After about 8 months with [Ubuntu], I decided it was time for change. I had for a while wanted to switch to some other distribution, not because I did not like Ubuntu, more because I wanted to learn more about Linux, and try something new. And I felt Ubuntu limited me in this direction. Furthermore, I wanted to have a system which I did not feel I had to reinstall whenever new major updates came out, I wanted a system I could improve over time. I wanted a system where I could switch desktop environment/window manager quickly, and without googling myself on how to then remove all the old, now useless, packages. And rolling-release seems to be the solution, to that problem.
I quickly found a distro. which seemed to fit my requirements, [Arch Linux]. Arch Linux is lightweight, and simple. I found a quote on the Wiki, which describes it quite well:
“Linux, with a nice package manager.”
And my edition:
“Linux, with an nice package manager, and a kick-ass Wiki.”
