Decided to try out Arch after using BunsenLabs for awhile. As a long-time Debian user and fan of the APT package management system I was preparing for an adjustment period but was thrilled with pacman. Up-to-date packages available directly from the repos? Oddball programs available in the AUR that I’d normally have to manually download and compile? Awesome! I’m a one-way convert at this point even if I do have fond memories of the Debian world.
ArchLabs was a lucky find since my plan was to essentially recreate BunsenLabs bit by bit. Thanks for doing the work for me and introducing me to a lot of other lightweight desktop tools in the process!
Personal stuff: US resident. I enjoy reading Ligotti, Lovecraft, DFW, Bukowski, misc philosophy. I’m a half-assed Python programmer and a fan of the Godot game engine. I keep time on a 13 year old, beat-up Tama Swingstar kit that I spraypainted in my punk rock days and play chess from time to time. Pencil drawing, knife throwing, gardening, lockpicking. Nice to meet you!
