I totally understand your need to customize your setup. Mac devices are awesome, have great build quality but some even small adjustments are not possible. If you are a tinkerer, you'll feel the pain after some time. Sure there are problems with Linux.

Even in 2021 the desktops are not as polished as Windows 10 or MacOS. Font rendering is different, might take some time to configure and get used to. Also multiscreen support, dynamic icon window sizing is still not there (technically with Wayland, but I haven't seen it implemented and working yet). But still some things are much easier, especially if you're a developerπŸ‘.
