if you choose OS based on Popularity.
you better stick to Windows.





Those who wanted try try OS other than Windows,
usually 1st. identify their objective:

Server
Gaming
NAS?
Productivity


what is your purpose?

My previous several computer hard drive is 1T. I used them until RIP and the hard drive capacity usage just only 30% usage. Since Linux is free compared Windows 11 costs about RM1000.00.
I need to dual boots Windows 11 and Linux.

W11 not worth buying.

I'm using the modded copy because it not only suck but laggy too. Ain't gonna pay for it.

Previously I paid for W7 and W10. Both were great OSes.

Right now I'm testing MS-DOS 7 and WfW 3.11 + Office 4.3. Haven't found the way to sync all the files to the cloud yet. Might run it in a virtual PC and link a shared folder to OneDrive.

W11 + Office 365 damn bloated and slow even with 32GB RAM and NVME SSD.

The Windows 11 is installed inside when I buy a new laptop.
My previous pc desktop was broken.
I, now, need to buy the new laptop. I prefer Asus Vivobook AMD CPU (M3504).

this is what I run as well, the KDE variant

I wouldn't recommend it for beginners due to some quirks of it like it using sysvinit instead of systemd

for new comers I still recommended Ubuntu or Debian, or Pop OS

Whichever hardware you choose is entirely up to your preferences and within your budget.

Usually new consumer category system comes bundled with Win11 Home edition, if you want Pro edition then you will need to pay for it.

You can install virtualization such as VirtualBox, WSL2/Hyper-V or VMWare Workstation to play around with Linux. There are many distro available, but the most user friendly is Ubuntu Desktop, for advanced user they preferred Arch or Kali.

Give Ubuntu Desktop a try, you might learn a few things...


Hope this helps... cool2.gif

I am not very familiar with Linux.
I do not know what the Virtual box is?
I prefer ChromeOS because this Linux can install Android apps.
The new laptop I will do partition and dual boot and install Chrome Linux in different drives. I have to ask a technician to do that.
