Linux has the OOM killer and if disabled it doesn't allow you to run out of memory (but refusing to allocate more than physical free memory).
Windows enables swap by default.
macOS can't do swap properly and happily allows you to keep allocating memory, if you're <16 MB free your system freezes.

You're preaching to the choir. Been using Linux over the past 9 years and it has progressed lightyears in that time. It went from a server OS that could be modded to function as a desktop OS to a full fledged, feature rich system that can be honestly as user friendly as macOS but with more freedom.

These Windows VS Linux war thread...

Personally, I don't think Linux looks good, at least not default. I keep seeing these "rice" threads. 90 % of them have minimalistic + not practical look, ugly font, disturbing wallpaper, too small font, bad contrast and the list goes on.

if you don't sit and rice your desktop, you either sit in Vim or Emacs, programming, while an good IDE can do the same job.

>No bloatware
Honestly, not much bloatware in W10, and the few things that comes with the installation you can remove through powershell.
>Working driver support for almost all systems.

> Safest os
It's up to the user, many people have no clue about security on their personal computer.
>Stable as fuck
Depends what you mean, but Debian is the most stable, yes. Not as stable as Windows or Mac though.
>Not fucked in the ass by the nsa
Not true, but Linux people are the most paranoid and stressed people on earth when it comes to these things. I wonder what Linux people do, to be so scared of Windows and Mac. Must be something bad. Don't be on the internet either, they can track you there too. Or don't use PC at all.

I think Linux or Windows or Mac is more or less personal preference.

That's the other way around, with a package manager you get the dependencies you need, in Windows you get every version of every .dll every developer has ever used, because they always bundle their .dll in case of incompability, hence the classical 'ever growing Windows partition even after you've uninstalled the program.

>Only for very broad definitions of 'working'.

Working means working, Linux runs on everything, because it has the best hardware support. Microsoft is proud when they get one of their versions running on ARM.

>Nope, unless you mean console-only.

Yes it's faster than Windows, that's why Linux owns server, compute+render cluster/farms, super computers, even gpu computing.

>No OS offers protection from stupid users.

This I agree with.

>Most of which is/are shit. Anything worthwhile also exists for Windows, and more.

Most games on Windows are shit as well, but you are right that for gaming Windows is superior.

>As long as you are not running xorg.

xorg is stable, it's a old big system, but it's stable as fuck.

>If only you knew...

NSA has exploits for Linux systems for sure, but they are undoubtable fewer and more likely to be fixed on Linux than on Windows which is a joke, not to mention that Linux is a harder target, in order to effectively exploit it you'd need to find something in either the Kernel or glibc, since those are pretty much the only standard components across all distros.

Finally running Windows is basically being a rape victim, you are running adware disguised as an operating system, literally the OS for sheep.

Of course it is, Windows DE is a fucking ad platform.

LOL where are the fucking NSA exploits of systemd, or even ANY exploits. systemd has been around for many years now, has over a 1000 people looking and working on the code (due to it being open source!) which makes it a shit ton harder to hide an exploit.

Windows meanwhile is as ripe as ever, as shown by the latest worm fucking systems across the globe, and Microsoft is in NSA's pocket seeing that they only patched Windows 10 despite being warned of this worm, and only patched Windows 10 in mars, a year after being told that there was an exploit, why ? Because NSA wanted to keep it.

The Windows 10 ad platform is the biggest pleb filter to ever hit the tech sphere, you really have to be technically retarded to use it other than in a fucking VM.

>usable
>without configuration
Using a DE is the same as configuring it.
There is currently no way to get your computer to read your mind, but changing a few hotkeys to make certain features more accessible and remove others is very easy.

If I had to use a window manager without any configuration, I would probably use kwin.
It has decent defaults, but is obviously much better if you configure it.
As for DE, I guess it depends on how recent you want your system.
If I were using a rolling distro, I would go with KDE, but if I were stuck on something more stable, I would go for mate (still with kwin, don't know if that counts as a "configuration")

But why not configure the DE?

Mail me at "[email protected]" if you have any questions.

Sadly, a kernel by itself gets you nowhere. To get a working system you
need a shell, compilers, a library etc. These are separate parts and may
be under a stricter (or even looser) copyright. Most of the tools used
with linux are GNU software and are under the GNU copyleft. These tools
aren't in the distribution - ask me (or GNU) for more info.

Linux is fine in all aspects compared to other OSes, what killed it for me was the shit support for HIDPI devices (Any screen > 1080p).

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.
There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!
