How do I even begin to Linux? submitted by solidsalamander to Linux

yoha 0 points 25 points (+25|-0) ago

  1. Don't wipe Windows (yet)

The thing is that it's best to go incrementally: there is always that one thing that you'll find easier to do on Windows. The good news is that you can have both Windows and Linux on your computer. On Linux, you won't need coding for anything you are already doing on Windows; it's just that Linux makes it easy to use a terminal and you will find out how convenient it is.

Below is a comment I posted elsewhere.


As with everything, the hard part is the first step. Start small and improve every day. You can just install Linux in dual boot so that you still have Windows available. That way:

  1. have some time, install Linux
  2. go back playing on Windows or whatever
  3. have some time, try browsing the web on Linux (notice it's not very different from Windows)
  4. go back playing on Windows or whatever
  5. have some time, install Steam on Linux, try some games (notice lots of games run on Linux (including all of Valve))
  6. go back playing on Windows (some still not run on Linux) or whatever
  7. have some time, learn a simple command to type in the terminal for that one problem you thought was too specific to solve automatically (notice that, on Windows, you would need to find a program for this specific purpose)
  8. go back running that one thing that still run only on Windows or whatever
  9. have some time, ticker with the command line (notice that it's pretty cool, even if people think you're hacking the Matrix)
  10. go back running that one thing that still run only on Windows or whatever (notice how everything is so clunky, slow and eats your RAM)
  11. go back to Linux, install Wine for that one thing, and ditch Windows

That's a possibility, but the negative side of this is:

  • you will have the issue from the VM as well as from Linux
  • it does not encourage you to switch in the end

It depends on the person of course.

Disable Share A Link Click and Drag? submitted by Acer-Red to help

yoha 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

This feature is completely broken: Voat seems to be using Javascript everywhere without proper fallback. The "Sahre A Link" feature breaks the browser history and makes the website half unusable.

I keep getting "Too fast. Please wait 30 seconds" despite waiting submitted by Thelonious_Cube to help

Same here. This is extremely annoying. And, since it mainly hits long posts, it will deter constructive replies…

Where do Linux Gamers get there Linux gaming News? submitted by jinks13 to linuxgaming

Note: it's usually best not to spell out an error (like you did in your last sentence); the reason is that doing so will usually make a connection between the correct and the incorrect versions in people's mind and confuse them. I had this happen to me, where a professor stating out an error made me start doing it. Correcting this takes quite some time and mental focus.
