If I were just switching from Apple or Microsoft now I wouldn't bother, the Kernel developers have taken their eye of they ball. The Wokey snowflakes seem more concerned with renaming areas of the OS, no more terms like Slave, Blacklist
Well, as they say, real
change must start at home, so I take at least some comfort in knowing efforts are being made to pull our collective heads out of the dark ages. It's the 21st century, after all, not the 1800s or even mid-1900s. Oh, and I'm also old enough to remember when California was crafting legislation to ban the use of the terms Master and Slave from computer systems sold there back in the... geez, I want to say late 1990s or early 2000s. So, if anything, the Linux kernel developers are rather a bit late to the party.
I am really pissed of with Linux, just as its becoming an OS that anyone can use it gets screwed up. I have been trying to get friends and family to move across, that wont happen again any time soon.
I know of no desktop OS of which the same cannot be said. Mac OS, Amiga OS (Workbench), MS-DOS, Apple II DOS 3.3 and ProDOS, Windows 1.0 → 10, Mac OS X, etc. All of those OSs can be (and have been) wrecked by users.
Please remember to mark your fixed problem [SOLVED].
Running Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.0.
