Tired of the mainstream browsers being so darn slow, taking so much RAM on your super old laptop. Well, Catalyst is the solution. It is a zero compromise browser that will run on anything! Available for Windows, MacOS, and Linux! It is super fast and customizable with a fresh and modern UI!!!.

Always use the latest version of an antivirus. To get the latest security and protection, it is also recommended to use the latest version of MacOS or one that get's security patches. Update your software or you will regret it, and you will have several risks waiting for you.

I use macOS and I am happy with it, why should I switch to Linux? I have the flexibility of a terminal and a really good development environment (I hate windows)
I do also want to try it some day, but later when more software is supported (office) and then I will think about it.

I now have my Linux scripts on github. Here
Only the contents of my current ~/.scripts dir. I lose my scripts every OS reinstall/switch

I use macOS only because the hardware and build quality of the MacBooks are really good. M1 is great performance (for me), battery life (for me), and wayy less heat generating than an Intel based mac. I don't think there are any Linux laptops that are nearly as good in terms of hardware. And software support is limited, not all apps run very well on Linux. That being said, it is an AMAZING OS and there are tons of things you can do on it. I'm sticking to macOS for now. I have used terminal based Linux quite a lot - it's really fun and stuff … but I haven't used a Linux GUI yet. Also Darwin and Linux >>> NT.

Same. Windows isn't very good for a person like me who likes doing stuff with programming languages. macOS is just a whole lot better, ships with built in Python2, Ruby, Bash, Zsh, and sh. Linux also does that - but again, hardware support is why I don't use it a lot. For software devs or any person doing anything that's related to software, professional, or as a hobby, or while in college or school, Linux and macOS are better than Windows. Linux does have a few advantages over macOS, it's free, open source, and isn't made by a money hungry company (like Apple or Google or Microsoft).

lol, I remember one time when I had a Lenovo Ideapad 320 and it was SO SLOW and it took me so long to get Node working.
But let's not get too off topic now.. I think there might actually be a Unix topic instead because they have so many similarities (but not equal)
And who wants to use Python2? That's there for legacy purposes; as soon as you go and get Python3 it will just be there to haunt you when you try to copy-paste a command that has python instead of python3 and you never notice

You can change your environment variables to use /usr/bin/python3 instead of /usr/bin/python.

ok now enough offtopic - https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/557432/

The best Linux distros are in my opinion ones without systemd, like Devuan. (systemd is an init program – meaning it's constantly present – used by most or all mainstream Linux distros, but many think it's bloated and does too much.)

I really like the MATE desktop environment and GNU Emacs, the text editor.

GNU/Linux has lots of advantages over Windows. I don't think it really have many advantages over macOS, except that it's FOSS and gratis, and a Mac costs a trillion dollars.

Maybe it could be more secure because it's open source? Or maybe it could be more efficient than macOS, because it isn't based on a basically monolithized version of the Mach kernel, and doesn't have all those Objective-C frameworks, services, and programs? (Just speculating; somebody could confirm by actually comparing them.)

Yeah - it's personal preference … macOS is better for some while Linux is better for others.

If you do not like Linux, or don't want to talk about it. Please go to the correct topic of such OS you like and use. Please don't get this topic closed and have it end up like the Windows 11 topic that got closed, then reopened. I don't want my topic closed at all.

Although I do end up copying macOS UI in Linux anyway

I can't get the top bar menu though, there aren't any GNOME extensions that work with my GNOME version (41.1)
