Gentoo is way beyond even me. Arch is a PITA like nothing else, so if (and that's a big if) I use Linux on it, it will likely be Xubuntu or some other Ubuntu variant.Will it run Arch or Gentoo?
If you're starting a CS program at University of Kentucky in the fall I'd go with an Ubuntu variant. The intro level courses I looked at are in Python and C++.Gentoo is way beyond even me.

No, despite my misgivings with Windows 10, I will be using it on this machine, with Anti-Beacon and Classic Shell of course.
For me, Political Science 6A, 6B, 6C (quarter system) taught by: A=Dean of Undergraduate Education, B=Dean of Political Science, C=Dean of Social Science; was more difficult than any lower-division 10-99, or upper-division 100-199 class. So watch out for the "basic" courses, especially if taught by a dean.I thought the first semester was spent doing core classes like English and some form of math?
I started with enough college credit to skip my entire freshman year, which wound up being the worst thing ever because I was placed in a calc class I didn't belong in (I should've retaken Calc I but I was too proud of my AP credit) and in O Chem, which is just not a good starting place since everyone else got the hand-holding of 100-level lab science courses that I missed out on.You'll probably have a year calculus and maybe 1-2 English classes and/or upper-division writing. Etc. Don't procrastinate. Get your work done early to ease stress level.
