If you actually know what you're doing, Ubuntu is the hassle.

There are none. Linux users are socially inept fedora-wearing neckbeards who make up for their real-life failures by wrangling with a shitty, poorly designed operating system, a fact which they like to shove in everyone's face. The moment someone criticises Linux for being the piece of shit it is, they'll tip their fedoras, call the critic things like "stupid" or "retarded", then proceed to make the excuse that Linux isn't "suited for stupid people", but is rather designed for euphoric atheists like themselves.

Sometimes things in arch 'break' (don't work as you want them to -- that thing about pacman updates ruining configs is in the past). You take some time to fix them, learn about linux and software in general, and the next time something similar happens, it takes you a very small fraction of the time it originally did to fix it. Eventually, everything is more or less working the way you want it to, and it becomes easy to debug things that don't work, and to install new software.

In Ubuntu, the same as with arch, things don't always just work (I'm assuming you try new software from time to time - if that's not the case, arch is also pretty stable). You have to google the problem out, copy stuff into the command line, solve it, but in the end you learn nothing. You have to keep doing this every single time, and you're bound to the confusing GUI menus that the developers made for you. You have to rely on the UIs developed by someone else, whether you like them or not, and you rarely get any insight into what's going on behind the scenes. If you want to do things this way, you might as well use Windows.

I tried arch on a consumer laptop and it was a bitch to configure so I eventually went back to Ubuntu.
