Update: been using Linux Mint 21 for a few days now and it’s glorious! I’m never going back to Arch again, as long as my hardware is old enough for the LTS kernels.
There are So. Many. Little. Things. that work so much better now. I hadn’t even noticed how many papercuts I picked with Arch until I switched to a desktop environment that was carefully designed by someone who knows what they’re doing.
@cuchaz honestly, i just like cinnamon (their main desktop environment), I really find my taste to be arch Linux, mostly because everything you could ever want is goanna be pretty easily installable. Installing stuff on Debian systems to really always be a hassle.
@fbievan I get the appeal of Arch. I really do. The idea that: anything is possible, you just need to configure it yourself.
The trouble is, rolling release distros are too unstable for my tastes. And I’ll never be as good at configuring an environment as someone who’s been doing it for years.
