KaOS is my first (Linux) love. I think I made the bold move to completely move to Linux Dec 20 something 2016.
And what can I say ? You can't describe whem you are in love, you just know it. And I'm in love here, yes.
I have tried (and by that I don't mean full installation) other distros but non of them is this sweet.
While in other distros, I tried to make them look like my KaOS I was used to...(you alredy know that did not go so well, right ? Right.
The Midna theme is just breath-taking. Plus other the KDE (I love kde too....) dark and transparent themes (some of them don't work anymore and know if it's me or what).
I understand the philosophy of KaOS; minimal packages, kde and Qt. Its just I that wish something could be done about this, just something, a little (trust me, it's not that little). While I was at other distros I envied how some of the progmamming tools were available in their store. I mean I left WIndows (can one go back to being stupid after being enlightened ? I doubt, and I don't mean being in Windows is being stupid, it's coming to KaOS that's enlightenment ) so that I can learn how to program.
And I'm glad I came to KaOS (Linux). I think that we (Yes, since now I'm a part of this I say "WE" COZ I feel I belong here
now) should do what we do best and that's provide our users with programming tools. Yes, there are a ton of programming languages out there and it would not be MINIMALISTIC if every programmer got tools for their favorite language now, would it? Nonetheless I still wish I got my tools here, all of them... (selfish eh ? I know. Aren't we selfish when in love ?). Now I'm planning to dual boot with Arch...so that I could get 'these' things.
But i think when we love someone (KaOS (smile)), we love them with all their flaws. I don't if it's me but sometimes bluetooth is not just that smooth...I haven't used instant messenger...etc
Demm in particular has been responding to my questions here and a few more, awesome. I don't know if after 8 months I still don't understand a lot about Linux means I have failed myself, I don't know. But I know I'm rally trying, everyday.
Right now my system is broken and I'm writing this LOVE LETTER from a live KaOS usb (lots of love, wouldn't you say (smile...)). I don't have boot loader and I'm learning that UEFI..systemd-boot... matter (the first time I installed KaOS i did a new partition table, it seems I went past these. Now I got tons files and can't do that.)
I wish I knew all these overnight so that I can support my distro, I and everybody else reading this can make donations....I know. And we should.
We love KaOS with all its sharp and rough edges.
Lots of for KaOS, Josh.
