One of the reasons I've stuck with Arch for so long is that sense of relief & satisfaction when you get an "Aha!" moment and manage to solve a problem.

For example, I've been struggling to resolve a ".local" address on my home network & tried everything.

Today I figured out it was the permissions for my nsswitch.conf file that were somehow screwed up. Fixed it by running the following:

$ sudo chmod 644 /etc/nsswitch.conf

That's the beauty of Linux. It caters to tinkerers, developers, home users and everyone else.

I love for its stability. I love for its flexibility. I love for its approachability.

I love for its mix of cutting edge technologies and stability. I love for its stable Plasma goodness and community.

And there's a million other Linux distros out there, each of them with something unique that caters for a certain user or group.

It's an awesome time to be a Linux user!
