Apologies if this is in the wrong section, wasnt sure were to post it xD
I've been using linux a phew year's now, ive done arch, ive joined a phew communitys, done debian/ubuntu, and to be honest the most consistant rumour ive heard towards linux is "Linux makes your hardware last longer". Now, im very curious how true or false this really is vs any other operating system.
i understand linux uses less resources. but there are common hardware failures
like hard disks are still the most common devices to die without much explanation why
So im curious, has this rumour ever been explored, proven, or disproved
