To install activate Linux package for Arch based distros (AUR) :
# Paru ... Or use whatever your Aur helper is! yay activate-linux-git
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:edd/misc sudo apt update sudo apt install activate-linux
eselect repository enable vaacus emerge --sync vaacus emerge -av activate-linux
dnf config-manager --add-repo https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:tschmitz:activate-linux/Fedora_Rawhide/home:tschmitz:activate-linux.repo dnf install activate-linux

Maybe it’s time for you too to give that penguin 🐧 a try !
It doesn’t really matter what you pick. It’s just whatever works best for you. Just pick a random distro, and if you don’t like it try another. There’s no penalty to how many times you switch.
