Why Arch

>rolling release
Everything is fresh and when I read some news about new kernel it is on my machine within few weeks. When theres new version of whatever application, its extremely fast in repos.

>AUR
The huge community driven repository that arch has - https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/
It feels like what was promised when I switched to linux, but has not been delivered in other distros. When I read about something, I can find it on AUR, when I see someone mention a new project, theres very likely a git package on AUR of it. It's incredible and makes arch feel much more comfortable than dicking around with google and PPA on buntu distros and such.

>ease of customizability
Of course you can play with any distro and switch stuff around, but arch is build from the ground up and maintained in the spirit that you get to choose your combination of packages, and if you want i3 on top of KDE with custom kernel running, it is absolutely prepared to guide you and deliver that. You have this ease of switching between DE/WM without leaving your distro in any way.
>>
>>52313786
>the community
When I was choosing distros and was hopping around my most important requirement was that it has to have larger active community to have somewhere to turn for news and help, and feel like project is moving and living. Arch community goes beyond this. Its incredibly vibrant. Even some programs I use like Deadbeef or Bomi seems to originate on arch forums.

>clean packages
I dislike modified packages that you sometimes get in other distros, some can be of interest, like opensuse firefox-KDE has better file picker dialog(btw its on AUR). But generally I really like having packages to be vanilla without modifications. You know what you are getting and wont get some surprises, making you wonder why something is different.

>using it provides knowledge
I've been on linux almost a year, on arch 6 months, I feel that if I would stay on mint/opensuse that I was on first part of my linux experience, I would learn a lot less. Maybe this knowledge is virtue out of necessity, but in the end it still knowledge.
>>
Fedora probably.

It'd be redhat if i had the money for license and actually needed the stability and long term support of it.

that bleeding-edge stuff is exactly why I don't run Arch, or any of the other distros like it. Sooner or later, shit breaks. More than nine out of ten times, version x + 1 of the kernel or any other package doesn't have anything in it that I'm dying to have over version x. Debian stable for me

I love Arch and everything it stands for, to be honest. It's my favourite distro.

As far as bobdistros go, I liked elementary. It's really well designed. Call it what you will, but it's got a lot of eye candy. Even if it's a OSX ripoff or whatever, it's a fantastic piece of software.

That being said, I'm leaving Linux for a while and continuing on the botnet that is Windows 10. I'm so goddamn tired of having to spend hours trying to make stuff work. Love Arch man but sometimes I just want to have screen smoothness and no screen tearing and some other goodies and it's a fucking pain in the ass. Arch in itself is remarkably stable, which surprised me a lot. It's just a really amazing OS and everyone who contributed and still contributes to it deserves praise.
Linux has great software and great people behind it and I really wish it keeps growing and getting even better and I, naively, hope that, someday, it'll blow proprietary OSes out of the fucking water but I'm taking a break.

i took a break one time man. i took a long ass break and i have to say, the added support is fucking sweet. everything just works in windows. but wheres the fun? wheres the eye candy and the beauty and the freedom? you cant have the peace of mind that linux gives while your on windows unless you never connect it to any network ever, including the internet. its kind of scary to me, i never really do anything in it that can put me at risk. i play games on windows and thats about it, otherwise im dualbooting with antergos (im this fag >>52314835) and its just fucking perfect for me

Debian stable's packages are really old, as in not being able to install something you want because the dependencies are too old and then you end up compiling everything yourself and it's basically Gentoo but not automated or managed.

I use Fedora. I like that Fedora sorta strikes a balance between stability and bleeding-edge software (newer than Debian Stable, but not as new as Arch).

But, I've used Ubuntu (pre-Unity), openSUSE, Antergos, and Arch (if using Architect counts) in the past.

Ubuntu is the only decent usable OS. Unity + Compiz outperforms any other combination of DE/Compositor. It has the best audio/video playback by default without any tweaking to remove screen tearing and suffering from low volume problems. Games run better on Ubuntu than any other distro I have tried including Xubuntu.

Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity 8 / Mir will destroy all other distros and finally the Linux ecosystem can be consolidated and get behind one proper project. Ubuntu is the only distro to have gained normie acceptance and is now the face of Linux worldwide.
