Thoughts and Thinking on EndeavourOS
Some of my thinking and ideas for EnOS will be here shortly:
#Archlinux a collaborative pirate ship?
We do collaborate with all the different Distros also are on the same boat, there is collaboration on Distros using Calamares, and we do have Collaboration with other ARCH -Based Distros, it is one of our core ideas to collaborate.
But it is true that forces could be bundled in a much more collaborative way, but as all of them mainly started and running as personal projects, and holden together a bigger Group of Developers and Maintainers would need another structure, then relay on one Persons Character only.
Working together on a bigger Project with bundled powers will need money to pay contribution time for the ones in a leading position, as it will need some full-time Developers/Leaders to hold it all together.
And yes I do think this could be possible in the future, more and more younger people will go another way on building business, something with meaning and not with the goal of maximizing profit but with the goal of doing something for the community.
Lately some green tornado happen somewhere on another Distro, a lot users screaming into EndeavourOS Forum:
For a week it was looking like a storm of Grasshoppers taking over the friendly EndeavourOS-communities living room with a lot of unfriendly and disturbing actions.. But the team of moderators was on the track, we have some conversation about what we can do to calm that down.
And “wahu” it was working! A great team of people knowing only from virtual communication start working together and bring back that positive vibe to the forum!
The reason to start EndeavourOS was exactly that a friendly welcoming community, with users from all states on Linux to help each other and having fun while doing that.
Thanks all you strangers at the Forum Moderators Group! If it stays like that i am happy do be part of that, more then before.
Friede Freude and Eierkuchen for all of you!
Our Forum at https://forum.endeavouros.com is what we are at our core, a positive vibed community with a fantastic group of moderators, and a core team behind this knitting everything together!
And sure… there is our installer, for an easy install, developed by 4 Ex-Moderators from Antergos forum… and yes we are acknowledged on some coding and on Archlinux too but we are still Rookies on what we are doing with ArchISO and calamares, it will sometimes open a rabbit hole, and on others showing a better paved road …
So question netinstall? yes we went into a rabbit hole, but we get back to what is our goal “KEEP IT SIMPLE!” and yes we simply come back out of the Rabbit Hole and back to a paved road to launch the netinstaller asap!
This will a fire-in-the-hole test:
involved shutting down the descent rocket, blowing the bolts that attached the ascent and descent stages, switching control and power to the ascent stage, and igniting the ascent rocket while still nestled to the landing stage… Source: en.wikipedia.org
We do endeavour for you!
This Linux (EndeavourOS) is utterly unapologetic in catering to technology hobbyists, enthusiasts, and power users. It’s for the amateurs, in that best and most original sense of the word—those who love what they do. Awesome. So isn’t Endeavour the perfect name?

Development testing a new ISO which can boot on Nvidia propritary Drivers or Nouveau (OpenSource) from the same ISO!
So that users with very new Nvidia GPU’s can use Nvidia boot option to be able to boot, and also older GPU’s (legacy Nvidia) will be able to boot.
