Arch Linux is the best distribution for beginners

This a stub/draft for now, public though.

  • AUR is the best for beginners
  • yay pacman wrapper is amazing, it gets from official Arch repo AND AUR.
  • Install 99% of packages this if doesn’t exist can make your own AUR, but most of the time someone has already done this.
  • AUR downfalls:

    • Most are not public repos to submit merge/pull requests against. I think they should all be on an AUR GitLab for collaboration
    • Only way to communicate is to in comments on the AUR package page
  • Other distros are a nightmare for installing things
