Garuda Linux vs Zorin OS

I recently talked about why migrate to Linux. There are many distros out there, and choosing the right one can be difficult. Here are some advice that will help you get started if you choose to go that route.

First, don’t be intimidated by all the distros. Linux as a whole is a set of components plugged together. Linux distros are essentially configuration presets. You can make any distro look like any other distro by changing its components and configuration.

That being said, there are two major branches of Linux distros: Ubuntu-based and Arch-based. The difference is that Ubuntu has a static update cycle, meaning less frequent and more stable updates, whereas Arch has a rolling update cycle, meaning continual daily updates and less stability.

Power-users often preach Arch distros like a religion. What you need to know is that Arch-based systems can break down 4 times per year and require manual intervention to fix. You often can find the solutions with a quick search online and type the commands in the shell. If you’re not comfortable with that, then perhaps Ubuntu-based is best for you. One power-user had installed Garuda (Arch-based) on his wife’s laptop and recommended me NOT to do that.

Here’s a review of Windows 11 from the perspective of a Linux user.

The most popular Ubuntu-based distros are Ubuntu, Pop! OS and Linux Mint, whereas the most popular Arch-based distro is Manjaro. After doing plenty of research, there are newer fast-running contestants in the horizon that have my personal …Read More

The Future of Windows, and Why Migrate to Linux

Last week, I wrote about the option of migrating to Linux instead of Windows 11. One person already confirmed having made the switch to Korin OS. It’s going to double in popularity very soon, and jump to 15%+ popularity in about 3 years. What is really going to happen then?

Look at how centralized platforms like Facebook and YouTube have radicalized themselves lately, to have better control over the flow of information. Windows has remained pretty neutral in all this; as a data collection engine.

It’s however only a matter of time until Windows joins the party and radicalizes itself. Once they get desperate enough, you’ll see gradual changes in Windows, and you’ll have no control over how it updates itself and how your computer is going to behave.

Here’s what I see. For now, it’s only collecting data. Eventually, it’s going to assist you with your daily tasks using AI. From there, its AI engine is going to interfere into your daily work. For example, if you want to write an article that is not appropriate like this one, the AI will step in to suggest corrections and facts to help you change your mind. That’s where many will draw the line and jump ship.

With a 15%+ Linux market share, what will it look like for my subscribers and followers?

– Now: 2.1% Linux usage
– 1 year: 4.2%
– 2 years: 8.6%
– 3 years: 24.8%
– 4 years: 53.6%
– 5 years: 55.8%
– 10 years: 72.8%

MacOS will grow too but maybe with 50% growth.

My thought: if we’re …Read More
