I'm disappointed to see that Manjaro advocates proprietary software over libre software, especially when we have perfectly fine options that works great already.
What got me away from Manjaro and to Arch was the not working LVM on LUKS setup. Until then I was happy with Manjaro.
Didn't like this FreeOffice thing, too, but I mean, they have a Steam starter in the menu by default, soo...
Am happy to got myself to install #Arch and it just runs fine (until now).
But it's still a good distro, I think...
@jeybe @hund Yeah I agree it's still a good distro. Functionally it's been the best I've used. Despite not liking the FreeOffice thing I just installed it on a Surface Go for someone because I knew it would work very well there where other distros haven't.
Ultimately though, this was just a prompt for me to build on my ability to control my own setup. I really like the feeling of knowing just where everything is, piece by piece.
@hund ouch! Any recommendation for an easy Manjaro-like Arch based distro? I sometimes need it for compatibility testing
@michel_slm I've heard a lot of good things about the spiritual successor to Antergos called Endeavour OS.
Me personally would recommend Artix Linux, it's a fork of Arch Linux with either OpenRC or runit.
@hund Endeavour could be what I'm looking for (esp once they offer desktop choice). I just need a quick and easy way to get an Arch system installed and that sounds perfect. Thanks!
@michel_slm Great! :)
Is this something that is bound to happen with the lagrest distros?
In some regards I don't mind if it means linux will be used more by people.
But I'll probably switch distro because of this
@ChrisTalleras This is not the way I want more users to Linux.
If you want something similar I would recommend Artix Linux.it's based on Arch, but with either OpenRC or runit as the init system.
@hund Agree. Kind of surprising. I’ve had nothing but good experiences with LibreOffice.
