I was pretty horrified to be greeted by this message whilst running #ubuntu today. I’ve always enjoyed Ubuntu as a distro that “just works” but I’m starting to get pretty frustrated with Canonical #enshittifying the experience over time. Thinking about jumping back to Mint or possibly #fedora – I think #arch is too high maintenance.

    @jamesravey The setup cost of #arch is higher, but maintenance for me consists of `sudo pacman -Syu` every so often followed by a reboot. Is that more trouble than the other options?

      @underlap @[email protected] Ah fair enough! I used Arch while I was at Uni around 12-15 years ago and I frequently found that if you're not careful a pacman update could break your setup and you'd have to spend a while fixing it (not ideal when you're trying to write your dissertation!) Is it better now?
