Windows 11: Watch This Video!

Guys, you have two options: Either throw your PC on the trash heap and get a new machine in order to run Win11 – or, dare I say it? install Linux on your still good machine. Whatev, for now just lookywatchy Tom’s well-informed video:

Got it? It’s easy to understand. And your options are clearly laid out for you:

No, you can’t run Microsoft compatible software but you don’t need to. As Tom said, don’t look for a certain software, just look for what tasks you wanna do on your computer and use the Free and Open Source Linux softwares to do the same job.

If you need a specialised Windows program for your job as an employee, your employer must provide you with a machine fit for the task. And in that case, a switch to Linux on your now redundant machine is the coolest thing that can happen to you.

I recommend everybody try out and use Linux softwares on your Linux machine:

MS Office: Easily replaced by Libre Office

Adobe PhotoShop: Use the GNU Image Manipulation Program GIMP

And softwares for most other tasks you can download and install for free from your Linux distro’s repository.

Anyhoo, Win11 will come and Win10 will be phased out sooner rather than later. ๐Ÿ˜ It’s Microsoft’s inherently evil side. They can’t help it, it’s system imminent. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


  1. I quit IT and Microsoft 6 years ago. I wasted 27 years of my life on that mess of garbage code. Linux has been a lifesaver to myself, friends, and family ever since. Everyone always had Windows issues. I set them up with Linux, nobody ever calls me anymore for PC Laptop issues. I ask them, it works, never a problem. They love it, don’t even think about it anymore. As easy as turning on their TV.

    • Zackerly!
      I dunno why people are always so afraid of Linux. It’s the geeky image and the many neckbeards that make them shy away I guess. I tell them Linux is easier than Windows and needs less maintenance and the computer will run even a bit faster … and more secure. Unfortunably most people, particularly women are already totally stressed out by putting the ISO file on a bootable USB stick and preparing their computer’s UEFI to use the USB port as boot drive. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • Don’t we all dream and hope for that, Renard? But I fear what truly will happen is that even more people are giving up on computers altogether and using smartphones instead. Tablets if anything, but mostly just smartphones. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  2. It may well push a lot more people to Linux, most people will get fed up of forever upgrading. Not gamers.
    Unlikely business will take up Linux though. IMHO

    • Yeah, the gamers are hard to get but I’m hearing great strides have been made on that front. And as long as most Second Life viewers have Linux versions I’m fine. And Firestorm and Singularity are even in the AUR. It’s like Linux, particularly Arch-based distros, were just made for Second Life. Bestest experience evar! \o/

      And business? Don’t Red Hat, SuSE, Oracle … and even Ubuntu do well on that front? I mean RHEL was bought by IBM, I guess, for 7 billion US$$$$$

      But wot do I know,I’m just a stupid housewife, living behind the moon where I do some oldfashioned blogging like an old grandma.

    • Yes, I know about WINE but never tried it. I hear it’s very erroneous and only works for some stuff. Glad to hear you can use your flight simulator tho. What Linux are you on, Laforge?

      • I am using Linux Mint 20.2 with Wine. I even did a great post about how to install all the necessary debs to get most if not all that you might need to run any Microsoft product. I can’t install anything with DRM because well you know. I haven’t been able to install fortnite because of it being DRM. I however have installed all my steam games and even my (Diablo). Wine is getting MUCH better than it was in the past. The devs are working hard at making almost everything work with Wine.

          • Steam has some great tools to play their games on the Linux OS. Not sure who did it but there is even a big database for steam games that will work with Proton. It’s call it shows the users how well a game will work with steam on Linux and if there is any way to do it.
