>using fedora 21 right now and enjoy it.
As a complete greenhorn with linux I like it so far a lot more than mint or ubuntu. Its the only one out of the 3 that doesn't look like complete shit right out of the box.
Like Jesus, what were they thinking with Unity?
It does, and honestly, I don't mind it. XFCE is better, but GNOME is 1000x more tolerable than unity.
I'm pretty new and from what I've observed Arch seems to be considered a distro for people who are somewhat experienced and also care about ricing, and I don't fall into either of those categories.
why Gentoo ofcourse.
why did you think it's /g/ approved?
It's also possible to remove the cancer from arch but it's not easy.
you can also block debian from installing systemd
smaller distros also may still be using sysvinit
what? I only see that while typing privacy, than clicked a checkbox and never saw it again
ok, sperglord, go play with your minimalistic tiling window manager, maybe when you'll finish ricing it you can be productive
except that ubuntu has some cool features that I use everyday and all the bloat can be uninstalled
It's not bait. Arch is fucking horrible maintained by amateurs who literally have to copy everything Fedora does to survive. If you want to run a real bleeding edge distro then run rawhide (which is where Arch gets all of its core packages from)
Red Hat's package system is horrible, same as Debian's. Modifying packages is a nightmare and there's no fucking guide for this for either of those. I just fuck packages and install to /usr/local, praying it won't bite me (I have the misfortune of working with Ubuntu and a little Cent Os at work).
I'd rather use makepkg or maybe portage.
As for bad distros, Debian and anything derived from it, especially Ubuntu and it's derivatives, because of the aforementioned build systems and plenty of other issues associated with package management.
Please explain differences between build systems on Fedora and CentOS. They're using rpms, I doubt it differs significantly. In either case, I heuristically assume it's horrible as well. I can be wrong, sure, but I won't waste my time by testing my hypothesis. At least not now. I have a job and don't have much time to fuck around.
That's not ignorance.
Ignorance would be me being informed of something and ignoring it.
That's a lack of knowledge, motivation, and most importantly, time.
Please link me to an article about rebuilding packages on Fedora. Unless I'm being trolled, in which case pleas kindly fuck off.
Should be renamed to "Lennart and Docker Obsession OS".
lol it's easy as fuck? Are you just retarded and too stupid to use a REAL build system? If arch is such a masterpiece then how come no one even uses it. Also tell my how come Archdevs never ever contribute anything to upstream.

I dunno. Arch works good for me. fast. update to date. I haven't had any breakage. but i've only been using for a littl emore than amonth. was a long time debian user. I'm not much into the neckbeard hateful type stuff though. I just do what I do.
I used arch for a long time and stopped because I couldn't stand that in every update there was some package I needed to install because new dependencies.
After two years you have hundreds of packages without knowing why and if you uninstall them you have a broken system
Thinking about installing this tonight but I've heard CentOS is a hell of a lot more polished at the cost of more bloat. (Fuck do I know, I just installed Mint about two weeks ago on a different box. This will be my first experience with YUM and .rpms)
You make the call /g/ CentOS or Fedora?
