Just an update.
About 6 weeks into using Linux.
Having tried most of the popular distro’s with varying degrees of success. I now have two distros installed on the system on separate SSD’s.
On one PC with a 4K monitor Fedora was a no go. It doesn’t include GPU drivers during install. Having to map all these pixels in software mode and it lagged so badly that the mouse pointer would disappear for several seconds at a time, making installing the GPU drivers manually impossible.
The two distros i’m using is Ubuntu 19.10, and being new isn’t that stable. It’s very pretty, but stability needs to improve.
Linux Mint on the other hand is rock solid and very slick, and it has now become the one I prefer.
I’ve been using Linux so much lately that I have to think how things are done on Windows 10 when I use it.
Gaming on Linux has come a long way, thanks to NVidia in particular actively supporting driver development, with new drivers nearly as often as they release new Windows drivers.
IMO, Linux still has some catching up to do with Windows. Windows as a whole just works with just about any hardware out of the box, Whilst in Linux its a bit hit or miss, and you need to at least have some basic knowledge of how to issue commands in terminal.
I will be continuing to use Linux Mint, and we’ll see how things develop in the near future.
