Online school sucks

May 10, 2021 — ~samm

For real, being in online school is boring. We got vacation for a bit but you get a shitload of schoolwork for no reason. Except for you not making it whilst you did. Like, tf? I just want to go back to school instead of being bored at home and trying out a lot of Tilde services >:(. Well, I should make the best of it. Cya.

Endeavour OS - A simple, yet convenient Linux distro.

April 08, 2021 — ~samm

Hey guys, welcome to this blog. A quick FYI... FYI:i wanted to make this blog a video but my SD card commited sad. So yeah.

The installer is a standard installer that ships with most Linux distros so we won't go into that.

We are going to take a look into the eos-welcome screen! It surely is one of the most unique Linux after-install-welcomers I've ever seen!

EOS-WELCOMER-SCREEN

See for yourself, except Linux distros like Ubuntu where you can add your Google account and that's it, you can really customize Endeavour to however you want and Endeavour encourages it!

Now the for the bloat... It comes with absolutely no bloat. Well, the default Desktop Enviroment (DE) bloat, but that's it. Now, hear me out. EOS is bassicly Arch with a skin.

Like it or not, it's what people want. For people like me, installing and maintaining Arch is a pain in the ass and Endeavour eliminates it.

Support

The support of EOS is so good! I can send a Tweet to EOS at almost any time and I get a reply! That is truly amazing, right?

They have a Telegram chat and I never really went there, but judging how good their support is on Twitter, I could say it's good automaticly.

EOS also has a pretty big forum where you can go with any questions, wether you're a Linux noob or expert, they welcome you!

Performance

Well, like I said, EOS is basiclly Arch with a skin wich means the performance is great! I can run heavy games, under Proton and a Virtual machine, if you will, with excellent performance.

(no benchmarking tests as I am not really good with them)

ARM support

For those of you who don't know what ARM is, it is a mobile CPU architecture. This means that you could run Endeavour OS on i.e the new Apple Macbook's with the M1 chip wich in my opinion is a huge step forward.

Plus, you can run EOS on mobile devices and on a Rasberry Pie, like the new Rasberry 400 with an quad-core Cortex-A72 CPU. Pro's and con's

So far, in the few months I've been using EOS, I haven't seen any bugs, glitches or else.

Here are the pro's

  • It is open-source
  • Feels snappy
  • Excellent performance
  • Speeds up shitty hardware, like my laptop.
  • Runs almost anything I throw at it
  • The documentation and community make the experience 20x better

    That's really it... I haven't found any cons to EOS so far and I enjoy using it!

    Hey guys,


    I am at the barber right now, I just got my haircut and I'm waiting for my mom to finish letting her hair cut.

    This day is a pretty boring day if I got to be honest.
