Op here. I made it about a week. There were so many different tools that completed the same task. Instead of developing one tool, they would just release some new one. I remember sitting there reading the documentation and learning about something for hours only to find out that most people were using the new tool.
Due to the way its set up too you constantly have to debug unforseen consequences and figure out how to workaround extremely unique and poorly documented problems. Was not worth the hassle at all

Oh but I have, as I said I've experimented with GNU/Linux since 2004, even got free Ubuntu CDs from Canonical back in the day.
I try out other distros from time to time but I do it on my laptop or older PC, not on my main machine, so far I've found no compelling reason to switch full time yet.
If I'm ever going to switch it'll be to something running KDE and has more up to date packages, I don't particularly care about the package manager honestly as long as I can get all of my software.

That was exactly my experience. The final straw for me was not finding a way to persist .Xresources between reboots (to set Xft.dpi), switching to Wayland, and then needing to futz around with trying to use the emacsPgtk overlay of Emacs to stop it from being blurry. It was all a huge waste of time. Debian's been great.

I don't really remember, i distrohopped a lot.
But Fedora also was the final destination for me, it is simply perfect.
>>
>>88035858
For my desktop, first was poopOS, then Debian, Manjaro, Fedora in no particular order, and final was Arch, been on that for a while now and have no intention on switching.
For my laptop, Mint to Gentoo. Gentoo is cool and all but I don't use it enough, so I just forget all the portage tricks and come back to 50 packages that'll need a day to recompile, so I may switch to Arch and keep things consistent.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact "World of Linux," or as I refer to it, "Linux Fantasy XIV." Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather a role-playing game around which those with no accomplishments can desperately form some sort of identity. You start off with your OS in an incomplete state, then you perform easily searchable, tedious manual quests trying to piece it together into something that is barely functional for a small set of tasks. Other Linux players congratulate you on playing the game and on your level progression, giving you a real sense of accomplishment for your virtual progress.

If you thought you were getting a real OS, you just don't understand Linux.

distro hopping is literally for unemployed neets who don't understand how to use linux, I've only ever used a single distro in the past 17 years. debian. because i use netinstall you don't have to care what comes packaged with it. you just install what you want and that's it. distro hopping solved forever, how do people not understand this? i use testing but you can use stable or sid if you want to, hasn't broken for me once in that entire time. i feel bad for distro hoppers

So far, Manjaro XFCE was the most comfy distro/DE. Arch is an incredible pain to set up in terms of wifi (especially eduroam), drivers and beamer connection.
Tempted to switch to Debian XFCE, but I hate synaptic.
i3 is peak comfy and I'm too lazy to change to dwm.

I don't get what there even is to hop around.
The only difference is release schedule and which package manager the distros use.
And the usual features that all package managers offer are practically the same anyway.

So the only choice left is what release schedule is the most practical for you.

Notwithstanding more exotic outliers like Nix or even gentoo, of course.
