Hi everybody!


Just found this distro via youtube. I've been a BunsenLabs user for a while now but decided to try something non-debian based. I got sucked into watching a ton of different video's on how to install arch and configure it on my Thinkpad. My concern with the "Arch way" is I didn't want to bork over my Window 10 install which I need for work (some stuff just doesn't work in linux). So I started looking at Arch mixes and some were looking good and some aren't rolling. Then late on night I came across a video mentioning ArchLabs. Slapped it in a VM and about an hour later decided to try it on bare metal. I'm loving everything so far.

About me: I work in IT as a sysadmin, love my job. I've used the 3 major platforms extensively. I've been using Linux since way back in the mid 90's with Suse 5.x and 6.x being my first distros to try followed by Mandrake, redhat and so on and so forth.

I have some questions about tint2 preferences and some other stuff, but I'll post those in the relevant area's.

So "hi" to everyone here (I see a few familiar faces) and some new ones.

Thanks!

I'd love to help, but when it comes to linux I am more of an advanced user than a sysadmin. In my IT career it's been focused on Windows Server and the Active Directory scheme. If you have questions about ESXi clustering, high availability, Exchange and so so on I can help. But when it comes to linux I have more questions than I have answers. Each time I learn something new it opens a new slew of of questions. It's fun and intellectually pleasing, but can be exhausting also. I still have project reports due for clients, capacity planning, RFP's to issue and so on. So I don't get as much time to tinker with Linux as I'd like. Now having moved from debian based I find myself both excited and nervous. I'm not sure what the primary differences are and so on. One thing I can say for certain is that I am looking forward to learn though.
