The title of this post really made me giggle. Love it.
I agree with it being unfriendly, wholeheartedly, and I do love Linux. I'm hoping that Linux becomes a viable gaming platform sooner rather than later. Especially with Windows 10 not being awesome, and Windows 7 support ending in a few years. I use Windows 10 right now, for reference.
Anyway, thanks for the laugh.
Windows 7 and 8.1 are basically windows 10, just a different look.. They are data mining you exactly the same.
