For my “convenience” and because in this way they can show ads and clickbait

Also: I SET A FUCKING GROUP POLICY THAT DISABLES THE SEARCH BAR; WHY THEY FUCKING IGNORE IT???

    I like Arch as well but there is a higher learning curve than with other distro and if you go for Arch go for EndeavorOS or another Arch derivative (except Manjaro).

    However, if you’re looking for something to let you game. Nobara is a distro that comes with all the gaming comparability layers and drivers preinstalled. It’s based on Fedora so it’s relatively up to date but not rolling like Arch.

      What would make Nobara better for gaming than Mint? All of my Steam games have worked fine. Do the things you’re talking about matter for games that are not in Steam/Proton? Just wondering!

        I mean at the end of the day it’s all Linux so it’s not so different and just a minor convenience.

        This is just for Fedora: comes with non-free audio/video codecs, non-free driver repos.

        For other distro: It comes with nVidea drivers, WINE, OBS, Blender, Proton, Lutris, and Flatpak set up/preinstalled. (drivers detected on install I believe) there’s also package and kernel tweaks to boost gaming performance, supposedly.

        In comparison to Mint: Fedora packages and kernel versions get updated a little faster than Ubuntu/Debian based distros.

        So Nobara takes a lot of the “pain” out of system setup for people who are new to Linux and gamers/streamers.

        I haven’t used it personally though I’m currently running EndeavorOS and using a SteamDeck for gaming.
