    I have a perfectly capable (of what is required of it i.e Youtube/Netflix) laptop that will not support Windows 11, so when Win10 runs out of support, I’m planning on running some distro of Linux.

        I’m a bit intimidated to be honest. I fear losing the ease of using windows (and all my PS scripts functionalities :( )

          Honestly Linux is no harder to use than Windows nowadays, although it is different in places so there’s some “muscle memory” to overcome. I’m the opposite though, I cannot find anything under windows any more without checking in three wrong places first!

          Powershell is available for Linux. Of course, no Windows specific features will be available, but the syntax is there.

    I’m not much of a gamer but I’m tempted to run a couple games just to get included in the %. I wonder where they get the data from.

      As far as I understand, StatCounter gets data from people browsing the internet.
      They are probably partnered with a lot of sites in order to get all the useragent data of their visitors or something, idk. They probably have their method described somewhere.
      This is not Steam, where stats are gathered from random monthly surveys.

        I wonder if this 3% is actually slightly higher due to the more privacy minded Linux users generally avoid trackers and use user agent spoofers to avoid fingerprinting.

    I am a regular Linux desktop user because after trying very hard to justify buying a Steam Deck, I just wouldn’t use it. I don’t game on the go and I have a nice big TV and sofa set up.

    But the steam deck is so sweet.
