Through the years I went from Ubuntu (6.06), to Xubuntu (for more than 10 years if I remember correctly; really nice distro, and nice people), then some hopping from BunsenLabs to PeppermintOS, to KDE and some more OS’s, like Kubunu, MX-Linux, Linux Lite, to - quite recently - Manjaro-KDE, which I really like. Still do. And I thought I had found my Linux-home.
Then, just for fun, I installed EndeavourOS-KDE… and was blown away.
It’s like Manjaro but faster.
So far - two weeks in - I’m still impressed.
I’ve now switched to EndeavourOS as my daily driver.
Thanks for creating EndeavourOS. It’s amazing.
Hello! from another user
I see you have experience and surely going to have a daily enjoyment in a rolling release.
Looking forward to read about your experimentation with different free programs and interaction with the superb and knowledgeable volunteers who help us fix things when a hick-up comes up.
P.S. there is also … sometimes … a clown that comes in and makes us laugh
Hello and welcome @SemLraug Enjoy the purple ride
Welcome to the dark side @SemLraug
Thank you all. I hope to be able to help others once I have some experience with EndeavourOS.
Welcome @SemLraug to -Forum. Enjoy the purple ride
Hey welcome! Also an ex-Manjaro user - a lot of us came from that direction for er… various reasons. Running EOS on a 2015 i7-6700k 4Ghz, 32GB DDR4 and an AMD 6700XT 12GB with a 1TB Samsung SSD, I have to say this box absolutely flies.
KDE is one of those desktop environments that is great even if you just leave it on default settings, but the ability to tweak and fine tune? That’s the sweet spot! Enjoy!
Hello… Welcome… I’m new here too, still without EOS installed, just watching to posts here, and planned to install it on thursday
welcome to the purple kids club
Indeed, being able to tweak things even if the default is very nice as it is, is one of the perks of KDE/Plasma.
Also: Linux lets me extend the usability of “older” PC’s and laptops.
My wife is using a 10 year old 32 bit laptop, running MX-Linux, and is happy with it. It’s fast and stable.
I am using a 4 year old Acer Aspire A315-53, Intel Core i5-8250U running EOS or Manjaro-KDE.
Frankly, I’m in aw off all the people who contribute to FOSS, the Linux-projects, the distributions that are out there and all the applications that are made. So many people in so many different places of the world from so many different backgrounds all working together to create something that so many people like me can use. I find that awesome.
