Hello EndeavourOS folks! Happy New Year!
I wanted to say hello and thank you for the overall tone of this forum and for the excellent Linux distro. I’ve been test driving it for about one month, and I am very pleased. So many things done well, and so many things left alone for me to do as I please. Super grateful. You took the pain out of Arch but left me in charge of my own Linux setup.
I’ve tried a dozen different distros in the past 6 months, and used Ubuntu on servers for years, so I’m familiar with Linux. And many distros are starting to act like a nanny, literally replacing things I’ve setup with their latest updates. UGH!! I won’t name names (Garuda), but I want to do my own thing YET also have the superior knowledge of others helping me out. Again, much appreciation and gratitude!
I will have questions I’m sure as I move all my files from MacOS (talk about being a nanny!!) into my Linux box. Thank you again, and I hope to someday be able to contribute to EndeavourOS in some meaningful. I can’t say enough good about the vibe and attitude of everyone here!
P.S. “the land that time forgot” in my case is the Midwest of the USA. It is like being in the 1950’s. I am trying my damnedest to get the hell out of here!! Cheers!
P.P.S. I’ve been playing with WM’s, so I’m starting Eos with i3. The install is so freaking clean and simple compared to others. No bloat.
Welcome, I like your enthusiasm!
Welcome Tom, and all the best with your getting out of the Midwest endeavour
welcome to Endeavouros forum.
And i try to find a Country where i could live like in the 80/90’s. Without the whole Socialmedia bullshi*. Best would be without Internet, or only paid per minute. But this is only a dream, wich never comes true again.
Welcome to Endeavour from the West-West.
They say ignorance is bliss. No, no it isn’t. I want to be around people who at least occasionally think. Thanks! to everyone. Cheers!
Welcome, welcome! I used to use Ubuntu and I also used to live in the Midwest. Can’t say I miss either!
welcome and enjoy your stay here
Welcome @13zebras !
And maybe, just maybe, it’s not that bad to live in “the land that time forgot” 'cause it’s crazy times we’re living in right now
It’s been my experience that a different place = different problems. No place is perfect.
Sometimes it is best to deal with the devil you know, rather than a new devil you know nothing about.
Conversely, sometimes leaving makes you realize how great you had it before and enjoy it even more when you return.
That being said, I moved away from the part of the country where I was born and raised 20 years ago and would never move back.
I’m trying to get back to the 1950’s. Best era yet!
Or in my case, confirming how terrible it was and lucky to have gotten out.
I was born in 1950, so I only remember the second half of the 1950’s.
I still do remember the assassination of JFK.
I couldn’t figure out why the teacher was crying.
