It took many years since I dared to try any arch based distros. I had done some distro hopping every now and then since 2008 when I first started using Linux. About 6 months ago I finally took a big step and installed Manjaro. I was very surprised how easy it was to install and use. Of course there was some learning curve, but mostly it was very smooth experience. I was little bit surprised when I read about all those forum posts about problems people seemed to have with their installs. I never had any problems except few reinstalls which were caused because of my own stupid experiments. Some time ago I read about Endeavour OS and it immediately got my interest. I have two laptops, the other one Manjaro KDE installed and the other one Manjaro XFCE. The latter one is older machine and it’s permanently connected to my tv, because I like to watch movies and sports with it. It works just fine, but I was thinking maybe there was some even lighter alternative available somewhere. So I couraged myself to try Endeavour, because I thought how hard could it be?..
I was right. The install went smoothly and I even managed to add pamac which I like even if I’m quite comfortable with pacman.
So here I am. I have never had any need to ask help from forums, because I’m quite good at searching information from different sources (I’m a librarian and it’s my job to search, search, search… )
But anyway I thought I will say hello. This feels very friendly community and I might step in to this forum every now and then. You never know when I manage to nuke my system completely because I didn’t read the wiki thoroughly…
Welcome and enjoy your journey here!
Welcome @mardi then enjoy your time with EndeavourOS
We might need some library assistance organizing the forum with all the new members.
Well, I have heard people often wondering : “why can’t you organize your books by size or by colour?”. Why indeed…
Welcome to the forum and the community There is a lot of good info here and on the wiki to search, so have at it, but don’t be afraid to ask questions either
If you feel experimenting again, timeshift could be your friend… if you use it before experimenting.
Welcome @mardi, have fun.
Welcome! …so much confetti.
