Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu I've been an Arch user for roughly 3 years. I'm pretty much familiar with it all - The way it boots, its configuration and its package management. I've also heard a lot of good things about Ubuntu, and wanted to try it for a long time. So, two weeks ago, I took the plunge. These are my findings.

Well, Eugenia. I feel much like you do. Arch is simply the greatest distribution I ever tried (believe me, I've tested a whole lot of distributions in the past 9 years) but, unfortunately it has some user friendliness "problems".

Well, they're not exactly problems in the sense that they're just not what the distro is focused at.

What I'd really like to see (and even contribute if there were enough people involved -- I used to customize distros to meet some enterprise's needs a few years ago) is a sibling project with Arch, to use the Arch code base to develop a truly user friendly distribution on top of it.

ABS and Pacman (in its upcoming version) would make the job a charm to complete... well... one can dream, right ?

Fortunately I can live without this userfriendliness and will happily live with my Arch system.
