The one thing that's rarely mentioned is update size. My Arch install is fairly conservative. I have a small and basic set of installed packages. My update size is around 300Mb once a week. That's over 1.2GB every month. Now, for my 1.2Gb I have a bleeding edge OS and up to the minute installed packages. That's awesome. However, >14Gb of updates a year, it's something some potential users may want to factor in… that aspect is not often mentioned.

Haha, yeah right, I did the step by step official guide of Arch. I did another Third Party installation guide which is was easier instead of the Arch Wiki which it was for me a clickable inception place, crazy as hell. Even after a few hours, I found myself on the same place, not even typing a miserable command after a few hours reading the wiki and I was, why am I installing Arch anyway? haha Debian now.

I watched ur video about 2 weeks ago .. now I'm on Arch Linux. It's super true … this is the only linux I need/want … rolling release is just awesome. I can just build it the way I want. The tedious installation process is really worth it; but once we get used to it .. it's easy. The wiki is just awesome. Thanks Derek for making me a convert. Proud to be an Arch user 🙂

I use xautolock to automatically lock and suspend my arch installation with i3wm. When I don't reboot the system for about 24 hours, xautolock stops working. After reboot it again start working fine. Same thing happens with some other programs too. I have tried reinstalling xautolock but it doesn't work. reboot is the only option for making them functional, which I don't want. Can anyone give me a fix for this? How can I have my xautolock working fine for many days without rebooting? I don't like rebooting. Any helpful suggestion is welcome. Kindly reply. Thankyou.

The one reason I like Arch and it's derivatives: Pacman is so fast.
I come from Fedora, and dnf is so slow by comparison. The rpm format is great tho, because you can add as many repos as you want, and even make your own.

Everyone seems to say that arch is the best in terms of performance and gaming. But i find that to be false, arch seems to be incompatible with steam and it tends to freeze alot.

If #1 is the thing you're after, then Arch is not the right way. Gentoo is the right choice.
If you think #2 pacman is awesome you're wrong, it's not straight forward nor intuitive. Best package manager is dnf. The worst is apt.
#3, unrivaled software availability. Find me gcc 4.7 and clang 3.8. In fact, they are not in AUR. You will find them only in archives, and it will be an impossible task to install everything that is needed in order to use them properly. But they are needed for CUDA 8.0. Older NVIDIA graphics. Best software availability bar none is debian based systems, Ubuntu.
#4. So is FreeBSD wiki an incredible resource. Who cares.
#5. Rolling release means you get to fck around with your operating system a lot, because things do break often.

Whatever works on your hardware should be ran. Arch is good, so long as you don't need CUDA for older graphics card, otherwise then it's a pain the ass. Fedora has best package manager, but it is not stable by a long shot, and its forums are full of newbies. Ubuntu LTS is ideal in most situations. FreeBSD beats all Linux in stability, so long as you can run it on your hardware.

Less typing?
sudo pacman -Syu = 16 chars (really it's 17 because of the Shift for "S")
sudo dnf update = 15 chars
😛
And I would probably forget the "-Syu" and have to look it up

Why not to choose Arch linux:
1- You build your system, and eventually your system will be very similar (if not exact) to any other distro!
2- pacman is not awesome! does any one have tried zypper before saying pacman is awesome? try type pacman –help in the terminal the only clear thing you would see from the output is -V version, where the rest options are non-sense for a package manager, what sync is for? install?
3- Software availability! update and break your system
4- Arch wiki: the first page you probably would read is the Arch Installation guide page, it is not descriptive at all. People still ask what is the difference between pacman and pacstrap. No good wiki tells you whether you need to install network manager for the target system or wtf is going to happen if you finish installation and reboot the system. You need to try and error until you get your installation right, no wonder why kids just spam the "BTW I use arch" everywhere after they install it haha
5- It is the bleeding edge of rolling release, opensuse on the other hand, you got new packages a little bit late (couple weeks) but nothing breaks in your system! Arch is a good distro but it is not comparable with either debian or opensuse.

Honestly I have distro hopped a lot, but I ultimately chose Arch because of the wiki and the forums. That is definitely the best documentation I have ever seen for any piece of software.

If I ever had a complaint about Arch/Gentoo.. it’s just setup time. Outside of that that.. they are custom Linux OS’s.

I love arch too but be honest, the AUR repo is too risky !!! You can find everything right but everything means really everything (bad things too). Check the “pkgbuild” before installing any software or compile it yourself (from source). If you find something strange, report it to the community as fast as possible and peace be upon your computers !

I've installed my Arch in 2015 and it's still working, no need to change my distro. Even if you cannot find something in repos/AUR, you can create a PKGBUILD file on your own. It's not very difficult to write a PKGBUILD or to modify an existing one, makepkg will handle build process and create a "tar.xz" package for pacman. Everything is in the WIKI, there's usually no need to use forums at all. If you have a problem with Arch, WIKI and Google are completely enough for you to fix anything.

This video appeared in youtube's recommended videos today on 30-Jan-20, I took a look at it and at minute 8:00 were you're talking about easy to install Arch based distros, when I saw Antergos on the list I said "WTF" Antergos is dead dude, why you put it there on the list? Then I realized this video was released on July 2018 😀

Arch Linux is probably a really nice distro for a laptop, but when it comes to playing games and vm's etc, I'm still not sure what I want to use just yet. I am going to test Arch on my Raspberry Pi 4 though. When I started using Linux, I actually went with Slackware, so I'm not that afraid to fudge it up, I did also try out gentoo, or rather tried to install it for weeks on end, I didn't really know how to do it even when I had the 100 page manual in my hands. haha

1. You build the system yourself. Gentoo is a better option.
2. Pacman is awesome. Pacman is no better than other package managers.
3. Unrivaled software availability. Compared to what exactly, RPM based distros? Debian? Windows?
4. The Arch wiki is an incredible resource. This is the only point that actually makes sense.
5. Rolling release means no upgrade… Other distros have rolling releases. Gentoo IMO is actually a better example than Arch.
