What makes Linux amazing?

I just took a HDD out of my Thinkpad X120e computer and stuffed it into a (new to me) Toshiba laptop.

Everything works. No fussing.

Even Windows has difficulty with this concept.

I'm happy that this was stress-free.

Note: Nothing is perfect. I know folks have written thousands of terabytes of issues with Linux booting on consumer hardware. Please think of the planet and don't share them in my mentions.

@craigmaloney This exact thing is largely what switched me over to Linux as my primary OS many years ago; had a computer with some hardware problems, which was dual-booting Linux and Windows with two different HDDs, and after some swapouts of some other components the Linux install still worked just fine and the Windows install . . . very much didn't.
