Great post!

I think it's worth to mention tiling window managers. They describes uniqueness of Linux desktop environment.

I've been using the awesome window manager called "awesome" for 2 years. It is pretty stable, highly configurable and keyboard centric.

awesomewm.org

Would love to try i3, Xmonad and other tiling window managers in the future.

Hi! Glad you liked it 🥰!
I didn't know the "awesome" but I had heard of i3... I haven't tested a tiling window manager yet, at most the PopShell extension that already comes with Pop!_OS kkkkk but I will research more about it!

Yeah!
Also I'm surprised you mention Pop!_OS.

I'm using system76 PC (Arch linux in it).
I've played with Pop!_OS for an hour and works well.

I use popOS too. I'm no gamer but I had NVIDIA driver issues with Ubuntu which I used previously. So, I switched to PopOS and I am happy about it.

Yeah, it has promising device compatibility. It's the reason to use that OS.
