So what, exactly, is the "point" of using the arch distro over the other distros that do the same thing with MUCH less hassle?
We have this thread every fucking day.
You're right, no reason to use Arch.

kill yourself, OP
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.

Arch gives you the freedom to not rely on botnet software which is why it is highly praised in the professional community.
I do config in my free time and then use my computer how I like when I have work to do?
I get plenty done on arch, idk what you guys are complaining about?
No shame in being too dumb to use Arch, just switch back to Ubuntu and stop hating the actual professionals. :)
yes, but do you know how to use question marks?
some people like spending their time fucking around with their system, presents a challenge I guess. Not really for me, I stick to xubuntu. Interested in getting into Arch but don't think I have the time to sink into it.
>all those noobuntu losers
at least I KNOW how my COMPUTER actually works
wow, I can't even comprehend what's going on in your screenshot.
To me it just looks like a jumbled mess of terminals with very poor colour pallette choices, but to you it must look like the matrix.
You truly are superior, arch user <|:^)
I am not NEET and my time isn't worthless.
Must feel really bad that you couldn't even install Arch so you now resort to talking shit irrationally, trying to convince yourself that the distro is shit instead of you.
Arch does exactly what you tell it to do, but with a dumbass on command it is expected for it to break...
>If you actually know what you're doing, Ubuntu is the hassle.
The fact that people think this makes me so sad
If you're using anything other than *Ubuntu or debian in linux/gnu as a general purpose OS you need to jump off a bridge. Arch is a meme
just installed arch as my first distro took an hour or so to learn how to use the terminal and now its just a fully functioning desktop that can run everything I need how the fuck is it a timesink
>So what, exactly, is the "point" of using the arch distro over the other distros that do the same thing with MUCH less hassle?
Linux distributions like `Arch Linux` are designed to be a time sink for people not in employment, education or training to cut down on suicide rates.
Writing two lines on the terminal means you are trying to be a hipster edgelord and probably spend half of your day fixing problems
If it doesn't have a gui installing for everything it means it is too hard to use and only NEETs and neckbeards have the intelligence necessary to use it
OP probably broke his system doing some dumb shit and avoiding reading because this is america and reading is for faggots so he imagines everyone in the world must bt the same
...in the magical world of OP
>get buttblasted because all his internet friends can use an OS without trouble but lacks the necessary ability to read and use a terminal so needs to dedicate the rest of his time drawing meme images and crying for everyone to see how inept you are as you've aptly demonstrated in this thread
>Have a job
I bet you dont.
>have my own company
What company do you own? Nothing to hide, right?
>literally all I use arch for is a portable development machine, and for watching Netflix shows in bed.
More like browsing 4chan and watching netflix 18 hours a day in bed.
Why would I bother with other distros when all I need to use arch for development is a working DE, a LAMP/LEMP stack, a text editor, and a decent browser? That's literally all you need for a development environment, and Arch gives that possibility with the very minimum.
Must suck to be a *buntu cuck
Just did an install of antegros, it might just be this laptop but the DM is broke out of the box. Architect is so far the easiest way of obtaining Arch for me so far. I think I'm about to reinstall this one using that... all I wanted was to try kde4...
>thinking any decent company would trust noobuntu or debian (who's main developer was a racist coward who committed suicide) to maintain their million dollar business
There's a reason why distros like arch exist.
It's to filter out the retards and get a stable distro that doesn't break because apt-get can't resolve fucking dependencies.
tho it has nothing to do with the word "hacker"
Selinux is because its a bitch to learn and use efficiently ( mostly for my work i learned it )
Apparmor is alot easier + i use it for personal use.
Fuck all you useless unemployed niggers. I use Windows for everything from work, to games, to anime, to graphic design, to casual programming.
I am using Windows 10 and loving it especially the apps that are much better than the trash bundled in Windows 8.
Linux is for losers without a life or future.
bullshit. I have worked in my company and we use email service from our ISP. Most people use IM's and almost no one uses email as everyone has smartphones with Gmail and cloud that is easily accessible on every device without a dedicated server. most server backends that that I know of run BSD and Oracle.
no, its where Linux belongs.
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.
Then, to replace my eeepc who died, I bought a thinkpad x201 and everything went so smoothly it felt like eating pudding.
Just use what works and fit your need.
