This is a quick hello from a new Endeavour user in the UK.
I’m a 61 year old long-time computer user with hippy tendencies, living on the South Coast and not into distro-hopping. Tbh I don’t see the point, after all it’s just an OS and is basically there to help us get work done, not offer entertainment itself. I use the PC for playing music, light gaming, browsing, e-mail, spreadsheets and watching TV so want a distro to be supportive, reliable and out of the way.
I have to say that I am very impressed with this distro. I have previously been a very committed Manjaro user, until an update totally screwed up my system with a kernel update (suddenly dropping the one that I had installed). This was the last straw for me and I wasn’t reinstalling again. I took the plunge and installed Arch the ‘proper’ way. All went well and I was happy for 2 years, no update issues whatsoever. But I installed a few programs that I wasn’t happy with and needed to make a fresh install. Maybe it was easier to go back to Manjaro. So I did, but 3 months later I’ve had enough again, it just isn’t confidence inspiring unfortunately and I want Arch back.
I tried Endeavour to save the full task of configuring Arch and I have to say that it is excellent. The installer is a bit buggy (Antergos was worse) but I can get around that and all is smooth so far after 3 weeks.
Thanks for reading a long intro - best wishes to all and thanks to the Endeavour team for their work which is very much appreciated. I expect to be using this for the foreseeable on all 3 PCs.
