Morning sweeties 😉
The long awaited Linux challenge bears fruit in the form and shape of a first video. Yes, it’s boring, yes it’s tedious, yes it shows Linux as either super duper easy to install and get into or a geeky task nobody likes to be up to.
But first, before I tell you my feelings, let’s watch the show:
Okay, what did we learn?
- Luke did put on some weight
- Linus went to work with the mindset of a geek, which got him into trubbelz
- Luke just went with the tried and trusted Linux Mint, installed some gamer stuff kinda automatically and started gaming
- Linus is easygoing for n00bs, housewives, senior citizens and little kidz
- Geeks tend to overcomplicate every little shit
All in all, again and again, we must get our definitions right. In a time like 2021, when most users aren’t even installing their own Windows computers every little Linux installation must appear like a friggin supernatural wizardry. So let’s make that clear once and for all: It’s not wizardry, it’s not even geeky and nerdy, it’s just what needs to be done if you don’t wanna invest in a preinstalled Linux machine.
And to install Linux on your lap- or desktop is much easier than installing Windows. You don’t even need to have your licence number ready and to sign away your first-born in order to have a full-fledged, fully legal Linux system on your machine.
Also it’s no shame to go with an easy peasy distro like Mint. If you wanna get something that creates no troubles but sparks joy in you, and supports you in your task to set up a gaming system, a primitive workhorse such as Mint is always a good starting point and guarantees smoooth sailing.
Anyhoo, here are already the first reaction videos:
As a quasi teaser for the new LTT series, here are Linus and Luke in an excert from the WAN Show:
