Nothing against Linux. But still way too much for an average gamer, not even mention average user. Which distro? Will the distro be supported the next 5 years or dead like many others? Troubleshooting? There's a real reason why LInux Desktop never took off for decades no matter how much we want to.

What about sim racing, or airplane sims? I mean: Richard Burns Rally, Falcon 4 BMS, rFactor2 (and one), Automobilista, iRacing, Digital Combat Simulator, Assetto Corsa, Race Room, X--Plane...

Project Cars is not a sim. Ace Combat isn't a sim either.

Sim lovers, love to have realistic sensations while playing. You can find true pilots driving iRacing (Nicki Thiim, Lando Norris, Max Verstapen, and many others), or true fighter pilots flying BMS... They may also do arcade gaming, but they don't spend money on making a copckit for a pad game...

Btw, is OSW linux capable? or Thrusmaster Warthog?

Is Arch easy to instal? may it work with my PC? it is a Red Hat distro, isn't it?

It is honestly that easy

In its current form its will NEVER EVER EVER catch on. I have tried PopOS and its a chore to work with, consistently get looping downloads, stuck installations, failed command lines in terminal copied word for word from websites and forums. Not to mention to get the most out of it you have to reformat your hard drives from NTFS to ext4 so you will lose your data unless you back it up. Then you have all the individual issues with games, some don't work with sound, some have worse performance, some need specific settings or yet another install of some buggy third party piece of software.

This isn't even mentioning the horrendous mouse cursor support popOS uses, the mouse movement feels terrible, going from popOS back to Windows 10 and instantly the mouse feels way more accurate.

I agree it IS the future, but in its current form you will never get the mass PC gaming people to move over to any distro. This needs a company like Google to actually release a proper linux based OS for the desktop with easy installs and up to date support for hardware and software. All these distros have terrible stores and almost always require use of the terminal or PPA's.

Your average user will never want to jump through all these hoops to just play a game when they can simply install a small .exe on Windows and after a download, load up a game and play. It needs to be this easy to use for it actually work.

Just look at android on smartphones, they are super simple to use, and have caught on easily. You take that ease of use away and slap in the terminal and PPA's and the install base of android would plummet and people would move over to iOS or even Windows Phone.

Ha it reminds me of android and apple users but instead you have more freedom on a free based OS vs. one you pay a lot of money for. I do run both OPS’s Ubuntu and Win 10, however I like the fact that you can do whatever you want on Linux and learn something at the same time.

What about FPS?

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Wait, NO RGB?! I'm done with Linux.🙄
Still too early for gamers, it's RGB everything right now and the anti cheat support is almost non existent. Good luck not getting kicked out of a multiplayer online game. BF4 and SC2 online play got me kicked out of a game when I tried this on Pop OS. So I guess I'm going to have to play on windows 10 again.

Manjaro delays updates by a month so technically it is not the latest but a bit more stable than mainline Arch.

Well as you said using the terminal can be fast and especially when you have to do the same thing on several computers. Windows also has this option through power shell.
What I really don't like about Linux is that even in Windows where you can do everything you want via command lines in CMD or Powershell for efficiency, you can also pretty much do anything via a GUI interface and not rely on learning CMD or Powershell commands at all.

With Linux on the other hand you often have to start using the terminal, writing in complex commands which is hard to learn than comparing to a GUI way of doing things, and you often end up installing and configuring drivers by googling and copy/pasting commands you have no Idea what is doing into the terminal.

There should be a linux distro where you can do absolutely everything via GUI that is easy to learn like Windows without ever having you use the terminal, but of course like powershell its always available to use if you want to. I feel like with Linux you are always doomed to use the terminal just to install/configure drivers and software or making changes to the OS.

I believe this is what scares people from changing from Windows to Linux.
