@yakkoj I'm using Arch.

Almost nothing I run is a "supported" config.

@gudenau @yakkoj

With Arch you're fine, the AUR covers most things for you. Though it is not the same if you start changing components, libraries, compilers.

@danyspin97 @yakkoj Most games they support Linux say stuff like Ubuntu or Debian from what I've seen.


@gudenau @yakkoj

If you use Steam, they will all work. Otherwise there is Lutris. But gaming on Arch is imho even better than gaming on Ubuntu.
