    Man, I would love to run a Linux box and still be able to run the like 4 programs I use my computer for, but I don’t have any interest in running an OS I have to build and make work. I got Redhat working once (feels like a million years ago) and I am just not that interested in my PC anymore. It’s a tool. I want it to work without any fiddling on my part. It has exactly 5 programs it ever has to run. I touch it on the weekends. Windows it is.

    This is me agreeing with you in every way.

      Fwiw Linux is way easier today than it was a million years ago. Honestly I find it simpler to use than Windows.

          Try it, Linux Mint just works put of the box, easy as hell. Even has GUIs for everything.

      Linux today is plug and play in almost all areas. Off the top of my head the ones that have problems are creativity (no Adobe and also wacky color management, though it’s getting a complete rework with Wayland setting it on par with macOS) and engineering (next to no support from big CADs).

        VR and my guilty pleasure games that still use ridiculous anti-cheat are holding me back for now :(

          I have played through Skyrim and No Man’s Sky in Linux VR. Valve has done a great job keeping up the development of Linux Steam VR, especially considering how low its market share is. It’s part of their nuclear option against Microsoft and Windows or something.

          Oh yeah, VR is currently a pain point too. Anti-cheat is an odd position tho, so I’d recommend checking out Are We Anti-cheat Yet? every so often.

          Many/most anti cheats are on Linux now too.

          In fact just yesterday I installed EAC so that I could play New World, and all I did was to install it straight from Steam before also installing the game from Steam.
