What’s up everybody!?
I just want to say I’m blown away by this OS and community.
I’m next to a NPC when it comes to Linux. Literally have no knowledge or experience about it aside from seeing the little Penguin every now and then when I used to go download something.
I ended up trying out Endeavour after a frustrating evening of 6+ hours trying to get Ubuntu to install. Ironic, right? (EDIT: Big thanks to @TechHut)
Definitely a good choice. I’m legit excited to dig into discovery, the Arch Linux Wiki and all the other resources that the community has cultivated over the years. Over the course of the last week, it’s crazy that I’ve grown to enjoy and look forward to reading through the various write-ups and instructions to carry out different tasks as I try to personalize the system for me.
Particularly, I want to thank Endeavour OS for its “terminal-centric” approach. I’m learning to not be afraid of the terminal (sounds crazy when you say it out loud). And to instead learn to understand it and what’s going on in the background. I know for-sure had I been successful with the former distro. then the experience would likely be way different.
Now - I don’t intend on becoming a developer, programmer, or anything of the sort. I’m actually a Business Major in University. I just wanted to get away from Windows. You could say I’m about half-way out the door.
I’ve got the OS installed on my younger-sister’s old laptop. I would’ve put it on my own to daily and I would probably have much better performance. Alas, I only had a little bit of SSD space, and my university heavily depends on the Microsoft Office Suite.
Not able to trash Windows just yet!
I’m slowly starting to move towards actually making some productivity out of the system. For now, it’s mostly just for generic use. I’m hopeful that I can use this learning curve to start to grow some new skills and explore different applications and such.
I think that there’s really endless opportunity out there of what’s really possible. I’m seriously excited about this Endeavour!
