Is Arch easy to install? Been using Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) for about 6 months already.
[QUOTE=Miskatonic;30193690]Is Arch easy to install? Been using Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) for about 6 months already.[/QUOTE] Just follow the install guide instructions and you should be fine.
[QUOTE=Miskatonic;30193690]Is Arch easy to install? Been using Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) for about 6 months already.[/QUOTE] My first time doing it and everything went smooth. Wireless was a piece of piss to setup because the kernel includes my ath9k drivers, wish I had gone with something other than KDE but I don't really want to switch now because I'll probably break everything.
[QUOTE=Miskatonic;30193690]Is Arch easy to install? Been using Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) for about 6 months already.[/QUOTE] If you're comfortable with the terminal and read the instillation guide: yes.
[QUOTE=Miskatonic;30193690]Is Arch easy to install? Been using Linux (Ubuntu/Mint) for about 6 months already.[/QUOTE] Arch is pretty piss easy to install as long as you're not afraid of typing things in.

Just install the packages, then modify your .xinitrc log out, then log back in and if you're fine with the new DE, remove the old one.

[QUOTE=Niteshifter;30210533]If you use pacman -Rs it will.[/QUOTE] Okay cheers, I'll give it a go later
[QUOTE=Sc00by22;30218503]Okay cheers, I'll give it a go later[/QUOTE] Removed KDE and installed Gnome 3, I think I've just fallen in love, it's so shiny....
I'm using Fedora now. I enjoy using Gnome 3 regardless of my prejudice against it.
got it working in natty, it's wonderful-is!

Absolutely no difference between the two except for the plant on the desktop :v:
you are mistaken sir. you're forgetting about the neat feature of having 2 items with the same name, but one has an s at the end. Software Update and Software Updates
[QUOTE=FPtje;30265042]Absolutely no difference between the two except for the plant on the desktop :v:[/QUOTE] If the first screenshot would be bigger, you'd probably see a huge difference in the font rendering. Fedora's rendering is pretty awful on the default install, but freetype-freeworld from RPMFusion changes that.

Like the style, hate chrome's skin. Care to show how the new tab looks?
I have a plugin called speed dial that overrides the new tab to behave a little like the Safari new tab. edit: Are [media] tags borked? More edit: wtf [img_thumb] too? http://i.imgur.com/a3cDK.png <-- Fuck it, there's my new tab screen. Another edit: WTF WHERE'S THE LINK RECOGNITION GONE?
Garry removed media tags once again iirc

[QUOTE=Cluckyx;30329276][img]http://i.imgur.com/zVKmE.png[/img][/QUOTE] What theme is that and how do you set it?
[QUOTE=Jawalt;30342676]What theme is that and how do you set it?[/QUOTE] I don't think that's a theme, it's just the default GNOME 3 scheme.
[QUOTE=Sc00by22;30349782]I don't think that's a theme, it's just the default GNOME 3 scheme.[/QUOTE] Well I found a Gnome 3 port of Hope on deviantart. Which is why I have the black window decorations, darkened down my context menus and shit too.
