Hey guys,

After months of using this amazing platform, I finally chose to join y'all and hopefully give back the same way many of you helped me with your guidance and recommendations for my certifications.

I am a cyber enthusiast and have a strong passion for ethical hacking/pentest. I love to break things and put them back together in my labs. 

Linux is the better OS. Prove me wrong. PS. I do not use Arch btw.
<b>Certification Goals:</b> CCNA, CCDA, CCNA:Sec, CEH, EJPT, ECCPT, EWAPT, OSCP<br>

    Good luck finding drivers for wireless adapters.  You could shell out $90 for a linux compatible one.  I’m not hating, but now a fanboy either.  I’m more of the “right tool, for the right job” type of guy.

    . . . . Linux is the better OS. Prove me wrong. PS. I do not use Arch btw. . .
    Windows seems to be more gentle in handling USB sticks without corrupting them. Let's see what else -- better iPhone support -- trying to plug an iPhone into Linux is an exercise in frustration. I've developed the opinion that Apple (not Microsoft) is the most anti-Linux company in existence, Darwin kernel be damned.

     To add to your verdict, don't forget about Windows cup holders.

     you can just plug your windows laptop straight to your dial-up modem through an rj11.

    I have no idea what point you are trying to make.  You said prove you wrong and I gave you an example where Linux is lacking.  Your response is some garbage about plugging a windows laptop to a dial-up modem through an RJ11. 

    You do know that modern laptops don't have those connections anymore, right?  Maybe you're not aware because you're stuck using an old laptop because that's the only laptop that your "superior" Linux WIFI drivers will work on.

    I had an old laptop that I installed Linux on.  The WIFI stopped working on it due to a lack of Linux driver support.  The WIFI worked when Windows was installed.  Obviously, Linux isn't better in that regard.  I later installed Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on the same laptop and a lot of my function keys were no longer functional.  However, they worked with Linux.  Linux is obviously better in that regard.  Linux couldn't run a bunch of Windows applications that I needed to run even when I tried them in WINE and there were no native Linux versions, so Linux isn't better in that regard for my specific use case.
