Tried Arch Linux After 2 Years
After being a Linux user for over two years, I recently decided to give Arch Linux a try. I had heard about it for a while but was always hesitant to switch from my current distro. After doing some research, I decided it was time to take the plunge and see what all the fuss was about.
First off, I had to learn how to install Arch. Unlike most other distros, Arch requires you to manually install the operating system by entering commands in the terminal. This can be a bit intimidating at first, but I found that there were plenty of resources online that could help me get started. Once I got the basics down, I was able to install the entire system without any major issues.
Once I had the system installed, I took some time to explore the available software. I was surprised to find that there were a lot of popular applications available, such as Firefox and LibreOffice. The main difference from my other distro was that most of the software was up to date. This was a big plus, since I had grown used to dealing with outdated versions of my favorite apps.
Next, I looked into how Arch handled updates. I was pleasantly surprised to find that updates were easy to manage and could be done quickly. This was a stark contrast to my other distro, where I often had to wait days or even weeks for updates. With Arch, I could update my system with the latest packages in a matter of minutes.
When it came to performance, I found that Arch was noticeably faster than my other distro. This was especially true when it came to booting up the system and running applications. I also noticed that my system felt more responsive overall. This was a nice bonus, as I was used to dealing with sluggish performance on my other distro.
Overall, I was very impressed with my experience running Arch Linux. It was easy to install, had the latest applications, and performed better than any other distro I had used. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable and powerful Linux distribution.
