Arch Linux is definitely not a distro for noobs and Diana originally rated it as the worst Linux distro EVER! But when you know how to use it you can quickly create whatever computer setup you desire. It has an awesome package manager which allows you to remove, download and install desktop environments, window managers and software with ease. Now Diana believes Arch Linux is the best operating system in the world that everyone should be using.

The mother in this video uses Windows XP (2001) as her main OS dual booted with Elementary OS (a fast Linux distro). Would you like to see her try out Linux, Mac, Windows or other operating systems through history such as Ubuntu Satanic Edition 666.8 (2010)? Then give your suggestions in the comments section. Give this video lots of likes, views, favorites and comments if you want my mum to try out other operating systems. I am open to any operating system suggestions you give especially if these videos go semi-viral (over 100,000 views). This channel is dedicated to me "introducing" people (mum, dad, me) to different operating systems they have never used before and leaving them to suffer in confusion struggling to do anything in an unknown computer environment... or see if these other operating systems are better than Microsoft Windows.
