Google If you ever needed evidence that no, people don't want a browser as an operating system, it's this: Google has updated Chrome OS to pretty much turn it into a traditional desktop operating system. This does raise the question - does anybody actually use Chrome OS?

If I had time to much about with those things these days I might as well use on of the BSDs which have a better package and ports systems then Arch and Gentoo combined. Anyway I thought it was pretty clear that the OP wanted a more popular/easier to use distro. I've been using Fedora lately and it is pretty solid on everything I have ever thrown it on. Arch and Gentoo tbh aren't worth the hassle and it is arguable whether they are actually any better.

My personal opinion about Arch Linux is very different from your personal opinion.

If the DistroWatch list has any merit, then Arch Linux is very popular. I suppose Arch Linux was a "hassle" when I installed it two and a half years ago, but hasn't been since then.

As for Arch Linux not being "better" than other options, I wanted to use Linux (for the hardware and software support that I desire) and I wanted rolling release software updates with a good binary-based package manager. For those reasons, Arch Linux is not only a better operating system compared to others, it's the best operating system for me.
