this is fakenews, people who never tried linux use this obvious lie

It's not (entirely) an "obvious lie"; X is 90's era technology designed for a different purpose to the one it's used for, so there's tearing when not in (double-buffered) full-screen mode for programs using the standard APIs. However, it's far from "unusable"; all you get is a small, barely-noticeable tear across the screen when scrolling.

However, sudo apt install firmware-linux-nonfree fixes all of the other problems.
