  • 3:02 "Microsoft like Apple has made an os that (...) works out of the box." Linux pls :D This weekend I've installed fresh windows 10 on my PC, and started watching netflix (installed via Windows strow which has issues out of box and had to google to fix it) after like 2 h i got BSOD xD Apple's BSOD i've seen one when I installed shitty RAM modules.

  • Windows is okay,Linux is okay, Windows + Linux = nice ps. Mac is okay but Apple products are scam ^^

  • File explorer is much faster than finder in my opinion. In windows to move a folder I right click on the folder, search for the new position (that sometimes you don’t know where it is) and click paste. In macos i have to open to finder windows, one for the initial position and the second for the new directory, drag and drop with two finger. I feel really uncomfortable with finder, if someone can help me to cut and paste as fast as i do with windows I accept any tip.

  • Windows for me only for gaming... Like who admits to same...

  • Linus this video sucks... I would still prefer MacOS over windows for anything than gaming... Office softwares are available for mac too... Infact mac having own software with better user interface and easy to use... Performs lot better... If u go into engineering tools mac is gold u can run parallel deaktop to run windows inside mac it functions like app not a virtual machine... Much better than Windows vmware...

  • Really want a video on "LINUX PROS"

  • I think the best feature is windows 10 is just waiting to rename itself to skynite and we see it getting closer and closer every day. AI growth Live on your PC lol

  • It's also just easier to pirate software on Windows 🤷🏾‍♂️ Don't crucify me, just saying 🙂

  • Dude that hair sticking off of your right ear is extremely distracting...

  • So how hard was it to add 9 fake reasons to your list?

  • I haven't used Windows regularly since XP, and now it seems so strange and foreign. It's very hard for me to get something done in Windows.

    • Plus I can run Unix software that was written in the 70s on Linux, so... about compatibility.

  • Windows management is soo much more intuitive and easier on windows than OS X Linux is good at some of that but it’s distro specific and tricky for less tech savvy people

  • Things I love about Windows as a Mac fanboy: It. Run. Games. That’s enough for me to have at least one windows machine along side my Mac

    • @633K_4R1ND4M Also application support

    • Yeah I agree... This type of video will manipulate novice people

  • RELIABILITY😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • Was that Skyrim with Thomas the Train replacing Alduin??

  • "Play old games", yep, sure, Fallout 3 and GTA4 still don't works on Win10 :C

  • would you say Windows had a 'plethora' of piñatas? Hey, nice captain's chair. Nice enterprise bridge. I have never seen that rgb neon bridge before.

  • Windows 1-2-3-4 also works on the Ubuntu-based distro I'm using to type this (Zorin).

  • gay

  • Why did I watch this whole video?

  • wait wait wait what is this fence thing at 4:05 I am doing this right now

  • This video is completely garbage you didn't even mention linux

  • "DOTA used to be a custom map in WarCraft 3" ...man, i'm old...

  • might agree on some points. but taskbar? this is old-fashioned and rubbish piece of the software. I hope they kill it one day

  • If I can sum it up: it has a lot of Users. Everything else: Linux got you Covered pretty much

  • bruh i think they used windows photo editor to use markers

  • as a linux user. i will admit win 10 is pretty dam good, but i still dont trust it not to get malware, so i wont use it for email and exploring the internet

  • Entire video: top 10 reasons windows is basically a monopoly in the legal definition.

  • Gaming on windows isn't better. They have the console argument, they have exclusivity. It's not that they're doing better, they're just holding titles hostage unless you buy their platform.

  • There aren’t any good reasons, Windows just plain, flat out sucks, end of excuse or story.

    • Good job showing how mad you are. It's not too late to uninstall Linux and move over to Windows

  • If I had the money for 2 computers my plan was to have my everyday computer be Linux and the other a gaming computer running windows. my every day apps just run better in linux, while gaming can be don in Linux its just better supported in windows.

    • @ThatNormalBunny that is what my current setup is. But if I could have 2 computers the Linux would be a powerful low power system, while the gaming would focus on gaming. You would not want to run a powerful gaming system 24/7, that's too much power to be constantly running unless it was in use.

    • Then why not go for a dual boot solution? To help with the size issue save up for like a 10TB hard drive and dedicate 5TB to each OS

  • But I have a big question....how about Professional work? one thing is high-end gaming, daily tasks and other completely different thing is Audio production, Video Editing, 3d Rendering where you need all the posible resources available to speed up your work and not being wasted on stupid background processes that you won't even need as a professional. I'm actually hating windows 10 for those reasons. One thing is having amazing technology cheap at our disposal and more available than ever, and other thing that the fact of having 32 gb of RAM doesn't mean that it should be wasted on senseless background processes

  • how are you gonna use shortcut keys like that isn't the backbone of mac os?

  • Windows Customization is garbage.

    • @ThatNormalBunny I'm talking in comparison to Linux. Sure, it can do a decent amount. But it a absolutely pales in comparison to Linux.

    • To someone who doesn't know what they are doing sure

  • After watching this video, I reconfirm why I left Windows after so many years for MacOS. Now, waiting for ChromeOS to "hopefully" be more complete and useful to leave MacOS. In the meantime, MacOS.

  • TBH, windows 10 is just an improved version of windows 7.

