    Linux is terrible. I tried it once, but it was clearly bugged, it only registered 2-3% CPU usage, which is clearly nonsense, because my PC could barely run Windows. Upon further inspection, I saw that I had clearly been given the lite version of Linux - it was only a few gigabytes, about the tenth the size of a proper OS like Windows. It boots up in mere seconds, which just shows how empty it actually is. It doesn't even seem to have candy crush or popups telling me to get microsoft office. There was also this weird black window with white text. WTF? I messed around with it, and somehow this hacker called Sudo hacked into my system and got this virus or something on my computer, which made my screen have a moving wallpaper, which is NOT how wallpapers are meant to work. I couldn't even work out how to install the internet. There was just this thing called 'flaming fox' or something which seems like a rip-off of the internet, because when I browse the internet, I usually expect to end up with some sexy applications on my desktop which inform me about hot singles in my area. Well, apparently linux removes that feature! I tried to work out how to send my PC usage report to linux HQ like a good citizen, since apparently it doesn't even do that automatically, but apparently there is no HQ, only this dodgy hacker site called 'git' which I did NOT feel comfortable sharing with. I tried to install a program from legit-computer-downloads.ru, but apparently linux couldn't run trojan.exe. So I had to go to the weird black screen thing again, and TYPE WORDS to get a similar program installed. Again, it was a LITE (free) version. I didn't even get the option to pay for the full version! In the end, I got so frustrated that I decided to boot back into windows. Lo and behold! - apparently, linux doesn't even update! It just shuts straight off. Back in Windows, I couldn't even read the disk I had put linux on! Apparently, linux created some gibberish language called ext-4 which normal operating systems can't read. That, Sir, is called a virus.

    2013 was the Windows 8 era... which wasn't really a good OS. I would have still chosen Windows 7 over Windows 8.

    CRT - or cathode ray tube monitors.
    Bloody ancient and LCDs have long since made them obsolete

    edit: Oh yeah, CRTs also have screen burn in as well if you leave them in the same position. Many a time have I seen ATM machines and/or arcade machines with permanent screen burn.
