    No 1 OS in terms of breaking perfectly working software and bricking devices, force feeding updates through stealth mode, Too much PITA to setup after clean installing every 6 months instead of a year or two. The list can go on for several millennia and even Aliens would switch to Linux for their mother ship to take off correctly!

    I guess the three laptops that I have bought recently, and wiped windows 10 to put windows 7, wasn't enough to stem the tide? ;)
    I just installed Win 10 enterprise LSTC on a VM to see how much of it I could stomach. What a horrible piece of software.

    Sadly its something we'll have to get used to until there is a better alternative OS to use. Most people are going to stick with Windows 10 no matter how bad it is since its the latest Windows OS.

    Even Windows 8.1 is more stable than Windows 10 and its like using Windows 7 to me after installing classic shell.

    There is a better alternative - http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/linux-mint-19-1-tessa.826487/. I've been running for 14+ months on Linux and haven't skipped a beat. However, I do admit there is a bit of a technical challenge for those trying to configure a gaming PC with Windows dependencies in this configuration. It supposedly can be done, but is a challenge.

    yeah but you'r doing it on a desktop I assume. On a laptop none of the **** works like no FN keys and no brightness control, nada. It'd be like a crippled soldier in WWII

    I thought we were talking in general. But from the point of view of your post, I think a lot of that depends on the laptop. There have been some success stories with Clevo based machines here on NBR. I don't know enough to comment on the status for Linux on MSI laptops.

    But back to Clevo. @Dennismungai, could you elaborate on your setup?

    You should have asked Dennismungai. He can do anything on Linux, in fact I'm using his tweaks to improve my battery life and performance.
    You should buy a decent gaming laptop just for Linux(older the batter) and see how it can play games. BTW, only few work out of the box. If you're solely buying Steam version they use improved version of WINE to make it work. Or you can use Q4Wine UI to run some apps/games.
