No worries, my biggest gripe is consumer gear which tends to focus on windows while having issues in linux. I run into no issues with company supplied stuff or purpose built systems. The 2 latest laptops i got recently for personal use are a cheap dell inspiron 10th gen intel that is ubuntu certified and a walmart brand motile 14 no name laptop. Ironically the dell has been a train wreck bios wise in windows and linux. The update fixed the ACPI issues in windows but not linux and then the function keys so far haven't been possible to correct. At the same time the no name walmart brand one was plug and play with linux so it goes both ways.There seems to be confusion regarding the term 'a better OS'.
When it comes to file system performance, scheduler performance including multicore threading and NUMA implementation as well as overall kernel efficiency - These are items relating specifically to the operating system and Linux is the better OS in relation to these factors. The same goes for updating efficiency and end user control over the updating process as well as updating reliability and operating system privacy and security. Considering these factors, Linux is the better OS.
When people relate to software availability, this has more to do with outright marketing and little to do with an unsubstantiated claim that an OS is better because there's more 'stuff' available for it. Furthermore, the idea that Linux is a software wasteland is in certain cases an exaggerated claim made up by misinformed Windows users unable to retrain their muscle memory and quite possibly stuck in the past. As stated earlier, there are many situations regarding printer drivers (HP) under Windows where the software is notoriously bloated and unreliable and it's unlikely to find high end consumer grade and professional level printers without easy to install Linux drivers where such devices aren't automatically supported out of the box under the kernel.
I had my Brother multifunction laser printer/scanner drivers set up in around 2 minutes including download time vs around 15 minutes including download time under Windows. The process couldn't have been easier and reliability is perfect, which is more than I can say for HP Windows drivers. I've also come across an outrageous number of perfectly good printers supported under Windows 7 that are no longer supported under Windows 10. Perspective is relevant.
If you're a professional requiring the use of specialized packages like the overpriced and under supported Adobe CC, stick with Windows. If you feel Microsoft Office, the worlds least compatible with ISO standards office suite marketed as the most compatible office suite is necessary - Stick with Windows. But bear in mind that most users don't fall into these categories and can quite easily get by using an alternative that's faster, respects their privacy, has a better updating process, is more secure and in many cases supports software that's available cross platform - I believe even Edge is being made available for Linux in the not too distant future.
When it comes to gaming, as stated Linux has quickly become the second most desirable platform under Steam when you consider full OGL compatibility, native Vulkan compatibility, Wine/DXVK/Proton support, overall driver availability (MacOS doesn't even support Nvidia hardware in it's latest iteration), quality of drivers, number of titles considering SteamPlay as well as diversity considering hardware platforms and cooling compared to devices that overheat easily by favoring sleek design over practicality - The only Apple device allowing for remotely decent cooling is the ~$50k Mac Pro, which is out of reach for most.
No small feat considering the amount of time Linux has been supported under Steam vs MacOS and especially Windows - No one's going to topple the OS that's on the device when you buy it unless Microsoft make a fatal decision that rightly pisses off their user base.
Please don't take this as a dig at yourself as that's by no means my intention, think of it as more of a comment in general. 100% agreed re: A computer is a tool and you use what's best for yourself and your situation.
