I would really like Linux to be a good alternative, but I fear all the compatibility issues.

Chat me up.


Almost all desktop hardware and most laptop hardware should be fine.

The real problem is that lack of MS Office. You can fiddle MS Office 2010 into it but it's a bit hacky.

You never know when they might run out of bits.

If all you want to do is go on the internetz and type up documents (in open office XD) Linux is perfectly viable.

Using Linux since 2007, both for work and on my personal computers. Lubuntu at work and on my PC, Arch on my laptop (XPS 13 2015). I use Linux for gaming sometimes, but I have a Windows 10 partition around. I'm a huge Linux fan but I don't recommend it to gamers. I like it much more for everything else, daily tasks, workflow, customization, etc. But it's not quite there for gaming yet imo. Big hopes with Vulkan!

thx for the offer laifu but i still want to gaym and it seems linux is not a smooth alternative for that type of system

i might go for linux on my laptop eventually, though. the main thing stopping me from doing this is the really handy n64 emulator and some uni software. i'll chat you up when i decide to try linux, though! what are the hardware requirements? the laptop is quite crappy imho.

I feel like my dad would love linux, imho.

The requirements on linux are generally lower than for Windows. Depending on what kind of desktop you want (and you seem like the kind of guy who's down for a traditional desktop) the requirements can essentially go arbitrarily low. An N64 emulator for linux is more than available; all of that kind of fan-made software is often more available on linux than on windows.
