Linux Newbie - WeebMachine

Mon Aug 14, 2017 2:46 pm

Hello all! I'm a brand new member to this community and also brand new to Linux. I am moving over to Linus from windows 10 because I hate it and it's always causing the resources on my laptop to max out and just run slow. Also because of the possibilities!! I have no coding knowledge (I'm a hardware guy) but I've always wanted to learn and already my laptop runs ALOT better than on windows. Now I just need to figure out how to be able to play Old School Runescape on it and I'll be all set 😂

Hey, WeebMachine. Welcome! This is a great time to learn Linux, and especially Solus. Post your questions on here. The G+ community is pretty active, and if you want to take a stab at IRC you can usually find a developer there during daytime hours in Europe. Glad to have you here!

Hello WeebMachine!

Welcome to the wonderful and exciting world of Linux and Solus. :D

You have some great reasons why you switched from windows there... much like my reasons I switched.

I used to play runescape classic, however on windows. I'm sure there is a way to play it, as I believe it still runs in the browser.

I like the big emoji :3

Welcome WeebMachine! Judging from your username do you watch anime at all? If not, where did you get that username from? ^-^

Yeah I moved to Linux after finding out Windows 10 used 1.6 GB of RAM (out of 3.8 GB on my Acer) when IDLE! No wonder my sister's laptop with just 2 GB RAM is unusable (though I also feel that is due to malware that plagues that system).
