I’m pretty sure that if I went up to my friends/family, pulled my pants down, ripped ass in their face, then handed them a USB drive with Ubuntu on it, that would have a better chance of getting them to switch to Linux than showing them this video.

“Normies” “Left wing propaganda” pretty sure this is a piss take, but in the off-chance it’s legit, get off 4chan and read some actual books, do some research, come back to the FOSS community when you’re ready to have a mature position.

This is possibly the worst thing I’ve seen all day: confusing pacing, the person doing the voiceover sounds like they’re taking the piss, weird manosphere alt right language, misleading information (or just presented poorly). This qualifies as a shitpost you pass around a chat server not a serious PSA.

Don’t take this personally, but I recommend deleting this and redoing everything. Advocating for the GNU/Linux operating system requires that you have a level of self respect and decorum with your work. Using bait isn’t helping anyone.

It started off well enough, but then it began talking about “left-wing propaganda” being promoted by Microsoft - an inherently right-wing capitalist corporation - and instantly lost all credibility. I expected it to degenerate into Covid denialism and tinfoil hat-wearing antisemitic conspiracy theories and tropes. Hardly a way to win over “normies” by sounding like an absolute freak in the first place.

Edit: Just checked and to be fair, the entire instance describes itself as “content on liberating your electronics from the tyranny of left wing Big Tech surveillance.” God that’s some mental gymnastics right there: left-wing capitalism. Please read a book.

Wish I could switch to Linux but there are several issues in my use case that make it (currently) impossible. :(

Im wanting my friends to try out linux, they are all windows normies. This is pretty aggressive approach. I applaud the enthusiasm, maybe there are some people who respond. Id try my own way by finding a distro that best suited to their use case. All an all, someone is doing linux spreading to the masses and at least we can call that a win.

When are people going to stop treating operating systems like religions? You don’t have to try and convert everyone you come across.

alpha-male Linux

Too much andrew tate? This sounds too cringe to be honest. I would not send this to any normie because they will think its for idiots like andrew tate or smth.

EDIT: The video is kindof good but its hard to watch because it constantly stops for 20seconds to load.

Video keeps stopping, worse website ever!

Probably a Linux server running the site.
