Windows / Linux Ubuntu Distribution / Linux Pop! OS Distribution (operating systems)

I have a good grasp of internal structures within Windows and Linux. Pop! OS being an Ubuntu based gaming distribution of Linux. I understand basics of command line, speciality programs like flatpack, package installers, synaptic and dependencies, advanced wine use (wine staging, tricks, etc), etc. I have been using Linux on and off since about 2013. I have tried a range of distributions but have mostly used Ubuntu throughout my time. Though I understand the basic differences between the major distributions and the benefits of others like Kali. I prefer Linux over Windows, though learnt a heavy understanding of the ins-and-outs of Windows with my first real memories being from XP. I have only ever briefly used Mac on university computers or friends PCs. I have never used this system for personal use. I understand BIOS and UEFI.
