Anything that makes Gnome seethe is good in my book. Why the change from Debian to Arch though? I haven't tried Arch since the early 2010's, how is it these days, do the official repos offer enough to get it done or do you still need to venture into the AUR and check every week if the dependencies are still the same before updating it?

>> No.82551293

Debian is made to be "stable" ie, it doesn't really support newer hardware or linux kernels that most modern games uses. Debian is still awesome, but if you want the latest graphic drivers with the most recent kernel support, you'd need something that updates more frequently. Pure Arch is based for that.

They have control over hardware, so they can make sure drivers are correct.
Fast forwarding packages is significantly more difficult than holding packages back.
Stability matters significantly less for desktop or console.

Ight makes sense. ARM would probably be better power-consumption wise but getting good compatibility with x86 games would have been a hard nut to crack. Would still be kek if someone other than Apple beats Microsoft to good x86 compat layer on ARM.

If if works for you, be happy. Xfce is just known for screen tearing. If they fixed that, it would be the optimal replacement for the entire Gnome community in general. But KDE has the most "gaming" features compared to all the other DE's.

Honestly, it's a great choice. We maintained our own repository mirror. I personally implemented an A/B boot strategy based on Android's implementation, and it worked pretty great. If you rm -rf /'d, just reboot, and the other system install will chroot and copy over pacman + dependencies, and run an install script.
