Hello AL-L forum-denizens! Thanks for your nice forum, & for the fact that you seem happy about non-AL-L users entering your fine club-house.
Actually, tbh, i do have AL-L KDE from “archlabs-2019.01.20.iso” in an older VM, & this arvo i’ve tried [but failed, sob sniff] to create another VM this time from “archlabs-2020.05.04.iso”. However i’m not running AL-L itself in my actual boxes, which instead comprise:
- Main Tower: Primary boot = Arch KDE [via
archfi(yes, i am a fat lazy old cheat, i know)], & secondary boot = SolydK.
- Laptop = SparkyLinux MATE + Compiz.
- Muck-around Tower = SparkyLinux MATE + Compiz.
As per my Profile summary, both #1 & #2 have had a variety of Nixes on them leading to the current iterations. I also like playing with / learning about lots of different distros & DE’s [sometimes WMs, but comparatively rarely] in my VMs. I regard myself as a clueless enthusiast; keen as mustard yet thick as two short planks, & only having “discovered” Linux late in 2013, going full-time with it in 2014. It’s such fun; i love it. I took early retirement in 2015, hence don’t need to sully my hands any more professionally with MS.
I’ve meandered my way here from another couple of Arch-based fora, one of which used to be a very happy playground for some years until sadly overrun by wretched orcs & balrogs dispatched from Mordor under the withering Eye-of-Sauron. Or something.
I’d quite like to mention that i really enjoyed this [coz: 1. Local Boy Done Good, 2. Blue beats Orange any day, 3. Beautiful plumage, the Norwegian Blue]:
And this very mean cruel but weirdly Not Inaccurate dig at my beloved Plasma also had me in giggles:
Fwiw, though i have it auto-changing wallpapers every 7’, this was my Tower’s desktop a little earlier today:
I hope not to make too much of a nuisance of myself around here, & indeed generally aspire to be… Mostly Harmless… & so … Don’t Panic.
