@ Beetcoin
I really cant say...is different from people to people.

If you used Windows for a number of years and you are already heavily accustomed with it, you will find the transition next to impossible.
I have a Win7 installation for gaming and the minute I finish the game I feel the desperate urge to go back to Linux where is warm and comfy Smiley You will feel the same Smiley

It is really not complicated to use, is just...different.

i just feel the need to reformat windows once every 4ish months, since it feels so dirty using windows.. knowing all of my doings can be tracked so easily.

Well then, the best compromise is to use dual boot.

Keep a Windows installation for whatever apps you don't find in Linux or don't want to use their Linux equivalents, and a Linux installation for everything else.
That will also help the transition (if there is going to be one) and you will have the best of the two worlds.

Imho windows is much more complex than linux.

I mean: look at windows registry... If you understand 20% of it you are  genius!
There's no such obscure things in linux

Mac IS Linux. Here's my hierarchy on how good the Operating systems are for personal use, yes I've used all of them:

Windows > Mac OS > [Insert 500 other items here] > Linux > Bios Menu > Blue screen of death

Rating of each as a personal computer:
Windows: 10
Mac OS: 8.5
Linux: 1

Windows: Best operating system ever. Has unlimited capabilities if you know what you're doing.

Mac OS: Very good operating system. It is a very easy to use personal computer that has the same software as Windows while offering the same 'open source' strengths as Linux.

Linux: No point in this as a personal computer OS. Mac IS Linux. Same terminal, same commands, same potential, everything is nearly the same except Mac has much better support, usability and stability. For mining and servers though Linux is used a lot, so it's not a bad usage for that. However, as a personal computer, Linux is a no.

Sorry sir, you know nothing about what you're talking about.

Start here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TA25633

Sorry Pedrog, I've used both of them and honestly can't tell any external difference between them as a personal use OS. The only main differences is that Mac can run things like Photoshop while Linux you have to go through Wine, and sometimes that takes days to set up to run properly.

Here other people in a thread that agree with me that there's basically no difference between the two: https://forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?&t=1852

I'm not saying there's no advantage to using Linux, there is, in servers and mining. I just would not use it as a personal OS, even installing something so basic as 'Flash' for web browsers can take a beginner hours to set up, forget installing something like drivers as the drivers for 2 of my computers were not even available.

Sorry it's just true that OS X is taking over Linux users: http://www.wired.com/wiredenterprise/2012/08/osx-killed-linux/ . Try it out at an Apple store and use the Mac OS terminal, use some Linux commands, find out they work, play with it more, and voila, you realize it's same thing except you can run Photoshop.

It's not about how to use it, it's about freedom, freedom from spying, freedom from corporate imposed DRMs, freedom to choose.

I barely use proprietary software, not even flash.

Paranoid much? If you're on the Internet your ISP can track everything you do. If you use Chrome, Google can track everything you do. If you use apt-get to download a software, their servers can track what you do. In the end someone will always know what you're doing unless you're disconnected.

Mac is Linux...really ?

Mac is Unix, Linux is not Unix, which gives us that Mac is not Linux (though both are POSIX compatible)! As simple as that...

Well, Mac is rather UNIX based/like while Linux is just UNIX like.

Strictly speaking, as some flavors of Mac OS X were certified by The Open Group (which is the certifying body for the UNIX trademark) they are Unices, but as certification is rather expensive, no Linux distribution has yet been registered as Unix, though they aim to be compliant...
