Hello linux community


I'm a somewhat long time Ubuntu Linux user who likes unity de over others, and also a gamer who, currently uses integrated graphics. my first ubuntu versions were 17.10 with gnome, and later/longer 16.04 with duelboot, eventually swapping to full linux. built my first custom pc, and was upset to know 16.04 will not install there. I wanna swap to arch if unity, or unity-like de is possible so i'll probably gonna need help with this distro hop. and not much else to say. wanna share my small Ubuntu knowledge and learn along the way.

Welcome!

Unity is dead.. replaced with Gnome3. Anything running Gnome3 will be your best bet if that's the UI/DE type you are looking for.

Distrowatch.com with an advanced search for Gnome3 should bring back a lot of results. In general, anything using systemd can run Gnome3, and anything (excluding Gentoo.. maybe another?) which does not use systemd will not run Gnome3.

Sadly it's the division they made..

Bonus: it also works irregardless of SystemD and as such is on the BSDs as well, which Gnome3 cannot do.

Hi, a warm welcome to You!

Working with Arch Linux for 8 years now I find it a distribution that can be rather rewarding. I like the bleeding edge and KISS approach and would not change. It's my daily working system.

Have fun!!!
