It says Ubuntu Server. Haters gonna hate, but a) both are rock-stable, b) widely used, c) have excellent security support (in the case of shellshock, Ubuntu was actually much faster [ok, relatively]) and d) you don't need to mess around with backports for getting an up-to-date kernel [your sysadmin rejoices, one thing less to care about] ... for getting things done, both are good. Also, LTS (oldstable has hitherto been the exception, not the rule).

Same for me, pacman makes it easy. Building stuff on Debain was a pain at times.  I stayed away from Arch for ages thinking it was only for super nerds but I was wrong. I find it much easier to maintain than a Debain based system.
However I do prefer the Crunchbang forums smile

Re: Pick a distro and commit

I believe I'll commit to Arch. It is, as a matter of fact, the only distro I have installed at the moment. That's what happens when you dd the wrong drive.  yikes

The Mate interface is pretty good.
There are various Debian and/or Ubuntu -based distros that support it.

When you're ready to give it a go, take a look at Antergos.  I played around with it briefly a couple weeks ago.  A very nice distro and an easy way to get Arch up and going.

Re: Pick a distro and commit

^I've looked at a Antergos and a couple of other Arch-based distros with VB. I also ran Manjaro (both Openbox nd Xfce) for a spell on my desk- and laptop HDDs. In the end, I was underwhelmed. If I were to take the plunge, it'd have to been pure Arch....

Meanwhile, my vote goes to #!  big_smile

Use Arch or don't use Arch/its derivatives at all.

Re: Pick a distro and commit

@KrunchTime: I remember when Antergos was Cinnarch. I could never get it to run properly when I tried it on VB. Even after it became Antergos, it seemed sluggish. Moreover, I'm not a fan of either Cinnamon or GNOME. If I'm going to go for desktop pizazz, I might as well go for KDE, and, if were going to do that I'd probably run openSUSE. Both my desk- and laptop have enough juice to run KDE, but I prefer a clean desktop and a lean machine. 

But there are things I like about Arch: e.g., pacman, its cli, and even AUR. If I were to commit to Arch, I'd prefer to take the long march through its wiki and the Arch installation process.  smile

Re: Pick a distro and commit

Geezer, it really isn't that difficult to install Arch. Just follow the Beginner's Guide, and you will get there. I'm not trying to convert you or anything, but if I can do it, anyone can.

Gentoo is what I wish I was smart enough to run. I have installed it successfully, several times, but I have never gotten the hang of maintaining it.
