Linux is awesome, and if you have not yet tried it, you really should

Why Linux? Because Linux is reliable and however Linux has been nothing but rock solid. If you have not yet tried Linux, we would highly recommend doing it. Linux is the best-known and most-used open-source operating system. It is like macOS or Windows, but better, free and open.

Linux has unfortunately developed quite a reputation as being difficult to use. In the early days, it used to be hard to install (Gentoo), and it was sometimes difficult to install updates and/or other software. Some distros used to be very rough around the edges. It was also hard to get drivers working in some cases. However, this is absolutely no longer the case. Most distros are now very easy to install, and if you can use Windows or a Chromebook or a Mac, you can use most Linux distributions. The concepts at the GUI level are essentially the same. While I am very fond of using the terminal, it must be noted that you no longer need extensive knowledge of the command line in order to use Linux. On most of the mainstream distros, things like updates and the installation of software now happen through a graphical user interface, specifically through some type of app store. But don’t be fooled. Even though Linux is now easy to use, it is still very, very powerful.
