Built my new machine! I’ve built computers all my life. So that part was easy. I’ve also dabbled with Linux on my own machines before. I’ve used Linux extensively at my last tech job. So I’m comfortable with bash and vi and various commands. But never dove into making it my only operating system. I’ve grown sick of the lack of privacy and I believe we’ve let it go too far. With Windows 11 damn near forcing us to use online logins just to use our computers, I finally drew the line!
After playing with Kubuntu (hate Gnome), PoPOS! (hate Gnome, yet tried it) and Linux Mint, I settled on Linux Mint. Tinkered with OpenRGB and got most of my software installed. Now it’s time to spend weeks tweaking things and installing games.
