    I want to get away from Windows 10.

    Would you recommend Antergos, Pop or Solus?

    I have a Vega 64 so an AMD leaning flavour would be best.

    Pop and Manjaro are good for this. Linux tech tips has a video on it also.

    Sticking with an Ubuntu-based distro would be best for you so that's a good choice

    Antergos/Manjaro are good, especially for AMD being rolling distros.

    Personally use Atergos
