I’m not new to Linux as I started early 2000s with Mandrake distro, then I’ve been switching to different *buntu flavors to finally land with Manjaro somewhere like 2017 I guess. For me, Manjaro was stable as rock and I have never experienced issues (except for one-time thing but purely related to Nvidia drivers). Now I’d like to verify on my own all these legends about immediate updates destroying Arch. I have chosen EndeavourOS because even I have some Linux experience I’m not as experienced to install all that stuff in text mode
One thing that I noticed right away and I like much is EnOS has lowered significantly my wifi ping and latency in FPS games, now I know it’s just a matter of configuration but I’m getting that out of the box here
Anyway, I’m very curious on this experiment results.
I’ve been distrohopping for the last 26 years and I’ve ended up here. Endeavour is an excellent OS. I recently loaded up the latest Fedora spin and may give Ubuntu Cinnamon a spin. I do this mostly to see how everyone else is progressing. It gives me sometimes a lot of down time installing different OS distros and then reinstalling what I felt comfortable with. I’m no expert by any means. . .it’s a continual learning progression sometimes by repetition I guess. Welcome to the forum and happy computing.
Welcome! I am also a Manjaro expat. I loved Manjaro (still use it for some of my machines), and I have also been very happy with Endeavour’s stability and performance.
I think you’ll find that the minimal and terminal-centric nature of Endeavour lends it a very high degree of compatibility with Arch tutorials / wikis, so if you’re anything like me, you’ll be learning a lot in no time.
Yeah, I understand all that, but even though it causes some issues, I was curious how much truth is in all those complaints about arch updates destroying OS that you can find over the internet and so on; I’m with EnOS for 2 weeks now and no issues at all; I’ve learned dracut, timeshift + btrfs; now I will try to apprach systemd-boot; but I need to dig deeper a bit and find out the best pattern for encrypting dual boot machine. Nice system, I like it much but I feel it’s rather not for beginners, good choice for ones having some linux background and interested in learning on how that thing works.
