>I've used both

Arch Linux is perfect for learning what open source OSs are all about. Constant rolling updates, bleeding edge software, and the ability to configure everything exactly the way you want it. For the same reasons, it's highly unreliable. Many updates fuck your system up, and it's recommended to update in a virtual machine before applying an update to any mission-critical device. You have to be smart and experienced enough to call the shots.

Ubuntu is N00buntu. It's easy, far more reliable, but full of commercial bullshit from canonical.

CentOS is god-tier for poorfags that know linux.

because I invested the little bit of money i had and now I'm a multi-millionaire so i don't have to do shit. To keep from going crazy though, I teach English to foreign people and hit on the occasional hot single (or not so single) girls I meet up with. :-) I also do a lot of hiking for the same reason. Welcome to what it's like not to be beta.

i never used linux my entire life, wanted to try it out, downloaded ubuntu and installed on a vm, tried to use it but i coundn't stand for that awful UI

some time later, i installed debian on a vm and used like a charm, and then i began learning about ricing, and fully customized it, but my hdd failed, and i lost the virtual machine

>>601901315
I think you're over exaggerating about the "unreliable" part.
I've been using it for more than 5 years, updates don't fuck up your system, unless you're dumb enough to do big updates or upgrade important packages without reading the forums for possible issues that can always be fixed manually.

Also if you at least upgrade weekly it's a lot less likely to come into issues, but always checking the official site is what's recommended.

ubuntu is a good server OS (my server has been up for nearly 2 years straight).

but its kinda meh as a GUI OS.

But really it's like comparing Apples to Green Apples. Just use one you like.

Well, I was all about customizing my system from the start. The mouse keys kept fucking up when I would update X11 without warning from the forums. It seemed it would reset my config files to have mouse keys disabled by default. I ended up writing a script I would run whenever it was updated, and after that it worked like a charm.

That being said, you still need to be smart enough to write scripts and navigate through shells when using Arch, else it's unreliable.

I recommend it for aspiring hackers though. Great documentation

But Arch exists

And pizza doesnt?

Used both. If you are just starting out on GNU/Linux Operating Systems, Ubuntu is a great choice due to the newbie friendliness (you can also try out Linux Mint). If you know your way around a linux OS already, you can consider Arch, because its highly customizable, but be prepared to build your system from the ground up. I nowadays use Arch as my daily device. I choose it because of the great wiki and community that supports it
