You'll be seeing me more and more :)
Anyway, I've decided to go with Manjaro KDE to replace Win10. What do you recommend I do once it's installed and ready to go? I'd like any tips and pointers for beginners, such as customizing my desktop and updating/installing drivers. Also your favorite WMs, file managers, etc. and why. Things I'll be doing the most include web browsing, indie games, ricing, and learning how to linux. Anything helps, thanks.

First thing first: sudo pacman -Syu to update and upgrade your system or use the update utility octopi. Since your running KDE it might worth take a look here https://userbase.kde.org/Tutorials Regarding the updating/installing drivers remember Linux isn't Windows and most necessary drivers are installed automatically, so don't worry for having to go on a driver hunt like you used to in Windows, however, should you need to install any proprietary driver for your hardware, google is always a good start. Pimp your KDE https://store.kde.org/ Web browsing, indie games, ricing and learning how to Linux is something you're gonna have to discover on your own. ;) I always advice people to create VMs, they can save time and trouble since one can try anything one would like to apply on a real pc without the risk of bricking the system. Install virtualbox and create a Manjaro KDE virtual machine, update/upgrade it and save it to a snapshot. Now you have a virtual system to try things out, learn more on how your system works, learn scripting, python you name it :D There's really no limits on what you can do inside a virtual machine, also, you can try as many other distros as you want. Oh yes, I love playing with VMs, have around 20 to have some fun :D
