A post about why playing games on Linux is not for everyone yet, on Forbes: medium.com/@killyourfm/6-month Note that I dont agree with everything in there, but the fact that it's not beginner friendly is certainly true.

Trying now to install Antergos on a different laptop, and the installer fails because one package changed name on Arch. Ugh. This is not the first time that Cnchi, the installer, fails at doing its job.
