Hi Nicholas!

Never used arch before, but heard good things.
Main reason was that my HW is a focus for Manjaro.
The HW has some quirks and Manjaro have dedicated support for it. (Pinebooks
are now delivered with it.Wink
The Previous Debian build was from one guy.
He did a great job, but it was a bit too much for one person.

Anyhow ... I am currently quit happy with it.
But I am still struggling a bit with apt update versus pacman -Syu
I find it highly unintuitive.

I need to take a closer look at desktop distros.
I start to dislike Ubuntu more and more ...
But I am too lazy to look for a better alternative.
Maybe I switch to Kali on the Desktop ...
Do you also use Arch on the Desktop?
How does it compare to Ubuntu on the desktop?

On servers I use Debian, and I am very happy with it.
(I do not mind the older releases it ships with ...Wink

CU, Ricsi
