As the title says, I switched from Linux Mint to Manjaro. I’ve been playing around with it for a while in a vm, and I liked what I saw, so I decided what the hell, and took the plunge. I’m now about a month in, so here’s capturing a quick “why?”, and some first impressions. Continue reading I switched from Mint to Manjaro Gnome and I like it.

So there’s this family tradition of mine that every year, since we’ve had kids, I’m making a photo book of the highlights of said year. The original, slightly apocalyptic idea was actually to have something physical that we can look at, sitting around the fire, when all of this (waves hands around) is gone and collapsed. (And we have firewood and don’t have to burn our books to not freeze to death.) But even without the Mad Maxian take, it’s a nice tradition, makes a nice Christmas present to everyone, and gives me a couple of sleepless nights, when I realize we are almost on deadline and sit and collect photos and make the thing in about 2 bursts.
