This a million times over. I have no problem with arch but I'm trying to maintain a 3.5+ GPA in engineering. Not trying to fit in with a bunch of elitist operating system snobs.

When I'm comfy and have free time I'll surely work on the grandest of Arch installs because I thought it was great fun. But right now I just need to get the job done. Ubuntu is fine. Gnome is comfy. All the cushion of Fedora without the instability.

>>52892358
Exactly. Ubuntu is perfect for it's stability, but I genuinely don't don't experience instability on Arch or ubuntu, but Ubuntu has less of a chance to break and requires little to no maintenance. I don't even use Arch to be elitist. Sure I can say I use arch, but it's relatively easy to install and use. Frankly, I don't even know why people hate on other operating systems. Do I like Windows? No. Do I hate it? No. It's just not for me. It is great for people who don't know much about computers though. It's just sometimes people forget that they're talking to people on this board. And yes, the occasional shit post is fine, I find them funny as they poke fun and contain satire, but sometimes people go too far and it becomes clear it's not a shit post.

>>
>>52892435
>>52892406
That's enough out of you.

>>52892445
My Arch install was unstable IMO. I installed everything, configured everything myself and ran it for everything I needed including development and VM. Worked great. But maintenance, keeping packages up to date, installing new software and general use has a much larger risk to make it unstable. A chance that I can't afford to take when I am a broke college kid working with what he has. I can't afford to not have a working computer for a night at a top 25 school in CE/Math double major.

My head is in the books 24/7.

Yes it does, when you install any new display manager or desktop environment it is added to the little menu in gdm or lightdm.

>>52892655
Eh. I'm in a committed relationship with a girl in a neighboring college. Been on and off for 4 years with her but she's never been unfaithful and she's a mid tier QT. "Wifey material".

But yeah the girls are good eye candy. Majority of them are whores though for sure. I'm more worried about getting a great job after school. I'd love to make money while contributing to FOSS but that doesn't seem likely. What are you thinking about going for?

I actually have my first date ever with this girl in my school district (i got accepted into a charter school, she goes to public) and she's a mid tier qt too. I'm in Comptia A+ 801/802 certification and Android app development, but in my future, I want to do programming and be a SysAdmin. So I need to take some networking classes too. And there's 5 jobs for my field in a 10 mile radius, and I live in a smallish town.

So you think you're a tough guy installing Arch? Big fucking deal; it's hard to fuck up if you RTFM. Just get Mint.
>>
>>52892744
I mastered 801/802 but never got the certificate. That's what my high school offered. I worked with my teachers and ended up teaching freshmen and software IT/Data processing. I ended up changing the curriculum to C# in lue of the old VB. Did everything but grading. Worked with multiple 15,000 robots. Went to Boston for one on one seminars with professors from Notre Dame, MIT and Harvard. We were using the robots to help communicate and interact with kids with Autism. It's a shame I left my school for online school.

Just never stop going for what you want to do. I admittedly dropped out and got my GED and I'm still moving up the ladder, bro. I feel into a deep depression and I'm still working through it. I'm excited about where my life might lead me after this.

>>52892790
Truu. She has a great personality. She's getting more comfortable around me. Likes games and wants to learn about tech but doesn't have the time right now. Hoping it lasts a long time if not forever.

New computer, want to setup Arch. Have been using it for several years and have gone through the installation several times on different machines. I really don't care for doing it again. I know how to use it. I am assuming Manjaro is inferior because it does not use the Arch repos.
