5 mistakes developers often make when starting to use Linux
1. Think of Linux as Windows/macOS
Linux can do almost everything that mac or windows can do, that's completely true but it doesn't work the same way you usually do it, for example the drivers on Linux are very limited, from NVIDIA drivers Either your device driver is proprietary or resides in the Linux kernel, or the driver most likely will not be supported. You can compile some third party drivers for a few peripherals but in general your drivers are in the kernel, you will get newer drivers when you update the kernel and the file system will be different and the location of The file will also be very different.
2. Linux distributions
A distribution is basically just a way to package the Linux kernel into some system tools. A desktop basically manages a few drivers, a few packages, and that's what users usually think. Beginners will tend to install or gravitate towards a particular distribution because of its interface. They tend to forget or don't know that they can replicate the interface on virtually any other Linux distribution. You can get themes and icons and what you need is a desktop environment, not a composite. Because the DE will decide the look and feel of that distribution.
3. Having difficulty with the interface
I've met people who switched from one distribution to another because the close button on the window was on the left instead of the right :v. It all comes down to the fact that people usually don't do much customization, you can edit a few things in mac os or on windows but it's very limited or you can use third party tools three and break your system, this doesn't happen on Linux, you can almost edit or change anything without changing the desktop environment (DE).
4. Expect Windows/Mac software to work on Linux
The fourth mistake Linux beginners make is expecting all the programs they used before to work on Linux. Linux cannot run Windows programs or Mac programs. Instead, you must use alternative software that has similar functionality to the old software.
Therefore, before switching to Linux, I recommend you find out whether the specialized software you often use can work on Linux or not? If not, is there any alternative software with similar functionality?
5. Follow CLI instructions blindly
The fifth mistake that Linux beginners often make is following online command line instructions completely blindly. Most tutorials for Linux are written using command line commands, because for the author this is easier than designing GUIs on different DEs.
