Which one I should I pick? Mangaro or Antergos. They look the same for me (preconfigured Arch).

>>65968569
Manjaro is much much better. Less garbage default DM, more DEs and WMs out of the box, and more stable than default arch while antergos is less stable than default arch.
>>
>>65968580
It's a fair analogy though. I've installed Antergos before because I didn't feel like setting up arch. I've installed Arch many times, but sometimes you just don't feel like manually doing things...
And just to shut you up before you claim I cannot install Arch, it's only a few steps-
Check network
Format drive
Mount drive
pacstrap
chroot into the new install and set shit up

It's not exactly rocket science, but honestly why wouldn't you automate the process?

I can and have installed arch. Manjaro has everything I like about arch without any of the hassle. I don't have to check news whenever I updates. I also like their kde theme a lot. I think the default one sucks and the ones online are always missing things.
>>
>>65968331
Installing arch isn't hard, configuring all the shit necessary to get a working desktop environment is

Manjaro is shit though, use Xubuntu instead
>>
>>65968706
You know, I wouldn't have any problems with that, if they didn't change the name and claim it as a standalone distribution that is based on Arch, when it's just Arch with bloat.
>>
>>65968662
How is manjaro like a car and arch like a horse? It should be arch is like a horse and manjaro a horse carrying a ton of shit.
>>
>>65968569
Antergos is basically vanilla arch. Manjaro is a lot more polished. The updates are much slower though. Antergos is as bleeding edge as arch is. Manjaro gets updates every couple of weeks except for security issues which get immediate updates.
>>

In that Arch is a backwards pos?`

Exactly, I had no problem installing arch but getting gnome working was a complete pain. The biggest problem was making sure all the necessary services were running at boot.

how the fuck is Antergos less stable than Arch

Meh, manjaro is always messing with kernel modules, no matter which kernel version I use on the architect ISO.
I wish the AUR would be used with other package managers.

I switched to kde anyway. it was easier to set up. I couldn't get the Bluetooth to load on gnome.

Antergos is a buggy piece of shit that lags like KDE on a 1990s thinkpad.

For people too retarded to install a DE or WM.
>>
>>65969392
Gentoo and Arch are totally different.
>>
>>65969464
Yeah gentoo is actual worth all the effort. Arch is the same bloated shit is the other distros it just takes longer to install.
>>
>>65968331
Switched from Arch to Manjaro.
On Arch you manually have to search how to do every single thing and occasionally I forget about the 10 steps I need to follow to have very basic functionality working on my computer that should definitely work out of the box.
It's a cool distro to learn more about how a linux based OS works, but that's it. Massive waste of time for anything else. Manjaro is also more stable. On arch it was pretty common for me to have an important package having certain bugs.
>>
>>65969644
Is Gentoo faster than Arch?
>>
>>65969683
It can be pretty snappy if you know what you're doing when you install it.

Arch dev community is literally retarded as well

funny how gentoo faggots in last days when they realized gentoo's vision of compiling shit from source is deprecated pushed back to one solid argument ""le you can't install it le xD". I see arch faggots do the same, but what is worse, I can't tell which of those two distros are more useless if gentoo or arch.
>>
>>65969644
It takes less than 10 minutes to install Arch.
>>
>>65970619
Why do you think Xfce4 is the best for productivity?
>>
>>65969392
had to be said
>>
>>65971120
Yeah whatever dude. It's still a complete and total waste of time. It's just as bloated as every other distro. It still uses pulseaudio and systemd and the same utilities. When you install gentoo you can get any configuration you want. It's worth the effort involved. Arch is just an ego trip. it's users a bunch of cunts anyway. Gentoo and Slackware users are much better to deal with.
>>

Manjaro is for people who want shit to work. I did run pure Arch, it's not hard but it's annoying.

What was your issue? Is it that hard to identify your hardware?

Ubuntu spies on you. Why use an inferior fork rather than the original?
>>
>>65968569
Antergos is pure arch, so whatever happens in arch happens in antergos. If that's what you want then it's very good, I've not had any problems with it.

Manjaro's team audits stuff, so updates might come a little late. This adds stability, but it also makes it less secure since you have to wait for patches.
Manjaro also has more default de's and wms preconfigures.
>>
>>65971902
Becase xfce is better than Gnome
>>
>>65971972
So? Ubuntu still sucks. Why are you using it?
>>
>>65972027
I'm using it because it's noob-friendly, it's well supported and it's easy to find solutions to fix problems. What distro do you recommend?
>>
>>65972058
If you want something easy use Arch. If you want something good use Void.

>>65972095
I use LMDE2 Mate with xfce4. It's a bit bloated but pretty stable and requires less setup than Xubuntu.
>>
>>65972099
Maybe, but arch doesn't look like an easy-to-use distro to me.
>>
>>65972058
>>65972115
Shit, forgot to mention that it's got a great community too, which I think you will appreciate.
>>
>>65972118
What looks difficult to you about it?
>>
>>65972138
Installing Ubuntu is a piece of cake: copy the .iso on a USB drive, boot, open installation program, follow the instructions, it works.
Everything else is considered difficult by me, I'm not an advanced Linux user at all. What concerns me about Arch is that I need to configure it all by myself and the installer interface is minimal. I can't say that I'm not interested in Arch, though, since my goal is to work on a light environment on my next laptop.
>>
>>65968549
Except bare bones arch is less bloated than manjaro
>>
>>65972115
Less setup than 2-3 clicks in Xubuntu, lol.
>>
>>65972197
There's a beginners guide on the Arch wiki that walks you through every step. Once you install a DE/WM it's just as easy to configure as any distro. It's even easier because Arch is better documented than most distros.
>>
>>65969683
In theory you can get a 10% performance boost from compiling everything. In practice you probably won't notice.

I haven't noticed Gentoo being too much faster than Arch on my T430.
>>
>>65972259
I've been reading Arch Wiki, it looks like it's really well made. What I want to know is how faster is Arch than Xubuntu or Lubuntu. Does it boot faster too? Also can I install just i3 as both WM and DE on Arch?

>>65972115
Thank you, but I'd rather stay with Xubuntu, since I'm used to it.
>>
>>65972118
It isn't ignore that dumbass. I mean it's fine once you actual install it but you're going to be lost if you aren't familiar with the terminal. If Ubuntu works for you keep using Ubuntu there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It has lots of software and great security.
>>
>>65972259
Wiki is a meme. It's useless without a video guide.
>>
>>65972375
Yeah, I know it's not that easy. I'm not the kind of guy that uses the terminal for every operation, so a simple UI is important to me. I've never had problems with Xubuntu to be honest, even though I'd like to run a minimal installation of it in the future: I'd like to install only the few programs and utilities I need.
>>
>>65972446
You can try debian then. Ubuntu is based off it so everything should be familiar. It's a lot lighter and minimal then Ubuntu. I wouldn't advise it though. Ubuntu is fine for your needs there is no reason to waste your time distro hopping.

Manjaro or xubuntu for a newfag?
>>
>>65972359
Yes, it's slightly faster than Ubuntu, but the difference is negligible. The DE is pretty irrelevant. Yeah, just install i3 and put it in your Xinit file.
