10 Reasons To Replace Windows With Linux submitted by fluxusp to Linux

Security by obscurity isn't real security. A 0-day isn't going to be responded to as fast by distro managers as by a multi-billion dollar company

Fair breakdown except this point. We see the opposite. MS refuses to acknowledge security flaws even when warned of them directly by white hats. They will ignore for months. Where open source gets fixes out at shocking speeds.

People who rely on food stamps legitimately don't behave this way. This is from folk who are able to get on these programs because their income is unreported / illegitimate.

Is running Linux worth it when you need windows for other functions? submitted by jewjoints to technology

Linux Mint is my current favorite. Others will disagree because it's Ubuntu based and has SystemD. But if you are less concerned about those topics then it's a really great first go.

Just do a live usb download and give it a shot on your hardware to see how you like it. Most distros have similar live usb options so you can try a dozen of them before making your final choice.

For Windows stuff I use a combination of Wine or Play on Linux and a VM. VM keeps Windows light as you should only use it for a few very specific tasks.
