📚 Rolling release distros that doesn't cost you 1 hour to install a bunch of softwares
I've being using Ubuntu for 4 years, Manjaro for 1, and Opensuse Tumbleweed for 6 months. And the idea of not having to worry about formatting everything in every 2-3 years, is really attractive. But I also found more difficult to install things on Manjaro than on Ubuntu, due to the lack of direct support to Manjaro from the developer side of many programs.
I usually had to download packages that the community make, and that always felt less safe than just downloading the package directly from the software original website and installing it. I'm aware that everyone says that AUR repository is very safe, because everything is tested. But wouldn't be better to download the original version?
Besides that, not everything will be there. Requiring me to dive into a long process to manage to run it. I kind like it, actually, but it will coast a lot of time
I didn't want to go back to Ubuntu, but it seems that the only downside would be to re-downloading it every a couple of years.
