    This is true, but this should(no joke) be common sense and a part of computer literacy. If navigating the windows C: drive etc and using MS word, excel, powerpoint etc can be considered common sense, so can installing linux and using LibreOffice.
    This should should really be considered since it seems that without it common people don't even have the capability to choose an OS for themselves, the value of which should be reason enough to make it happen.

    If this is not a requirement even for computer science focused high schools there really is something wrong.

    I was more referring to the 'tone' of the respondents with regards to people wrecking their system while trying to use linux.

    Have you ever tried installing windows on a PC with any other OS installed?

    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.

    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.

    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.
