I just installed Arch for the first time. I'm currently running Cinnamon just so I can have a GUI. What do you guys recommend I install?

Install gentoo

Install gentoo if you are serious about linux

well dude, Arch is kinda not-so-good now because of the recent systemd thingy and how poisonous its community is.

Another distro that picked up its philosophy of being interesting and innovative and really simple and fast is Void Linux, I would suggest installing that and starting from there.

Install Gentoo.

I started using Linux is August and I'm using Arch to test the more mature Linux waters

>>51573443
Arch isn't a "mature" distro. It's exclusively for hobbyists and its primary appeal is geek fun.

If you want "mature Linux" you can install Fedora or Debian

What graphics card?

>>51573866
It's intel integrated graphics. I'm not sure what series.

Oh, ok. Just wanted to say that I was able to fix screen tearing on MATE with both nvidia and intel graphics by running nvidia-xconfig to generate a new xorg.conf and using compton as compositor.
On Cinnamon, you can't just use a different compositor I think because it's using a fixed one.

Hope you can fix it.

>>
>>51574973
mature implies it's still alive

>>51575065
I went with Cinnamon because Gnome was giving me problems at the time.
>>
>>51573906
Guess this could help you:

Install Gentoo.
>>51574973
I have recently found a Slackware 4.0 CD in my home. I should check it out.
>>51575065
qt is bloat
If you want a floating wm/DE, just do XFCE or yeah, openbox.
In my opinion, tiling is the way to go, though.

>>51575083
slackware is in fact alive.
