Hello. I am thinking about switching to Endeavour from Manjaro for two main reasons (1) I want to try a distro even closer to Arch than Manjaro to see how well I can keep up with it and the issues that will arise having a more cutting edge distro (2) I want support for my 4k HP zbook with an nvidia graphics card.
I have hacked my way through Manjaro KDE to mostly get the 4 k to work properly in 95% of cases but I do not even remember how I got there. I have installed Endeavour on virtualbox and tried it out and like it but graphically is it bad there but in my experience everything related to screen resolution is bad hack on virtualbox. I am pleased that the functionality of Endeavour is there though.
So my question relates to how likely am I to get Endeavour to provide 4k support off the start and continually on my hp zbook? I know that nobody will know for certain but I would like to hear anyone’s experiences or speculations.
thanks very much
