Want to install linux distro on laptop and i would like to have atleast simillar battery life like i have on win 10 ( 7-8 hours) and i really like mac OS style so question is if i should install elementary OS or someting arch with xfce and spend whole life customizing
and i would like to have fully working touchpad and trackpad on my thinkpad with touchscreen as well
tldr fag want to have mac OS looking distro with high battery life and working everything
> not gonna buy rMBP
> not gonna install gentoo
There is a distro that actually is a 100% copy of OSX, but you will need to donate first. It's called 'elementary OS'.
Oh and you won't get similiar battery life, Linux simply uses more. Why do you think freetards use 9cell batteries and other gimmicks.
what happened to having fair discussions.
Everyone that's not some 'install gentoo' tier teenager will admit GNU/Linux uses more battery.
Too bad this board is filled with underage freetards that simply lie about Linux just to make it look less pathetic.
Ot: why does anyone need that long of battery life anyways? I have a shitty 2011 thinkpad, battery lasts an hour and a half, two at most, and I never find myself in a situation where I can't charge for that long.
I guess equally. I've used eOS for a while but it's full of bugs and whatnot. Still looks gorgeous though.
Once again Linux is a server OS and also works on desktops/Laptops but is simply not optimized for this, it will drain more energy.
I was just wondering how is it with elementary os as os, if i wouldn't be better with arch and customize xfce to look simillar ( i mean in terms of drivers, hw support on my thinkpad etc)
i know that elementary os is based on ubuntu, but a bit outdated, but shouldn't be problem right?
Try leaving your basement for a change.

So instead of just getting any macbook, that would fulfil all your needs perfectly, you want a solution that would fail at everything?
If you're that much of a poorfag, get a macbook for 2014.
