The simple yet profound fact that a user may install Arch once and never have to reinstall is, IMO, invaluable.

I have only badly broken Arch once in 5 months.
Thank (insert superstitious invocation here) for partimage.

An 8 minute repair works for me.

Re: Why I love Ubuntu!

Ubuntu is fantastic to get new converts but the ubuntu team team to be losing focus at the minute and making ubuntu far too slow and creaky.

I think PC linux OS is better than Ubuntu as a newbie distro.

I agree smile . What good is Ubuntu's friendliness as soon as you hit the first hitch (for a newbie it's 5 to 30 minutes after the installation)? It all too often happens in its own Ubuntu way.

For instance: what are you going to do if there's no sound on the system? Start the alsaconf script - that is, on any distro but Ubuntu. So you end up having to know more than you've bargained for.

Re: Why I love Ubuntu!

Ubuntu was the first linux OS I tried on my PC.Absolutely fell in love with it that time.! big_smile
Kept it for 3 months or so while I learnt how Linux works before I got the oh-so-common distro-hopping itch.I checked out Fedora 8, Sabayon, Mint, Mandriva, Slackware before finally settling down with Arch.Rolling release is FTW.!!


It's a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

I have always liked the idea of Slackware with Pacman.  It's like arch but for i386 smile

Slarchware?  It doesn't exactly roll trippingly off the tongue, but it's an interesting idea.

I was thinking more SlackPacked tongue

I like the idea, although it wouldn't be using pacman's full features of rolling release it would still be cool, it's a shame I wouldn't really know where to start sad

That is a great idea, and a great name. smile
