    yeah it's pretty difficult to configure it right
    Just use Arch Linux, it's literally the simplest distro.
    Copy the commands from the wiki for your graphics card drivers (use proprietary if you want smooth experience) and it's going to work. I used to play CSGO, Factorio, Hades and similar games on Linux and it worked flawlessly. It felt a little bit different from Windows, but I don't know if it was better or worse. Just different (in terms of input lag or mouse movement I'm not sure if it was smaller or bigger than Windows but when I returned to Windows I felt a difference)

    The only games I couldn't play were ones with anticheat

      *It worked flawlessly from Steam

        Personally I'd probably recommend something downstream of Ubuntu. Kubuntu is a popular choice for good reason. Linux Mint isn't kept as up to date but still a pretty good experience.
        I'm not the biggest fan of Canonical but using relatives puts you at the crossroads of the most dedicated software support and the most available online help resources.

          Kubuntu was my second choice and im kinda regretting not going with it, main reason for it was Snap as everyone is shitting on it, i didnt want to go either Mint because i hate Cinnamon its both uglier and less customizable than KDE, if they'd offer official KDE support id go Mint in a blink, my third choice was EndeavourOS but i didnt want to dabble with Arch frickery again, so i guess Kubuntu it is

          Last gayming test i did was in nobara. Proton guy made it. Everything worked then.

          i could try it, but im looking something to daily drive and from what i've seen the Nobara is made by one guy with very few contributors so it makes me wonder what kind of support it'll have

            Half the reason I recommend not going with straight Ubuntu gives you more flexibility. My laptop is on Kubuntu for instance and on top of having easy Flatpak support, it's pretty simple to purge the one or two remaining Snap packages of note. None of the KDE software comes in snaps and the default package manager interface has native support for Flatpak, you just need to point it at the repo.
            Firefox is basically the only snap left out of the box and that's an easy fix.

          actually the more i read into it Nobara might be exactly what i'm looking for, comes with things i want pre-configure/pre-installed

          Idk man for me arch really is the easiest and just werks. I never had a problem with it, and "easy" distros like ubuntu or debian are difficult for me because they come preconfigured with some bloated stuff and I don't know what manages what. On arch I build everything from the ground up by myself. I only use window managers (suckless dwm) because it's the easiest.

          But I use the terminal for everything, GUI on Linux feels inconsistent and incompatible.

          I would still go with something arch based like manjaro, because the arch wiki is really helpful and 99% of software is in AUR, and installing them on Ubuntu or Fedora distros is annoying.
          Especially avoid Fedora I'd say. It's the least popular out of all and you have to search for ages for many packages, when on arch it's just one command from the first web search on the wiki.

          I'd say try arch again, use the archinstall script and setup proprietary graphics drivers. Watch some guides on YouTube if you're stuck

          i did install arch "the wiki" way and it booted up, but its afterwards the issues started popping up, audio not working, external display not working correctly, easy to brick stuff(i soft-bricked it about 10 times), tried it originally with xfce and then kde and it was generally not very stable, thats i went to a different extreme now which is Debian

            If you're not experienced with Linux you can play with other distros first, maybe the Kububtu will be good
            I don't particularly like package managers like snap or flatpak, I don't even understand them tbh, but maybe it's good
            But if you ever want to try arch use the archinstall script for your very first time, you can install it manually another time if you decide you like it and want finer control

It's just the least supported architecture, so if you want to do something unusual you might have problems. But on arch and ubuntu based distros it's probably already been done before and you can find help.

        Idk man for me arch really is the easiest and just werks. I never had a problem with it, and "easy" distros like ubuntu or debian are difficult for me because they come preconfigured with some bloated stuff and I don't know what manages what. On arch I build everything from the ground up by myself. I only use window managers (suckless dwm) because it's the easiest.

        But I use the terminal for everything, GUI on Linux feels inconsistent and incompatible.

        I would still go with something arch based like manjaro, because the arch wiki is really helpful and 99% of software is in AUR, and installing them on Ubuntu or Fedora distros is annoying.
        Especially avoid Fedora I'd say. It's the least popular out of all and you have to search for ages for many packages, when on arch it's just one command from the first web search on the wiki.

        I'd say try arch again, use the archinstall script and setup proprietary graphics drivers. Watch some guides on YouTube if you're stuck

        Debian stable serves you "tested and proven" stuff. Like a century old hardwood furniture. It's good for stability. Not so good for getting recent features.

        If you want games you should go for a rolling or frequently updated distro like Arch that contains the latest fixes to the graphics stack. SteamOS is based on it for a reason.

        >dont say arch
        Perhaps opensuse tumbleweed or fedora rawhide or might work. There's a bunch of other choices, but I haven't tried using steam on anything but Arch.

      tried Kubuntu, doesnt work
      tried Nobara again, just werks
      i would've preferred Kubuntu, because i like apt over yum and its also a much cleaner KDE but Nobara just comes pre configured for shit to just work

      True. I do not use Windows at all anymore, but I do miss the ease of, as you said, "plug and play". Things just work out of the box, at least most of the time. Yesterday I looked for an EPUB viewer, so I searched for it through the package manager and none of the 6 different viewers that I tried worked properly (either could not be installed due to some build or download error, did not launch or did not render the file correctly). The closest I got to was Foliate - it opened a file but could not render a single page.

    Consider that you're trying to use Windows software that's not supposed to work at all on Linux. Ask the developers to release Linux binaries and you'll have better luck with it

      Fixed. Binary software releases for Linux are awful because nothing is compatible.

        Then how does stuff work just fine through Wine? Wine should suffer from the same problem you described.

          wine emulates windows libraries and APIs, which are kept stable. wine itself uses Linux libraries to implement the windows stuff, but if something breaks on Linux, you only need to adjust or rebuild wine.

        What's stopping game developers from releasing their games with statically compiled libraries?

          That causes problems when linking to certain libs, like graphics drivers and GUI libs.

            Graphics drivers are also not kept stable on Windows, so that's a moot point.
            Not sure about GUIs, but I think there are old stable ones.

            >Graphics drivers are also not kept stable on Windows, so that's a moot point.
            You're talking about kernel drivers? No, Linux graphic drivers (just like Windows one) live partially in userspace. Basically you need vendor specific code in your application to use the GPU. Both on Windows and Linux this is done with dynamic linking. So you have no other choice but to dynamically link with OpenGL or Vulkan. This in turn means you have to dynamically link libc, because unlike on Windows, there's no way to have multiple libcs in the same process. Linux dynamic linking isn't as isolated as Windows DLLs.
            >Not sure about GUIs, but I think there are old stable ones.
            Don't know what you're talking about. They could statically link GUIs, but then multiple things wouldn't work, like theming, which often requires dynamic linking to theme engines.

    Ubuntu is my favorite. It is debian based and has a Desktop and Server distro.
    Most of what I do with Linux is on the CLI.

    Nano = Notepad
    Lynx = Internet explorer

    Those should be in the repositories. Make sure to run the Sudo apt update and Sudo apt upgrade commands regularly. (:

    Well it's hard to make things made for one os work on the other (with the two oses completly incompatible with each other). The fact that wine exists is a miracle of its own.
    In this particular case I don't see the setup as much of a downside. I love my games and don't uninstall them, so I can bother to google for a day to make it work on my linux machine.

    If you use Linux for the first time you may find bugs or inconveniences. If you stick with it, you will get used to it. And if you come back to Windows later, you'll notice it has its fair share of bugs and inconveniences too. Both have problems, but at least Linux is free and open. Just don't game on Linux.
