I am starting the linux challenge.
Manjaro 16.06.1 XFCE 4 compiz going on 2 weeks
Was on a post here ragging on linux, I have tried versions of linux over the year just did not find anything but frustration. Then I thought to myself how can I rag on something when I am not current. Did a hunt around for Distros came across Spatry's cup of linux and Manjaro, watch the videos and did my install.
I am very happy with the way Manjaro works I find it a relaxing OS, Pacman commands, Pamac , AUR and the setup of my desktop.
After two weeks and no windows I am relaxed and happy, broke Manjaro reinstalled and things are working again. Found out late I could have fixed it, but now I know.
I have games I want to play on windows like skyrim modded, and to play skyrim on linux I need to setup my mods so I can use them in linux and I do not want to even run windows to do that. Purchase some games I never played that run on linux and again having fun.
What really gets me about this is, I am running this on a 80 gig HD and it is just half full and I have the things I need on it. My windows 10 is on a 480 gig ssd and it is over half full, talk about a over weight OS.
Will keep windows 10 on the ssd and Manjaro allows me to boot into windows if I need to. When I get the money will purchase a new ssd for Manjaro.
For me this is the year when linux moved over to the usable side, am no longer a windows fanboy, and I have windows to thank for me not being a fanboy any more windows 10 and all the junk.
And I would like to thank all the people on this forum for helping me with my problems. Having a good support group helps with the transition.
It is funny not having windows withdrawals lol.
It use to be for me this game does not work and that does not work in linux now with the way windows 10 works it make linux look good.
