What's the right OS for you?

What's the right OS for you?


(fun fact: it was proven that Android is better than iOS in almost every way)

Windows isn't always the way to go:


So, there's a lot of different OS's out there on the internet, with a majority of them being based off of the Linux Kernel.  A huge majority of people also use Windows and Mac.


Why you should use Linux:


You might be thinking, "There's no point in switching to Linux, I like the OS I use right now".


Well, let's talk about Apple Mac first.  Mac is made by a company that practically scam's its customers (Apple).  Apple charges a ridiculous amount of money for features that you can add to almost any phone for free.  macOS and iOS are extremely limited.  You can barely customize anything.  To even use macOS you need to buy a MacBook or an "iMac" desktop.  There is a tool called Hackintosh which gives you the ability to run macOS on a machine that is not supposed to run macOS, but it is not fully reliable and it is not legal.  You're better off using an Android phone instead of macOS.


Now, moving on to Microsoft Windows 10:


Windows 10 itself is not bad, it's good for businesses and other work.  A huge problem with using Windows 10 is, it is extremely more vulnerable to malware than other OS's.  Windows 10 is not very lightweight either, if you are running a machine with low specs, a great alternative is Windows 10 S.  Windows 10 S is Microsoft's new lightweight operating system. It's meant to be cheaper, more lightweight, and less processor-intensive than Windows 10 Home or Pro, the versions of the OS found on most laptops and desktops today.


Ubuntu Gnome (Linux based OS):


Linux based OS's are thought to be one of the hardest OS's to use.  This is true, and not true.  There will always be OS's that will be easy to use, and hard to use.  Heres an example: Ubuntu Gnome is easy to use for general work, but CentOS 7 (shell-only version) is extremely hard to use unless you know its commands.  Ubuntu Gnome comes with a nice UI, a fast system, and is less vulnerable to malware than a ton of other OS's.  You can even run Windows Applications (.exe) on Ubuntu Gnome by installing a simple software called wine32 by simply opening the shell and typing apt install wine.  Ubuntu Gnome also provides a "Getting Started" window to introduce their new users to Ubuntu Gnome and show how to use it.


Here are some screenshots of the Getting Started window on Ubuntu Gnome:




Conclusion:


If you're looking for a very resource-efficient OS that is easy to use and which you can learn about quickly and easily, also having a lower risk of vulnerability to malware, we recommend you use Ubuntu Gnome.

If you're looking for an OS that is easy to use, lightweight, fast, and stable, we recommend you use Windows 10 S with a third-party antivirus.

If you're looking for a very quick OS to use when you're in the need to quickly search something and/or quickly run something, no matter if the OS itself is very limited or barely customizable, we recommend you use macOS.  Keep in mind, Apple macOS Has many flaws, and is terrible.  It is barely customizable and and the overall layout is just literally stupid.

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDEgFsefrGw&t=541s The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
