I’ve been using Linux as my main driver for many years. I first tried Arch but the installation process and the setup after first boot was just a bit much for me. But, then I heard of Manjaro and used it for a few years. I really liked it, except for one thing: I didn’t like the way they hold back new software, like fresh KDE or Gnome when they came out.
I looked around for something else and came upon EndeavourOS. I like it a lot… not so much the colour. LOL. Anyway, I like the version of Calamares that you use.
By the way, I’ve been using Linux since the first version of Red Hat. I’m not a Linux wiz, but I know what I need to know to use it and when I don’t, I ask. In case anyone is wondering, I’m 75 years old.
Welcome to the forum and the color purple!
I like green.
Hi, welcome aboard!
It’s great to see you’re able to rock it on the razor edge of / Arch technology at 75, keep up the good party - hope you’ll like it here!
“and the color purple” Thank you.
Hi and welcome.
Me too!! It’s my fave.
I like it already. A young woman named “Cat” once told me that Manjaro was good, but that I’d like Arch even more, because it’s a challenge to “tame the beast”, as she put it. I’ve done that, but I like what a distro like EndeavourOS has to offer. Thanks for the welcome.
I tend to agree, she surely knows what she’s talking about!
Manjaro has a set of it’s unique problems…It’s best to be as close to source (Arch) as possible to overcome those
And is pretty much pure Arch + small repo, Calamares installer and couple of nice helpers.
Oh and awesome community of course - that’s the main selling point!
It’s an honor to meet a person of your experience. Assertive and self reliant people are of great importance to influence the younger ones in our times
Indeed, looking forward to read about your use of computing machinery
I agree about Arch. I loved using it but just didn’t feel the need to get so involved in it. It’s not for everybody. I loved Manjaro, but EndeavourOS is even better, in my humble opinionation.
Merci François. I hope I can be a good influence and be of some small help when I can. En passant, je suis un francophone Québécois.
