- games are more and more focusing on the ever increasing attention-deficit populace that's their target audience. We used to worry about the 9 seconds attention span gen and we're already down to less; in the span of a mere few years.

- games, made to a good extent by said same people they cater to, no longer seek or strive to differ, but instead follow well-defined norms. Lack of need for a manual says a lot more than most appear to think.

And i could go on.
We've always had "games".. we've always had entertainment. And we've always had forms of them that were base/baser, or lacking in quality, etc.; so nothing new one would think?
Wrong.
Because this latest plague of vidya gaemz!!111! has infected billions, regardless of their age/maturity, the planet over.
A matter of scale

Nonetheless, if this latest breed of humanoids (again, of all ages) can at the least do some good, as it has with the PC market growth? Or to bring us on topic, with a wider Linux adoption? Hey, all good by me!
gotta tie in the cell phone addiction to it too. billions of people weren't gaming until cell phone gaming, and AFK arena style titles came along. Consoles got games to the hundreds of millions, phones get them to the billions. This puts us the OG Gamers at risk of being drowned out by the noise of the phone zombies. Luckily, this won't last all that long. The market will either correct, or segment. Great of example of this is ubisoft holding watch dogs until PS5.

folks wanna mash WASD+SHIFT and click without thinking thru 200 hours of hollow egypt, without having to spend a moment figuring out a new/different mechanic applied to a different/new bind location. The last two far cry, & the last two assassins creed are almost identical games. They just look different. You're mashing all the same keys to complete the same objectives in the same manner in both titles, while using nearly identical crafting systems. Such wasted potential really. If you think i'm wrong, then why does Divinity appeal to such a small audience? Because its a game that requires brain. (it's also kinda boring unless you're a D&D rules fan)

this is even triggering me in RDR2. You can't ride your horse into camp at full speed, & bail to perfectly land next to dude, while holding E to start the next cut scene. They also force you to walk while in camp, and certain buildings. All this realism is annoying!

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

As to the latter.. i'd ask you to consider what and how you consider as a "fact" (nevermind the implications) and forget about me altogether; be i in the right or wrong, secondary matter.

It now takes me less than a day and i'm still a novice.

When we first heard news of what win10 would be like (no real Win7 Pro equivalent, a downgrade for each tier and no way [as always, granted] to legitimately own Enterprise) and whom it was designed for (more and more "mainstreamed", more and more idiot-proof to the detriment of the discerning user), i knew the day was coming.
Am now prepared

While i don't give a damn about games anymore, i know many do, their age notwithstanding. So the more of these juveniles (of all real ages) that Linux can attract, the better. Paradoxically, it's this breed that drives things forward. O tempora o mores, but even so.
It's not a paradox, it's basic economics. As you said, Linux takes more time to tune than Windows for gaming and basic end-user functions. The cost of time spent learning and tuning the system is a barrier to entry. If Windows became uncrackable and Microsoft increased its price some absurd amount, you'd see a lot of "juveniles" investing the time to learn and tune Linux.

I'd say the barrier is quite a bit lower than it used to be with companies like system76 throwing money and dev time towards making things easier. Between their efforts and steam's some things that used to be hard are fairly simple.

so instead of a discussion of view points you go straight ad hominem after trying to muddy the "fact" water . . . .

pro tip:
don't make baseless claims (or at least not bother to support them) all the while touting some sort of (apparently) fictitious creditably.

No. Just no.

Linux takes literally 10 mins to install with the most popular distributions. Arch is overly complicated just for the sake of it (and if you want its easy mode you can use Manjaro, which I recommend). For the people who want just basic web browsing, mail, media and office it works out of the box. No drivers to install with popular and most old as hell hardware. No nagging from MS or Apple with accounts and stuff.

If you wanna play the only thing you have to do is download Steam an access the beta to enable Proton. If you want to play games out of Steam (or even Steam for tweaks) just use Lutris or Gaming on Linux. With AMD the free driver shipped with the distro installer is the same if not better than the proprietary. With Nvidia most distros ask what driver to install.

Linux isn't nearly as time consuming, frustrating or hard as it was just three to five years ago. I consider it more friendly than Windows for newbies and elderly people.

I can see new users having trouble configuring esync and FreeSync. Even though both are just adding a single line using a text editor.

Overclocking is a bit more complex and there are multiple ways to have the script run at startup.

Overclocking is only more complex with AMD. Nvidia still has overclocking built into the Nvidia Control Panel, unlike in windows where they stripped it out many moons ago.
With AMD I use Radeon Profile. I've been meaning to try CoreCtrl, It looks somewhat like Wattman in windows.
