My setup is Win10/Manjaro KDE dual boot btw.
I've been using Windows really often lately since KDE's scrolling isn't fast enough to satisfy me.

In the works of making a Linux tutorial for PMC users.

Right now, I'm using Ubuntu MATE. This has been my go-to distro.

Putting Manjaro MATE on my older laptop to get familiar with Arch.

I like MATE because it is reliable and the tools that come with it are fast and simple. Every tool serves a clear, set purpose that doesn't bleed into other tools and it's nust very easy to use.

Ubuntu MATE also lets you use a bunch of different desktop layouts at the click of a button and it's a godsend. Fucking love Ubuntu MATE.

I have a dual-boot system with Windows 10 and ElementaryOS (Ubuntu-based). I only use Windows for games that are not supported on the Linux platform, other than that I'm almost always on Linux.

I only have one game in my Steam library, the others are things like The Sims which have their own launcher.

You should try Lutris, bro. They have all these scripts users make to walk you through installing all types of games, Windows or not. I think there's an installer for Origin, too.

Any comments about Linux Mint? I am thinking of converting to a new system. Linux mint seems very promising.

If you're new to Linux I recommend Linux Mint or Ubuntu (for Linux Mint, if you have a decent system, use the Cinnamon version; if you use a lower PC and still want to go with Mint, use Mint MATE) (If you go Ubuntu, use Ubuntu MATE).

I'm recommending both of these because they're both easy-to-use and just stable. Statistically you will have the least amount of problems.

Be sure to use a LTS version so that you get long term support and stable packages (program versions).

Thanks for your answer. It's a good thing that you mentioned low-end PC's. I happen to have not the best metal on the market.
I guess now I will look into Mint MATE.

Yes.

Just to clarify, in Linux you get to choose which desktop you want. With this in mind, there is no difference between Mint Cinnamon and Mint MATE. They're the exact same distribution, the only difference is that they have a different desktop installed with the rest of the packages in the system.

Basically, in Linux, the desktop is essentially just another package, or program you can install, like a game, art program, etc.

If you have Linux Mint Cinnamon installed, you can actually remove the Cinnamon desktop and replace with the MATE desktop with a few commands.

What's the point of having different desktops then? Customization preferences?

I recommend Arch based distros because you will get the benefit of having all the latest updates. Most AUR packages needs to be compiled though. The compiling process is a pain in the butt especially with GZDooM.

I actually heard from other Linux users that not all games work well in terms of performance on the system.
I do know however that Minecraft works like magic on the system.
True?

Yeah, Minecraft works just fine on any Linux distros. Forge even boot up faster than on Windows

Yes because Java itself is native to both Wondows and Linux.

Since Linux desktops have a lot less overhead in terms of resource consumption, your system has a lot more breathing room to do the programs you want to run rather than just the OS.
