Artix is the best distro /& why you should be using it

Noah Price

4 main reasons why it's the best distro
+(like arch) most (stable) up to date packages of any distro
+systemd-free, comes openrc as init
+gtkcucks BTFO, able to choose between i3/lxqt
+nice and simple gui installer
--------------------------------------------------------
why not void or gentoo?
void- stupid as fuck package manager. bloated as fuck hybrid package management. also buggy as fuck. stay clear
gentoo- not a good desktop os. compiling is something of the past and is overall just a clusterfuck to use (coming from a gentoo user for 3 years)

Thanks user, i was almost considering switching to void.

I once installed Artix and couldn't install Nvidia drivers because the package manager couldn't reconcile the version of linux-lts available from the repo with the version nvidia-lts depended on, since the driver wanted a version newer than was available in the repo. Arch is a joke, Arch package maintainers are a joke, and forking it to remove the systemdick ain't going to change those facts. I'd sooner compile Gentoo all day or wrestle with Void's barren package repo than use an Arch derivative willingly, but I think I'll stick with Slackware, thanks.

people use Gentoo to -Ofast everything
You fell for the meme. The reasons to use Gentoo are: USE flags, slots, ease of writing ebuilds, libc/init freedom and huge repos.

not using parabola
instead using artix
Now that freebsd has a CoC, you should be using freebsd.
Calamares graphical installer
comfy, but
Installation Tracking
Calamares can be configured to do installation tracking. If it is, you will get a page in the installation process that asks you to enable installation tracking. If, and only if, you enable installation tracking, then Calamares will send information once only about your hardware to the server configured by the distribution.
This is used by distributions to count how often they are installed, and on what kinds of machines -- which helps the distribution tailor its packages to the machines its users typically use.
When Calamares sends information about the hardware, it sends:
the make and model of your CPU
the amount of main memory
the total amount of attached disk
As part of sending this information, Calamares necessarily makes your IP address known to the receiving party.
made by germs
Since when is horrible qt better for user than still functional gtk?
At least they ship openrc+lxde with calamares. Still better than artix, which is too amateurish. "Return of the Jedi".. Really?

who gives a fuck about any of that if you're an average C programmer? init freedom? who the fuck cares, a lot of gentoo users switch to systemd to avoid the painfully slow bootup times.

systemd
faster than openrc with RC_PARALLEL=yes

It doesn't matter who's fault it is. Either way it's a deal breaker.

We're not even talking about the AUR here, we're talking about the packages in the repo. The ones the repo maintainers are responsible for. The ones that, were this any distro other than an Arch derivative, are supposed to work without any bullshit.

b-b-but muh-muh d-drivers no werk!!1!!1!
If the drivers required to make my system work do not work, I'm not using your OS. Word it any way you want, but nobody wants to use a broken system. This is why people make fun of Arch subhumans with X IS BROKE LOL jokes.

Based on: Arch

Meh, if I wanted Arch then I'd use Arch. Derivative distros are a dime a dozen, and don't tend to have the support and longevity of base distros.

Start up times are meaningless because Linux is stable enough to be running for months without needing to restart / start up.

thats true, i asked the question i just asked in sticky at manjaro forum almost 2 weeks ago and still no one has said anything about how to fix it

Honestly, this makes me feel better about void. I think ponyfags are gay as hell, but the fact that they don't shun and turn away degenerates is a good sign imho. Normie repellent as far as I am concerned.

Its an ok distro, any problem it has can be resolved by cross referencing it with Arch and the installer is pretty nice.
Problems
Where the fuck is the iso
Digging around for an iso and getting one that shouts out archbang or artix(same fucking thing) is annoying as hell. This was 5 months ago so things might have changed but holy shit make up your minds
32 Bit doesn't work
This is true across everything for Arch based and it has to do with the pgp keys. For which there is no genuine solution but hope they fix it in the year or pick a machine with a different architecture to use a different version.
Wine
Wine uses 32 bit libs and other things from the repo. Its not a matter of Wine can't get the libs its that the repo for Wine is broken as shit.
Why not Just Use Parabola?
Seriously its RMS approved you fucking faggots. Isn't this the distro where one of the devs is some greek fucking anarchist? Its either this one or salix, anyways far too many fucking faggots involved and they won't put in the effort to pull off the FSF standards.
Good things
Its Arch without Systemd
Arch is piss easy to install if you're too dumb to configure the package manager for Gentoo or just want binary's for everything instead of an emerge. You don't have systemd and you get Pacman which is a pretty good Package Manager.
