Hey,

I'm 20 years old, from Germany and in real life people call me Felix. Online I go under the name ne0phyte. That's a lower case n and a zero - if you mistake that for N and/or O you may want to change your font :P

I used to try various Linux distributions all the time but never kept using one for a longer time and/or as main OS. As someone whos gaming a lot I always went back to Windows.
After Valve announced and released the Steam beta client for Linux I installed Arch (~8 months ago) and sticked to it. I'm now running Arch on my ThinkPad and on my desktop.
But I still have a Windows on my desktop for games.
I chose Arch because I liked the idea of installing everything from the ground up and being forced to learn how to configure everything. (Unlike *buntu where you get tons of things you may never need installed.)

The more I learn about Linux (configuration, tools, APIs/libs) and get into various core tools the more it feels like a huge sandbox and I love that. Oh and I finally started learning C/C++ (I'm most proficient in Java SE/EE).

I'm also into mechanical keyboards - this is how I got here in the first place. Phyrne asked me on Deskthority.net to join you on unixhub.net :)

That's it for now!

Hello and welcome!

If you really really want to build things from the ground up I would recommend LFS :3

I think I looked into LFS a long time ago (and failed back then).
So far I am quite happy with Arch and I have everything to my liking :P
