who kept it old school post your specs
iTunes was the hurdle for me. At the time I had the iPhone 3G, said app clocked in at some 9GB installed running a good half-dozen services. Drag-and-drop was a horrific chore since Apple wasn't going to just map the storage as USB like every other phone - instead you were expected to use some nebulous synch function from a single directory and let iTunes figure things out. I think I went through the exercise a grand total of about two dozen times before the phone stopped responding to iTunes altogether. I had zero interest in re-acquiring music I had already ripped to MP3, thus never spent a cent on music via Apple.Going from Android to Apple involves a big learning curve that is very frustrating at first.
Linux rocks!I have an old Lenovo beater of a laptop that's maybe 2017-ish. I suddenly needed to press it into service for something but with 4gb of ram on Win 10, it was unusably slow. So I added a 16gb module and... it was still unusably slow. WTH? Then I decided to boot it into Linux from a thumb drive and it turned into a fast machine! It looks like the Lenovo OEM version of Win10 is full of bloatware.
