I’m currently using Ubuntu 14.04.4 in dualboot with Windows 8.1. I’m thinking about changing ubuntu for antergos, while keeping the dualboot with windows, because I read that Ubuntu 16.04 will ditch the fglrx driver and I’m afraid that, in the future, my r9 270X won’t be well supported by Ubuntu. Because I play TF2 and CSGO on a regular basis and record for my youtube channel, I need to have the best performance for my hardware, even if from the open source graphics drivers. Since Antergos is a rolling release distro, and way more accesible than arch linux, I am thinking about changing my main linux distro for Antergos. However, before I make that decision, I’d like to know:
- Does steam work well on Antergos? I ask this because I think Antergos is not oficially supported by Steam.
- Will I be able to install the Amd Crimson 15.12 drivers for my Gpu?
- Is the open source driver performance acceptable (80+ fps on CSGO is my standard) on the R9 200 series?
- Will I be able to use Kdenlive, Audacity, Open Broadcaster Software and VLC on Antergos? (kind of a silly question, but anyhow…)
Anyway, sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for the help. I’d really like joining the Antergos community, I just want to make sure the change will be good for me :)
