Void on a ZFS Root. It has a 13 year old budget laptop CPU and a very slow HDD.
But it is snappy and it uses less RAM than Xubuntu and Mageia + XFCE.
It is unbelievable that this kind of super recent kernel works so flawlessly on 13 year old hardware.

How does Lutris run on it?

I haven't reinstalled it on the release version yet, but it ran without any issues for bookworm (12) testing while I used it. I mainly used Lutris to play the GOG version Cyberpunk2077, but also installed games from Humble Bundle and the Ubisoft UPlay client.

Currently I'm running the battle.net client through Steam. Once installed, I just start it as a non-steam game and then install any games from there (Diablo IV in the screenshot).

I'll probably stick with 12 until something I want to do needs a newer kernel, or updated versions of mesa than are in stable. At that point, I'll just switch the repos over to testing and have the latest stuff.

Well with ubuntu 23.04 pipewire is now the default audio engine. Much better quality sound. A lot more setting up though. Oh well... time marches on..

I can never go back to Ubuntu due to their policy decision on flatpak. But yes, pipewire sounds better.

After a rough July with Linux problems and distro hopping, I'd just about hung it up. A popup in Windows 11 advertising something for OneDrive or Microsoft365 was enough to remind me why I bother. Back to Debian. Also back to Cinnamon after time with Gnome, Plasma, and a little Budgie.

Been using this Gentoo install for a while now, currently setting up a wine prefix with dxvk + Kerbal Space Program to see if it'll outperform the native OpenGL based build.

I have a feeling it will, OpenGL is kinda piggish vs dxvk and Vulkan:
