ITT we rank distros based on overall difficulty.
I'll start: Arch 7/10
Request for Gentoo.
any of them are difficult, well actually the must difficult its all ubuntu based because where created for stupid people and it is a pain in the ass to remove all the shit creators put in there and tried to use as a generic well designed distribution.
Literally as easy as it gets once you installed this shit
Even the installation is straight forward
Slackware should be 8/10
If arch is 7/10, then so is Gentoo. The installation is almost exactly the same. One big difference is that you get to configure your kernel when installing Gentoo, but this can be mostly skipped using genkernel
I'm getting into Linux only now. What differentiates the different Ubuntu distros? Which is the most beginner friendly. I'm running Ubuntu now, but I want to know what is different about the others.
