    So you use it in a production environment that your customer och your business is dependent on it?

    I like it because it is light, blazing fast, super customizable and surprisingly stable for being bleeding edge. Never seen anyone use it on a server though. Wonder why, seems like the minimal thing would be perfect for that?

    this is so much true my friend was ranting about arch just Today

    @epse
    because it is not reliable, when used as a server.
    For a dev enviroment or lab it is more suitable

    This is a very good question

    @Jase being able to run Arch seems to be an indication that you have a lot of pc and Linux skills. It is an inherent trait of people to want to show off their skills.

    @enchance nothing. Arch is arch. There is stuff based on arch though

    @Linux it the air of skill, for some reason installing it is still widely regarded as difficult and running it seems to make you instant l33t pr0 h8x0r 420BlazeIt

    Manjaro imho > arch. Manjaro is stable it also uses pacman and aur both are a rolling distro arch = bleeding edge. Manjaro = leading edge.
    My 2 cents

    @Triskelion Manjaro-i3 was even more unstable than Ubuntu with i3 when I tried it, but plain Arch works perfectly fine. Manjaro, Antergos, and how they all are named are just some over-engineered installers, I would never use some of these systems, and nobody else should, they are buggy as hell. But each to their own...

    @enchance You got full control 'cause you put together your own system from bare bones.

    @epse Ubuntu's a distro based on Debian. Arch is a different flavor all together! Just like you've got Puppy Linux, Ubuntu, etc. based on Debian, you've got Manjaro and (a few) others based on Arch.
