After having used Windows 10 for more than a month full time, I can assert it is garbage. Gnome Shell is better, Sway is better, XFCE is better. GNU/Linux in general is better.

WSL is also not that great, we can't use systemd, and installation of software like CouchDB just fails.

So I finally had time to go and buy a micro PC (HP ProDesk i56th gen) and a charger for my (now desktop) laptop. I finally feel like using a real computer.

What bothers me the most with Windows is the shortcut. They are inconsistent, not extensible not editable, and not ergonomic. For example, in GNOME, we have the hot corner triggered with mouse pressure, or the super key, from there you can do A LOT of things.

In windows however, you trigger the start menu with Super key, or the task overview with Super+Tab. You can't search in the task overview, and it is limited as "overview" aspect. as I keep losing my windows.


Also, the File manager fails short to open many WebDav locations, FTP, SFTP, etc. Lacks tabs, and is cluttered with features nobody uses. Nautilus looks sleek and does a ton more the Windows file manager. Even Ranger is more powerful.
