So in a few days here I'll be selling my R9 Fury and secondary/steam library SSD cause atm I could use the money and could go without the distraction of games... I also decided I would need something to kill time besides my college course work however. Which is why I intend to start the one year Linux challenge.
Now I'll be dual booting windows just incase because my classes are mostly online... But I intend to have Linux as my primary OS. If this is cheating than I won't officially enter the challenge of course.
Now this isn't exactly my first time using Linux... about 10 years ago in middle school I bought a dumpster Windows XP system at a garage sale for $10 and threw Ubuntu on it just for the hell of it... But that was a looong time ago. Oh yeah last year when they were giving win10 away for free and it shit the bed I tried to configure arch from scratch for about 4 days before returning to win7.
So any recommendations? I'm thinking Gnome3 cause It's supposed to be simple enough. But I am doing this to actually learn something. So what would you guys reccomend I start with... and what would be a good Linux based skill to start learning? Thanks for any feedback and take it easy!
