Hello from converted 10+yr Mint user

Have been a mint user for over 10 years and never thought I would have switched my main os for anything else. Tested arch multiple times (and arch based distros) but all them required hours of tweaking and up keep that I wasn’t interested in for my daily system. Last thing I need is to wake up and be forced to fix some random error/mistake for hours at a time so I kept searching.
Then by chance I came across EndevourOS while browsing the vr heatsets on the gamingonlinux website and began testing everything on a vb image. Perfection.

Nothing against mint, i still love it, but I can recognize a superior os and updated package base when I see it.

My daily reaction when booting up my endeavourOS powered mate edition:

Same here, been using Mint since before Cinnamon was developed. Nothing against Mint and I still recommend it for those new to Linux but EndeavourOS impressed me enough to take over as my daily driver OS. That being said, I do run EndeavourOS with the Cinnamon desktop :wink:

Still using Mint as a media server. But… EnOS is MY daily driver. Been using it for over 2 months now.
Had the same reaction as you did when I first booted it up! :star_struck:

Welcome to the :enos: forums.

It’s best you keep mint as the server because it’s not a rolling release. But if you’re comfortable enough you can use enos as a server as well.

Welcome here! :grin: Also moved from Debian based distros to rolling release, first Manjaro then eos. Eos has the simplicity and elegance I need, it works, no more weird bloated background stuff going on. If it breaks it’s just me, then I fix and learn and repeat.

sudo pacman -Syu, eat-sleep-repeat

I’m still old school for me Pipewire has some long way to go before it makes into my install/s.

I though you were doing the 3 month challenge?

Hmm, I wrote a 3 month review of EndeavourOS, but I wouldn’t commit to any 3 month challenge. That’s just too long. If anything, I’d consider a 30 day challenge for somethings. But at the moment I’ve only got a single laptop that I use, nothing else to experiment and test. If I did have a spare piece of hardware, I’d prob throw Budgie or KDE or Worm on it.

Welcome @Tenerlet from one former/current Mint user to another!

Was a fan of gnome until ubuntu decided to switch to unity. Obviously not gnomes fault but they were also making a ton of other forced changes towards a mobile type look while abandoning the xp style start menu. Then it was a mad rush to find another deb based classic gnome style distro and luckily I found Mint Mate.
I may have to take another look at gnome just to see what they’ve been up to.

Hi and welcome :smiley:
