Hello guys, I'm SlayerProof32 and if you remember, I used to be an avid Manjaro user, however they made some controversial changes with their forum that annoyed me. That allowed me to look for alternatives! There are two that I found that I loved.
- EndeavourOS (Strong community, distro built for those who know what they are doing)
- Garuda Linux
I was drawn to this distro because I'm a big KDE fan and loved the initial look of the Dr4gon1zed edition. The pre-installed distro tools also look cool (Assistant, boot config, gamer, hardware manager). I also love the prioritization of BTRFS. I've been using it for 3 years now, no problems yet.
AND FINALLY someone gets HOW ANNOYING it is when YOU HAVE 50+ tabs open and your Linux system starts to freeze up. I'd much prefer a OOM killer kill old tabs, rather than having a locked up system I have to force reboot! I use early OOM now, but I heard nohang does a similar thing!
This distro really feels like something I can actually recommend to people who are Linux beginners. Hopefully the experience proves it! Will report back after I boot a live image!
