things that failed along the way:
- the rufus process to configure usb
- the usb drive itself
- the installation (several times)
- no wifi, had to upgrade kernel + wifi firmware
- once kernel upgraded, too high for nvidia drivers
- incrementally upgrade kernel till a working wifi + nvidia install (several attempts)
- finally main pc working
- libGL.so not found (broken symlink somehow, manual fix)
- xlocale.h not found (manual symlink fix, third party code)
- and probably more I just glossed on

(BTW every OS is broken, linux at least is the most fixable one)

@Skolliagh
i've seen a friend using that, it looks very useful that includes ML packages (even tho i'm not studying ML)

at the moment i start from debian netinst and i have some scripts that puts together my enviroment, it is some kind of 1px lines crunchbang (openbox/conky/tint2), anyway i'm thinking about switching back to archlinux

@neauoire github desktop. I prefer snapcraft.io for grabbing apps, here is a post on how snapcraft.io/github-desktop BUT the latest version is broken (...). You can download the 2.0.4 release here github.com/shiftkey/desktop/is and then install manually like this github.com/shiftkey/desktop/is
