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

@_discovery other distros like arch don't make things easier to use, make things like this easier to fix

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

@dym @_discovery nope really the most fixable, if something is wrong on windows of mac probably you will have to search for pages and pages of outdated information on the internet or maybe wait in the hope someone else fix that

on linux you simply search on the arch wiki

@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
