    Coming from someone that works a lot in network forensics, I can say that Linux is by far the best operating system. The only time you should really use Windows is if you're a hardcore gamer or want to use a specific program that's not supported on Linux (e.g Adobe Photoshop).

    Unless you are a gamer or a professional that needs some specific software there is no need to have Windows…Ubuntu is much better choice for a home user because its much much less likely to get infected…And almost every single Windows Pc becomes infected very very soon (with usual results the slowing down)

    One of the best things about Linux is that you can choose a distro/ desktop environment appropriate for the level of hardware you are using

    If you have a more beefy computer then you can run something flashy and fancy

    If you are running a mid range computer you can run a balance of eye candy and performance

    If you are running low end you can use something designed to be minimalistic and fast which will make your low end/ older machine run fast and not hog resources.

    On windows you are forced to use the heavy OS on everything, even those $200 budget laptops which in no way are meant for a OS as heavy as windows really….

    Ubuntu saved my life! My Dell E6400 crashed and wouldn't boot. The tech geek charged $65 plus the cost of repair. Then I decided to boot it with Ubuntu and overwrite/delete Windows during installation. It worked! That resurrected my laptop.

    I was a windows user just a week ago, windows 8 is pretty awful but unfortunately microsoft still can't learn anything from it, windows 10 is nothing better at all.

    Hey Tos, I know you like Ubuntu, but I don't have any confidence in it anymore. Canonical no longer cares about Ubuntu (atleast not the desktop version), absolutely no changes have been made in the last few years. And Ubuntu is still managed poorly, LTS and non-LTS version…why not just release LTS versions? And the fact you are stuck with outdated packages until Canonacal releases an update, which come out at a snails pace, is ludicrous. Not sure why anyone uses it to be honest.

    Windows 8 looks and works like shit… I can't stand Microsoft trying to sell me software or advertise on my homescreen. I downloaded Ubuntu just because Windows 8 sucks so bad. I'm glad I downloaded Ubuntu. Ubuntu is amazing, and I can still play Minecraft; the only game I need so games aren't any problem. The only Windows program I miss is my Microsoft Office Suite, however, I have LibreOffice and it can save in .Docx format so it works perfectly for my school projects.

    Windows 8 LOOKS teriffic.
    Windows 10 LOOKS terrific.
    People always speak about LOOKS when they discribe/introduce about windows….

    But when someone will speak about security, LINUX is definitely better than windows….Windows is focusing on LOOKS/GUI not on security….and LINUX focus on security….if LINUX focus on GUI….Windows will be garbage!

    The most important deciding factors. 

    Pros for Linux:
    Ubuntu is free and it's also more agile 
    Windows 8 costs 100$ and is heavier.

    Pros for Windows:
    Windows 8 supports more software (and probably hardware too) and is more user friendly.

    Correct me if I'm wrong 😉

    Love Linux, only the reason 90% will keep with Windows is because mainstream games are not compatible with Linux.
    And if someone is able to run them on Wine for example, they have to adjust it with every patch.
    Not to mention the glitches and crashes.

    Mainstream computer users will always stay with Windows as Linux is not newb friendly.

    PS. W8 is THE worst OS in history to this date though.

    if you dislike the metro start menu, then why not upgrade to windows 8.1 and download classic shell? I have it and when I click on the start button, the traditional start menu comes back. I toggled it so I can go to the metro screen by middle-clicking.

    Being a windows user since windows 98.. I gave up on windows 8. Every time I tried installed win8 I cursed my self for doing that and went back to win7.
    Tried Ubuntu recently and voila everything works out of box. Liked it and stayed with it.
    So adapting to Ubuntu is easier than adapting to win8.
    Had no problem adapting to Android phone from iPhone. But this win8 … Lol
    Did I mention trying out apple …got one for fixing from my in laws… worse than everything… Stone age

    Good evening

    I have to completely disagree with your views in this video. In October I purchased a laptop which came with Windows 8.1. Winsows 8.1 is the worst operating system I have ever used. Macro mode is not cool. On numerous occasions I have become stuck in some of the tiles with no way out other than the Windows key to get to the desktop. When I pressed the Windows hot key again I was back to the place where I was stuck. I also found that rebooting did not get me out of where I was stuck. A good example was when Windows decided to force me to setup my email, which I did not want to do, the net result was I could not get out of it. Another example was when I put in my 4G USB modem it decided to run one of its' default broadband programs and left me stuck at the serial key screen. The start button in 8.1 is useless because all it does is run macro mode. I do not know why Microsoft bothered with it. It does not bring up a Windows 7 type menu.

