Windows is still the best operating system for a gaming PC due to the widespread developer support (software and hardware) and sheer number of games available, but let’s give Linux its due. Gaming on Linux has improved leaps and bounds over the years. Some games even run faster on Linux than they do on a Windows PC, as a recent Red Dead Redemption 2 benchmark battle on YouTube demonstrates.

It’s an exception. PC games generally run faster in Windows than they do Linux, rather than the other way around. This can be seen in various performance comparisons conducted by Phoronix, for example. There’s one in which the site pits Windows 10 against Ubuntu with three Nvidia graphics cards, including a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Windows wins handily. Same goes for another benchmark comparison using Radeon hardware (RX 580 and Vega 64).
