Hello everyone. I have never run linux before, so I have very minimal knowledge as to how everything works. I have been using computers for years, and I work in IT, but I have avoided Linux up to this point. With the recent changes in Windows 8, in addition to the fact that my favorite game developer is developing for linux now, I have decided I want to start making the switch over to linux. I play a lot of PC games, and I understand that not everyone will start developing for linux, so I plan to dual boot. Can you guys give me some suggestions as to which distro I should use. The only request is that I need something that gives me full control. I don't want to be locked out of anything.
