I'm running manjaro and am new to it so not sure if running snaps or flatpacks is better than AUR or something.

Manjaro has been a mixed blessing. It's forcing me to use slightly different utilities to do things, and when stuff breaks its frustrating because of the extra effort to learn where to find the log that shows what broke. I think this is ultimately good for me.

Texas won't let me buy beer until noon tomorrow. Hope I can sleep in that late! :p just kidding... mostly
