Well … no idea at what time Arch upstream posted it, I found it early local morning today. It was just one of the many small updates, and so far the only one for today, so nothing special. Really?
Not only did they send me a new Nvidia driver 418.56-10 but a new Linux kernel version 5.0.10. So … you ask why this is so exciting? Because … because reasons. Reasons maybe beyond your comprehension, totally not interesting for you, and like boring n stuff. Okay. But walk a mile in my flipflops and see this in comparison to other Linux distros, far more famous and widespread distros, like Ubuntu and Mint and Debian and MX and Suse and Manjaro and elementary and whatnot. All those distros will have to wait days, weeks, even months until they will receive any of those goodnesses. And I just got ’em this morning. Before breakfast. Unceremonially dropped in my inbox. Just like so. Plop plopp.
Needless to say the download took maybe two minutes and worked without any problems at all. And swoosh I was like so totally up to date with the latest shit you can find on any computer, not just Linux but Win and Mac as well. Win won’t update your user software anyway, and leaves it all to you to care about your shit as they only install “security” (spyware) programs on a machine that’s supposed to be yours.
Anyhoo, just wanted to let you know again that I feel I’m in the bestest hands with frederic2ec and his Namib GNU/Linux. Indeed couldn’t be happierer. 🙂
