My Arch Linux Love Affair

Upon reading The Arch Way, it was love at first sight.

Arch is fantastic. Of all the distros I’ve tried over the years: Red Hat, SUSE, Ubuntu/Debian, CentOS, Elementary OS, and Mint, none of them ever stuck. I have finally put a ring on Arch’s finger. She is The One.

I’m sure our initial honeymoon phase was heightened by my first trip to Gnome Shell. Seriously. I have never tried Gnome 3/Shell before, due to all of the controversial slandering about it.

I’ve tried everything else under the sun: Gnome 2, old KDE, KDE plasma, Unity, Cinnamon, Xfce, Pantheon, and LXDE. Gnome Shell completely blows them all out of the water. It feels like an extension of my thoughts. It’s lovely.

Arch Has the Beauty
