Because Windows has such a widespread grasp on the PC market, driver manufacturers tend to focus their efforts on that one operating system.
Which means companies like AMD and Nvidia prioritize Windows over Linux.
You visit some website, go to their download section, and click on the link that sends you an EXE file.
You run it and the program does its thing and that’s when you consider it to be “installed.” And when you want to remove programs, you have to mess with the Control Panel. With most Linux systems, you won’t have to deal with that anymore.
As long as you have the proper mental preparation (knowing that Linux won’t guide you by the hand) and as long as you have the will to live (knowing that you’re likely going to have to reinstall Linux once or twice before you get the hang of it), you’ll find yourself enjoying Linux in no time.
