I should jerk off too I guess
oh fuck yeah my dick is hard and I am cumming into void linux

how is arch on the same level as lfs

>>82648923
Being "easy" or "hard" is not an inherent benefit or drawback of a distribution.

>>82649064
Despite this, many will switch from mint/debian/ubuntu regardless of whether or not they actually have a good reason to.

Arch is intermediate, where the fuck is Debian? It's openSUSE not OpenSUSE.

LARPer detected.

>>82649099
Despite this, the vast majority won't, regardless of what some autists on the internet think.
>>
>>82648942
Fedora defaults are shit for a beginner:
Default Gnome.
Dnf is slow as fuck.
No Nvidia or some shitty printers and wifi chipsets drivers.
Scare software available (beginners don't know what RPMFusion is).
Dnfdragora shitfest freezing dnf operations.
Meh to irking font rendering.
Pushing constantly new tech like Pipewire (novices don't care nor are prepared to handle possible issues).
Tiny niche shit that might only be available comfortably via snaps like Anbox (this last thing is very situational but exists).

if you are a developer it's basically reversed

Arch was my first distro and i dualbooted it its not hard it just takes time unless you cant read then its hard.

Freetards actually waste their time making this shit instead of making bug reports and fixing their software

exactly. it's shit dont use it. forget you ever heard of it.

>>82648994
dont forget devuan
distro hopped for a few and every linux distro is shit except k/x/l/etc/ubuntu, fedora/rhel and debian/devuan

arch faggots gonna seethe

none of these are hardmode.

which one is the best for learning how to code and how to set up an OS
>>
>>82649985
>learning how to code
all of them have development tools in their repos.
>set up an os
define set up.
>>
>>82649985
The easiest stuff, so your favorite flavor of Ubuntu. You want the OS to not get in your way.
>>
>>82649965
Only the most tryhard of tryhards would say LFS isn't "hardmode".
>>
>>82649985
pick one that's easy to install and you like the look/feel of ootb, you'll learn how to terminal and to customize shit to your liking with time, which will apply to any distro you may use in the future
you can learn to code mostly whatever in any of them, so this shouldn't affect your choice

>>82649985
If you are a complete beginner, and don't care about having a 100% free OS, use Ubuntu or Mint.
You can learn everything you could ever want about GNU/Linux on every distribution, there is no law that states you have to use some specific snowflake distribution for this.
>>
>>82648942
click-click to install doesnt really happen on the second column ones

ctrl+c ctrl+v isn't hard.

no

>>82649147
this. I've always been salty at ubuntu for the package management crap that they have going on. The only way it's any friendlier than arch is the install. That's it
>>
>>82648973
>/threads his own post
retardation. opinion discarded
>>
>>82649103
because it's unusual. The learning curve is steep even if you are familiar with linux, and then the moment you try to do anything slightly non-trivial, it's like everything just wants to get in your way.
>>
>>82648923
/g/ will never unanimously agree on anything
>>
>>82650099
I tried Manjaro and MX and it literally does.
>>
>>82648923
Based on what?

Gentoo is easy lol

Literally Borg
>>
>>82649985
For programming and learning sysadmin there's no reason not to pick Ubuntu or Fedora(maybe centos?). Arch-based systems are purely hobbyist stuff.
>>
>>82650774
the arch-based ones are literally easier to use and maintain than ubuntu. Vanilla arch only takes more effort to install and then becomes retard-proof. Why do you people pretend anything arch is hard or time consuming?
>>
>>82649921
Arch = LGBTQ friendly
>>
>>82650950
I don't care
Ubuntu and RHEL based systems are actually used in production, workstations and servers and using them for learning is more beneficial. Arch based systems are fine for home use if you really like it.
>>
>>82650099
I use Endeavour, and its just click-click but for l33t haxors who like to use the terminal for everything. "yay -S ____" works flawlessly 99% of the time.
>>
>>82651049
>using them for learning is more beneficial
they're all the exact same crap and you know it. Theres absolutely nothing you can learn on ubuntu or whatever that you cant learn on literally any other distro aside from the package manager. The only reason the distros you mentioned are used more in production is because they update slower.
>>
No.
Arch is easy, Qubes also(no idea about Nix).
>>
>>82648923
>my first and only distro is intermediate
Feels weird.

t. openSUSE Tumbleweed Chad, never distrohopped
>>
>>82648944
sorry but NixOS took its place
