Greetings from Norway

Hello, guys! Linux newbie here.

Im kinda new to linux, and i`m just getting into things. Privacy reasons is what got me interested in Linux. Tried severeal distros before i landed on Archlabs.

The first thing i actually did was a fresh Arch install with xfce, and that worked pretty good. Although i had a hard time understanding how to change settings and looks/themes. The install reminded me of the old days of ms-dos. So went pretty smooth.

Started watching some youtube videoes on linux, and fell in love with tiling window managers. After trying Arch with i3, and manjaro i3 i finnaly landed on Archlabs. Also looked at mint, ubuntu and mx.

Archlabs is beautifull out of the box, looks awesome and im done looking for a distro.


Welcome aboard from Canada, hope that you ll enjoy AL as well as the forum.

Loads of stuff to read.

Thanks, i am really enjoying it. Just installed yay via git, and then Spotify. So then that gate opened up, the speed compared to my old win10 install is absurd :slight_smile:

lol, yep, much faster right ! & updates don t take days (so to speak) as well .
