Well actually Plan9 started it, if you notice his title is somewhat closely resembling the one Xeb started, almost as if he saw Xeb's when he woke up and decided to mock it. Just sayin, looks pretty freaking suspicious when you think about it.

Yeah, we all know this thread was created as a bit of a joke. Lets not turn this into an all out war now.

Yeah but mocking somebody is an act of aggression, I don't care really I just don't find it funny either. I didn't look at this and go "oh, so funny". I saw it and saw somebody who wants to make their ego bigger by going "I've mastered Arch and so now I'm so bored I have to mock somebody directly". So I decided to add something productive to the thread, while others decided to go with the mocking and now I'm just pointing it out. If I were Xeb I'd have been mean about it but I'm not Xeb so I'm just pointing out how it looks from another POV.

Depends on how you take it. Obviously you're the only one taking it offensively... The rest are taking it as it is, good ol' fun. Sometimes it nice not to always be so uptight and 'proper' tongue.gif

I just think it's kind of pointless to start a new thread, mocking somebody, just because your bored. Mock the thread, keep it personal between people. This is a bit more public, everyone knows he's mocking Xeb. If he's down, that's cool, but I find it a bit tasteless like that. Too me, public humiliation is generally done by something I'm not allowed to type. If it weren't the whole "look everyone" and be a bit more considering to the person I'd probably not point this out. This is a professional MB, and some people like to actually keep it a bit professional looking. An new thread just to mock somebody is not only a waste of DB but extremely unprofessional.

[edit] How about making this simple. How lonely for attention are you to mock somebody, that you have to start an entirely new thread to mock them instead of posting a reply? That's how I see it and I'm sure many others might actually agree.

Yeah, I'm sick of fiddling with everything to get crap to compile. I know how all that works, and after all that while you got a nice performance boost. In most stuff, games ect..., it didn't really matter so I'm done with that for now. lol I'll just compile the packages I find need customization. haha
I really don't like Ubuntu. Never have. So i don't see the point in trying the new release when I'm perfectly happy with what I already run.
I appreciate Ubuntu works for some people, but I'm not one of those people.

Not to mention, feature wise Ubuntu is actually pretty damn amazing. There are a lot of things Ubuntu does that only really works in Ubuntu. Like my audio, it actually works with Pulse and Ubuntu but wont' work in Arch/Gentoo or even my favorite Debian. =( I get output, but now that I've got a mic I kind of want it working LOL
Pure FUD. Glad audio works for you in Ubuntu but lets not start parading anecdotal evidence as fact.

Once you've achieved your complete customization it's all maintenance, which is dull. Though Arch really isn't hard at all, it's on the same difficulty as any distro that allows network installations from base installs. I see the person wondering what there is to do, and instead of making a pointless simple thread that means nothing they could have done something like try a new distro or actually respond to their own created thread.
The reason I use Arch is because once it's set up there's very little maintenance involved. No distro upgrades, no manual compiling, just a running work station. I will grant you that there's a lot of work involved to get to that stage, but for me I'd end up putting that time in to get any distro working how I want, so I might as well invest that time in a modularised rolling release distro as it will save me from the inevitable upgrade cycles where I'll have to reconfigure everything again.

At the end of the day, there is no "one size fits all" solution. And the key to a good techy is knowing which tool is best for which job. This also means you have to accept that some people are better suited / prefer some distros to other people.

Also, and I hope you don't mind me saying this, it's a little weird that last week you were trying to convert me to Gentoo and this week it's Ubuntu. That's quite a contrast. In fact so much so that it comes across a little biased rather than an impartial recommendation based on what you believe is best suited for me smile.gif

I agree it wasn't funny (i'm hardly a comedy genius) but it really wasn't meant as anything more than playful banter and perhaps a friendly chat about Arch. Though if I'm honest, I expected most people to start mocking me for creating such a lame thread laugher.gif

Xeb seems to be someone who doesn't take himself too seriously - however if he has taken offence then I welcome a thread closure and any official warnings that brings.

As long as there are no flame wars and this thread merely encourages productive discussion about Linux, I think everything is just fine. smile.gif

BTW, I'll be checking out the new release of Ubuntu today. How's everyone liking it?
