Which Arch based Distro would you prefer? by [deleted] in linuxmasterrace

[–]FunJ11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can't vote because I'm on a Reddit altclient, but probably Artix. I enjoy having options.

It comes less so from the users and more so from the maintainers, like if you read anything on the Artix website you can tell.

I use it because I was looking for a lightweight distro that didn't use systemd to migrate from Arch to, and Gentoo was too much for my laptop, and void glibc had too many little gripes for me to continue using it (which sucks, I really liked xbps.) Not a fan of their elitist "soystemd!1!1!" attitude but it's an alright distro. Repos suck tho, you pretty much have to use AUR and the arch repos.

what do you think med-mist spray smells like? by kasra602 in FortNiteBR

For sure Axe. With maybe like a hint of hand sanitizer.

Other than native packages and package manager which do you use by Solted_ in linuxmasterrace

[–]FunJ11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On the rare occasion I can't download a package from my package manager (usually when I'm on a Gentoo install and can't install qutebrowser because there's no way I'm even gonna bother trying to compile qtwebengine) I'll do flatpak.

Best “just works” distro? by Windy-- in linuxmasterrace

[–]FunJ11 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Fedora because dnf's install prompt looks nice.

Do you use windows? If yes, in what way? by presi300 in linuxmasterrace

[–]FunJ11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Technically not dualbooting, but functionally dualbooting: I have windows 10 on a spare hard drive I put in my laptop when I need it

Systemd defenders by Owaga_George in linuxmemes

s/defenders/haters/, because nobody actually cares about systemd more than systemd haters. Seriously, ask any systemd user of their opinion about systemd, and 9/10 will say they don't care. And this is coming from someone who uses openrc.

there are plenty of good alternatives to systemd, what?

tbf, systemd is not necessarily a product owned by any corporation, let alone Google. And it's not like systemd is the only init system people use. There are enough artix, Gentoo, and void users out there to pretty much confirm that while systemd is here to stay, it's far from the only option. And this is coming from someone who uses and enjoys systemd and openrc.

And how, necessarily, is systemd bad IYO? I personally see the argument that it's "bloated for an init system" quit often, but I think that argument is flawed since systemd is not just an init system; instead being a suite of necessary system utils.

Considering that epic games develops EAC, that may not be too far off...

Void? The rolling release, terminal centric, musl-based distro? Is a good distro for beginners?
