My original plan was to rewrite that review about Norsemen that was so rudely deleted by my fubared WordPress editing system. Alas I’m still not feeling like I’m up for it. Maybe later today or so. Anyway, what I did instead was downloading the newest ManjaroLinux snapshot 18.0.1, putting it on a stick and installed it on MiniMe. And that’s exactly the computer I’m now typing this on, so you can see it all werked out fine and I can use my lamest old Lenovo thing as production computer. No problem.
Here’s the story so far:
Okay. let’s talk. Let me clear some things up. I know every time when I review or write about ArchLinux distros you get exposed to some screenshots showing cryptic Terminals with command lines and all that shit. But don’t fear. Under normal circumstances you don’t have to employ the terminal at all, at least not more than you’re doing it in your super cushy Minty environment. It’s just for when and if you wanna make use of the nifty AUR (Arch User Repository), the only place on the known-to-mankind internetz where you can find and install such niceties as SL viewers with just a – simple – command line and a couple mouseclicks. And Orca does it for installation of more mainstream softwares, like Qbittorrent, too since the terminal is quicker once you know how to use it. Usually, as a fresh n00b, you do all that in Pamac, a GUI interface as simple as you find it in Mint.
So, really now, if you are homely in your Mint install and know you way around, there is no reason not to try some sorta Arch. It feels so good like tickling a super furry soft pussy. =^.^=
