Tools tools I hate this autocorrect thing.

I think mx is overrated, tho.

MX linux has a bunch of live USB topla out of the box. It's great!

@Cyanwasserstoff Yes, Live USB worked just fine and after I started the system... nothing. So I had to disable graphical boot at first then after updating the drivers I could finally boot.

Speaking of the devil... Nvidia Turing support is not quite there yet.

@tion74: Did Manjaro fail to boot with the "non-free" drivers, too ? Could you get to the section where you can select the drivers ?

tion74 | Jan 14, 4:30 PM
@Cyanwasserstoff Well, I think I mentioned earlier but Manjaro and also Antergos weren't a great out-of-the-box experiences for me (they failed to boot and the reason were nouveau/nvidia drivers). And it wasn't new hardware either because it was a 1050 Ti. I also had a difficult time to install Mint on machine with a... I think... it was a 750 Ti. I'm not quite sure but it was an even older card.

I know it's not the usual use case but I have a bad time with dealing problems with virtualization (for example the infamous "Code 43" error on Windows VMs). There are always workarounds but dealing with this kind of malice from nvidia is tiresome.

If I have a choice than I won't support them with my money anymore. Let's hope AMD and Intel will improve themselves to a point where we can call them competitors.

And Nvidia drivers are also dodgy at best.

In my case the Nvidia drivers 440.44 are working butterly smooth and I cannot report any performance issue on Linux kernel 5.4 Manjaro KDE Plasma. It runs with games as smooth as on Windows 10 Home.
I am using the Nvidia RTX 2060 Mobile.

@Neek3: Even though Nividia is not open-sourcing their drivers, they are at least providing us with (in my case at least) drivers that work with great performance.

"That said, I still prefer them over Nvidia despite all this..."
And Nvidia drivers are also dodgy at best. It's kind of funny but for me the most stable GPU in my system is my Intel UHD 630.

@Neek3 Thank you for the summary. It seems like then I have to wait a little bit longer. I read about the driver issues on Windows but I thought they didn't have those on Linux because AMDGPU is a fairly new package.
