What's Ubuntu?
by scarecrow on Tue 29th Mar 2005 20:42 UTC

Is it normal to REBUILD all your programs on (k)ubuntu to have MP3 support (for Gnome and KDE integration you are shit out of luck, even if you use universe/multiverse/unofficial repos...) because this thing has "fixed Debian for the Desktop" by simply screwing it?
For me Debian SID with all its bugs is much superior to Ubuntu, and Arch is a few ages ahead (for the desktop). A plain "pacman -Sy something" would install "something" in a matter of seconds, including things forbidden for (k)ubuntu, and for things not included on the official or TUR repos, a simple visit on the ArchLinux forum will most likely bring you an ABS building script, which is simply the most advanced and trouble-free way to build from source ever invented (sorry, Gentoo'ers...).