    • @alalauiwhiuwhiuw 43tuijhuiaw;leawgl;jg you are right even windows users will.agree that win7 was better than win10

    • @ThatNormalBunny lets see...windows spys on you sells.your personal data....under the hood. windows NT kernel kernel is.unstable. windows updates that rarange your drive letters. updates that brick peoples pc. thats just a few how about forced updates. check out barniclus channle he talkes about why windows 10 is bug as it is today. windows 10 is not an emproved version of windows 7. the other way around. most average win users will tell you win 7 is way better than win 10. win 7 nevet got in your way like win 10 does. i ditched windows because pf this. i want to boot up and not deal with updates. ajd just use my system. btw you do know windows 10 DOES NOT have an in house testing team. you the user are the tester now

    • In theory, yes.

    • Really!?? -_-

    • anthony frank That's what Windows 10 is supposed to be. Smh


    • @alalauiwhiuwhiuw 43tuijhuiaw;leawgl;jg i checked. It can be read by the pc. Bu wont boot. Diskless client btw. And made sure RAM is installed properly

    • Reap R rams faulty or ram is not supporyed

  • Penis !1111111

  • I was going to dislike but that joke at the start redeemed it to a like. lol Windows update is trash and many other things are trash on W10

  • 0:26 *tips cowboy hat*

  • Haha the vast majority of these positive points are just "more people use it"... So yeah, of course everything is compatible, more apps, more games more support more drivers more everything... And it also has a Document folder **the crowd goes wild**. But that does not make windows any better inherently, it just highlights the circular nature of being the most popular.

  • james looks like the pc from the apple mac/pc ads

  • If only it was a red fedora...

  • WINDOWS 10 IS THE KING! all others are just little biitches

  • Gaming It just works Customization Toolbox Support base Productivity OS Unity Task Bar Reliability Compatibility 10 Reasons Why (Windows 10 Edition)

  • Nowaday BSOD is mostly hardware issues

  • came for the video, stayed for the asteras

  • If you do any software development or server maintaince then windows is just in your way and makes everything way harder and take longer.

  • Mac user here... just can't agree with File Explorer. Finder is just better

  • For the vast majority of users, the Mac OS and a Mac is a far, far better experience.

    • alalauiwhiuwhiuw 43tuijhuiaw;leawgl;jg Yeah, it is, because the vast majority of users never upgrade their computers. You are obviously not a member of that group. That said, I recently upgraded my late 2012 iMac with 9TB of internal storage (1TB SSD and 8TB HDD) and ac WiFi. And no, I’m not a gamer. The last time I played video games was in 1979, Asteroids. 😊

    • Far far better experience. Yeah mate I can’t even upgrade my hardware and you are saying it’s a better experience? Ky

  • Why the stupid washed out look?!

  • why is linus shooting in 2:1 ratio? this sucks so much....

  • Music production, Apple's still best for that It's certainly gotten better on PC, but still, some of the best and most common software/DAWs aren't even available on PC.

  • Why use LastPass when I have Keychain ;)

  • Hey a lot of people have been having a problem with Windows store not working and apps not updating. So many complaints but Microsoft is not doing anything about it.

  • Are you not supposed to use synctoy anymore?

  • Linus: "Windows and 1, 2, 3, and 4. Go ahead and try it out" Me: **tries it out** Me: **falls off my chair**

    • Linus : transition to our Part sponsor - still complete explaining

  • comments: 99% linux stuff 1% windows stuff

  • For anyone who thinks Mac is better, just know that most of the computers in the U.S. military run Windows.

    • alalauiwhiuwhiuw 43tuijhuiaw;leawgl;jg Well, most people are not interested in building their own computers and/or maintaining a system that will likely break every MacOS update. I don’t know how old you are but if you are young then you will likely eventually reach a certain age where you don’t want to deal with such shit anymore. For me it was around 35, and it came upon me real quick and unexpectedly. Before that I used to be all into building and troubleshooting computer crap. Now my ridiculously reliable iMac sits on my slim desk with zero eye clutter and zero mental clutter. Life is much easier after I got rid of the PC messes I used to have.

    • Bobby Brady I would only use macOS as a hackigtosh in a world where it was better than linux

    • alalauiwhiuwhiuw 43tuijhuiaw;leawgl;jg Depends on what you are comparing. Unfortunately the current lousy keyboard, that is hopefully and supposedly going away soon, is what really hurts the current MacBooks. They are now also too thermally constrained, but that's the case with similar thin Windows laptops. The only Mac I currently recommend *without reservation* is the regular iMac. There is no Windows equivalent and it’s actually an excellent deal. I recommend the i9 version. I still have the late 2012 version that I recently upgraded with a 1TB SSD and an 8TB WD Red HDD, and a current ac WiFi card. It's an i7 version and it still effortlessly does everything I need it to do. The best computer I have ever owned, and I used to build my own way back in the day.

    • Bobby Brady agreed, Mac OS is better than windows. But macs are not

    • IceCreamJunkie I'm retired military and Windows was generally trashed in the military. Windows is used by the military for the same reasons most businesses still use Windows. As a personal computer, the MacOS is a far, far, far better computer OS and experience for the vast majority of users.

  • OS Unity?!?! Jesus Christ! MacOS has barely changed since OSX 10.1 and linux has separated the desktop environment and the kernel, meaning that unless you want it to, NOTHING will change.
