I ended up using Endeavour OS as my main OS because the audio with my nvidia card didn’t work well when my nvidia graphics card was passed through to a Windows VM whereas it was fine when passed through to Endeavour. As I was teaching online using Zoom this was very important.
After that due to the fact that I was using linux when I upgraded my graphics card I went for an AMD card.
Because I’m running my desktop OS on top of a linux hypervisor it actually ended up that I could passthrough the AMD card to Windows with no issues. As a gamer, while the work that GloriousEggroll does is amazing I ended up back on Windows. Laargely because I wanted to play PC games on my LGC1.
Unfortunately some of the tasks I want to do don’t work very nicely in docker, so I needed to spin up a VM for syncing my online storage accounts and running calibre. Obviously I chose linux for the lower memory requirments and smooth access to my shared storage through NFS. As a result I’m happy to be an Endeavour user again.
