Re: Anybody using Arch as their daily driver?

I want a rock solid, dependable desktop OS that doesn't need to update often, doesn't break with every update, respects my time and privacy, and doesn't install Candy Crush. I've used OpenBSD for some time but it's too much hands on for desktop use so now I'm on Debian stable. I keep a bunch of VMs for experimenting, testing and packaging including Arch. AUR is nice.

Arch doesn't really fit the use case, hence the answer is the posed question is no, for me. But I do use it to play around with new shiny things!

Arch is my daily driver and the Wiki is my Bible (although sometimes I find it difficult to understand my age ...)

Re: Anybody using Arch as their daily driver?

When I first installed and began using Arch last year, I was tripple-booting with Ubuntu and Windows. As I dived deeper and explored the Arch universe, I was logging into the other OSes less and less, until finally I barely ever logged into them any more. Once I realized that Arch was my new home, I wiped Ubuntu and Windows from my hard drive, and even installed Arch on two other hard drives (I now have three separate Arch installs across two computers, a laptop and a desktop). Arch is now indeed my daily driver, aside from having Windows in VirtualBox VMs.
