LINUX COME HERE

I'm still a novice and am looking for a distro to download on my Macbook Air early-2014. The Mac has decent hardware, but is nothing too fancy. Now that I'm moving abroad, I will use the computer for education purposes, in addition to surfing the internet and playing low-spec indie games. Obviously in my case a GNOME desktop isn't ideal because it's really resource heavy (I'm looking at you, Fedora and Ubuntu). Mint is me no likey and Manjaro refuses to detect my internet drivers. Ubuntu MATE was somewhat nice, but GNOME 2 is really old and I'm not sure how far customization would get me. Same with any other lightweight Ubuntu derivative tbh. There're plenty of more distros that I've tried out, and at this point I feel like I'm bingeing from one distro to another, looking for the "perfect" one while there isn't one. It's like switching between 10 different resolutions in cs because you're feeling off lol What distro would you recommend in this case? Ty in advansso

u know u can just change the desktop right

yes
2019-08-15 11:09
Arch is awesome but hard for novice. DE isnt depend on distro, GNOME and KDE usually avaliable. KDE is much better than GNOME imo.
2019-08-15 11:20
hmm, is it really superior to all other distros like everyone makes it out to be? or is it the old "im vegan" trend? just curious
2019-08-15 11:14
Depends on what you need. Arch is high customized system, it can be simple as running on embed device or complex and powerful for desktop or server.
2019-08-15 11:30
Open Mandriva. I was about to throw my laptop over the window with that shit.
2019-08-15 11:34
Care to elaborate?
2019-08-15 12:49
I have no knowlegde sry, but if you are novice not even think about this shit

Manjaro xfce
2019-08-15 11:35
It is good? I'm using ubuntu in my work, and mint in home, but I consider to install arch/manjaro. I have i5 4gen, 8gb of memory, so I need something light and don't care about superior GUI

use it ffs xfce is as light it will get without you missing out on features
2019-08-15 16:48
+1 go with this one, been using manjaro with xfce for a bit of time and its great to have as a home OS. Arch's rolling release will provide you with the latest software. manjaro's xfce also comes already pretty nicely customized out of the box, so in my case some minor changes were enough, and is the best looking lightweight DE along with mate but with more room for customization
2019-08-15 11:44
Manjaro very slick mens, I loved XFCE but it wont recognize my drivers so I have to use one of those external wireless connection providers lol
2019-08-15 12:36
+1 ubuntu is good too, but mint xfce is the closest to windows
2019-08-15 15:48
Go mint with cinammon or xfce
2019-08-15 11:37
Mint me no like((

arch + i3 best i3 is just the window manager without most DE features, so pretty much as light as it gets. Use cli to configure everything, instead of DE features.
2019-08-15 11:50
Arch hard mens)) I, too, wanna flex on plebs with my i3 Arch

Ubuntu budgie, looks really nice and not as resource heavy as gnome. Everything is exact same as ubuntu, just a different desktop environment
2019-08-15 11:49

Just get some debian based distro with xfce or MATE desktop if you don't wanna use GNOME.
2019-08-15 12:04
Hmm, what about Debian 10 itself? Is it cool?

You will use the computer for education purposes, in addition to surfing the internet, in this cases ok, but play low-spec indie games in Linux? I think this kind of games does not have support for Linux or am I wrong?
2019-08-15 16:06
With Steam Play you can play any Steam game on Linux AFAIK It wouldn't provide the best performance, but hey, anything is better for gaming than macOS

This Steam Play works with macOS system? If does, why don't you keep you MacOS? I think you will get a better performance than a Linux.
2019-08-15 17:05
Not sure whether it works, but I'm not a big fan of macOS either way. I'm not the biggest fan

I had used Ubuntu MATE for 2 months as my basic OS back in 2017 and I still think it's pretty good OS, maybe you should try it? inb4 I switched back to windows cuz of DX12, OpenGL sucks edit: it has a very good customization, you can make it look pretty similar to windows in terms of desktop, taskbars etc.
2019-08-15 17:04
I was highly discouraged from using Ubuntu MATE because of GNOME 2 and I thought it'd limit my customization. I might give it another try, thanks!
2019-08-15 17:08
xD Don't use Linux.

Go with a distro with XFCE, it's not resource heavy, and pretty customizable. If you're sorta new with Linux distros, I'd recommend going with Ubuntu. If you're mentally challenged, you could go with a rolling release distro, such as Arch, and having a headache not only with its install, as well as with dependencies breaking all the fucking time.
2019-08-15 23:27
lol I always thought XFCE wasn't much customizable. Thanks bud, I will give it a shot. Although I first wanna see what Arch is like (if i can) ill also install xfce spin fedora just in case x)
