Archlinux

A few weeks ago I decided to drop Windows for good. I’ve always been a fan of Debian based distributions. Ubuntu is too “bloated” for my liking. So I decided to give Crunchbang. Everything was smooth. I was in love. Then one day I made a boo boo. Some how I managed to delete the network manager app, and I had no internet access. Well shit…

I could not find my Crunchbang USB drive I had made, but I had an ArchLinux one laying close by, so I thought screw it. I had been playing with Arch for a long time in a VM even when I was a regular Windows user. I bit the bullet and plugged in the drive and away I went.

The install process is very different than what I am use to, but it is not impossible. There are a ton of great resources out there. It took just a few minutes and I was up and running. I couldn’t be happier. I have a small problem with wifi, but I don’t think it will be an issue to fix. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I guess that’s what I can do when I finish this post, huh?

Expect more Arch posts in the future.
