if you can, i highly recommend switching to linux. i'd recommend ubuntu or an ubuntu derivative

"year of the linux desktop" is a meme, and it's actually gotten harder to install on a lot of hardware, but videogames actually mostly work

i started using ubuntu from 10 years ago and man it's so much more enjoyable to be on ubuntu than on windows

i know "haha just get linux" is a meme but, like, windows 11 is still coming

Unfortunately fully 90% of my problem with windows 10 is that I've been using windows 7 on my home pc for coming up to a decade and a half, and I hate change. Changing to linux would also be change and therefore I would hate it. I'm sorry :(

absolutely valid! linux also sucks in a lot of ways so you're not losing much

hopefully windows 12 doesn't suck and you can go from 10 to 12 without a problem at least?

install windows subsystem for linux and you can have the worst of both worlds

I think my favorite cursed thing about 2016 is that it was the year you could just download ubuntu from the windows store.

God it was so bad. WSL and WSL2 are Microsoft's desparate attempts to court developers who realize how much better Linux and Mac are for developing anything, but instead it just gives people the impression "Ubuntu sucks and is slow" which is probably just as good.

Maybe 2022 will be the year of WSL
