I was literally searching up “Windows alternatives” as a half-joke

* @danielp3344:matrix.orgDaniel Peterson used debian for like 2 years before really understanding free software03:32:14
@oriot:matrix.orgoriotTo be fair, public education continues to be a joke by promoting non-free (especially in terms of dollars) operating systems and then claim to be giving people the best opportunities. What a joke... 03:32:19
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftThe thing is...03:33:18
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftI actually dual-boot03:33:32
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftSome things simply refuse to run on wine03:33:47
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftI have only touched Windows once recently to update the firmware on an STM32 board03:34:27
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftI used it to play a few games which had kernel level anti-cheat but that’s all03:35:32
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftOh, and old Windows 9X/XP era games03:36:04
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftSome of those games simply refused to work usually due to sound or video/fullscreen issues03:36:54
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraft Other than that, I use GNU/Linux as my daily driver 03:38:13
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftAnd I even have a Windows VM just becuase03:38:33
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraftWindows for some reason runs faster under Linux than on bare metal (installed off of the same install media)03:39:38
@pqcraft:matrix.orgPQCraft I’m pretty sure this has to do with drivers and such though 03:40:09
