Can someone tell me how important a distro being "cutting edge" is? How much will it actually effect me, man who isn't autistically adjusting his system 24/7?

Isaiah Ramirez

cutting edge is indeed a meme outside of desktop circlejerks
stability is what you want when you're actually trying to get something to work for more than a week and not have to wake up to angry messages about how something is down
Jow Forums doesn't understand this because they have never ever ever had a real job

If the main non-corporate GNU distros are Arch GNU and Debian GNU, which GNU distros represents corporate GNU distros?

For those who want a non-systemd Arch, try Artix which is based on Arch but uses openrc or runit instead of systemd.

For those who want to try a non-systemd Debian, try Devuan.

I've tried both and I liked Devuan, but I'm totally in love with Artix.

my workstation runs Arch. after the initial setup nothing really broke for me. You're right about servers, those are running Ubuntu LTS.
I personally prefer Arch over Debian but wih systemd, everything outside package management becomes pretty much the same

All distros are basically beta testing for some other distro. Also Fedora is a community based distro.

non-LTS ubuntu is a beta test for LTS ubuntu, which could be arguably a beta test for Debian to an extent. Also RHEL uses barely anything of Fedora, and they maintain their own software.
You act as if redhat throws things into fedora that will explicitly only be used by and for redhat once its been "beta tested", and that's just not true.

Debian stable for a minimalist, just werks distro. If you don't need the newest software or kernels, no point leaving
Arch for packages up to date. Its wiki is pretty good not only for arch but for every distro.
Simply a matter of preference
No one criticized the corporate ones, rhel shill. Don't get so triggered over it.

If your system is modern some of your hardware might not work properly on old kernels, that said you can install newer kernels on Debian, so it doesn't really matter at all.

I'm totally in love with Artix.
but i don't understand it man, you're totally in love with it because it has no systemd? or because you would also be in love with arch if no alternative was present?

Why do you think that they don't selling your data? Logically there's a much bigger chance they do something fishy because they need to make a profit somehow.

In my experience it's easier to find software/support on Arch and although problems from not being up to date enough are rare it's still a huge pain in the ass when it does happen and better to just bypass the problem completely.

That being said having to set up audio and fonts on every reinstall is fucking tedious.

On Debian it feels like you're sifting through all the old shit that builds up when you install like three packages. So I would say Arch.
