Whats the best "just werks" Linux distro?
Mint or Xorin
raspberry pi OS on a raspberry pi 4 8gb
Silverblue. Anyone saying anything else is unemployed and using i3 on x11 and arch.
None of them "just work" in the same way that Windows or Mac does, but Ubuntu probably has the best support.
It depends on what you're using them for and (more importantly) with as in hardware. If you just install some Ubuntu clone like Linux Mint on your packaged laptop and use it to browse the web and code things you'll probably not run into many issues other than "I want to customize X; it's possible but really hard for me to figure out." But then you try to plug a chink drawing tablet in it and then you're probably gonna be running into issues.
That's the duality of Linux. It can be very easy for beginners. As long as they're VERY beginners and aren't expecting it to do much.
Silverblue just works. A lot more so than macos and windows could ever dream about.
That would be Fedora.
why do you guys actively choose something like Linux and pray that it will "just werk" instead of choosing something you know will ALWAYS work like window?
I don't get it
OP here, this was just a bait post for some laughs. Now why do people ask for a "just works" distro? They're too Windowed and MacOverdosed to learn how to change, stuff like Linux Mint is probably the closest they're gonna get. However they will still need to learn some things about the OS and learn that the terminal is actually not a super scary monster to run away from.
it iS a super scary monster to run away from, I don't wanna spend weeks learning stuff just to navigate and operate while I can easily click buttons and it'll deliver the same outcome?
Also those things are bound to be broken out of nowhere and as a result people will have a very frustrating time fixing those sudden errors.
unless it's for pure hobby or business/work, I don't see a reason to suffer like this
I do think most things should be in the guo (why the fuck does Gnome need a terminal command/extension to disable mouse acceleration?) however a lot of commands are just generally useful and extremely easy to understand with a bit of thought.
They're almost all the same
