It is no secret that my favorite distro for Linux after much trial and error, landed on Arch Linux.
I found I prefer the rolling release model vs major version upgrades and the AUR (Arch User Repository) is incredible for finding and installing packages. That being said, it’s biggest win is the Arch Wiki. I find however, that no matter how often that is repeated in the Arch circles, you still find forums full of solutions that the Arch Wiki covers better, or even conflict the Wiki.
While all my personal systems are exclusively running Linux, as is the nature of working in most IT Support roles, the base of my shared company workstation in the office is Windows 10.
After a bunch of article reading, research and testing, this is a quick summary of what I use to have what has worked for me as a fully functioning i3 graphical desktop, running via WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) on a functioning X-Server. For me at least, I’ve found it works much better than when I tried to have a VM running on the workstation, as it’s far from new or high performance.
