Ok, update on this. I had installed OpenSUSE and it went really well but something about it didn't click. Mostly Gnome not being a first class DE. I didn't enjoy YaST, or the ruby 2.7 dependency. Zypper was ok.
Fedora got some love here so I quickly pivoted to 34 and I gotta say it's come a long way with my hardware. This may be a great fit once I massage out some DNS challenges with systemd-resolve that are minor.
@trevdev after drifting around everything, including suse and arch I am a happy Fedora user for years nlw
@charlag nice! I'm tempted to avoid installing NVidia drivers for fear of stirring Gnome's pot too much. I have one of those 'discreet' GPUs in a Dell XPS 15. Have you much experience to offer?
@trevdev Fedora has a repo with nvidia drivers so it might work? If Wayland is a problem you can always switch to X.
Do you only have a proper GPU or is it a hybrid? Idk what is the situation with hybrid.
