So far, my only game is Dungeon Crawl (Stone Soup) and my concession to modernity is using the tiled version. There seems to be a version for everything.

Somewhere down the line I'll probably get into VR goggle (X-Ray Specs are passe)[^] At which time, I'll probably need to get more computing power than any of my current systems have.

Not making it a choice, but Ubuntu had a media version - I might look into that if it's to become a media box.

Here's a thought, obviously wishful thinking:   if this were Linux based and used as one of the household media boxes, it's a way to get Mrs. Wife more accustomed to not-Windows and not-Android (we don't do Apple). The interface is functionally the same - getting rid of any hesitancy and fear.


As for the fooling around to do things consideration - isn't that what we do, here? Thanks for additional input into the pool of "OK, now what?" considerations.
