The new machine

My current laptop is a Lenovo Ideapad 5-15ARE05. It is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor, 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD. It was my first computer with an Ryzen processor and it works very well, it’s hard to find any defects in it. It was also very cheap (~570 € without OS) when I bought it in spring 2020. The laptop now has Arch Linux in dual boot with Windows 10, that I sadly use for work.

Hello, World!

Hello, World! I’m Marco and this is my new (and also the first) blog! I tried, more than once, to start blogs in the past, but I never found the motivations, or maybe contents themselves. This time I’ve got something to write about and I’ll do my best to be constant (famous last words 😅). So, the main topic of this blog will be my new adventure in GNU/Linux. I’m not new to the GNU/Linux world, I’ve been using it from 2010 if I remember well.
