    I guess it's done for now... It still isn't complete but I don't have time to change much atm, just want to post before I forget and change it.
    My shortcomings right now are:
    1) Anything from outside the repository is hit-or-miss, since most .debs were made to Ubuntu-based distros and I don't want to create a FrankenDebian. Although the repository is big enough, it's missing some themes like Paper and proprietary stuff like Dropbox(IIRC Ubuntu has it on their repo).
    2) The desktop icon text shadowing, but it's probably fixable.
    3) Megasync refuses to work because of some stupid dependence issue on their .deb(even though the .deb file is for Debian 9.0/testing/stretch) and Discord lacks a desktop app(which is no biggie, their website works well).
    I could complain about how only half of my Steam library is compatible with Linux, but this laptop can barely browse the web, so I don't care too much. :P

    Debian is actually pretty good, but I feel like it's not my kind of distro yet, maybe it'll change with my usage. :P Testing is surprisingly stable and allows me to keep up to date with Mesa changes. (Which are useful when running AMD hardware). I am open to suggestion on more distros to try if anyone has an idea. :P

    Desktop for GBAtemp.png

    This took me like a whole day to setup, been trying to go for a more clean and organized desktop look for a while and I think I finally got what I was after.

    Used Fences for my app groupings and Rainmeter along with the skin Origami for basically everything else, icons on the dock thingy were from a metro styled icon pack.

    This scene is just perfect, I had to take a screenshot and use it for my background.

    finally made my switch to arch. I was using Antergos before but wanted to give the pure arch install a try and so far everything seems to work. already set up my desktop how i like it but im still missing a couple of programs to download to be good. Setup is similar to my old one, just switched background and edited conky a bit

    Actually kind of just did the opposite. The laptop's Arch install was, ironically, becoming overly bloated and all I had handy was an Antergos USB from a couple months ago. Decided to go with something more minimal than my usual Cinnamon setup.
