CONFIRMED ONCE AGAIN
>being surprised at all
but then again having a critical security flaw doesn't interfere with putting animepedoshit on your wallpaper.
You also seem to forget that arch users rarely do anything productive on their computer, so even when exploited they're not big use to the exploiter
you'd think a distro praised as "BLEEDING EDGE" and only for the "knowledgeable and true Linux users" would have had this shit patched like forever ago.
What the fuck is the point of Arch if security patches are behind everyone else? Nerd Cred with other Arch users?
>wow, one bug
>holy mother fucking shit, we better abandon it guys!!!
Millions of Linux servers and PCs, 66% of Android devices vulnerable to serious 3 year old bug
A recent report from Perception Point claims that a vulnerability in the Linux kernel could affect millions of devices. Here's what you need to know.
WOW! It's actually fucking still unpatched.
What now Archfags? You enjoying babbie's first distro now?
I will always buy Ubuntu Linux™ because Linux for human beings™. Ubuntu™ also pioneers innovative new technologies like Mir™, Unity™, and the highest quality Linux distribution to ever grace computers.
Ubuntu™ also pioneers in the phone market with its latest Ubuntu Phone™ powered by a synergy of Mir™ + Unity™. With these two innovative technologies combined together creates a breathtaking phone experience. You can ensure no dropped calls. Ubuntu™ is also at the forefront in gaming with its partnership with Valve™ to bring the Steam™ platform to Linux™. When I load up my Nouveau™ open source Nvidia™ driver to power my latest Nvidia™ graphics I'm a destroyer of worlds in my games powerd by Steam™. Power to the gamers™.
Ubuntu Linux™ is also very secure. It's the most secure operating system, and Linux™ distribution on the planet. It's harden against NSA probes, tested by highly trained and experienced open source programming engineers to have ever graced this planet. With such innovative security technologies like root, selinux, iptables, snort, and grsecurity you can ensure all your sensitive data is secured and you're safe on the internet.
At this point in time there's really no reasons to consider Windows™. I tried once. It infected my pc with a plethora of viruses that it caused my pc to overheat and explode. It not only nearly burnt down my house, but the neighborhood.
It's quite clear that OPs a Windows™ shill trying to convince you to settle on something less than the optimal experience with Ubuntu Linux™. Ubuntu™ is the only real way to play games or do anything productive. We've seen that they offer incredible libraries for software developers like Storm and Juju. He is probably too poor to afford the Ubuntu Linux™ experience.
Don't be a poor gamer with bad security. Linux for human beings™ with Ubuntu Linux™
>Even Manjaro fixed the memeday vulnerability from couple days ago
It means other distros have already patched.
Cannot agree with the OP though
>kernel goes through testing
>WHY HAVEN'T YOU FIXED THE BUG YET???
>kernel doesn't go through testing
>UNSTABLE SHIT THEY DON'T EVEN TEST THEIR PACKAGES BEFORE RELEASING
Retards, can't please them either way.
If you're dying from the thought of someone exploiting a local root escalation bug, just upgrade to the testing repo, jesus.
The only people who praise Arch for that are those who have taken their first step from Ubuntu.
Arch is piss easy to install but is a fucking Jenga tower, it's just waiting to collapse.
why do people get so offended by arch? i don't use it (i lack the knowledge), but it sounds like a cool idea ,to building your own system from scratch, by hand. kinda like building your own house....
Installed Arch with Openbox. Nice and fast. It's all ok and good documented until you want to do some special stuff. Then it's hours upon hours of troubleshooting.
Internet sharing with desktop, can't get it to work. Wiki manual doesn't help at all. One click in Ubuntu/Mint.
Spdif through usb audio card? Can't get it to work. Arch wiki doesn't help. In Mint/Ubuntu it's one gui click and one alsamixer option.
I get the feeling the timesink os meme is more than accurate.
Yep, horrible hardware support without lots of tweaking, especially audio. I can see the appeal but it really started to feel like a hassle when things broke and I needed to get work done. People just like to brag about their 'real' linux distro and rice it up like a middle schooler.
It takes literally 5 seconds to write a .conf that gets spdif audio working through my firewire card. Fucking firewire. And thats on any distro ever - BSD's too.
Stop blaming your failures on the software you "use".
I'm migrating for security reasons (this was the last of many straws) but if your system is breaking all the time, it's more than likely your fault.
The distro isn't to "learn". This is like learning how simulated AI works by playing Arma and bragging about how it's harder than Call of Duty.
It's very befitting of Linux in general. This is what sloppy code, and relying on third party code in your base system gets you. This is what considering security a non-issue, for losers, as Linus Torvalds does, will get you. Better get used to it, because systemd is paving the way for Linux to be as bloated and riddled with security flaws as Windows, if it's not already there. Using Linux, should be considered harmful.
You know you can set up the same desktop environment in arch if you're too retarded for window managers? Jesus fuck these 14 yo spergs
>lemme install arch, I'm a leet ricer haxor
>can't do anything because no linux knowledge whatsoever
>fucking timesink os
