Discussion on: Switching To linux

Every time I get a new computer, and sometimes just in between, I try to switch to Linux, are confronted by something that doesn't make it unusable but just something I'm not willing to tolerate, and switch back.

Often it's tearing on the desktop. Gnome doesn't have it and seems rock solid, but I also hate the way it functions

KDE crashes whenever I open a game then the tearing starts.

Some other desktops really don't like it when your multiple monitors aren't all the same.

Multiple of my Ubuntu installs have self destructed in upgrade, etc.

I really want to like and use Linux. But Linux hates me.
