Thoughts on Apricity OS?

I haven't tried it, but I absolutely love everything I've seen about it so far. The same apps I would have installed normally are preinstalled, low memory usage, based on arch, lots of security applications, just werks, etc.

>>51963767
Using it right now. It's a little buggy,had some issues updating the keyring, and there's certain tweaks they performed with Gnome that annoy me (the top bar for instance). Other than the couple of applications that I'll never use, it's ok. I'd rather just stick with a regular Arch/Gnome installation though.

I use it. The GUI package manager is not really stable and sometimes slow as fuck, so i stick with good old pacman/yaourt from the cli.

>> No.51964217

This. Easily the worst GUI package manager for pacman I've ever used.

why do you all care about yet another distro that is clearly just a fork with a skin... are you all shills?

>> No.51964356

>>51964306
I use it because of said skin. This skin is what it looks like when i go through the hassle to configure shit myself. And since i'm a lazy fuck and this distro exists i use it.

>> No.51964459

>>51964306
I've got it installed in a VM because I feel the same way you do. My reasoning for doing this is sometimes a distro will come along that has features I've never used or even heard of. There isn't alot of discussion about new things in the Linux community (at least in terms of applications).

Pick one. Why another fork? Consolidate the ecosystem. This is becoming a clusterfuck of distros cannibalizing each other.

What the fuck?

Why don't people just focus on actually creating a new decent toolkit or desktop environment or design even (like the Numix people or https://solus-project.com/budgie/ ) instead of basically reskinning existing distros?
