Leaving Linux after a decade - which OS now?
 
Unfortunately linux no longer matches my needs as i want to use a graphics tablet and wantbto do encrypted backups with an easy recover system. Which OS would you move to if you were leaving Linux?

Something is off here, registering to a Linux forum while leaving Linux. Why bother registering? I think if this thread is not locked ASAP we will just get one of "those", endless trolling and troll feeding.

Nothing off. Genuine question.

I'd pick something that I liked and felt worked.

Saying this sort of question here tends to get some harsh replies.

Registering on a Linux forum and immediately asking what to use instead of Linux definitely feels like trolling.

At best, this question belongs in General (not Linux - General), but even then it amounts to an Apple vs Microsoft thread, and unlikely to be constructive.

Which graphics tablet - are you sure that drivers are not available? And encrypted easy to use backups is no problem in Linux so you can stay on the light side probably

A Wacom or Intuos from Argos. Im on Ubuntu 20.04 at the moment. I love the open source ethos but need a graphics tablet that will work. They sell them at Argos here in the UK.

Seems a shame to toss your whole OS just for that - Wacom support for Ubuntu seems pretty active to me http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...4/wacom.4.html have a look!

All I had to do to make my Wacom work on Slackware current was to plug it in.

Wacom Intuos small model CTL-4100, but any Intuos should work the same.

Edit: running kernel 5.4.59

I found a Wacom Bamboo CTL-460 at the local CEX computer game/phone/electronic exchange shop in the UK for 20.00. I asked if it worked using Linux but they had no idea.

"Can you show me it working with Windows then?"
"Sorry, we don't have the drivers."

I bought it anyway.

I'm running Linux Mint 18.3, plugged it in and it just worked! Shows up in the Graphics Tablet control panel.

Play Bonny!

I think it is wrong forum. OP need support for hardware he thinks is not present in Linux. Let us find why OP's tablet doesn't work. I won't help - I don't have tablet. If this is UBS device there is standard procedure to follow. At the end why ask Linux users what to use instead of Linux? Not many around the world systems with enough good hardware support. Essentially it is part of Xorg to support graphic device. I think it is not difficult to diagnose why OP tablet doesn't work.
