90% of people that I know would be perfectly fine with Linux and probably have a much better experience than with Windows. They have asked me countless times to clean/reinstall their Windows computers because they get clogged up.

This is really good. The only reason Linux hasn't gained popularity because it never came out of the box with laptops or computers.

I know Ubuntu is working on OEM OS's to better support their needs.


Problem with that is the Linux community is not going to like OEM bloatware. It just looks weird to have a Lenevo software pop up on bootup.

Only downside to this is it'll make it more popular. Which means more malware.

Maybe we'll get one OS where their garbage docks actually work.

I wouldn't mind some sort of control center, even garbage one. Have you tried managing fans on Linux?

Sorta, Green With Envy for GPU, but otherwise I've stuck to UEFI. I've always disliked OS level fan control anyway, I just want to set it up once and be done with it.
