Gave the preinstalled Windows on my new laptop about 24 hours and now I'm back to Ubuntu. I will miss the the facial recognition login(unfortunately Howdy doesn't seem to like this camera), but that wasn't quite enough to put up with the weirdness of Windows. Is this how long time Windows users feel when they try Linux?

@bsharitt which just goes to show that its not about usability or features, its about being comfortable.

@bsharitt Probably. I remember having a difficult time with my first Linux based operating system because it didn't work like my Windows XP.

I'm now at the point where I have issues with everything that's not the right init and everything that's not tiling. I can't stand a stacking window manager and having to use the mouse all the time.
