Question about Linux for a new rig

So I am going to be building a PC. I have always used Windows for everything but have always wanted to try Linux and am very interested in running a Linux OS as my sole OS on the new PC. I have about a week before the components are all here. I understand I won't master Linux in a week but is it sufficient time to learn it enough to use it to boot up a new computer. I'm planning on running Ubuntu alongside windows on an old laptop for the time being to learn a little. Or is this a mistake and I need more time to learn before running it as my only OS? Thanks!

Current high-end smartphone with later possibility for postmarketOS / Plasma Mobile

I want to buy a new high-end Android smartphone with a high probability of being later compatible with mainline kernel and postmarketOS / Plasma mobile.

I heard Sony has one of the better open source strategies, so could their smartphones be open to that? Or are other manufacturers a better choice in this regard?

Who here is currently using a FLOSS non android phone?

Be it Ubports, some crazy BSD config, arch ARM, a pi phone, Post market OS, or KDE Neon.

If you are, I want to know:

  • How is it

  • what do you do on it?

  • is it actually your main phone?

Im curious to see how the mobile side of linux is doing.
