@Kakeru I def agree with this 100% FOSS is the way to go. 🏆
@Wetrix @Kakeru That depends somewhat on the distro you use. But in general it´s not a big deal. I´m using manjaro and drivers are just available in the standard repos. Nvidia drivers are proprietary so for some distros you have to jump through a few hoops. Still it is not a big deal especially if you are not new to linux.
@Wetrix @mistermonster @Kakeru This is rather a matter of taste. For a beginner I´d recommend one of the larger distros. Especially if you're coming from windows Mint is a good choice in my opinion but you can also pick Ubuntu, Fedora etc. The desktop environment doesn't matter just pick what suits you.
For gaming Pop!_OS is a good choice because driver setup. But at the end of the day you can game on all of them.
I did try matrix tonight for about half an hour. I was immediately asked if I was a SJW in our privacy fed among other things 😆
I think I'll just stick to the fed. I'd spend too much time in there 🤣
