This is real. I Used to hop distros like a mad man and I stopped hopping after installing arch and started hopping between desktop environments and window managers. Source: r/linuxmastrrrace

    Why do you use Arch ?

    You know that systemd-boot is a thing? Let's start bootloader-hopping.
    (I currently have both grub and systemd since primmarily switched to systemd, but wan't to test some custom boot entries).

    @-red I tried Antergos while hopping distro and liked PACMAN,AUR and Arch Wiki. My antergos installation broke after updating it. Then I decided to install arch step by step by following wiki to know what is happening behind the scenes. I never looked back since then(about 1 year ago)

    I'm happy with arch + dwm, but I'm using the true linux console a lot (who needs X?). Programming and typing papers is easy and for previewing pdfs I use fbpdf (using the framebuffer). Currently testing out dvtm as a terminal multiplexer. It works fine, but I need X for surfing etc. Any recommendations welcome

    @benj Well.. If a bot posted all of my rants it really is a cause for concern.

    DE:
    GNOME→XFCE→KDE→fluxbox→Cinnamon.

    @sirjofri links for surfing!!!

    @ParkCity yeah, links is great. But w3m can display images in the framebuffer. Sadly many pages today require javascript and are almost unreadable without css... Modern webpages are not built for the last century

    @jokerreturns I felt the same way about arch... it's interesting to set up and fairly easy to switch WM.. I don't have Linux as my main OS anymore but if I need some sweet sweet environment for deployments I just setup a virtual machine with Manjaro on it. I ended up liking Manjaro more than Arch in the end and pacman + AUR feels incredibly slick!

    You don't need arch to de hop.
    Any linux distribution willl do just fine

    Idk since i started using linux my first distro was Arch. Only device that run Ubuntu was my tablet due to Arch doing some real shit. Then figured it out and that runs arch too.
    GNOME ftw
