Why Windows Is Better Than Linux

Filed under
Linux
Microsoft

Don’t be fooled by the title. I use Linux. I avoid Windows. However, all is not rosy in the Linux world. I am active on many Linux help forums. I know the types of problems that most new Linux users face. This is my list of things that could make Linux better, courtesy of Windows users that I have encountered.

Pre-installation

This is the big one. Windows comes pre-installed. Everything is working perfectly at the time of purchase. The user does not have to do anything, but use it. Things may go downhill from there, but at least the user starts off with a clean slate.

Often times new users to Linux face barriers. Most can be overcome, but in a few cases, not. The question is, will these users go to the time and effort?

Windows is great

Windows is great as long as you don't connect it to the internet.

  • Introducing Stremio, a More Complete and Powerful Popcorn Time Alternative
    Stremio is an application built with Electron that streams and plays movies, TV shows, Youtube channels, and TV channels, from torrents. Sounds familiar?
  • mt-st project new homepage
    A short public notice: mt-st project new homepage at https://github.com/iustin/mt-st. Feel free to forward your distribution-specific patches for upstream integration!
  • letsencrypt support in propellor
    I'm using the reference letsencrypt client. While I've seen complaints that it has a lot of dependencies and is too complicated, it seemed to only need to pull in a few packages, and use only a few megabytes of disk space, and it has fewer options than ls does. So seems fine. (Although it would be nice to have some alternatives packaged in Debian.)
  • New release: usbguard-0.4
    I’m not dead yet. And the project is still alive too. It’s been a while since the last release, so it’s time to do another. The biggest improvements were made to the rule language by introducing the rule conditions and to the CLI by introducing a new command, usbguard, for interacting with a running USBGuard daemon instance and for generating initial policies.
