Hey #!

Hey there!

I've been a full-time Ubuntu user since 2009 but got tired with the recent developments. Especially its focus on Unity and Mir made me look for alternatives. I've also used Mint and OpenSUSE but didn't like them particularly.

Installed #! today and loving it already. With the post-installation script and smxi, everything got installed smoothly (even my dual monitor setup with nvidia card was recognized).

I hate the thunar version that comes pre-installed though. Upgraded to 1.6.2 with siduction repos. Looks much better now. #! should really ship with thunar 1.6.x.

Hoping to have a good time here. Thanks everyone for this awesome distro! smile

Re: Hey #!


It's interesting to note how many of our new users these days claim to have come from Ubuntu and been disillusioned with the route Canonical are taking...
