I installed Arch for the first time in 2013 on my Lenovo Thinkpad T500 and an Acer Timeline 1810T.
Previously, I had some experience with Ubuntu and Debian. But I wanted more up-to-date software and I'm interested in new trends in the Linux world. I like the KISS principle of Arch Linux: install only what is neccessary, learn how to configure stuff and how it fits together.

Personal notes / TO DOs
Late christmas present: a new PC system :-)
- Intel NUC5i5RYH kit
- 2x 8GB RAM
- 256 GB M.2 SSD (Samsung)
- 2x 24" TFT (Eizo EV2455-BK FlexScan)
Install ArchLinux on new NUC. Overall goal: try do avoid legacy technology.
Try to use
- UEFI boot
- GPT partitions
- EFISTUB boot (Intel's UEFI implementation seems quit useful)
