Just wanted to pop in and introduce myself. I'm a relatively new user to Solus, just been checking it out on a Live USB. I'm amazed at how incredibly snappy it is on my older desktop.
I'm a recently graduated mechanical engineer and have been using Linux on and off for the past 4 years, so by no means am I out of the "beginner" realm. I've tried Ubuntu, and just hated it. It was not snappy, it had way too much stuff that I'd never use, and I just wasn't happy. Lubuntu was okay, but I really fell in love with #!. Unfortunately support for #! has ended, and thus, so did my usage of Linux. I got a raspberryPi recently and that re-kindled my affection for Linux, and I heard about Solus through r/linux. I thought I'd give it a try and so far, it's amazing!
You'll probably find me lurking around the forums and IRC chat, and occasionally asking ridiculous questions.
Have a great day!
