What exactly is the point of Arch anymore? Use Debian for stability and if you want up-to-date packages just use flatpak or the backports. Your underlying system will be rock solid stable and you still get modern packages, it's the best of both worlds.

Eventually, they ALL come around. They leave Arch, having learnt many useful general linux skills, looking back with fondness, but tired of constant breakage and troubleshooting. But they move forward, and to their genuine surprise, they're back home.

They're back home and Ubuntu never left. They smile at the Ubuntu installer knowing the hopping is over. And the desktop loads for the first time and they can't shake that visceral feeling that once and for all, they're home.

This, unironically. Most devs who aren't up their own ass realized years ago that Ubuntu/Debian are where the serious work gets done, lest you have years of your life to spend on configuring a meme distro like Arch.
>>
>>89941110
I agree with all of your post except for the "Ubuntu" part. Having used Linux for many, many years and maining Devuan I installed Ubuntu a few months ago to play Steam games (Since I don't want spyware like Steam on my main OS and its a much bigger pain in the ass to get it to work compared to Ubuntu) and the experience has been absolutely terrible. Ubuntu may have at one point been a good, even great distro but right now its riddled with shitty design decisions, bugs, and just generally feels like crap.
GNOME is a joke of a DE that eats up 1+ GBs of RAM at startup and has virtually no customization whatsoever. I liked its sidebar design so I re-implemented it in XFCE and it still only sits at around 500-600 MBs of RAM usage on that particular computer. Ubuntu starts you off on Wayland by default which completely cripples game performance (Such as in Minetest and SuperTuxKart) and also fucks with OBS recordings, not to mentions lots of small graphical bugs all around the OS that disappeared once I switched it to X.org. Snaps take forever to load. Firefox at startup takes 10 seconds to launch with an NVMe drive while it only takes about 1.5-2.5 seconds on Devuan. Recently, the audio in my OBS recordings got fucked up somewhere along the line and I have no idea why. Uninstalling OBS and deleting its configuration files didn't change anything.
Anything but Ubuntu is a good choice.

What did it break, if anything at all?
Is it anything relevant or he just being a drama queen?
>>
At some point you have to realize that dependencies themselves are the problem, all solutions are half-measures, the cleanest solution is having the package manager keep track of 1 older dll version, so the maintainer hold it there until the program works on the new one, but doesn't get out of date with many different dlls.

Good. I'm glad retards get filtered by Arch. The only time it broke for me the past years is the recent grub issue, otherwise, I've never had any problems. And I'm even testing some bleeding edge software.

These people break their Arch installation because of their retardation.

you are in contradiction. sure u could use a retarded wm with 60 mb of ram but what's the point? games take up 2 gigs or more of ram. browsers too go into the GB range too. you can't really say that having 8 gigs of ram is a fortune.

why do you have to shill so hard?
arched is not advanced at all and you are not smarter for using it. i have been like you, ran gentoo for years until i got a job. now i run ubuntu and i don't care about customization. i want my os to just work for the thing i do. gentoo worked too but installing and trying out new shit was a pain.
don't identify with your os or tools. making them part of your personality shows how shallow you are as a person.
i couldn't give 2 shits about linux if it were to disappear tomorrow. and i'm saying this with 15 years of experience as a linux user.

https://github.com/nextcloud-snap/nextcloud-snap/wiki/Why-Ubuntu-is-the-only-supported-distro

>What does this mean for you? If you're running snaps on non-Ubuntu distributions, be aware that in almost all cases, your snaps are at best only partially confined (e.g. seccomp filters and cgroups tend to be pretty widely available, but your kernel needs to be properly configured). Also, be aware that since snaps actually do run differently across distros, you're running the snap in a way that the maintainer almost certainly hasn't tested. The author recommends avoiding snaps entirely unless you're sure your confinement story is complete (i.e. don't run snaps on non-Ubuntu distros unless you really know what you're doing).
>>
>>89951192
>using gentoo because he identifies with muh compile
I use arch because I want a rolling release distro with a nice level of control. I want less retards on Arch if it means less retarded questions about basic usage.
No need to project your past fantasy with Gentoo to me. Sorry to hear that you wasted a lot of time compiling shit, and regretted identifying with it.

>>
>>89952260
if you'll take a break from reading only closely enough to criticize, I'm suggesting he use nix packages on arch as a stable channel for programs prone to breaking, nothing directly to do with nixos
also I'm on nixos right now, and kde has the expected amount of visual jank for an old nvidia card and no crashes or compatibility issues
so I'm not really sure what you're talking about
>>
>>89952295
why would you care how many retards don't know how to use arch? you certainly seem to know so why care about other people? why insult me with gentoo when i could literally add <insert distro name here> or even arch. would you response be the same or would you downplay whatever sistro is not arch. arch is bot such a good distro. and it DOES break. just because your unamintained dwm,dmenu and terminal apps don't break that doesn't mean anon with job that he works in and requires certain libraries and tools will have the same experience as you. every software that respects itself, either foss or proprietary has first and foremost an ubuntu .deb for the latest ubuntu LTS. ubuntu is the default distro. everyone at work is using the Ubuntu vanilla LTS. every server is running ubuntu LTS. there is 0 reason to use arch as a professional software developer lr sysadmin
