Depends of the games you play. I tend to play single player games, so I keep Linux on my laptop and could probably do just fine with just Linux. My son enjoys Fortnite, so WIndows 10 is on the desktop for that. When he goes to college the desktop will probably be switched to Linux.

I use Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 specifically) for most of my games now. Most games work out of the box with Steams Proton now, quite a few popular ones are native, and lutris with wine + dxvk is super simple to set up.

The only games I keep on a Windows 10 partition are Ubisoft games, BO4 and Destiny 2, and the odd ones that just don't work. If a game doesn't work right off the bat there are usually small tweaks that make the game run flawlessly with any support available from the great Linux community.

Honestly it's been a 9/10 experience, if you are willing to do a tad bit of research and such.

If you play for fun, then da vinci slots free games https://onlineslotsx.com/free-slots/davinci-diamonds/ is good. I play there quite a bit. Let me know if you want a game.
