About Breakage

No idea why People advocate here that Arch does not break. Of course it breaks, it's a rolling distro. A few of our main devs have even a title to cause frequent breakage. So I think it's more about the mentality and what people do when stuff breaks. Having the capability of fixing breakage in not more than 5min (knowing where to look and what to do) is a guarantee for smooth sailing and comes with experience. After a while you've seen most of the things that can happen. I use Arch for years and yes sometimes it breaks. I am then like wuuuh where, when, how? Unfortunately I fix stuff too fast so the other 99% I use arch, I am just frustrated and bored that nothing breaks... :)
