Don't understand what the hype about Elementary OS was. Used for ca. half a year, do not see any benefit.

If this is supposed to provide "usability" on a Linux kernel, then I am sorry, but in this regard it is a tremendous failure.

All tasks take long, there are all sorts of bugs, today I needed a multi-monitor setup for a presentation "real quick", dear lord was that a shitshow.

Nah, this thing is not for me.

    It's literally just desktop Ubuntu in even more shit

    Multi-monitor stuff works pretty well in anything not Ubuntu-based.

    So pure Debian, Manjaro (or even pure Arch if you really want to), etc.

    Did they at least fix the graphical glitches by now that occur when you connect an external screen/projector or hibernate and wake up the PC?

    I tried 2 different versions of eOS and after the second one still had all the bugs I had before I gave up on it.

    That's why you need to way just a little bit more for the HURD it will even solve world hunger.
    Or you can, you know use an OS that is Desktop-oriented from the ground like Binbows or Macn'cheeseOS. Or at least something that is not Ubuntu in yet another clowns disguise

    Elementary OS looked for me too much like Mac OS. Thus I expected it to be shit. Thanks for your confirmation!

    @kescherRant idk about debian, but on arch I usually just plug in the monitor and configure it with arandr, so almost plug&play

    @Benedikt I have to say that although mac os is a pretty shitty os, the external monitor support is pretty much as good as it can get (from my experience)

    I mean, I tried eOS with little expectations, but my UX with this is pretty bad. Shit is derpy af. The system is just experimental, so now I am thinking about going the other direction and set up Arch.

    Dunno. The Arch-snob culture kinda turned me off of it, but it seems like something I might enjoy. *shrug*

    @deadlyRants Not from what I've seen. My second monitor started derping once connected and the OS went batshit crazy when I attempted to fullscreen stuff on secondary.

    Well, to be honest, I use Elementary OS for about 3 to 4 years now and I am pretty pleased with it.
    Its not slow for me, but I run it on a SSD with the home dir on a HDD.
    About the UI, I am more of a terminal guy, so am not using it so much. But it looks modern and clean, which can't be said of all Linux distro's.

    Multi-monitor is working fine for me btw, so maybe its more of an driver issue..

    @kescherRant Running Kubuntu with 6 screens ;)

    @Maer don't forget to add "I use arch btw" to everything when you switch - it's a mandatory system requirement without whitch the system bricks itself.
