    Hey everyone,
    So, I got a new PC. I want to install linux along with windows, but I don't know the best way.
    Whats the best way, and I heard there's multiple varients of Linux, if that's true, what's the best one for gaming?
    And how do I do it?
    Any suggestions?

    Have you already installled Windows on that computer? If not, install Windows first.
    Then install Linux. I suggest using Ubuntu 18.04, it should be good for any use including gaming.
    Use Internet Search Engines with
    how to install ubuntu
    to get answers to that.

    what is the reasoning for having both? if it's just to play around and learn Linux, the ubuntu bash shell is already included in windows 10, just needs to be enabled, so you can use a cli ubuntu directly within windows, install xming/xlaunch and you can open gui programs, eg firefox, gedit etc from there as well.

    it just means you don't get the full Linux desktop environment, but if you can live without that.....
