Choosing a powerful Linux distribution for the blind



Well, I'm blind user and a little developer.

And I know so little in Linux, but so many ambitions!

I tried different distributions. And I understand that it's just a tool.

I have my tasks. I'm looking for the best tool (distribution) for my tasks.

The best experience, your own experience. But maybe I'm wrong in my understanding about Linux distributions?

So. What am I looking for?

Distribution, where there is only what is needed for me.

Where I can decide whether I will use Open Source or non-free. And if I use non-free, I can find it easy.

There is an installer or installation script, but I can also do manual install, but not necessarily.

And where there are no many problems with drivers and firmware.

As a result, I would like to get the maximum result of performance from my hardware!

I use Acer Nitra 5 laptop with the following parameters:

Six-core Intel i5-11400H

System board chipset Intel Tiger Point HM570, Intel Tiger Lake-H

DIMM1: Samsung M471A1K43EB1-CWE

DIMM3: Samsung M471A1K43EB1-CWE

Integrated video Intel(R) UHD Graphics

Discrete video NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU

Since I'm blind, I should use Mate.

I liked Debian. But because of problems with non-free software…

I found Arch Linux! And at first glance, everything is perfect!

During Archinstall, I can choose, OpenSource or Non-Free drivers for the video card. I can use what I want, and I will not have unnecessary components in my system.

The main thing is the best use of Arch, manual installation. I couldn't do it yet!

Fedora has unnecessary components, a slow packet manager.

What could you advise me? What am I wrong, or Arch Linux is my best choice?

Thanks in advance!
