Is Solus the best beginner "just werkz" Linux distro for beginners?
I'd have to say yes from my experience since it's easy for Windows users to adjust to and looks great right after installation.

Is there anything better?

xubuntu

this
but has lots of issues with screen tearing on dual-gpu laptops

>>61783749
It is still kinda pre-alpha so you'll encounter some missing essential packages here and there. So I can't say that it just werks. Mint is still the king in that area.
>>
>>61783749
Xfce mint
>>
>>61783812
If you like a beginner to use an obsolete DE and making him getting used to lack of GUI tools - then yes, not a bad choice.
>>
>>61783812
What makes XFCE good for beginners?
>>
>>61783749
Just use Fedora as gateway loonix
>>
Can it composite with the default setup? Or do I need to start installing extra packages?
>>
>>61783749
Yeah it's great. My first ditro and I'm having zero issues with it so far.

>It is still kinda pre-alpha
Not really, everything works perfectly on my laptop. What are some missing essential packages?

It's the fastest Distro I have ever used. I used it for almost a year, but I just needed something more. I'm using arch right now. I might go back to it in the future. Really nice.
>>
>>61784188
Been using it for almost a month.
I wouldn't call it the best distro but it's the nicest I've tried and it's probably the best beginner friendly one at the moment.
>>
I tried to shill Solus long ago when nobody have heard of it. My thread got 0 replies. Archived within minutes.

Now? Every Solus thread will get tons of replies.
>>
>>61783749
Switched from Arch to this, never been happier.

e:3.468s

>>61783889
Agreed. It's the better, faster version of xubuntu.
>>
>>61783749
no, fuck off kevin
>>
>>61786179
Love the boot speeds. It was around 15s on my HDD, much faster than any other OS I've tried.

It's not just boot speeds though, on the HDD my laptop running Solus felt as fast and responsive as my windows 10 desktop with an SSD.
>>
>>61783749
Enjoy your repositories with maybe 7 or so packages.
>>
>>61786477
I count more than 7.
>>
>>61783749
Not at the moment.
>>
>>61783749
Where you been Kevin? Seems like it's been a while.
>>
Is Solus bleeding edge rolling release like Arch?
>>
>>61784735
wow you're so cool

>>61783749
Fuck off kevin

Go to sleep, Kevin

>>61783749
Hi Kevin 
>>
>>61787583
It's a stable bleeding edge.
>>
Is it a better meme than arch?
>>
>>61788348
A much better meme. You'll get called Kevin no matter what.

Its past your bedtime, Kevin
>>
>>61783749
Yeah, haven't had to tweak anything since installing it. It's my favorite distro.
>>
i just installed lubuntu. not bad to start with either.
>>
>>61783749

no, fedora is

i remember installing solus and the open source graphics driver didn't come installed. i tried to install it and found no way to install it

went back to using fedora
>>
>>61783749
Solus is dumb.

GNOME has addons that do what Budgie does, but better. No awkward sidebar horseshit. And they added ANOTHER package manager to an already crowded market.

Either contribute to better projects or go away.
>>
>>61792531
>Fedora
Have fun with your proprietary driver installation
>>
>>61783749
Fuck yeah, literally just werkz OTB and looks great at the same time. No ricing or fucking around required.
