Tech Talk
« on: September 20, 2019, 04:41:04 PM »
Let's talk about all things tech related!

I'm start off deep nerd with some Linux talk. I've been using Linux for about two and a half years now and I'm loving it. I haven't took the time to learn all the ins and outs but I can usually fix any problem I have. Only limitation is gaming. I went from a strand of Ubuntu over the Manjaro which seems pretty neat so far. Best thing about Linux is it's so easy for me to get it back up and running when something breaks with a fresh install and it generally runs faster than my Windows partition.

Linux is like programming; I fail every time I try to learn it. I think it's mostly because in both cases I'm not learning it for any specific use. I'm just learning it for the heck of it. That's weak motivation. I always hit a point where I'm like "what's the point of this"... and there isn't one (Windows does everything I want) so I give up.

What made you get into using Linux?

I was getting tired of all the bloated Windows additions and the fact that there were so many forced updates. Also all the privacy invasions with Microsoft tracking all kinds of things. Plus, I like tinkering with stuff and Linux lets you manipulate basically everything.
