Problem being anti-cheat implementations kill Linux compatibility. Also any game that facilitates modding, yea you are not modding the game in Linux.

TBH I'm thinking of picking up a new M2 Mac Mini

I'm indifferent between 10/11 thus far, although today I found the Android Subsystem extra to be super useful (a certain system I use for he and work is android/iOS only)
