I’ve recently built myself a new gaming PC and with the way Microsoft is going with Windows, I was very reluctant to use it for the new build.
Thanks to Mutahar (SomeOrdinaryGamers on YT), I learned that running Linux as a primary OS for gaming is in fact very viable and I have since run a few of my favourites with little effort and they run beautifully with Proton.
Like many others here, I’ve dabbled in the past in various flavours of Linux, including Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Manjaro, etc. I’ve grown to really like the Arch style of running things, and eventually found out about EndeavourOS, given that I wanted something Arch based that is easy to setup.
Well, here I am now, running EndeavourOS and I’m really liking it. All the hype during my research seems to have been well placed.
Unfortunately I do still need Windows for a few things (Namely Photoshop and Clip Studio Paint) but setting that up in a VM and using VFIO to pass my old GPU to the VM was surprisingly easy and works very well.
