            It’s better to start simple otherwise everyone will just go back to windows. Ubuntu is as close to working out of the box as possible.
            Actually there’s not much holding it back(with kde), just the autistic defaults. Why is vsync disabled by default? Why is touchpad tap disabled by default? Why can’t you sudo dolphin?

                People want to work/game/browse whatever, not mess with settings. The defaults should make the computer work like windows which is what most want, the rest can go do their autistic configurating like normal.

                  Wintoddlers constantly browse pornhub.com, goom and defragment and ccleaner their shit desktops then cope about having to do something as mundane as pacman -S program
                  You mentally ill scrotebrains cope about terminal while digging through regedit all day coping about something not working or your garbage OS rebooting and autoupdating without asking, run meme debloat scripts, and can’t stop coping
                  If you scrotebrained grifters killed yourselves, nobody would have a problem setting up tgeir system however they want because they wouldn’t be lead to believe that anything that’s not canonical is unusable, have a nice day chud

                    No, it is you who is coping. You either deliver what the majority wants, or no one will use your freaking system. This is coming from someone who is switching to kubuntu now. Most people aren’t willing or able to go through these things. However, the point is it IS good once you set everything up, so why can you not just make it good by default?

                        I am setting it up and getting used to it right now. I will probably be able to delete windows dualboot in a few weeks.

                        As someone who likes linux and dislikes windows/mac, you should aim to make it easier to setup and still keep the customizability and freedom so that people are compelled to make the switch. But I am not surprised in the slightest that someone willing to do all of this coding for free is also too autistic to make the system more accessible

                        either figure out how to read or buy new hardware and install windows 11, Ubuntu is just as bad as windows, except with none of the redeeming qualities that windows has, if you can’t use anything but ubuntu you should just stick to windows instead of coping

                        Nice! I just used Kubuntu full-time ever since my Windows hard drive died from fall damage in my Thinkpad.
                        My main reason for sticking with Ubuntu for the past 3 years is the massive amount of documentation online. Every program/issue I’ve had so far has had a well-written guide on solving it.

                        Packages readily available, forum posts explaining how to fix errors almost as plentiful as for windows, not absolutely disgusting by default.
                        Even video games work thanks to proton. And it IS faster. Uses much less RAM.

              yeah, seems like the likely alternative. last I checked it didn’t fully support c++17, but that’ll hopefully change before I have to move over — I absolutely need 17 for a couple of projects, but am not planning on moving to 20 anytime soon.

      When Vista came out and was too bloated for most people to run, they stuck with XP. This is what’s going to happen now. Windows 11 adoption will be very slow and people will stick with 10 until 2025, possibly even forcing Microsoft to support it for longer than planned like what happened with XP.

        At least. They may extend it beyond that if they see that there’s a large number of computers left on it at the end of support. The only ones who care about updates are enterprises anyway. Most computers on the planet never see an update after they leave Best Buy.

      My PC has 32GB of ram, an RTX 3090, and the latest generation Samsung NVMe SSD. Yet I don’t meet the requirements because I’m using 2nd gen Ryzen and don’t have TPM. The TPM shit basically means this is a laptop OS only. Who the fuck is going to buy a TPM chip for a desktop? Does it even come on any motherboards by default? It’s such a shit requirement for a new OS. Its like they are saying we don’t care if your specs are complete shit, even if you’re using the latest SHInTel i3 @ 0.1ghz (boost mode, actual speed 0.01ghz). So long as you have TPM, you can use it.

      My surface pro 2017 with a m3-7y30 cpu can’t update to win 11 but a celeron 3867U can.
      It’s my secondary machine but I’m still salty about the arbitrary cutoff given that every other spec is good enough.
      Wanted to try Win 11 but I don’t want to enable TPM or secure boot and reinstall windows again on my main machine.

      Microsoft is eventually going to backpedal due to backlash, either by dropping the dumbass requirement or supporting Windows 10 well into the future. They’ve done similar things with past failed operating systems.

      >Me’s a piece of shit
      Microsoft continues to support 98 alongside Me well into the 00’s, backports a few of Me’s features to 98 and buries it with XP just a year later to save face
      >Vista’s a piece of shit
      Microsoft continues XP support well into the 2010’s as a result, released a new Service Pack for XP after Vista was already out, backports a few features from Vista to XP if I remember correctly
      >8’s a piece of shit
      Microsoft continues to support Windows 7 well into the future, offers free Win10 upgrade to 7 users as well as 8 since 8 adoption rates were very low
      >11’s a piece of shir
      Microsoft already talking about backporting features like DirectStorage to Windows 10, mounting pressure from Valve to make Linux a better gaming OS with sucxessful results already resulting in Anticheat systems no-longer strictly depending on Windows, Steam Deck could widely expand Linux adoption rate if it proves successful

      W11 is irrelevant until W10 EOL and there are already various workarounds. If you kids spent the time you waste bitching on learning such things you’d have nothing to bitch about.

        A guy just walked today in on my IT because he was told by the higher ups he couldn’t keep with his perfectly functioning Nanami.

      Good. Stagnation is bad in industry. Whenever an industry sits on their ass and consumers dont change their hardware, the industry stagnates.

      Skylake desktops are still going to be usable after W10 EoS in 2025, pretty anti-environmental move. Honestly though people refusing to move to Linux on ancient hardware are just normies or stubborn.

      since the restrictions are for no reason, they will probably lift them later or people will make workarounds

      It’s sad because most of the ‘recent’ PCs support TPM 2.0 but the normies won’t know how to enable it in Bios.

      Good. Normscrotes need to stay away from ancient stinkpad so their prices don’t go up.

      How do Microsoft always fuck up bros? Is it unfair to blame Microsoft because they’re just taking advantage of scrotebrains like any good business does, should my hatred be aimed at normalscrotes and consoomers?
