We were in the first decade of this century. Tired of how slow Windows was and its problems, and after half a year working more in an Ubuntu virtual machine than in native Windows, I formatted and left it with the Canonical system. Later we started to play making music, and I didn't understand many things. Then I would think about it and complain with comments like "it's because in Windows I do...", and he, tired, would reply "Go back to Windows".
Some months ago i wrote an article detailing my decision to switch to Linux and why I stick with it. for my use, and to summarize, everything is easier and works better, with more reliability. But week in, week out, here at LXA and in other blogs in our network they write us comments about how complicated it is to do things in Linux, that what works in one distro does not work in another, that... well, well. Go back to Windows or don't exit it.

Go back to Windows is not bad advice
Es The best for those who want to stay in the comfort zone and not try new things. But I would also tell anyone who messes with Linux not to even think about switching to macOS. It is something that I also did, and things are not the same as in Windows either. What do you want to use something like acestream? get off the docker and run it. That you don't know what "docker" is or how to make it work? You have spent thousands of euros or your current currency to not know how to move around the interface or how to do things in a system other than the one you master.
True is that MacOS It is not designed for people as "geeky" as Linux users. But that of having to activate the possibility of installing programs from outside your Mac App Store, and that the installation of these programs is so simple that if you don't know how to do it you can go crazy, it is also something that you have to learn.
Linux is not for everyone
Linux is for him type of user who is not concerned with learning new stuff. It is for those who want to have everything as they like, not as they are imposed. It is for those who want to be able to use a computer several years after it is no longer supported. If someone isn't comfortable with a kernel-based distro, they can try another, and if they can't find one… go back to Windows, really. Or not.
If the problem is that what works in one distro doesn't work in another, why not just stick with the one that works for you? You can also stay in Ubuntu, or better in something based on it, and a very high percentage of the information that you will find on the Internet will solve your doubts. But first of all, do your tests in VirtualBox.
A virtual machine can be your best friend
It was for me, and it still is today. With 2TB of storage, 1TB on the main drive, I have a host system and four Virtual machines in GNOME Boxes. One of them has Windows 11, and there I check that some things work, like when I play to be a programmer and I want to see if some of Python also works in the windows system. There are also tests that I want to do quickly, the first information I find is for Windows and I test it on that virtual machine.
And this also applies to those who have never used Linux and are thinking of making the "switch" (those who switch are known by the English word "switcher"). Before changing operating systems and start complaining by any means, it is worth doing as many tests as possible in VirtualBox. Or in a live-session. O installing a complete system on a USB. Will it be for options?
Nor do I get it out of my head that many of those who comment on these things could do so without having tested enough, or that they have never been Linux users and are "trolls". Whatever it is, stay in what makes you happy and allows you to be productive. And if with all that said you miss the windows... go back to Windows.
