re: Linux Vs Windows - Why Linux Is Better For Programming & Web Dev (A newbie experience) VIEW POST

re: I look at this write up as trying to set the foundation around the idea that one should learn Linux I don't agree, this article to me is more say...

My comment is directed towards the title of this article. Now, I don't disagree that there isn't a lot of come to Linux from Windows because it's better in this write up. And my comment leans towards agreeing with that sentiment. Which I guess shows my bias against Windows and my lack of using it for many years is showing.

What shocked me was reading your response and a few other's that are still having hardware/driver issues. Now I can see if a piece of hardware has specific functionality under Windows but isn't available when using Linux as a problem. But for the most part I'd suspect 90+ percent of modern hardware works "out the box" with most major distributions.

Thanks for the tech knowledge update about .NET running on a Linux OS. That's cool there is a runtime for Linux. It certainly makes development under the .NET framework much more universal then it was in the past.

Beyond all of the above statements, no matter what OS you run under your GUI desktop a modern web focused developer should know the basics of Linux so they can at least trouble shoot issues around the code they are writing.

Probably scanners, printers and everything easy overclocking and RGB.

Try anything peripheral that has shitty software to begin with like..Bose speaker.

Printer at usually at least works oob without special drivers but scanner take a trip to the manufacturer. My Epson got Linux drivers support,can't complain but maybe installing the
Exe is faster for most people than figuring out to type apt - ./*.deb

I find amusing how people seems to hate and fear writting into a terminal and prefer to talk to Siri yet they hate to talk to other people on the phone and prefer to message them them, ON THE PHONE. People are weird.

People hate to walk to and wnat to sit on the couch all day but the day that you tell them hey man stay inside they all wanna get out.
