I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

No more than any other distribution that comes with a DE (and if you're just sperging out about DEs in general, then that's a more general complaint than just "Manjaro sux")

And the default Manjaro DEs are XFCE and KDE, both of which are _significantly_ less bloated than the GNOMEshit on Ubuntu.

In both instances, the games average about 10-20fps less than Windows. Bear in mind these are 7 month old benchmarks and there's been a significant amount of development on Wine/DXVK/Proton in the meantime.

linux could take off if there would be at least one distro that is completely made for dumb end users. 80% of users are computer illiterate, 80% of the rest does not want to invest time to learn an os that is 50x more complicated in setup and everyday use just to have much less compatibility.

Linux has it's use and it's not the end user space.

No, Ubuntu is by far not user friendly enough.

I manage 60+ VMs at work, but I use windows at home. I don't want to fuck with my free time. I have linux on my nas for stability and low overhead, but that's it.

Using linux unironically at home for your main pc is like kicking yourself in the balls. I guess some are into it, but please don't try to act like it's the right way.

.NET Core doesn't have any good GUI bindings you faggot. It sure has UWP but it's tied to Windows, so you can't code with it on Linux. Same for Xamarin.
