If someone on Windows is looking to get into using Linux, what should they learn?
Also what would be a good starting distro?
>>
>>2201409
Just load up mint or ubuntu on a virtual machine and use it for a few weeks. After you get comfortable with linux, go for a more advanced distro like arch/debian/gentoo

Start by using OpenSUSE in a VM. Or any distro that seems interesting. But starting point should be some commonly used pre-packaged and pre-configured distribution such as OpenSUSE, Fedora, Mint, etc. so that you have access to community for help and tips, its distro specific documentation and other resources. Check IRC and Discord channels for these distros.

Do not install drivers for your hardware directly from manufacturer's website.

Use distro specific software/package manager to install things. There are GUIs for them but it often in my opinion tends to be easier to just use CLI versions of dnf, apt, pacman, portage, etc. instead of Gnome Software or alike.

Try different desktop environments such as KDE Plasma and Gnome to figure out what feels best for you. Main difference between Plasma and Gnome is the widget toolkit used to write programs for the desktop which determines its look and feel. KDE Plasma uses Qt and look and feels like MS-Windows.

Gnome is macOS-like but does many things in its own way. Gnome is usually the "default" desktop on Linux but it tends to split opinions. Its toolkit GTK+ and libraries are used to build most of the other desktop environments in Linux such as Mint's Cinnamon, or the famous XFCE which resemble MS-Windows more.

Use Linux at least one year on real hardware before attempting to move to any advanced distribution such as Gentoo, Arch, SourceMage, etc. However I wouldn't recommend it for most users. The main benefit of distribution such as Arch is usually marginally better performance, slightly newer software and ability to have the system configured just the way you want it to be in exchange for a lot of your time.

Maintaining advanced distributions also take a lot of time and knowledge. There are iterations such as Manjaro (based on Arch) which automate a lot of this and make it easier to use. So rather than moving to Arch directly it might make more sense to first move to Manjaro before jumping to Arch.

>>2201409
I felt the driver tip needs more clarification...

Do not install hardware device drivers such as graphics card drivers from e.g. nVidia's website. There are a lot of web pages that instruct how to do this but do not follow them! You most likely do not know how to install a compiler, compile your own kernel modules, and how to load them at boot time.

Fortunately you do not have to know. Usually Linux kernel comes with the most drivers baked in. For example when it comes to graphics cards Intel and AyyMD master race people will always have their official latest free graphics drivers as long at they have the latest kernel.

In AMD's case instead of their official supported free driver (named AMDGPU) you could enable extra features by installing their proprietary driver (called AMDGPU-Pro). However that's not required to play games from Steam for example.

nVidia is PIA. There is an unofficial semi-free driver for their older graphics cards which comes with the Linux kernel (it's called nouveau). However to get most performance out of their hardware, nVidia proprietary official driver is needed.

Most user-friendly distributions pre-package this official nvidia driver as much as nVidia's license agreement allows it. However a lot of times they cannot ship it with the distribution. So for example with OpenSUSE a separate nVidia repository has to be added and separate pre-packaged driver has to be installed. There are instructions to do this and it's two commands in CLI or few simple clicks in YaST (their configuration framework tool). nVidia officially supports OpenSUSE as well.

There are distros which do bundle nVidia drivers as well. Probably most known is PopOS! which is based on Ubuntu and intended for System76 built PCs. But can be used in any PC just the same.

What further complicates this is the choise for graphics backend between X and Wayland. nVidia has poor Wayland support because they don't play the ball. But that's a story for another time.

That's a cool short introduction for noobs.
>>
>>2206519
Thanks, anon. I'll be using an AMD card once I manage to get one.
I'll look into OpenSUSE, although I've heard that Mint and Ubuntu are good starting points for beginners as well.
Any particular reason to choose OpenSUSE over others?

OpenSUSE Leap is the official cost-free version of commercial SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop distribution (SLED). As of Leap 15.3 users receive the same security & feature updates as SUSE's paying enterprise customers do & at the same time. It has a strong branding and is one of the oldest actively maintained distros.

Leap is a highly optimised distro with good performance metrics. This is due SLED being meant for professionals that do e.g. audio work, graphic design, 3D modelling, CAD/CAM, and such. This benefits users of OpenSUSE Leap in such a way that it's a very good platform for gaming & multimedia. Ubuntu (and Mint as a derivative of Ubuntu) tend to have performance issues & memory consumption problems on desktop.

Notable distro specific feature of OpenSUSE is YaST. It allows you to make deep system configuration changes from GUI without a need to touch CLI. In other distros you do have to actually know how to use multiple separate CLI/GUI utils to perform config tasks and have knowledge of how to edit plain-text config files in /etc directory but with YaST you can use single GUI to perform most of these changes.

YaST can also be used to perform system upgrades, install software, partition disks & more. It enables use of OBS (Open Build Service) & one-click-install of software through a web interface.

It provides users with vanilla versions of KDE Plasma and Gnome.

Here is also couple reasons why not use OpenSUSE:

OpenSUSE defaults to BTRFS file system which is a piss poor attempt at cloning some features of ZFS. Ubuntu offers the actual ZFS support out-of-box. However use of either is not adviced for desktop users whom should use ext4. Ubuntu & Mint default to ext4.

YaST has a tendency to restrict you from making "stupid" decisions over how to admin your own system. This restricts the very freedoms that you'd choose to use Linux for. But new users might want this "safe-guard" which is why I tend to suggest OpenSUSE for new users.

Manjaro, or any Arch based distro (like Arco), in fact, you could even just install regular Arch since it has an installer now. Arch is easy as fuck to use because of the AUR, which has literally every program and random obscure driver you could ever need.

Can wholeheartedly recommend KDE Neon. Been my daily driver for a few months now and have no complaints. It's built on Uuntu LTS so it's rock solid, and haven't experienced any bugs so far. KDE is also more similar to WIndows than say GNOME so the learning curve will be less when transitioning. Installation is super easy and "it just works".

There's a million answers. I've used Linux as primary OS for 15 yrs. Started with Ubuntu, but ended up switching after a decade because 70% of time the distro would bork on a new version update.

Got convinced to try Manjaro 2yrs ago and I was hesitant because Ubuntu uses a package (similar to an exe in windows) that's pretty popular and I was concerned I'd need to install everything via the terminal (a pain IMO).

I've actually found Manjaro to be easier to use overall than Ubuntu; nearly everything I want to install is in Manjaro's software channel with the AUR (Arch User Repository) enabled.

Manjaro and Arch are nice because you get access to updates sooner. This can theoretically lead to broken things but I've yet to experience that.

MX Linux is pretty popular but I absolutely hated it because I hate the XFCE desktop environment. Mint is decent, but KDE looks too much like windows and I disliked that Mint did new version updates like Windows (maybe it's different now?).

I prefer the GNOME desktop environment since it's very different from windows, but KDE plasma looks really nice.
