My last Windows computer was a custom build from when I was in high school. All I can remember for sure is it had Windows XP Pro SP2 and an AMD Athlon 3200+ I believe.. The rest I cant quite remember.

For me Ubuntu does a few things too fast. Upstart, systemd, Unity desktop... It's way more different than just a Debian with more current packages. Even worse is Mint. Currently I am more convinced by Arch linux which also has their own flavor but it's a rolling distro and do a lot of things right, in my opinion.


The systemd situation was badly handled. It's the same thing with the Mir vs Wayland problem. Unity is another thing, I don't see a problem with it. Linux already has a lot of different interfaces, so another one isn't a problem. And being a Gnome based distro, Gnome 3 broke all their usabity for years before fixing it, so doing in their own way was probably a good decision. But upstart was just a case of being stuborn.

The main reason I like Ubuntu is because it receives the best support in softwares. Most apps will have a DEB package or are in its repositories. It's easier to get develper tools on it, which is a number one priority for me. In general, it's well balanced if you aren't willing to fuss with things. I'm wanting to try Arch for quite some time. I love rolling release distros since my time with Aptosid. I tried Fedora, but I found it quite unstable and more like a beta for Red Hat Enterprise. Mandriva was awesome, but it got discontinued. I used it on my desktop, that was the only machine without Ubuntu, but since them I ended up with it on all my PCs.



Windows 7 upgrading to Windows 10 ounce it releases.



We all know Sony domination is a real thing and there is nothing Microsoft or Nintendo can do about it....

Windows 7 on the desktop, XP on the old laptop. (Both PCs have Kubuntu too).
On my mom's desktop (my old one) XP gave problems with the Wi-Fi USB key, so I upgraded her to Kubuntu only, she didn't notice the difference, except that now she can browse better, without the connection always falling.

I don't want any of these but then I know that Linux has the mentality to introduce stuff that is not Unix. I never had a problem with the init-system, still it will be gone soon. I never had a problem with Xorg, still many want to get rid of it.

I guess I would better go with BSD in the long run but then again "packages" there are also not the most current, leave aside hardware support.

Ubuntu is of course just famous now and the "go to"-distribution and I used Xubuntu a lot in the past and could live with it quite good.

Fedora was never my cup of tea. I don't like RPM and yum is just awful slow, while they at least have the delta-rpm-system.

Mandriva I never tried because it was french and they say "ordinateur" to computer which is just... Well, I didn't try it because it was french ;)



Own most of them but still using xp, windows 7 and 8, you would be surprised how many people are still running xp.
I like 7the best but I think 8 is not that bad, having used 10 I like it a lot but 7 is still better



old skool

Using Windows 8.1 right now and very satisfied with it. It's like W7 but faster.

Man, I would love if Debian (and derivates) really went serious about delta packages. Mandriva was a enjoyable distro and they had their nice control panel, but now unfortunately it's dead.

Windows 8.1

Will be my last Windows, I'm sick of it. Problems EVERYWHERE and I don't know what the fuck is going on. Sometimes it won't recognize my Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard. Sometime, the damn thing just turns automatically on when I'm carrying it, draining the battery to death. I want to take it out in the Starbuck's or something and it's dead!

Sometimes it just scales randomly everything. The menu becomes tiny as shit, same as websites. so I scale dat shit back only to find giant ass stuff the next time I turn the damn thing on! I don't know what the hell is going on. Then there's the shitty Touchscreen driver. Yeah, may not be Windows' fault in the end, but it still sucks ass! Every now and then it just randomly closes my windows, because it recognizes a touch or something. I cleaned the screen like there's no tomorrow and it still won't work properly. So I deactivated it in the devices manager. I can't use my computer with all featurs because the software sucks balls, well, halle-fucking-lujah!

Before you ask, the system is scanned for Malware and AdWare and is always updated.

Oh yeah, and then there are those stupid fucking auotmatic updates. The thin just decides that it wants to restart my system. No asking the user, no warning whatsoever. Just restart, here, I'll close all your programs so you can't save anything. kthxbye! It really pisses me off. I know I can deactivate automatic updates, but I do want them. I just want to decide myself when to make a restart. You know, like it was with Windows 7? Or Windows XP? Or friggin' Windows 98 nearly 20 years ago?!

Well, yeah, I'm not too happy with it. So I'm gonna go Mac all the way, baby! =P

Sorry, I think I got drifted away a little, buuuuuut all the frustration just came out suddenly.


I'm guessing you're using it on a tablet?
