In Topic: Best linux distros for gaming

I'd recommend just going Ubuntu or one of the OS's based on it that Janichsan mentioned. Ubuntu is the most popular consumer linux OS and as such has a wealth of info on forums, etc. for any troubleshooting you might need to do.

Hi mom!

I am extremely hyped for this. Halo 1 on the PowerMac G5 was all I played back in the day. CTF on Blood Gulch on the 1EV server. Literally played every day for a few hours. I am also looking forward to being able to play coop with my dad and brothers. We all played coop Halo back in the day and it'll be nice to be able to do that again.

Yeah, I considered that, but I just find it too stupid having to resort to such meassures just to get storage space. And I dread having to use Symlinks all over the place to be able to have my apps on the system!

There is no need for symlinks. You are booting directly off of the external SSD and it would be your primary drive. The only annoyance is that you have to have an external drive plugged in.

The internal 5400rpm HDD would just show up as a 2nd drive and I would probably just use it for time machine backups or media storage.

I know it isn't a great solution, but you can just plug in an external USB 3.0/TB3  SSD and boot off of that. Adds clutter but massively cuts down on the drive upgrade cost.

Sounds like your windows install got corrupted somehow. You could try repairing it with a windows bootable USB, but I would be careful when doing a startup repair that you don't ruin your macOS startup disk as well.
