Why does Linux suck? -

Because I've never once had a positive experience where I've installed linux and it has worked as expected without issue.

When Windows gives me an error, I google the error code and the first result every single time is the Microsoft knowledgebase which exactly describes the problem as well as exactly what you have to do to fix it.

When Linux gives me an error, I google it and I may get something helpful, but more often than not I get an ancient forum thread. In the thread there are three or four different people who claim to have solutions and (if I'm lucky) one or two people have said "This worked, thanks bro" to one solution more than the others.

Bad representation. Most of the "Loonix personalities" are obnoxious, pseudo-intellectual cunts. The most tolerable of them all is Mental Outlaw, who's cool for a Linux 'tuber but has his head very far up his ass. Lunduke is likable until you inevitably come across the whole "privacy is bad because people made fun of me and I don't know their full name and address". It's embarassing. Makes me so frustrated I'll take quaaludes and piss on people at my local gas station.

Also Linux sucks because you can't mod Skyrim lol

For me it's usually just pissy neckbeards on Stack Exchange giving non-answers to legitimate questions.

I don't hate Linux per se, but I do hate spending more time fiddling around with all sorts of shit and then still having to go back to Windows for some random shit.
And while compatibility and user-friendliness is getting better, many open source alternatives tend to be garbage. Functional, but barely usable.
I wish I could have more use for Linux, though, I like the idea.

The only good alternative I haven't found on linux is a video editor, personally. They're all shit.

Linux is just fine for everyday use. WINE is a cointoss for any slightly obscure .exe file. I'm running Mint right now and the only problem I've had is getting this one damn porn game to run despite being Java. It wouldn't be that difficult if I weren't so damn lazy but I'm so damn lazy that I don't want to put the effort in getting this damn porn game to run.
But almost anything halfway professional will work just fine and any of those that don't run have a perfectly viable alternative.

Linux is fine. You're just a faggot

Ignoring tranny fuckery that's been going on in the last five years or so (and I'm getting this one from an older thread), one of the core problems is that there's a core group of Linux elitists who pride themselves on being elitists to the point where they don't like sharing knowledge as that "devalues" their knowledge, but it also restricts newcomers into the platform.

You can probably find any other obsolete/obscure systems where the users are just as autistic but won't be as aggressive.

Like the autismo I am, I accidentally wiped Windows 7 off an old Lenovo laptop and replaced it with Mint. It’s pretty good. I just didn’t like I couldn’t use my preferred art program in it. It’d seem pretty cool to use if I wanted to be kewler than all the other kids using windows. Until something fucks up and I’m searching aimlessly on old Linux forums from 2009 trying to find out how to get the fucker to work.

All the desktop environments I have tried aren't nearly as polished as windows. When I have tried running some games full screen tabbing out usually makes the X window systems to sperg out and freeze the entire system. The only options are to restart or switch virtual console to terminate and restart the frozen apps.

Running linux is constant tweaking because everything is by default shit and it is up to you to make it usable. If you enjoy changing settings and not being able to run all the software windows can linux is for you. The only way linux can run ms office is in the homosexual online form.
