Well, I got Arch installed on my Dell E6400. Okay fine, I admit. I did eventually give up doing it the manual way and went with the Revenge Installer instead. Makes things way easier! I was messing with it for 2 nights and finally just ended up going the easy route (I have successfully installed it on VirtualBox using the manual method though). Was just not wanting to install properly at all, so cheating works right? I tried at least.
So my E6400 has 4GB of RAM and a core 2 duo. I decided to give Deepin desktop environment a go. Its a beautiful environment as well. Its simple, yet elegant.
Arch seems to be extremely quick while doing basic stuff and browsing the web. No hangups, so no complaints from me.
I would like to update my gaming laptop to Arch as well since its still running Ubuntu 14.04, but it will be a bit of a hassle since I have games installed on there. Gotta save all that data first. Anyway, if anyone is wanting to try Arch but doesn't want to deal with the install hassle, give the revenge installer a try. Linked above.
