    Probably they will do what most companies do in regards to Linux support, only a fixed set of LTS versions and/or enterprise distros

    Yeah, sigh. Put Slackware stable back on one of my drives. Once 6.5 hits current I'm still going to blacklist currents kernel updates.

    Hopefully the alternatives pan out for a lot of us gamers out there if that ends up the case.

    AMD and intel have their own walled gardens as well. I don't think there is a satisfactory solution no matter what you go for.

    I see nothing but not so wonderful options out there.

    It's a good time to put slackware stable back on one of my drives and just say feck it for the next half decade. It's going to be awhile before current reaches 6.6 but stable is still on 5.15. Current just hit 6.1.50 yesterday.
