Should I swap to Linux?

Mon, 2018-07-02 16:04

Hi, I've just finished a clean reinstall of Windows 10 on my PC and it is already having issues so I started thinking of trying out Linux.

My main problem with Windows is that when an error occurs, fixing it is as if Microsoft has purposedly designed the system so that you can't properly access and control the function that isn't working.

I've heard that Linux allows more control over your system. I am also interested in learning about computers and am planning to study in the IT field starting next year. I have also heard that the community of Linux is more helpful and better in general than the windows forums.

I have two main concerns though: I am a novice in programming. I have just started self-learning python so I only have the most basic grasp of coding. I like videogames, though except for DOOM 4 and The Witcher 3 I never play modern AAA games. How hard is it to play them on Linux?

Aside from games I use the system for light photo editing, school stuff and minimal coding.

My PC specs (if they are a factor): A10-5800K (2 cores 4.4GHz AMD) x64 based RX560 - which I frequently OC with the manufacturer's provided software 8GB RAM

So should I give it a go or not?
