Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

I fixed the installation (not really), I restarted the installation, same "error", but it was just that I had to configure the WiFi connection again, and that was it, I now enjoy my new Arch Linux user life and my old PC enjoys a lightweight distro.


I messed my Arch Linux installation, then fixed it smile

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello Everyone, I'm a new arch user, btw tongue

I first started with linux back in 2005-6 ripping live CDs of different distros and trying them out. Have been fascinated with computers and linux ever since I was a kid. Just got around to installing arch on a virtual machine, testing the waters before installing it on a real box.

Will be switching my main daily driver laptop to arch soon. Looking forward to being part of the community.

Hello Everyone! I'm a new linux and arch user! All my life I used windows or macOS and Linux feels like a breath of fresh air, compared to windows. Trying to learn some things and I'm happy to join to this community!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi Everyone! I got into Linux generally back in ~'20-'21 when like everyone else I decided to build a pc. It was a big step being not-tech-savvy and had to learn a lot. For the os, I was gonna just go with Windows, but since I had come so far learning about computer hardware, I decided I'd make the jump into Linux.

I started with Ubuntu of course, learning and struggling along the way. I soon heard about the other distros and knew I'd have to graduate up at some point. Arch seemed the most natural. I was able to pick up installing Arch quickly but never quite got down Pacman and System Maintenance and never got to a point of being able to daily drive, my installs just becoming stale and falling apart. But this year I was taking some programming classes. It inspired me to finally RTFM when they ended and everything started to click. (Learn my lesson, kids.)

I set up my current install last week and everything's been going almost as well as can be hoped. Some hiccups but so much better than previous unsuccessful ones.  Just made a forum account and thought I'd say hi!

Hallo

I started using Arch Linux about a couple weeks ago or so :3

It's been pretty fun so far, Linux is so cool.

Over the course of the past few months this Linux journey has been so fun, it's fun using my COMPUTER again :D

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

I sunk the hatchet in windows 11, its buried deep in the back yard...

Hello big_smile

I had a few attempts at getting a successful install, the last one I used grub and for some reason the propriety nvidia drivers actually worked so here I am. Feels good.

I'd like to thank all the maintainers and people who make things like Arch linux a reality. I feel much less bloated.

Yoyoyo cool

Finally installed arch after the recent good news about the nvidia beta drivers and the bad news about recall. Been great so far smile

Coming from managing debian servers it's a bit different but still linux afterall.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

The success of debian: Not all modern thingies and "you-must-have" nonsence are immediatly there, those  who must have them are sent to *buntu and tested there, also those who allways follow everybody. So, well then and here at archie the curious ideas also are sorted out. Perfect!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everybody!

I'm very new, I just switched to ArchLinux on my laptop, as I just couldn't take the pain of MacOS anymore. Once my install is finished I'll hopefully try and start learning Rust!

I'm looking forward to a bloatless install smile

Hello guys,
After a few weeks of pain, going from Windows to Arch I have finally made the transition.
Happy to finally be freed from mainstream blood sucking corporations.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello, I have been on `nix systems since 1998 when I installed Debian from a CD that came with Boot Magazine (currently Wired). I was on a dial up connection and downloading a distro was painful to say the least as a base system could take all day or more (literally). Ever since my first Gnu/Linux experience I could never take MS Windows (DOS) seriously again. Though modern incarnations (Windows) are usable they just do not meet my needs. I have, since then, used many distros though Fedora has always been a favorite, despite how many times an update has crashed my system wink , I like the way Fedora tries to stay bleeding edge. For a while now I have been considering checking out Arch Gnu/Linux. I love the way you build up the system from a bare minimal install so you only get what you want not what someone else decided for you.

I installed Arch to a SATA NVMe drive that I have installed in a usb enclosure. I wanted to test on bare metal not a VM. VM tests are never quite fair anyway as you inherit all the flaws of the host system. So far the experience has been great. I am still using Fedora 40 though I may migrate completely to Arch soon. Though this post was made booted on Arch smile. I love how complete the installation Guide wiki is.

Great job maintaining the Distro!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Good afternoon,
I am also new to arch, as I know that the support for windows 10 is running out in 2025 and windows 11 is a real pain.... I need to explore new horizons wink. And I am willing to change my laptops and desktops to linux.
I am testing several linux distributions out for about 1 year. I want to get a feeling for the different flavors.
For about 6 Months I am testing out (I am not currently working on the systems, only playing around and trying to set everything up and understanding how it works) debian as a base and trying out different desktops. I finally landed on the CB++ distro, which is in my opinion the best suited for me. I like minimalistic desktops and hate desktop icons wink. The only thing that I don't like on debian is, that it is not a rolling release. I don't know why, but in my head it is wrong not to use a rolling release, even if it may brake things when updating (which I have read many times in the forums wink ). My knowledge is limited in linux, but I am learning and understanding fast.
I am now running a base arch installation with the bare minimum of openbox. All I can say is... let the adventure begin wink
