    Ubuntu? No more.

    I am now running 100% Arch Linux.

    This distribution is superb...everything I need..and everything works. I think it's the perfect distro for an experienced Linux user.

    I think I might pop in to see the release version of Hardy..but I am not as excited as I would be, tbh.

    Double post?

    Arch is great, and I may end up using it someday. (But I am not going to change a working system)

    Begone foul tempter!



    I've been wanting to try Arch for a while, but I just reinstalled Hardy...and I like it.

    Don't tempt me!

    Welcome Illidan! I made the jump from dual booting Arch / Ubuntu to Arch-only in July and have not looked back.

    I have the same umbilical cord situation with Slackware / Ubuntu which I dual boot. I am just not quite ready to delete the ubuntu partition

    I have to admit, it is very tempting to switch completely to Arch. I don't think I will, though, at least for a while. That's mainly because I find apt a little bit better than pacman.

    Apt is the worst, here's how it goes:

    1. emerge, the pac manager with Gentoo, great and easy-to-use
    2. pacman good package management requires some skills
    3. aptitude dumb, gets the job done usually, buggy, limited

    So, the bottom line on package managers is a mixed bag. I am currently using a Sabayon distro that I like very well. The reason I went for it is because I wanted to check out LVM. And since I'm not allowed to make political statements anymore on this forum...let you conscience be your guide.

    I agree, apt is the worst... it has some serious issues with for instance removing dependencies of meta packages. With portage and pacman that works just as you expect. Debian should really try to clean it up...

    I'd have to agree. I thought aptitude was cool until I started using pacman. There's no contest.
