There are only two types of Linux Users

Those who have used Arch and love it so much they must tell everyone.

Those who have not used Arch and complain that you will always know a Arch user because they will tell you.

🤣 😜

@omnipotens there are also people who've used arch, and decided not to use it any more ;)

@omnipotens
TIL Drew Devault is a myth. Does that mean he's Legendary?

@omnipotens

I'm a myth! When I started using linux as my main OS I used ubuntu for a few months then went straight to arch for around 6 months. Got tired of updates breaking my system every couple of weeks. It does not make a good software development environment.

@alexcleac
There are a few who use Arch and don't brag about it.

btw. I use Arch
@omnipotens

@wolf480pl @alexcleac na those people are a myth too lol you just bragged about it lol

@omnipotens Actually I have never really installed arch, but used manjaro and i am really happy with the package repository, nearly everything works, you don't have to copy stuff from random websites, no flatpaks, snaps etc

@NickFreeman @omnipotens So, this mythical AUR... everyone can make a package and put it in the AUR, right? There is no review process as far as I know. So isn’t it very easy to put shady or outright damaging stuff in there?

@pinguin Essentially yes. Every package is a small file with meta information and instructions on how to build the package. Sometimes it contains the actual compile process, sometimes downloading the .deb from the official site and extract it.
As an example you can see aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git

@omnipotens
🤣🤪 I've used Arch Linux, didn't brag about. I don't now.
Although looking at because of S6 init looks very interesting.
