Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello!  I've been an Arch user for a couple of years now, and I decided I wanted to take a look at the user community, and to hopefully learn more and contribute.  In another life I'm a Windows admin, but Linux has been my go to for my home for a while now, in addition to my escape from the licensing madness.  After professionally working with ESXi and Hyper-V I've been learning about KVM and implementing it in my home network (I particularly enjoy the architecture options!).  I'm fairly comfortable as a day to day user, though I've not really done anything at scale.  Hope to get to know you all!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Just want to introduce myself and say hello!

My name is Peter and live in Sweden.

who am I  then, well A nice guy i think i was born in 78 who fell in love with computers and everything that has to do with computers in 1988.
Over the years it has been Linux of course, Mac and across 28+ years with Ms windows (started with Ms Dos).

In recent (last 4 years Ubuntu to Arch way) time it has become more and more Linux until today I run Arch Vanilla.

Then the big Elephant in the room is Why i chose Linux and did not continue with Windows or Mac.

Mac under Steve Jobs was good both Mac Os and the hardware was satisfactory.
But recently, after Steve Jobs' death, Mac OS became a playhouse with a lot colur's and bugs and pointless functions for the sake of functions and not to facilitate users,
and the quality of the Mac's dropped like a stone to the bottom of the sea, while prices skyrocketed.
Conclusion that Apple has lost its soul and the charm that Steve Jobs characterized Apple and Mac during his time, is now gone forever.

Microsoft then o'boy don't get me started.....
Windows was more or less a must-have until the 2000s, because there wasn't really any real alternative for "common people" and for nerd's there was option....but few.....
Started with games like everyone else there by Windows. Windows was basically the only option on PC if you didn't run a console like Nintendo.... O'Boy now the memories come back Super Mario .... hmm think i need to play it now.

More recently, there was certification of Windows and Windows networks and first jobs within it.
Programming quickly followed… Windows was perfectly fine until Windows 7! Everything after Win 7 was nothing but... spying collecting data and locking down Win Os so it's basically evil and unusable.
After getting tired of eternal bugs, virus, worms, trojan and updates that crash systems and bloatware with advertising (Windows Home and Pro) started the process of finding some better alternative to windows. And Mac was no longer a selectable option... Linux come in to my live.

I have certainly already been in contact with Linux in 98-99-01-02, but it was not an option for gaming at that time.
But I kept a watchful eye on Linux and followed on an hobby level what was going on in the Linux community.
Eventually my patience ran out and I started to Hate Microsoft Windows to the point where I started looking seriously for an alternative in 2018/19 due to of eternal bugs, virus, worms, trojan and updates that crash systems and bloatware with advertising.
I stopped playing except for World of Warship (since Beta time, soon 6 years) so Ubuntu was the first step then Mint and Manjaro, Fedora etc until I ended up here on Arch.

So Arch is wonderful in that it doesn't install a lot of crap and unnecessary parts that I don't need, but I have vanilla from Arch,
and Couldn't be more pleased and flattered I found Arch. It took time before I gave in to Arch and finally I took the plunge and now I'm stuck after I learned how to search for errors and solve these errors in Arch

and the felling of not having the Windows eternal bugs, virus, worms, trojan and updates that crash systems and bloatware with advertising to worry about, Arch is  actually both easy and fun with Aur and Archwiki.

Today's use of my Arch is photo (darktable and Gimp) has gone from adobe lightroom and Photoshop, and Video with KdenLive and Davinci Resolve. Of course, all the usual boring things like the office and Web surfing are also included.

I think there is lot more to say, but i think i stop here and my rumbling for now.
If any Question please feel free to ask.

One Question Why must Arch be so Sweet ans asome

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi guys, I have been oscillating between Arch and Ubuntu over the years, going back mostly because of my OCD about font rendering, I still can't get it the way Ubuntu does after all this time haha.

Do you think Rust will gain adoption in tools like yay and arch system?

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello I am an4rki_ I have been using GNU/Linux mostly Ubuntu for the last couple years and I switched to Arch a few weeks ago. The whole "building your own system" experience that one gets when it comes to Arch is just awesome. You also get to customise your system as you want, which made me to switch to this awesome distro. Excited to learn new stuff from this great community!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everyone, new Arch user here.
After a couple of years trying out Ubuntu and Fedora, this is so far the best Linux experience I`ve had. I hope to continue learning alongside this nice community!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everyone,
well,
friend made me like Linux and free software long time ago. I'm studying IT.
Same friend told me about Arch "well, installation is pretty hard, but they got great wiki and you will learn how it works underneath".
I did.
And it wasn't easy, I'm not seasoned programmer (yet?).

I still have Windows on my Desktop, and it actually was more than half challenges during installation (still not everything working with GRUB, hopefully I will not need your help for this one).

What's more... I like what I'm seeing so far, most of tweaks I'm trying to do are working pretty well. Have less problems than I remember from my Ubuntu times a while ago - either Arch is better or I understand more (or... just... everything is better).
I heard that community is great, I may test it in day or two, still can't find solution for (hopefully) basic problem.
Hmm, I'm from Poland so sorry for my English?

I guess that's all. See you later, for sure I'm gonna ask few questions... Hopefully in few years answer few?

I'm new to Arch but have been an avid Debian user for a while. I'm liking the transition so far! Pacman seems worlds better than apt was smile

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Greetings! I'm a complete newcomer to ArchLinux, although I'm already somewhat familiar with Linux via Ubuntu and Fedora.  I decided to try ArchLinux as a smaller footprint alternative to other modern operating systems, and also because it seemed like it would leave the most space on my otherwise obsolete 32Gb netbook (which I have found is somewhat useful for remote work.)  I was also drawn to ArchLinux through my interest in low power/sustainable computing, as ArchLinux appears to be very customizable and therefore amenable to exploring minimal (but nonetheless functional, and friendly) user interfaces.  Beyond sustainability and the humanity-nature relationship, my interest in technology (and computing and the internetz) includes gaming, amateur meteorology, digital eco-phenology, education, language representation and learning, and the potential of peer to peer design. Feel free to PM me if you'd like.

Hello and welcome!

You will find that Arch Linux is very customizable.

Be sure to check out the AUR when exploring available apps.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

I was afraid of installation of Arch smile there is magic words: Arch installation is hard:)

During this installation i guess that if you want learn Linux you have to have Arch.

Very customizable OS.

I had journey on Fedora Debian EOS and Manjaro

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Greetings and regards community.

I came from Manjaro, EOS and Mint. It is time to take advantages on Arch and my main OS will be ArchLinux.

I fell deep in Archwiki so many materials for beginners.

Is anything for to take care?

Hello Everyone
I am CodeCraft and a friend and I came up with the idea of making a Linux-based distro
so here I am using arch as the base

I hope everything goes well and I can produce a distro with Calamares and other cool stuff
