I go back and forth on funtoo. I ran it for about two years but eventually ended up back on Gentoo. It's got some cool ideas, but I'd prefer to stick with where the brunt of development is focused. Maybe when I learn a lot more about software I can try again and be a more active participant in the distro's development, I hope it stays around for a long time.

As for the reinstall, I keep a SystemRescueCD flash drive around, that's usually all I need to start fresh.

I will still have to try it to recommend it, but maybe having an immutable workstation will reduce your issues. Someone here mentioned Silverblue, but Darch can do the same with Gentoo, Arch, etc.

Yeah, for sure. It's not something I've spent much time looking in to, but does seem like it would address my problem from the limited understanding I have.
