Update #4

Just announcing that finally I will be coming back on June 25th unlike what I promised for May 16th (ten days ago) because of the fact that I just don't have  the time. So yeah! Bye!

Update #3

Today, 16 april, I am announcing that I will take a 1 month pause so I can rest. I am taking this pause because for 1 month I will be focusing on other stuff like programming, the blog, ... etc. During that time I will be making the blog better and continue learning JavaScript. I will also be working on other projects that I will reveal at my comeback. Please note that my twitter will not be active during this time. Oh yeah! And today is my birthday! So yeah! Happy birthday to... myself.

Update #2

So The Linux Gamer just announced the Linux Game Jam 2018. Cool! Unfortuenatly I will not be participating because of the fact that I do not how to code in JavaScript and that if I create a game, I would definitly use Phaser as game engine. But I will still be coding a game (after I learnt JavaScript). It will not be for the Linux Game Jam 2028nor for the Linux Game Jam 2019. What I will announce is that it will be licenced un the GPLv3, that it will be coded in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, that it will use Phaser as game engine and that it will be codenamed Project-Hyperdeath. I will soon be opening a GitHub repository for it (speaking of GitHub, I have created a cool presentation about Linux you can download there becaused for my class Linux is still some weird thing that nobody uses (warning : it is in French)). Also, I will now start more updating my blog and posting more stuff in the IRL events section because I didn't really do much before (except sharing The Linux Gamer's videos, in this case it isn't really a blog) but now I will reallly start working on it. So yeah! Bye!

So of course, when I asked my parents if I could stay up overnight to watcch the stream, the said no. So this morning I went on The Linux Gamers's website and on the blog posts category I was listed. So yeah! Thanks!

Why you should prefer Linux to Windows #WhyIUseLinux

Hi, I'm Ryan and this is my first blog article and I'm writing this for the #WhyIUseLinux Project. This is at the same time an article about why you should prefer Linux to Windows and why I Use Linux. So yeah! Have  a good time reading!


Linux is the core of an operating system made by Linus Torvalds. And no, Linux isn't an extremely
complex operating system that requires an extremely good knowledge of computers to use. Actually, Linux is easier to use than Windows. Linux is Open Source, witch gives it huge advantages over Windows. For example on Linux you have much more choice than on Windows. There are loads of Linux distributions (distros) from which you can choose each having different features, desktop environments etc. Why are there so much Linux distros? Because, as said above, Linux is Open Source. So that means that anyone can edit the source code, create new distros etc. Even you can !
At first it may seem complex to choose a distro but the point is that there is no one choosing what distro you should use. Linux is also more stable. There are MUCH less viruses because it is Open Source. Because if no one can see the source code well no one can find patches for security problems and we will find out that there is a security problem only when it's too late and there is a massive virus or hack. Linux is also less buggy and there are also no blue screens of death (R.I.P Windows 8). Also, Linux is free both in terms of cost and software. You don't have to pay 100 or more bucks just to get an OS. You can even game on Linux ! (OK it has a little bit less performance than on Windows but we don't really care). It is actually better to game on Linux because you have more choice than on Windows and having more choices is why PC Gaming exists (Some games even run faster on Linux than on Windows with the Vulkan API)

Just one last thing : Linux is everywhere. Nearly all supercomputers run Linux. Nearly all the internet is powered by Linux. Android phones and even the Librem 5 Phone runs Linux. Linux is on Raspberry Pi's. Loads of connected objects run Linux. Even the ISS runs Linux!There are also loads of other stuff that run Linux.

To resume, Linux is Open Source, Free, more stable, leaves more choice and lastly is much better than Windows and this is Why I Use Linux.

If you think I forgot to say something or if you have any questions important feel free to tell me in the comments!
