I want to switch to Linux, and I am a heavy gamer. Is there a specific distro for gaming with steam primarily?
Check out the Zorin Gaming edition. I just checked and I guess that would be the Ultimate Edition now. They used to have the Lite, Core, Business, Gaming and Ultimate.
Is SteamOS still a thing? If you want to run Steam, then I guess that would be the way to go.
Others to check out would be Ubuntu Gamepack, Fedora Gamespin and Game Drift Linux
