Why does /g/ consider Arch as good, if it takes fucking ages to install and you have to fix that shit every now and then?
I run ubuntu on muh laptop now for about 4 years. Never had any serious problems.
Install takes fucking less than 20 minutes and everything just werks. How is this considered to be bad?

Because it's fun to do and educational. It also imply that they know a lot since they are able to do it. So there is a certain nerd cred
I agree, I run ubuntu gnome myself, and ubuntu server on my home servers, arch is just a fucking shit meme that takes ages to install, gives 0.5% extra performance and breaks down every update
I think the appeal from Arch is the completely barebones nature of the distro, compared to Ubuntu or Debian which comes pre installed with software and desktop environments.
It's kinda like buying a prebuilt pc vs. building it yourself; it takes longer, but its a shitload more satisfying to see it work for you.
>if it takes fucking ages to install
What's your connection?
About 20 minutes for me.
Also, how often do you fucking install an OS?
>you have to fix that shit every now and then
Rarely. A good price to pay.
>I run ubuntu on muh laptop now for about 4 years. Never had any serious problems.
Well, huzzah for you I guess. Different people have different needs. I would probably kill myself if I used Ubuntu for four years.
>2.24 kg (4.9 lb)
>heavy as fuck
Lift some weights how can you feel any real difference between 4.9 lb and just air? People are too soft these days. In the millitary we lifted a gun that was twice the weight of that for hours trekking through forests actually holding the gun in our hands lifting it up to our chest. And I was one of those fat lazy fucks who had a office job while doing my compulsory millitary service (worked as a administrator at the naval academy).
I can't believe people openly say that 2.24 kg is heavy without being ashamed.
>you might be better off with Mac OS X
I bought me a macbook pro through my old work. It was acctually pretty nice and comfy for everyday werk. Just had to give it back, because I quit and in my opinion it is not really worth the money. So I won't spend shit on a macbook,.
But they are not as bad as /g/ thinks they are
This, my laptop weighs >3Kg due to the amount of jardware crammed in, i always thought it was light.
Even a fat fuck should be able to lift laptops.
There once was a 2yo kid who could hold 3Kg in front of him with his arms stretched out.
