Amen to that brother.
I gave up on Linux as my main OS a while back. Windows 7 just works.Nvidia are the best drivers for Linux. The grandparent confirms to me why Linux is a bad idea on non server hardware.
I think it's ludricous to change my apps and lifestyle for an OS when it should be the other way around. The gimp and emacs are no photoshop and visual studio. I used vmware workstation and now Hyper-V.
No worries an update will break xorg, no hardware upgrade worries. Same VMs. Even better is with a hypervisor you can use www.turnkeylinux.com for a quick appliance. Try that on a non VM that you do not want to re-image for each appliance. I love pfsense on lampstack.
VMs are amazing
