Why Linux Sucks on the Desktop

Over the last few months, after having been cheesed off with Windows 10, I tried to embrace a pig with lipstick. I tested most of the trendy Linux distributions on my Dell XPS 15 L521X, and found none of them could replace Windows as a decent desktop OS - for me, that's a responsive desktop that runs common software chrome, skype(and supports the built-in webcam), video and audio works.

I just came across an article that succinctly summarizes why Linux is not ready for the desktop in 2017,"Major Linux Problems on the Desktop, 2017 edition"

 I will try again in 2018 and see if things have improved, but given Linux has been this awful on the desktop for YEARS, I'm not confident.
