linux desktop operating systems images [debian, ubuntu]

pro linux:
*hopefully no spy like prism (google and microsoft work together with prism)
*fast install and update (windows takes forever to download an update, and it takes forever to install it when you shutdown pc)
*usefull progressbar (windows progressbar shows no percentage, you do not get very much informations)
*hassle free install of a program, simply type: sudo apt install application_name (also installs all dependencies, no missing dll-files or net-version)
*you can fix bugs yourself cause it is opensource (no need to deal with updates that breaks everything again..)
*no bad company behind it (all done by a community)
*support for a very long time also for old pcs
*learn new things
*less security problems (do not need to buy a security software)
*you can tweak it a lot so it fits your needs
*there are lot of different linux distributions:

+most other distributions are based on debian (reliable)
+truely opensource and free
-not always the latest version of free software
-not every wirlesscard is supported by default (maybe have to install some software alone)

ubuntu(based on debian):
+big company behind it -> will not be gone in some time (reliable)
+easy install
+supports most wireless cards out of the box
+easy install of the latest versions of a program (ubuntu ppa’s)
+lot of tutorials for ubuntu
