Linux Chad Answers Your Questions

No, Richard, it’s ‘Linux’, not ‘GNU/Linux’. The most important contributions that the FSF made to Linux were the creation of the GPL and the GCC compiler. Those are fine and inspired products. GCC is a monumental achievement and has earned you, RMS, and the Free Software Foundation countless kudos and much appreciation.

Following are some reasons for you to mull over, including some already answered in your FAQ. One guy, Linus Torvalds, used GCC to make his operating system (yes, Linux is an OS — more on this later). He named it ‘Linux’ with a little help from his friends. Why doesn’t he call it GNU/Linux? Because he wrote it, with more help from his friends, not you. You named your stuff, I named my stuff — including the software I wrote using GCC — and Linus named his stuff. The proper name is Linux because Linus Torvalds says so. Linus has spoken. Accept his authority. To do otherwise is to become a nag. You don’t want to be known as a nag, do you?

  • linux isnt hard, people just dont like change. Linux was my first os after 2 months of windows 10. Never had any issue with it.

  • Hey man can you tell me a easy way to installing drives on Debian Linux type distros, prompt ways is allowed too.

  • I hate installing drivers for everything. Linux fixes that

  • I was really surprised to see my comment, I didn't even realize it was the same channel

  • How can i install Intel graphic panel in Linux To lower quality or high quality of 3d graphic model

  • As a windows and Linux mint user, both operating systems have their advantages and drawbacks, i use both on a regular basis and they share common features but have features that the other OS does not, Linux mint is generally more private, customizable, and can run on older hardware, but windows has more app compatibility, what I am saying is, no one should judge an operating system like windows or a kernel like Linux unless they have tried it out, i tried out windows and Linux, none of them are really that bad. And I don't get why people judge an OS or a Kernel before trying it out.

  • Why are thay in my recommendations i use windows and as i have previously im too stopid for linux

  • From the moment I understood the weakness of my OS, it disgusted me. I craved the strength and certainty of GNU. I aspired to the purity of the Kernel.

    Your kind cling to your Windows, as though it will not decay and fail you. One day the crude bloatware you call the temple will wither, and you will beg my kind to save you.

    But I am already saved, for the Linux is immortal…

    …even in death I serve the Omnissiah.

  • how to uninstall the bootloader

  • i found it absolutely hilarious how you say linux is trash while also saying that Windows is also, both are bad in their own way. ( I use linux btw i've used both OS.)

  • why are you encouraging people to use ubuntu lol, it is bloated and confusing
    use arch or cachyos instead
    i recommend cachyos, it is Arch with an optimized kernel and easy to install, i personally use it

  • If you have some reg files then to set up windows you need maximum 1 hour to install/delete software (why m$ don't add the custom setup like in windows 95) and on Linux you need a week
