Well for programming, I have tried ubuntu, few other debians, and opensuse, but nothing came close to arch Linux, because arch is a community driven linux os, which is extremely light weight and for packages there Are ton of support from main repositories and AUR(arch user repository),

Well after installing arch I haven't even touched any other package installers like snap or download .sh files from internet, or any other gui applications, just whatever the package we need, is present in the repositories.

The only thing you have to make virtual environment bcz it's an rolling release distro, almost everyday there will be an update to some packages, too if you update system everyday, like few people
