Why you should use Arch Linux:
Arch Linux is the best rolling-release distribution out there. However, the reason behind this is that Arch excels in many other areas, too, and that’s why you can use it as my main operating system.
- Arch Linux is a great distro for those who want to learn everything about Linux. Because you have to install everything manually, you learn all the bits and pieces of a Linux-based operating system.
- Arch is the most customizable distribution. There is no “Arch” flavor of any DE. All you get is a foundation and you can build whatever distro want, on top of it. For good or for worse, unlike openSUSE or Ubuntu there is no extra patching or integration. You get what upstream developers created. Period.
- Arch Linux is also one of the best rolling releases. It’s always updated. Users always run the latest packages, and they can also run pre-released software through unstable repositories.
- Arch is also known for having excellent documentation. Arch Wiki is a powerful resource for everything Linux related.
- What you will like the most about Arch is that is offers almost every package and software that’s available for “any” Linux distribution, thanks to the Arch User Repository, AUR.
I am sure, if you use Arch Linux, you will fall in love with this. Thank You.
