Just wanted to say thanks to the EndeavourOS team for your i3 implementation. I have been using Linux off and on since the days when SuSE was just plain SuSE, when Novell developed it. I came back to using it exclusively over a year ago, and my how things have changed since my last distro I used - Crunchbang - which I used to use until about six years or so ago. When I came back to Linux, I found it had ceased it’s development, and I looked at the Distrowatch rankings (believe me, they matter to someone wanting to know what distro is hot at the moment), and have hopped through many. I have been through all the DE’s and found that Openbox is still what I prefer opposed to say Plasma, I still prefer minimalism than every feature you can shoehorn in a build, and that there is nothing wrong using an Arch based distro, no matter what Reddit users say lol.
I have tried your distro before, liked it, but was still trying out others. Then In saw a vid on YouTube that showed your i3. I installed it with just your i3 at install (well, along with LXQT in case), and it’s perfect. I have installed i3-gaps on other distro’s, didn’t like having to find dotfiles as I am still new to it, and your distro is clean and fast. I have several partitions of Linux installs on three different machines (because I am crazy), all of which are either Arch or Debian based. It will get worse when I get into Void, NixOS, and Gentoo lol. I just want to say thanks again from a budding enthusiast. Who strangely never joins Linux forums, ever since I got banned from Ubuntu’s back 1997 or so, and trust me, they weren’t as nice as Ubuntu claimed to be.
