I'm concerned about privacy. I wanna get off the tit, but let's be honest...

Linux makes life more difficult, settings and customization isn't very robust, has major issues with graphic drivers and playing most video games, and I have to use things like libre office that are only 80% as good as the MS mainstream.

Win 7 with some updates banned and 2007 office with settings fixed is a happy medium between Windows probably not seeing anything I'm doing and having 100% full normal functionality with zero issues ever.

100% privacy is impossible anyways, sadly.

Hardware issues are fixed by buying their non-cucked versions. Look a part up, and make sure it's compatible with linux, before buying it. Certain video cards run considerably better on linux than on Windows, even. For everything else: you can always run Windows in a VM. If you have the right processor, and decent RAM, you won't notice any performance hit. Even for some games.

You can always encrypt your Linux partition, and have a separate one setup just for Windows. So you can simply "alt-tab" between OSes, depending on what you want to do. Where there's a will, there's a way. With the advent of SSDs, it's stupidly quick to switch between OSes anyways. I have a normie Windows 8.1 PC setup for gaming and music studio software; I consider it my own little "homebrew XBox"-type machine. Everything else is done in linux.


settings and customization isn't very robust

Are you serious? Jesus, man. It's open source. Besides that, almost all major desktop environments and OS variants have ways of changing literally anything in to anything else. You could make fucking Ubuntu Unity look like an exact, pixel-perfect copy of the latest Mac OS, if you wanted to.

Libre office is 80% better than the Microsoft equivalents.

Linux makes life more difficult

Who wants to think? It's too hard, goyim! Conveniency is your god, bow before it.

Linux got lots of great emulators to play classic games. Why play the SJW infested new games anyway? On Office,... what do you even use/need Office for?

I think everything is rigged these days. It's money for those people.
