A couple seconds later we both have our heads leaning forward and we start to laugh hard. Since I learned to drive in a manual, my instinct was to press the clutch to engage second gear, so I pressed the brake pedal instead (is larger in automatics). I did it a couple more times then I finally overcame the urge to use my left foot.
    I learned to drive on an automatic but whenever I drive one now, I often have the urge to use my left foot, so I definitely relate. It also feels weird when driving a slushbox because the RPM doesn't match the acceleration.
    The only thing I dislike in automatics are the ones that didn't have crawling when you release the brake. It was nerve wreaking parking a E-Class Mercedes in a tight garage, with the owner (and my CEO boss) looking in my early 20's...
    The automatics that tend to do that I think use DCTs, and I think some CVTs do that too but I might be mistaken. I think this is because it preserves the life of the clutches.

      I'm really glad I stirred things up here. Had to humble the arch crowd a little bit.

      The fact that *you* guys got that riled up over my seemingly obvious troll post, says more about you than me.

      About the 1000 atta boys vs the 1 aww sh!t's, that's true. Doesn't apply to my situation, but that's a good saying.

      You guys know perpetually high comes in peace, so I don't have to explain myself further. Cheers and God speed.

        Gentoo is awesome BUT it can get difficult to manage on a everyday environment since compilations can take a long time and depending how aggressive you are with your optimizations you can tank your CPU performance for doing actual work in the meantime.

        On the other hand ArchLinux provide the best of both worlds pacman for fast updates and makepkg/AUR/ABS for when you wanna get your hands dirty, so is a natural progression for many Gentoo users.

        Also many ArchLinux users still use Gentoo, just not as a main driver since Gentoo is awesome to test new ideas and software combinations from the ground up.

        ArchLinux and Gentoo user here btw
        Best post in the thread. Thanks for sharing

          With the introduction of systemd. Almost all Linux distros are pretty identical these days. I think it is quite nostalgic to hear a good old "distro war" on these forums

          Next up is Vi vs Emacs and C vs C++.

            but only after prime time - until the issue X11 vs Wayland is solved

              The Arch Wiki is so well done and so well maintained that became almost a disgrace!

              Now the majority of the dIstros in their wikis just write to look into the Arch Wiki for better explanations...

                  Gosh I remember Xorg vs Xsun in the Solaris days.

                  At least Wayland is relatively new vs some of these ancient arguments.

                      This is exactly my use case. Started with Gentoo in winter 2005 and was happy and successful with it through spring 2012. No config or maintenance problems, did what I needed and did it well. I had left Debian after getting tired of juggling a couple dozen (or more?...) unstable packages in order to get up-to-date programs (e.g. Inkscape, which is what I think pushed me to the edge).

                      By 2012 I was ready for something that didn't require rebuilding every upgraded package, yet still offered (non-compilation option) configurability with a relatively simple, clean footprint, and also supported non-official, user supplied pkgs. Obviously, that was Arch. Looking back, I'm not sure why I went with Gentoo in the beginning, except that when I searched for other distros I didn't learn about Arch. Apparently, Arch was started before Gentoo -- if memory serves. Also, I had experience with the *BSDs.

                      Now I am *far* more proficient at Arch than I ever was at Gentoo, probably because PKGBUILDs seem easier to me than ebuilds? Anyway, I am happy and will stick with Arch unless it were to cease to exist
