Old windows guy/Recent Linux newb

Kissbutt section: Love the show.

It took me far too long to finally Debug/Fdisk and Format Windows out of my life and have been allbeit "taste testing" different flavours and distros of Linux over the last year. Problem is unlike the one size fits all of MSOS and MacOs, the linux realm seems like anarchy or wild west with groups here and there fanboying/girling over their prefered distros.

Looking for solid gaming that I dont have to go back to grad school to install (Hi Arch users).

thanks in advance
