Year of the Linux Desktop

by VadersFist Posted on: 1/17/2022

Build Description

This computer serves as my general purpose main computer for both work and enjoyment. Running Linux on it makes getting games working more interesting, but I've always been a tinkerer. I typically play games like RDR2, Witcher 3, Deep Rock Galactic, Rimworld, Celeste, and DOOM. I also use this computer for work and learning since my interest is in cybersecurity.
