Posting in an tech boards. I'm somewhat of a noob compared to coders, but I know enough to have worked as a tech assistent at university. (Helping boomer professors using wifi and such.) I like using Linux and am fascinated with ricing. But I'm too low IQ to get it right. Often there are some problems, even if I try to follow a tutorial and then I can't fix the problem because all I find are thredas from 2009 that don't apply to my machine anymore and then new problems emerge... I'd like to get good at it, but I feel like it would be a full time job and I'm doing something else, not fiddling with computers as a full time job.

>>110047 This is kinda bullshit. On windows it either works easily or it doesn't work at all. And in my job as IT support there have literally been problems that looked like the Linux one on your graphic. Two paid employees trying to figure out and fix why one computer didn't update for five years. Took two full work days to solve the problem. Linux on the other hand is just as easy for most things. I even installed Ubuntu for my mom, she figured out herself how to change wallpapers and installed two programs with me on the phone. With Linux, you can attempt to do things that just aren't possible on Windows, so you'd never have problems there, but if you choose to make it difficult for yourself, you can with Linux. Ricing is such a topic. You just can't rice Windows in any comparable way, so of course there can't be the same problems.
