Hello from Malaysia

Wed Jun 06, 2018 7:43 pm

So I'm really new to Linux in general, less than 1 year exp. My main distro is Ubuntu Mate and Linux Mint, but I also run Ubuntu vanilla. Been looking for a non Ubuntu-based distro, just in case Mark Shuttleworth finally decides to sell Canonical to M$.

I've tried Manjaro and Antergos, both are problematic for new users - especially when you don't know about EFI management and bootloader troubleshooting - even though it's the easiest Arch-based linux. I finally settled on Solus, because, it's easy installation, it looks good, it works, it has spotify, vlc, kdenlive and audacity. I read that Steam works too as well as games from GOG, I'm looking forward to testing that out.

As you might've already guessed, I'm just a peasant normie who hates Microsoft and wants a distribution that is as far away from M$' grubby hands as possible. And as a normie, Solus - so far - seems like the most viable alternative. Looking forward to see it's growth.

Good work Ikey Doherty.

Regards,
Haluan.

Well Solus doesn't has anything against Microsoft and some packages like vscode for example are in the repository.

I know. It's just me; I've just been made a cranky guy after decades getting frustrated by Windows & Microsoft. I don't have anything against anyone using them, but I just have had enough of it.
