2018 press

I have some doubts about [1]... first it requires me to disable my ad blocker. Mainly it only includes two small paragraphs on Arch, next to 20 other distributions, including:

No list of the best Linux distros would be complete without mentioning Arch, widely considered to be the distro of choice for Linux veterans. One of the reason it's so popular, however, is that it's very complex, requiring a large amount of technical know-how to properly set up and configure.

(what does "that it's" refer to? the installation process?...) -- Alad (talk) 16:15, 26 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

And I thought Arch was simple. --Larivact (talk) 16:23, 26 October 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I am not that conviced of Special:Diff/551303 either:

Arch Linux challenges you to build your PC’s operating system yourself

Building an OS is sth. completely different.

Using the AUR isn’t immediately intuitive, but there are ways to make the experience simpler. A tool like Yaourt can help you out in the command line, while Octopi provides a graphical interface that does the background work for you.

Yaourt and Octopi are not only unsupported but also actively discouraged.
