There seems to be a LOT of elitists out there quite willing to put up with bugs like that .. I can only assume it's so they can say things like "Hey look at me, I run Arch" and "Ubuntu is only for noobs" and "You're an idiot if you don't run Arch" and strut around like some kind of demented self important peacocks, I'm pretty sure they'd all be Mac elitists if they could afford it ::)

Take LinuxGT with it's user directory bookmarks still in the developers name, and screen butterflies .. nothing major or show stopping but the "Sub-Arch" crowd are still raving about it just because it's Arch based .. I just don't get it  :-\

Wanna know what I mean by screen butterflies .. wait for the "WHAT'S THAT" in this video (shortly after 7 mins in) .. I know I shouldn't but it made me laugh like an idiot :))

Now let me add I've nothing against Arch/Manjaro/LinuxGT themselves (that would be stupid, and I GREATLY admire their developers skill and hard work .. this stuff aint easy, specially when there's limited time/resources .. so minor bugs do sometimes get overlooked, and are usually quickly fixed) .. it's the elitist attitude of some of their USERS that gets to me, and how they're willing to put down anything that's not Arch when Arch (and its derivatives)  aint perfect either.


[EDIT]

I *really* need to stop letting these people (well one guy in particular) get under my skin  :-[

I don't get those kind of attitudes either.  To me, it's justa matter of taste.  Even though I often talk smack about Ubuntu/Canonical, their stuff works out of the box 99.9% of the time and will continue working during its life.  You don't have to be a newbie to like that level of stability.

I installed regular Arch a while back following the install instructions for newbies in their beginner guide to the letter, rebooted and was greeted by a Grub Rescue message.  (only OS on the computer)  I guess that makes me stupid in the eyes of those users, but I don't care.  Then there's crap like this thing with Grub in Manjaro that just ticks me off.  I don't want to use their Grub installation, I want to use the one I installed with Peppermint.  If that's not an option, don't list it as an option when I'm installing.  Crap like that just turns me against an OS.

Currently, my favorite Arch-based distro is Apricity OS.  It's pretty stable, and it's still in Beta.  Plus, it has Ice, which is never a bad thing.  ;)  It has no issues with things like dual booting with Grub installed to its / partition.  Plus, I haven't found a major issue with it that's not related to things that are in the Arch repositories and are probably issues across the board with Arch-based distros, like Wine 64-bit not working correctly.

But, those are just my thoughts, random and incoherent as they may be. :))

Hi everyone,

The Manjaronians seem to permit anyone to install and configure a different window manager (wm) -- such as JWM -- give it a trendy name and then put it in the category "community edition" -- all of which catches the attention of bloggers and even DistroWatch.com. Result: lots of free publicity.

Anything really new? Not really.  ::)

Regards,

Tread lightly: Fluxbox, JWM, i3, Openbox, awesome

Maybe we should do it too but with apps rather than DE's .. post instructions how to unpack an ISO add ONE piece of software and repack it, then have "community editions" like

Peppermint 6 LibreOffice edition
Peppermint 6 GIMP edition
Peppermint 6 Clock on the desktop edition
Peppermint 6 Red cursor edit
Peppermint 6 Black cursor edit
Peppermint 6 different wallpaper edition
Peppermint 6 Home folder symlink on the desktop edition
Peppermint 6 Freddie Frobbleknotts psychedelic smudge edition

:)

[EDIT]

I WAS KIDDING, BTW  :D
(thought I'd better add that before the requests start)

Ugh, Enlightenment.  It should not be revived.
