Made the Big Switch

Back to Linux. I'll be dual booting between Manjaro and Windows 10 for the time being. I need to keep Windows around for all of my games.

I built a second computer as well to keep my Plex server running and my torrents seeding while I dual boot. Ryzen 2200G CPU, 4 GB RAM, mostly built from parts I had lying around.

Coolness. I briefly ran Xubunto some time ago and it was awesome. But I really like Windows 10 64 bit Pro and my g/f and I are huge PC gamers so.... Big Grin

This looks nice. Haven't used that variant. I used Mint for a few years. Was my favorite. A lot fo them have come so far there's actually decent options now.

It definitely is great, and it's way better than it used to be. It still doesn't quite cut it for me.

I found a great foobar clone called deadbeef. Highly recommend.

@Thomas, it's getting really close to being on par with windows honestly, it's kinda frightening how far linux has come in the nearly twenty years since the last major attempt at making it an equal in the gaming and compatibility sense.

Loki Games was a really awesome company back in the day, they were just a decade or so too early.

now with valve helping push, and soon google as well as libraries like vulkan and such, it's inevitable that OS will matter way less than it used to in the near future.

and honestly, I can't wait for that day to get here.