    From what I have heard and read the start menu is coming back in Windows 10. But all it will do is launch the macro stuff. Microsoft still do not get it that most users what it to work the same way it does in Windows 7. Macro mode is for pizza retaurants etc.

    I have spent a great deal of time and effort installing addons to try and get the horrible operating system to work like Windows 7. Microsoft like Canonical and GNOME need to try and understand that my laptop and desktop are NOT tablets and smartphones.

    Now regarding Ubuntu and Unity. Since Ubuntu 10.04 the Ubuntu developers have been removing usefull features with every release, basically dumbing down the system so that it will work on tablets and smartphones. Their focus is no longer on desktops but on the 'One size fits all' viewpoint. The Unity desktop has got to be the worst Linux desktop I have had to work with. It is cumbersome and illogical. It was designed for tablets and smartphones not desktops or laptops. There is nothing wrong with having a desktop with shortcuts, the Ubuntu developers seem to think there is. I click on a shortcut, one action, and my program runs. With Unity there is like three to four. Then there is the annoying thing of when you select a program group e.g. graphics, you get a large display of all the graphics programs you have not installed. Not cool at all.

    When I recommend Linux to Windows users I recommend Linux Mint and Zorin. I do not recommend Ubuntu because in my opinion Canonical like Microsoft and GNOME have lost the plot. I moved to Linux because of the large choice a user had. I feel that with the Unity and GNOME Shell desktops this is being eroded. I currently use GNOME fallback mode in Ubuntu 12.04. I mainly work in Linux Mint 17. I also use Zorin.

    Regards
    Philip

    I have repaired a number of computer for friends.
    This what I have seen.
    Windows : has to be maintained with a spy ware checker, virus checker and a registry cleaner. You also can't install a number of programs because of the problems above.  Don't install anything
    with the words Free, Coupons, Gamble, Toolbar, Shopping and Porn. Every windows machine I repaired has or  will come back.
    Also friends who wanted to re install Windows did not like the
    process. The drivers had to be downloaded for the motherboard,
    video card and etc.

    Linux: How to maintain, Update 1 click and your done and no programs you don't want will be added. Every computer I have installed Linux on is still running has not came back.
    Some friends installed Linux, thought the process was fine
    with the same and or equal to Windows most said it was easier.
    The concept of: Installing to a usb flash drive and plug it
    into almost any other computer and it will run.
    Testing Linux from  DVD and running a full OS with installing
    anything.  Installing a number of programs at once.
    See a old Vista PC run again fast a with the latest stuff.
    All was shocking!! Really I can do that?
    Run what works for you!!!

    im a Linux user, but honestly, unless were talking major updates like windows 8.1 or patching linux kernel vulnerabilities theres really no point with updating whatsoever, 

    Linux is secure enough to not have to update it more than like 2-3 times a year, as where windows was born to be insecure, so theres really no reason in updating windows at all ever unless you're dealing with a HUGE HUGE HUGE vulnerability, or you're getting extra features that are really worth your time. 

    in my professional opinion for the average user i think dual booting is the real answer, and i like to tell people that Macs (OSX) are practically just simplified linux machines, you cant run windows programs on either out of the box, but you don't get viruses or bloatware on either, and theyre a hell of a lot easier and less costly to upgrade to the newest OS release compared to windows.

    Linux should be treated like mac users treat OSX (dual boot) use mac/linux for everything, and use windows for things that dont require windows, this keeps the windows partition cleaner and less vulnerable to viruses because you arent clicking on ads all the time and installing complete fucking garbage to your computer like you're tempted to with adblock. 

    Oh, and btw to all you mint users, i dont see how mint is better than ubuntu, just install cinnamon or mate on ubuntu and you're 10x better off. not to mention that unity and OSX are focused on a desktop environment that actually makes sense to the user.

    I came from vista to windows 8. I love it. I don't like touchscreen son a laptop though. I have an iPad and I think touch screens are better for smaller devices. My arm aches if I have to touch the screen on my laptop.
    Windows 8.1.1 is so much better. Haven't even heard of Ubuntu until today.

    Finally someone who didn't completely just trash Windows 8, im no mark for the OS but in the 2 years ive used it i have learned the OS and prefer it today as my main OS for daily use. Where as most who seem to trash it have given it limited time of use or not even trying it and going off word of mouth. Is this the technology age we live in where even PC users go soft and want everything to be done for them…. i for one will never be a part of that world.

    I vote for Linux.  In fairness I do not play games so I dont really need windows.  I like that I can customize my computer any way I want.  And more importantly no spyware malware etc..  That stuff is a pain in the but!!!!!  I just want to use my computer not run malware bytes etc..  I had enough of that.
