOSS

      Man, I love Linux, but it’s not a replacement for windows. Like, crucify me if you must, fellow Lemmings, but the world still runs on Windows when it comes to many important everyday things.

      For me, it’s game servers and the games themselves. I can’t run half the stuff I want to run on Linux. It sucks, but this is the reality we live in.
