Which operating system do you use, and why?

I could be dual booting, but at this point in my life, Windows 11 is perfectly fine for everything I need to do.

If I was using something else, it would just be for learning something different.

I have dual booted windows 10 and Linux mint for years!
 
I have a Windows 10 Main Computer, and a Proxmox server that VM's KUbuntu (KDE ROCK!), but honestly I am learning all of the CT stuff. I have more Linux servers than anything. But I still use Windows 10 for gaming.....

I use Fedora Linux with virtualization software. This allows me to install any additional OS I want for specific purposes.

Tried to use Fedora. but just will not start up when booted even after installed on hard drive! Now trying out Manjero, so far so good!

When I was working I used mostly PC at the workplace and at home. I wanted to install Linux at home but never got around to it. I also heard of a software called Unix. Aren't Linux and Unix basically the same os? I don't know what differences there are.

I didn't know that Linux has many platforms - Kubunto, Fedora, Manjero and Unbunto Christian Edition on Linux. Aren't they all capable unless one has a personal preference?

Eventually I gave priority to the operating system in my home and invested in all Apple in 2017, desktop, Macbook Air and a Hewlett Packard Laser Jet Pro for my printing.

I monitor the security of my Apple computers and haven't had virus or security issues. Through the years I learned Linux is known for it's minimal security issues.

I found my Apple computers has had less technical problems than I ever did with PCs and perhaps the biggest project was installing a solid state hard drive in my Apple which runs very fast.

But, Linux still intrigues me. Does anyone know if Linux Parallels is recommended for Apple? I did some research and it isn't a simple 1-2-3 install.

God bless you all.
 
An easy way to experiment with Linux on a PC or Mac is to install virtualization software. For example Virtual Box. This will allow you to run a guest OS on virtual hardware, just like any other application. For example you can run Windows or Linux on a Mac.

As for Unix -- Unix is the original OS upon which Linux is based. Linux actually stands for Linux Is Not Unix. 😊

Hello LearningToLetGo;

Thank you, brother. My wife and I both agree since our computers are part of the household for the long run we may as well research and get the best performance and security instead of settling which is easy to do.

I'll check out Virtualbox while I'm still interesting in learning more about Linux Parallels.

Think that you could just install Ubuntu christian edition on a Usb and run it and see if like it!

Or run directly off a usb!
 
Windows and phone is android. My late wife was a tech and preferred them. As someone who enjoys online multiplayer games I prefer Windows because more games are developed for it.
 
That also works. Unfortunately it makes it difficult to install software or persist files while running off USB, but if you just want to play around it is a great solution.
True, or can download linux called Knoppix and run of the Usb, as that includes pretty much everything would ever need!
 
As a avid Linux User, and I have Windows due to work. If your games are steam, they will most likely work on Linux. If you have an extra computer and want to play with Distros, Install Proxmox (hypervisor). I have 1 computer with proxmox and it has 10 installed as VM's computers on it. I love to play with different OS's. I have learned Linux with Suse, but I have most of my VM's on ubuntu. If you want to learn OpenSuse is a good distro.
