• YOU ARE WELCOME! ... say hello to the community:


    Totally useless post just to say that I finally moved entirely to Antergos from Arch, after about 5 weeks of fooling around it and making sure I was doing the right thing. That’s right, baby! :thumbsup:

    Since I’m exclusively a Linux user, I’ll be using it for both entertainment, work and study. My 7 year old box is a Quad Core i5 760 with 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD and a Nvidia GTX 560 Ti.

    I’ll be using i3 WM on top of an LTS kernel and proprietary drivers.

  • Thanks both. I will surely do, @joekamprad. As soon as I am settled. I have in fact only recently switched to i3 from Xfce. So I have nothing much of use to anyone at this point. But will surely do soon enough.

    I also look forward to contribute to the Antergos development in the future in any way I can.

  • Howdy everyone! My name is Rosetta and I’ve been an Antergos user since September 2014 (aside from the somewhat recent time I switched to OpenSUSE for a little while, but we don’t talk about that). Antergos is the only distro that’s truly made my computer feel just right. I love how easy it is to set up and use, even my dad uses it :)

    Anyway, I’d like to get involved with the project!

  • @joekamprad I am pretty new to Antergos. I used it a while back but back then it still had a lot of problems with stability. I ended up leaving it for a while to try Manjaro which I heard was more stable. It broke on me 3 times after installing in one night. I got fed up with it eventually because of its crashes, slowness, and bugs. I still like Manjaro, and I am a huge fan of its community, but I don’t think it’s for me. I started using Zorin OS for a while and I even used the Ultimate edition. The thing was very buggy and had ~20 preinstalled games which I was not a fan of. Under light use, I had problems with the theming breaking and not applying properly and I couldn’t install other themes because Zorin is using an outdated GTK system. I tried asking simple questions on their forum and it got my IP banned. If you’re wondering what the questions were they were “Zorin themes not Updating” and “Is there any way of getting KDE on Zorin?” I recently came back to Antergos after reinstalling Zorin OS 12 3 more times and it’s been great. I have had some problems with Synaptics not working and that was about it. Most of the bugs have been patched and it seems like a very reliable os that won’t break on me! This community is great and I usually get responses quickly. In fact, as I’m typing this I got a response about a post I made about 10 minutes ago! I feel like I can finally stop distro-hopping because this distro has it all, stability, reliability, security, updated software and Arch Linux-based! I feel like this community may even be better than Arch itself because I got banned from Arch’s site as well because I asked a question about whether or not Manjaro was Arch Linux. Thank you to everyone for making such a great community and hello Antergos!

  • Welcome to Antergos then @CadenMitchell:grinning:.

    I got banned from Arch’s site as well because I asked a question about whether or not Manjaro was Arch Linux.

    hehehe… we get that a lot over here:smile:. It seems that many of our users regularly get banned from the Arch Forums for apparent grievances, such as suggesting that Arch may not be the best, among other things. Over here, elitism is NOT the practice, and all questions are welcome! No matter how simple they may be. Antergos is for everyone, so enjoy!

    I started using Zorin OS for a while

    Same here actually !!! Zorin was what got me hooked on Linux for it’s advanced and modern GUI and familiar feel. After using it for a little over a month however, I was ready for something new. Like you, I then moved here, to Antergos.

    It seems we share many things in common friend ;). May your experience with Antergos be hassle free and exceed greatly your expectations. And with that, welcome to the community!

    Well, it’s good to know that I’m not alone! ;) I even tried to appologise to the Arch Linux team for what I’d done to get banned in a email and they cursed me out and said that Manjaro wasn’t even Arch and that if I tried to sign up again they’d do “worse.” I love Arch as a distro base, but I definitely hate the “Arch Way.”

  • Yep. Arch has a reputation for censoring their content. Apparently, if someone posts things trashing systemd on there, it gets deleted !!! All in all, Arch is certainly neither beginner friendly nor all-inclusive in it’s content, which is exactly why other distros like Antergos and Manjaro exist to help bridge that gap ;).

  • Dear friends!

    On my opinion:
    It is easy to say something against ArchLinux community and their warrior alike behavior.
    But the rules on Archlinux community are the rules on archlinux community, read first, and act according to your feeling to join, or not to join!

    Archlinux Community is a Warriors Ship, they are doing great work for us!
    We should not act against them.

    We should build up a communication in peace and understanding.

    I think that Antergos a place for new rookies, and when they grow to soldiers they will have an impact to Archlinux as well!

    From inside the bubble of linux it looks like it is big, but in the end linux need a lot more users and developers to get the work done.

    Peace Archlinux!

  • I guess it’s my turn…

    To begin with, I’m just a High School Student and I like programming (have been coding for around a year, but I was switching between languages very often and for now Rust seems to be perfect for me so I’ll stick with it for a while).
    I started playing with Linux, I think… In January, because I was playing with Ruby and Ubuntu seemed to be more suitable for that than Windows and in September I finally decided to fully replace Windows with Ubuntu, but it was too slow (too many freezes, dunno why tbh) so I started playing with Arch and Manjaro, but updates on Manjaro seem too slow for me, so I was looking for something else (too lazy to install Arch). And here I am, Antergos is enough for me now.

    For now, I’m trying to decide between vim and neovim for Rust, so I don’t think I’ll be very active in the forum.

    Nice to meet you.

    If you read it all, have a cookie: :cookie:

    btw.: this pic shows how I look most of the time because everything bores me, haha

  • @joekamprad Yes. We shouldn’t hate on ArchLinux or its community because it was my fault, not theirs, that I was banned. Arch has done a lot for Linux and without Arch, Manjaro and Antergos wouldn’t even exist. I don’t hate Arch at all and I’m not in any way trying to say that they are a bad distro, they were just following protocall for their forum which I should have respected more. We should all be thankful that Arch exists because it has forever, in a positive way, changed Linux. ;)

  • Over the years, forgot how many, I have used a multitude of different distros. About two years ago I came across Antergos. After some struggles with Cnchi at the time, I finally got it to replace Manjaro. I liked Manjaro, and still do, but Antergos just felt right. Actually, it is a boring distro… There is not much that does not work or goes wrong.

    I love the community, and the developers and moderators do a great job. Maybe not as often as I would like to, but where possible I leave my two cents to try to help to solve problems on the forum. Btw, I am also an administrator of a FB group that is mainly focused on Antergos, and Arch in general (Antergos & Arch). We could use some more input there too. So, if you have time, just drop by to say hello.

    Never to old to learn.

  • Hey all!

    Just wanted to say hello :) I just migrated to Antergos from Manjaro. I’d been using Manjaro for almost a year now and have always wanted to give Antergos a try, and well… The opportunity presented itself last night. So now I’ve got the KDE version of Antergos running on my new Acer Swift 3, and it looks great!

    Hope you’re all having a great day out there in Antergos land :)

    Matt
