    Phoronix: Arch-Based Manjaro Users Express Concern Over Update Strategy

    While I've ran benchmarks of the Arch-based Manjaro Linux distribution in the past and found it a convenient way to play with Arch and overall a nice distribution, it seems for users running it day in and day out aren't entirely satisfied with the update strategy of Manjaro...

    TL;DR some people discover that a stable distro takes more time to build and update than a less tested one.

      Some people are trying their best at being silly.

        OMG ! What a bunch of cry babies...

        Like they are not able to use the testing repo. I've been using it for a long time and it's all fine.

          And hopefully enough people knowing will force the developers to do something about it.
          That line pissed me off.
          Some people really need to learn HOW opensource works.

          No one owes you a flying shit.
          Want something fixed - do it yourself, or at least help it happen.

          Those whining cry-babys actually have 3 options:
          1) switch back to windoze and be happy
          2) switch distro and be happy
          3) get in touch with developers and help them fix the issue

            There is 4th option - switch to Arch and never look back

              I actually use Archbang as an easy base to install Archlinux because it has an installer. Almost no changes from Archlinux, except a pre-loaded OpenBox and X11 and its easy to migrate to a different desktop environment. No seperate repositories either.

                This is the kind of cliche that doesn't stand up to examination. The typical Linux user *can't* start fixing bugs, adding features, building packages, etc., any more than the typical Windows user. They don't know how, and don't have any reason to learn. Open source was created by developers to serve the interests of those developers. All the benefits that accrue to users are by-products.

                Users have their own cliches, too. One of them is that distributions have endless resources, so any thing "bad" that happens must be caused by sheer stupidity or malevolence.

                    why could this be? probably because annoying bugs in cinnamon 2.4, or because they want the 0.8.11 to be very stable. Whatever it is, I still haven't found another distro as good as this (for my needs) to change.
