Funny thread: Ubuntu guys talking about Arch (with admiration, mainly)

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1815121

It's interesting to see how Arch and its users are viewed by others.

I like how Arch is apparently difficult to install - I'm sure even a monkey could follow the beginner's guide.

Re: Funny thread: Ubuntu guys talking about Arch (with admiration, mainly)

It's also interesting how many Archers and Gentoo users are found in non-Arch/Gentoo bbqs, while users of other distros tend to hang around in their own places.

That's probably because they used those distros before Arch..

Since I have no confidence in the viral capabilities of this joke, I will linkback myself. Google my esel.gif.

Could somebody link this back to the Ubuntu board? I want to see a crawler crawl.

Re: Funny thread: Ubuntu guys talking about Arch (with admiration, mainly)

In defense of Ubuntu, its designers and devs have done a pretty good job of accommodating users who want an easy experience with Linux. For a long time U. has been the distro I've recommended to Windows or Mac users who either have an idle interest in Linux or who otherwise wouldn't want to mount the learning curve of a hands-on distro like Arch.

For my part, I've taken the opposite course, moving recently from Slack-Gentoo-Arch to Ubuntu as my primary Linux installation. Since Ubuntu is the only distro most people are going to experience, I thought I might as well see how it works.

I'm planning to move back over to Arch after a spell, though I want to wait until the kinks are out of doing an installation on a gpt-partitioned SSD, booting via efi and using grub2.

Edit: And the best thing about the Linux tent, as everybody here knows, is that it's big enough to have Arch and Ubuntu both, along with everything in between. This kind of choice just isn't there in Windowsworld or Macland.

Well, if you expound the benefits of arch on these forums inappropriately you can try for a double strike smile.

Sadly, I found a bit of hostility toward our distribution-of-choice on that other forum when I was active there.

It makes me appreciate this forum and its strict policy against distro-bashing and trolling.

I wouldn't want to moderate that forum, its huge. Hostility towards the 'other' is common on all forums, and not all forums have rules like https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fo … ng_Systems

Or, perhaps, sometimes that's not enforced. In all the time I was an Ubuntu user and forum poster, I don't remember ever being pointed to a list of rules for the forum...

When you subscribe to the ubuntu forums you have to agree with they CoC. If you aren't a  HumancentiPad and can follow they rules, then you should be fine smile

The rules are very similar on both forums; In one phrase: `be respectful'.

For some people, including myself, installing Arch for the first time feels like a leap of faith, installing it on your only computer with just a lot of text on a paper/screen to guide you. Trusting a feeling of profoundness when you embark on this journey and seeing it fulfilled can then really feel as an accomplishment, a rewarding and even cleansing experience. For these people, the silly dreamers of this world, Arch is more than just a tool.

For others more rational, well they just installed some software on a random piece of hardware, nothing romantic about that.

ha, just found a new Arch slogan in this thread:
