Quoting: sourpuzYou must be the opposite of a distro-/DE-hopper :)
I was on Fedora for eight years (six as my primary operating system) and have been using Arch for nine years (seven with the same install). Started with GNOME 2 but switched to XFCE as it had better Zaphod Mode support than GNOME Shell. Everything else seems weird and scary to me. I imagine...

Seven years with one Arch install? I ... I'm speechless. Arch must be more stable than its reputation suggests. Maybe I should reconsider, I've been a Linux user since 2001 and have been avoiding Arch like the plague, I heard so many horror stories about broken systems and endless glitch-fixing. But I've been relatively enamored with openSUSE Tumbeleweed, which is somewhat similar in its release-model, I think.

Hehe, im not the only one. 9 years here on my Arch install
[email protected] ~ $ grep -a -m1 filesystem /var/log/pacman.log 
[2013-01-21 17:45] installed filesystem (2012.12-1)


Before that i had Ubuntu and Mint upgraded from 6.10 to 10.10 then repo changed to mint repositores from mint 11 to 14 without any reinstalls. that was 2007 till 2013

Most of my linux time its been Gnome2 or MATE, have run XFCE quite a bit also and a bit KDE and a little bit Cinnamon.

Hmmm, amazing. Did you have to do a lot of maintenance, like broken dependencies? I mean, Arch does have a bit of a reputation ... :) Nothing against Arch, it just comes with being on the bleeding edge, I guess.

Not really, there have been few package conflicts with AUR stuff that have been requiring manual intervention. But those are rare. There have been few cases during updates when manual intervention is needed also due to drastical package changes, but those have been documented on the home page. The install has survived 3 different motherboards without any issues. Cloned to new drives 2 times also.

Hmmm. Maybe I should give it a try on one of my laptops at least. Ah, could be a project for the holidays.
