      Debian Sid and Arch!

      Cool benchmarks. Can't wait to see them. I've used Debian Sid for last 10 years on my desktop, it would be very interesting to see some continuous metrics on that distro...

          Particularly excited to see the Arch stuff. Keep up the great work.
          I know it would be asking to much for some ABS package build

              Even though it lags behind rawhide fedora
              Enable testing and you have nearly the same packages running against Rawhide. That is what separates Arch from a literal no mans land of untested bleeding edge software.

                I don't know about that. There are lots of people on the Arch forums that are new to Linux, started with Arch and seemed to have no problems installing it. It's probably the distro with the best documentation and user guides.

                  Old(first) ones were okay, newer versions uses crappy chinese capacitors(samxon and teapo ). I would have rather took i.e. 450W xfx power supply instead.

                    Also, Antegeros installs a basic Arch system like any other distro, and then you have derivatives like Manjaro and Chakra that try to play the mainstream card. You can definitely get a pacman distribution installed even if you aren't a veteran.

                      I still have no idea why Linux is not gaining more popularity despite is (perceived) 'improvements'/advantages over Windows...
