What type of base do you prefer for your desktop Linux OS?
@EdwardTorvalds debian and ubuntu are quite different experiences imho. also debian stable can be quite old compared to ubuntu. also i would never dare to put rhel (enterprise) and fedora (rolling distro) on the same level
@da_habakuk @sesivany @EdwardTorvalds I've been following #Fedora Rawhide on and off for years. Its rolling nature was never the issue. The main issues I had were RPM Fusion packages being out of sync (they got better at rebuilding them quickly, but not quickly enough) and a few packagers who thought it was ok to push known-broken updates because "rawhide isn't supposed to be stable all the time". This is the mindset that pushed me to #ArchLinux.
Maybe you should make a match out of it like @fribbledom did https://mastodon.social/@fribbledom/103654002004342217
@sjw I was just saying about usage pattern, not comparing based on their strengths and weaknesses. Yes, windows suck, Bill Gates need to jump from large building
@EdwardTorvalds Debian and Ubuntu should be split. Ubuntu is used by many "first time users" but Debian is on opposite scale of the users (and would not expect bit penetration).
@alinka Manjaro is just Arch Linux 'managed' for non-technical users.
But Debian and Ubuntu differ a lot.
Multiple choice would have been nice :)
Personally I use Archlinux at home, Debian 10 at work, and recommend Fedora to people who just want to use Linux (without using the Terminal, if possible). Maybe I'm switching to Fedora too.
And on the server ... Ubuntu LTS. But that wasn't the question, I know.
@EdwardTorvalds Using pure Debian many years but to be honest, Arch has the best knowledge base. Majority of my technical issues was resolved by Arch wiki.
@EdwardTorvalds you don't need to include Arch since those people will just tell you without being asked
