I want to learn to use Linux, but tinychan's /prog/ is very faggy and they deleted my post. Where can I start? Can I truly replace Windows with it?

No, but I always wanted to try Linux, will format my SSD soon and I might as well try something new.

Start with linux Mint, get a usb, burn the iso onto the usb, boot into the live usb, install it, use libre software, it's fairly easy and as long as you don't game on your computer you will be fine

Just flash it onto a USB, do arch anarchy installer or Linux Mint. I prefer arch as its simply better (itjustworks.webm) and more advanced, learning it would be worth your time. But mint is just Linux windows.

With windows you get a ram eating proprietary software shitfest with antivirus eating up 100℅ of your CPU. Linux only uses like 1gb of ram realisticly, and your not getting keylogged by kikes

Not if you like games

I agree, start with mint, get used to it, then try few other distros and come back to mint. If you use it for movies, browsing and stuff there is no difference from windows. You can game under linux but it is not for beginners.
Google everything you want to know, the community is nice and helps with everything, especially Mint community.

I've installed linux on an old machine 5 years ago and never went back. Three of our home laptops run linux, only one runs windows for work purposes.

Anyone who tells you to use arch is a fat faggot who thinks they know their shit because they can follow an install guide, if you're a gaymer install pop, for anything else you want debian, Ubuntu or mint because you're going to be reinstalling a lot. Be prepared to be disappointed if you're not a developer

Just install VMware or VMbox, you can experiment with any OS you like without having to commit to it.

the biggest problem people face is trying to start with debian, gentoo is much easier for begginers because it contains the auxilliary standard system framework.

Get a virtual machine going
Go to Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, etc...
Download ISO or a prepared .ovg, but if you want the full experience: ISO.
Install and fail a few times
Finally get it going
Figure out what to do now

See this is why retards like you shouldn't be giving advice, if you're too retarded to remove what you don't need then you're definitely too retarded to know what you actually need

Linux on a desktop is dumb as hell. Windows is a much better end-user OS.

If you want to learn about linux you can install it on a junk computer or dual boot.

if not dont
stop being a faggot, linux desktop is actually good and in many ways better then windows, the only reason to run windows is that some games are pretty hard to ruin if not impossible on linux currently

Pop-os, linux mint, manjaro are the best for beginners i think, but try to learn how to get a good workflow going with tmux + a normal desktop enviroment and stuff like that or just a window manager, search for thos terms and go down the rabbit hole its great and you will be suprised how clean your workflow and get its insane compared to windows plebs

Just pick a popular distro, install it and start using it. I hear Mint is accessible. When you come up against something you don't know how to do, just look it up on Duckduckgo. This is literally the only sensible way to learn how to use any OS.

You will never create windows with Linux. It is a different computer system. Can you do all the things you want to do with Linux. Yeah probably, but it will be done differently. I hope you like fixing computer problems though, because there will be times when you want to watch a movie and Linux will be like "no let's solve a tech problem first :D." Running Linux is like having never ending non stop mandatory CS class homework.

Some of the worst advice I've ever read. Just tell him to literally unironically install Gentoo while were trying to make things difficult for him.

replace windows, unlikely unless are willing to use the open source alternatives or just browse the web. if you want an easy one, pick a debian based distro like ubuntu, mint, elementary OS, or you could use manjaro. also, you should use virtualbox or vmware because it allows you to run whatever os you want without committing to it.

For gaming Linux is pretty shit, although not nearly as bad as it used to be.

If you're a web developer or mostly use software that happens to have Linux support then it shits all over Windows.

I definitely prefer Linux over Windows but have to admit I still use Windows at least 30% of the time especially if I want to play games.

If you have a purpose for Linux then I reckon you'll love it.

But if the intention is just to play around with it and get your games up and running - *wavers hand*

It is however, much, MUCH, smoother and faster than Windows.

Linux can't replace the gaming side of Windows.
If you still want to try Linux, try Linux Mint as a starter. It is very user-friendly.
