What distro do you recomend for gaming? My PC Spec: Intel i5 , 16 GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 1060 6 GB :)

@Madiator2011Gaming depends where you get your games: but definitely an Ubuntu derivative since that's where most people are and where you'll have the least amount of problems. I don't have much experience with gaming on GNU/Linux since I need W$ for pirated games anyways (yes I know it's bad, but I don't have 200$ to spend on DLCs per game I already own but is unplayable without them).

@Madiator2011Gaming I have a very similar rig and I'm running Debian testing with MATE DE. I have issues with having a windowed game running + watching videos in Firefox. I haven't figured out the cause.
Other than that, I haven't had any problems. I use Lutris and Steam, and play games with WINE as well as native.

@Madiator2011Gaming @fatboy I use Solus for occasional gaming (NVidia also) and it's the best Linux Gaming distro I had so far ;)

@Madiator2011Gaming tbh I run latest Ubuntu because when I want to game I want as little fiddling as possible

@leon_allen I had it too on my laptop but I had problem cause I had Nvidia optimus
