Hi Everyone,
My Name is Roman I'm a Student of History from Austria and I have switched my entire Workflow over to Linux in 2018 because I didn't like any of Apples Computers since 2013 because even the professional line by then started to become unupgradeable Trash with a sup par lifespan. I had been working on and with Macs for 10 years at that point and going back to a Non-*nix System like Windows was just not in it for me.

So I stayed. Built an entirely liquid cooled Ryzen Workstation with a 1080TI on which after some Distro-Hopping I decided to run ElmentaryOS.

My Laptop (A 2015 MBPro Retina 13") had seen a number of DualBoot Solutions over the last year (Elementary OS+ MacOS, OpenSuse+MacOS, Fedora+ MacOS, Ubuntu + MacOS) Mac OS wise I stayed on 10.11 because all the Operating Systems after El Capitan lacked Stability and were crammed with useless features. When my battery let me know that it had only 70% of its past capacity and the difference became noticeable I wiped the disk and decided to go for something lightweight, optimized and simple which I could then customize to fit my needs. So I went with Linux Lite. Which thanks to a new Theme and a Plank Dock now looks and feels a lot like Cupertinos OS. And yes I love dark themes:


I use it primarily for Writing, editing photos, doing research (although most of the big workloads -like batch downloading- are taken over by my workstation) and coding on the go. I work with Processing and have been for a number of years, Bash, Python and I do some RAD development using Lazarus, which is essentially a FOSS Delphi.

I'm very much looking forward to be part of the community :) Thx for having me ;D

Hi anarchyreload, welcome to the forum & thanks for choosing us.
Hopefully LL will meet all your needs - in my experience it has a lot
to offer which you wont find with other distros ...

Cheers
Mike
 
Linux user since 2014. Below: 64bit OS installed in Legacy mode on MBR (msdos/ext4) formatted SSDs, except the pi which uses a micro SDHC card:
2017 - Raspberry pi 3B (4cores) ~ Arm710@1.2GHz - LibreElec, used for upgrading our Samsung TV (excellent for the task)  
2012 - Lenovo G580 2689 (2cores; 4threads] ~ i3-3110M - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working smoothly)
2011 - Samsung NP-N145 Plus (1core; 2threads) ~ Intel Atom N455@1.66GHz - Manjaro (tried LL3 series but lagged)
2008 - Asus X71Q (2cores) ~ Intel T3200@2.0GHz - LL4.4/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL working beautifully)
2007 - Dell Latitude D630 (2cores) ~ Intel T7100@1.8GHz - LL3.8/Win8.1 dual-boot (LL really zippy!) - my daily driver  :-)
