Alright… the idea is not to get kicked from this place. I do like it a lot.
My question is rather simple. Why would you install EndeavourOS?
That’s it. Why?
So for me, when I got here, I found this to be the perfect solution for my constant re-installations of Arch. It meant going through a menu and at the end you had an Archish install.
To me this was great. Point and click solution.
Then I found Anarchy installer. This was even more close to Arch! Wow! Even better…
I have used it several re-installs, but it was Endeavour like, clicking through menus.
This should be simpler…
At this point I realized I did the same thing, every time I installed Arch. I ran through the same commands every time. So I came to realize I didn’t really needed a distro. I just needed to use the Arch install IOS and make it my own.
So this is what I set out to do. I made my own “Install Script”, which simply installs an Arch system with nothing else, according to my specifications.
After booting into this, I realized, this is shit. It IS a working Arch system, but it wasn’t mine.
So I set out to set up a “Jorisify scrip”, or a script that would set up everything within this working perfectly usable Arch install. Which I wrote, and re-wrote and still am re-writing…
Anywho, my point is, “sub”-distros are pointless. One could set up one’s system as one likes. This creates the perfect system for the person who knows what he/she is doing.
I will admit, this will never draw a community like EndeavourOS did. I am happy to be part of it. I do still feel like being critical of what’s going on is important, so here it is.
I love you all, best to you, please let me know what you think. I (seriously) want to know!
