Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello. My name is Jay, and I am currently living in Seoul, South Korea with my family. I graduated college this year (majoring in Computer Science), and just applied to study graphic design in New York City. Now I make animation for living. I have been using Linux for more than a year (used Ubuntu, Linux Mint, MX Linux, and Manjaro). I wanted a distro that can bring me the latest stable kernel right after testings by developers. I have always thought about installing Arch Linux, and it became this year's goal for me. After a long hassle, I finally installed it in a small laptop and works very smoothly. I feel good about myself for being part of the Arch community.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everyone,

I have found arch after using ubuntu for 1 year and breaking it 3 times in the process because nobody taught me the basics or even what is sudo and what it does and Windows user ignorance led me to break stuff since I didn't know how powerful a command can be hmm.

I'm a bioinformatics student and I have started to think that this is the best distro to use for my work and personal life. Even if it looks hard to install, if you are able to read wiki page, it is freaking easy actually. The most beautiful thing about the process is, you learn so many stuff about linux starting from the installation. I believe knowledge should be earned, not presented with a single click.

I'm using arch for like a month and I'm already recommending everyone that would like to try linux.

Yes, "I use arch btw".

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everyone,

installed Arch Nov. 1st and love it yikes. System is pretty snappy and uses ressources sparingly as expected.

After using Windoze for many years I shifted to Linux 1 1/2 years ago and since then never looked back. I needed some time to understand the Linux basics before taking courage to install Arch. Finally, after improving my wifi network skills I succeeded. The Arch wiki is superior and it was rich in helpful hints for me, one of the reasons I decided for Arch. I also like the rolling release approach, definitely best way for my needs.

I'm glad to be part of the game now and like to express my thanks to all the people contributing to this great distro.

See you!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi!
I'm Linux user for 18ish  years and Arch user for at least 10 years.
Finally I want to give back something after Antergos shut down which I used most of the time.

I started by creating a post about a current WWAN Thinkpad driver at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xmm7360-pci and made my first mess.

Correct me and help me get stuff going and we will have a good time smile

Prost!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everybody!

I've been using Linux for about a year now. I originally decided to install Linux, since I had very low-end it had a Celeron and 4gb of ram. At that time I had only recently heard about Linux, I knew it as this cool open-source os where you could customize everything, and choose between a huge variety of different distros. On this laptop using Windows 10 was an absolutely insufferable experience, the CPU was always pegged at 100% even at idle and it was painfully slow. I heard Linux it ran well on low-end machines, I decided to install Mint 19.3 on it which the laptop ran a lot better and I was very impressed.

Shortly after, I built my own PC for gaming and went ahead to install Manjaro KDE and I had also set up a dual boot with Windows 10 for games that didn't work on Linux. I eventually wanted to switch Arch Linux, because I could have a lightweight and minimal system that I could configure myself. I went ahead and learned how to install Arch from YouTube tutorials. It took me nearly 6 hours to install it, but somehow I managed to install it successfully and I couldn't even believe I did it. But I didn't really know what I was doing and when I was trying to update my kernel, I ran out of space on my EFI partition, and somehow deleted my initramfs and got a bunch of errors. After that I could no longer boot into my arch install, I spent nearly a week going through forums and the wiki trying to fix this issue. The only solution was to reinstall Arch, I was too lazy to bother installing Arch again so I switched to Ubuntu since everything would be easy. I never really liked Ubuntu because of how bloated it was, or the package manager I went ahead and switched. I then started distrohopping and ended up on a new distro every week, I got really sick of this cycle and wanted to settle down and just wanted to play my games. I had already tried many different distros and I came back to Arch, it was pretty much the only distro that had everything I needed. I been using Arch for a few months now, and I ran into bunch of issues, but learned read the documentation and troubleshoot things myself instead of expect everyone else to do it for me.

Currently, I'm enjoying Arch Linux a lot big_smile, it's great for gaming and everything else, while still being lightweight and not coming with all the unnecessary features. I can actually use my computer without it phoning home all of my usage data to the NSA servers, or spoon-feeding me some useless features I do not care for. Arch Linux forces you to actually learn how Linux works and lets the user control the os, rather than something like Windows where the os controls you. I'm really glad to see a community and developers that are devoted to making Linux so great!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Greetings!

This topic is the Arch Linux History! I was reading early posts, 2007, fascinating.
The feelings when we make our own operating system is awesome. I mean, we need the Arch tools to make it happens but it is fantastic.
I installed and uninstalled so many times till I find the minimal best operating system suitable to me. I was Ubuntu user for so long, I started with Kurumin.
I was looking for a minimal OS,  I know is possible to do with all Linux distro, uninstall the useless features but I wanted a fresh installed OS brand new with just apps that I want, I'm 100% cloud, online user, so browser and terminal is everything. So I did researches and I found Arch Linux on a Brazilian Linux Channel "Diolinux" on Youtube. So I thought "Why not" then here I am, I loved it!
I like all OS, but Linux community, developers, users, all they makes Linux great and it is a honor for me be part of this history. Thank you very so much Linus, Arch and all!

My best regards.

Hello!
I like Arch Linux because it is an operating system for intelligent people and the forum is too.
I was just watching for a long time but now I decided to open an account.

Arch on!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello all. Checking in to introduce myself.
I've been using Arch since this year's March. With many obstacles and initial frustrations installing them on a new laptop,
I am finally here now using Arch everyday on my laptop and since last month, on my desktop without trouble.

I've tried using Ubuntu some years ago but that didn't last long as I was keep facing issues and with my mindset of expecting to find the most basic functions to work properly, I went back to using Windows.

Early this year I have been reading around again about Linux, the many different distributions that exist and seeing people configuring every little detail, that got me determined to try them again and that's when I did get my laptop.
Spending all that time reading about all the required modules needed to have my system up and running and all the configuration needed to have it as I want has been eye opening and the more time I spent reading, the more exciting it got.

Both the forums and the wiki have been the greatest help to me, so this is also a thanks to all who contributed in the wiki and to the people here in the forums.

Glad to be here now with you all and I hope to give and take as much as I can!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello. I’m Eli. I have been using Linux for about 2 months. Through my hopping I have discovered that arch-based distros are where it’s at. Started with Manjaro and Endeavour but now finally have a good old vanilla Arch build. 220mb idle memory has been beautiful for my shitty Fujitsu laptop.

That's what I am talking about! Always an intelligent remark. No other OS forum has people like that.
