    Audacious, by far. I've tried to get out of it and use something like qmmp, quod libet, clementine, lisa, and many others, but they were either: buggy, lacked some feature I want or was outright borked,

    i installed linux mint like a month ago, first time linux user. it comes with a video player called celluloid which works well enough. im a long time mpc-hc enjoyer and i heard mpv would be to my liking but after some time it randomly stopped working. i use celluloid now. the included audio player rhythymbox also seems cool so far but i havent used it much

    i installed gparted so i could mount the hard drive i bought for media storage. installed gimp just because its gimp and people always talk about it. installed steam link to play games from my other pc. installed plex installed qbitorrent and lutris. only tried one game so far and it workd

      The handy thing is you can try any or many applications and since everyone has personal preferences you can get remarkably comfy in a short time.

      One advantage is many browsers including Tor browser so you can compartment your browsing using one locked down browser for shopping etc and another for goat porn.

      If you've an old Windows install with some things you may want you can make a virtual machine of it and run Windows and Linux at once. I make VMs of any old Linux or Windows install I may want as that's a very convenient portable backup.

    I typically just go onto GOG and check which games I have with native Linux support and install those. In case you don't know, the easiest way to install them is to download the SH file, open the terminal, type in "sh", press space, drag the file to the terminal (this will automatically enter the file destination) and press enter. This will start the installation process (no idea why I can't just click the file, it just doesn't start properly that way). Interesting fact in regards to GOG, there are currently 1738 games on GOG with support for MacOS and 1427 with support for Linux. That means the library of Linux games on GOG is only 18% smaller than the MacOS library on GOG, it's understandable that it's smaller (Linux is installed on way fewer computers) but it's kind of weird that the gap is as small as it is, right? And it's not like every game on one is supported for the other there are 622 games on MacOS not on Linux and 311 Linux games not on MacOS, kinda weird how that works out.

    Anyway, some people may disagree, I wouldn't really bother installing any Linux distro on new hardware and certainly not if I need to rely on it, Windows may be a RAM hog but it's not going to be a problem if you have enough of it. Linux is generally a weird pain in the ass to use, when I installed Mint on a laptop I needed to fiddle around with the settings just to make it work properly with a second screen, there are a bunch of little things like that which should be simple to do that are just complicated by Linux which makes me still recommend Windows as a daily driver. Which is really why I only recommend bare metal Linux on old laptops and budget builds. It's really only worth it as hobby thing, not for serious work. If you can't tell, I'm somewhat ambivalent towards Linux in general. I wish I could happily get off Windows and use Linux for more than experimentation or make old laptops function better.

    All distros are baby distros right now. Linux Mint is just the best distro, that's why it gets so much hate.
    I remember 10 years ago "it's just green ubuntu" "if ubuntu made cinnamon flavor it would be all over"
    guess what nobody uses ubuntu cinnamon and nobody recommends ubuntu anymore because everyone has realized that mint is better

    Though to be honest code editors are really debatable and there's no really great editor. Vim and Emacs have specialized modes that you can get quite adept with but you'll need regular practice to remember how to do basic shit. Sublime Text is closed source freeware, but it's powerful and has keystrokes for multiple cursors and a ton of other shit as well as a massive library of plugins for just about everything. Atom used to be github's open source alternative to Sublime Text but Microsoft decided to Embrace-Extend-Extinguish it to try to replace it with their bullshit VSCode. Atom was also built on electron and had weird random bugs.
    >Torrent Tracker: Transmission
    Though there may be better ones. Transmission is just what I use.
    >Image viewer: MComix
    Technically it's a comic book viewer (comic books are stored as an image gallery in a .rar but typically with the .crb extension) but it can open archives, images, pdfs, and folders. It's very fast.

        Cause I didn't include it in the screenshot

        but I like Quod Libet. and my stuff's also sorted by artist/album on my screenshot, it's just that albums aren't collapsed into artists like your 2nd pic, I'm more than fine with that. I could probably have them displayed smaller too if I change my settings, QL has a lot of options and is very customizable (and also follows my GTK theme 100%)
        >Multiple playlists
        laugh at me but I never use playlists kek. I usually just play albums, or I just do like I used to when I was in Windows and used foobar, which is add individual tracks to queue depending on my mood and play that

          >laugh at me but I never use playlists kek. I usually just play albums
          I play albums too (typically several of them in sequence, within a playlist), but it can be useful when you just want to play some other music without fricking up your playlists. Like if you want to pause real quick to check something with some other music you just downloaded or whatever. I thought playlists would be useless for me too until I started using them.

            to be fair I can browse playlists and stuff too. I just choose album view because that's what I use 99% of the time, but I can switch with keyboard shortcuts at any time
