I love Arch because it doesn’t use non-default file paths for config files for the programs that I install. I am always confident when making a config file that it will simply work
I love Arch because its manual install process opened my eyes to the beauty and elegance of the Linux file system. I have gone from someone who didn’t care to keep their system clean or customize anything before, to someone who has a clean system management habit, but also has all kinds of cool scripts, hotkeys, and cronjobs for my use and abuse,
I love Arch because it’s bleeding edge, yet it has yet to break. Why is it so goddamn amazing? It’s like magic.
I love Arch because it’s sooo fast…did I mention it never breaks? It’s magic, I’m sure of it.
I love Arch because the community is also amazing.
I love Arch so much that I will never consider trying another distro again. Back in my .deb based days I was always jumping around. That was fun for a little bit, but now I have a clean, fast, awesome system complete with VFIO and everything else I’ll ever need.
Why do you love Arch?
‘Relying on complex tools to manage and build your system is going to hurt the end users. […] “If you try to hide the complexity of the system, you’ll end up with a more complex system”. Layers of abstraction that serve to hide internals are never a good thing. Instead, the internals should be designed in a way such that they NEED no hiding.’
