I have been using Linux for just over 2 years, and it has been an interesting adventure. I started out using Linux Mint, right away I found it quite nice, the software center had a lot of applications available, and the GUI was great, and easy to understand and use. Then I had a problem...I couldn't get wifi to work, trying for a couple days, I had a netgear USB wifi adapter, but Mint didn't recognize it, not knowing how linux worked yet, and using the terminal was a nightmare, almost gave up on linux altogether, but I was determined to make it work. Turned out there was a simple fix...use a Rosewill wifi USB receiver, Mint detected it immediately, and so internet worked now. Another problem arose, since I was a linux newb who had no clue what he was doing, I started doing things the Windows way, like downloading and installing display drivers from the brand website, big mistake. I had no idea you were supposed to find a PPA for a newer driver, and install it from the terminal, so linux would crash and burn whenever I installed drivers from an "exe" file. Gave up on Mint after this happened a few times. Tried Ubuntu, Kubuntu, ZorinOS, but found them all to be terribly unstable, and did NOT like having to reinstall the OS from scratch when a new version came out, and couldn't get the latest software updates until then either. Gave up on Ubuntu/Ubuntu derivatives. Almost gave up on Linux again until someone recommended Manjaro to me, so I though why not, I'll try it out. I had heard of Manjaro before, but since it was based on Arch Linux, I figured it was far too advanced for a stupid newbie like me. I was dead wrong, Manjaro was a dream come true, finally a version of Linux that worked exactly the way I always wanted, all software, drivers, and internal components get updated to the latest versions every couple weeks, it's a rolling distro so you never have to reinstall it, it's extremely easy to use, and looks beautiful, is very very stable, and secure, and has an amazing community behind it, and superb documentation. Also the ability to install multiple kernels. It has been 2 years, and I am still on Manjaro, and still love it. I understand Linux as a whole a LOT more now, I understand the ideas behind many distros, like Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, SUSE, Red Hat etc. I have a whole new level of understanding about how Linux works, whereas before, I couldn't even comprehend the basics. I owe a lot to linux about how operating systems work, I am not nearly as ignorant about what goes on behind the scenes. Getting to the point that I am right now with GNU/Linux takes some persistence, and being that I was a Windows user for 20 years, it was hard to get out of that Windows mentality. Now there are a lot of aspects of Linux that I like better than Windows, and now use Windows only for games that are windows only.
