If you are curious, I purchase this new system, as base only, and then I added M.2 NVME Samsung 960 EVO for the OS drive, left the stock 1TB 7200 RPM drive for storage, and replace the stock Samsung 8GB of RAM with Corsair Vengeance, 16GB Dual channel, Dual sided.
So, during my hiatus, I was able to replace an ever aging Macbook Pro, with an old Core2Duo processor. 😊 The system replacing it, is a HP Envy x360, with the Ryzen 2500u processor. Minor draw back, the only linux kernel that supports this processor, in still in mainline/testing. So, I am relegated to using Windows 10, and running a VM, instead of booting my distro of choice on bare metal.....
Just a bit to share, since I have been on a hiatus from Mastodon, while RL has been kind of busy for me.
The ArchLABS distro that I continue to support continues to grow, at a fairly strong rate. We have climbed over 20 rank positions since the holiday season has past. ArchLABS now holds a respectable 44th position. No doubt this is due to a wonderful support from all who work on the ArchLABS project and the exceptional users in the Linux community. 😎
Once again, I invite you all to come and checkout ArchLabs. Especially if you love OpenBox or i3. A lot of hard work went into creating this distro, and it has been slowly climbing up the distrowatch charts.
To those of you that celebrate the Thanksgiving Holiday.. Happy Thanksgiving... Also, if you have followed me for a while, this is the longest time I have ever stayed on a single distro. Could this be the end of my distro hopping days. IDK..

If I forget to toot from time 2 time, it is because I have wrapped myself up in a project. Not because I am ignoring the wonderful peeps on Mastodon. I have just been dumping a good bit of time into ArchLabs, which I would encourage you guys to take a good look at.
Yesterday, I finished up a second rust script I was working on. 😌 I know it works, but I am a bit 😔, as the script has not been dummy proofed yet. So, I still have some work to do.
Do you have a Steam account / you game on Linux? Could you help out here a bit?
The developers of "Mantis Burn Racing" are still willing to port the game to Linux, with enough demand.. Sadly not there at the moment.
Gaming is one of the important factors making Linux more widely accepted. This is not an "AAA-game" by an enormous company, but why not?
