This OS look very promising. Check it out.
Am I reading wrong or you can't play MP4 files without buying an add-on?

iirc there are 2 $5 codec/decoder packs you have to buy for raspberry pi. but i think it's on a per chip basis, so as long as his cpu has the codecs enabled the os shouldn't have anything to do with it right?

It's not on the Pi. He said it's dual-booting with W10.

I was referring to cpus in general, like, as long as intel or amd or qualcomm etc. paid for the mpcodec licensing it should work with any OS regardless?

The player should pull them as dependencies in most distributions.

Is it just me or is it always Windows comes first when it comes to compatibility and options in everything? I did try other OS's but it was on the fly and I'm not an expert.

On another note, another school shooting with three student hurt (maybe dead)? This is sad

Windows is still the best option. The only reason I'd use Linux is for old computers or to learn CS.

In the Linux world there is too much silly competition. 15 different desktop environments, dozens of terminal emulators, display managers, text editors, image viewers, PDF readers, video players, music players, and if that wasn't enough, hundreds of distributions. All the same with a few changes that could be all integrated into one unified distribution. That, in my opinion, is why Linux distros aren't popular, thus, no one will write apps for Linux.

There are only a few distributions truly worthy of existing, like Arch, Gentoo, Slackware, Debian, Fedora, CentOS and that's it.
