      I've had windows frick me over by locking me out of 3 big projects in total to update.

      windows users cannot just have their system update in the background while they're doing important things because their time is worthless and they will reboot NOW and they WILL wait 2 days

            ok. and microsoft looks to protect the average layman with forced security updates. i'm sure a minor inconvenience for the end user is fine.

            they could do this without rebooting but of course pajeets couldn't possibly patch a system while it's running without fricking shit up

      I'm on the same windows install since 2009 and it has always been working just fine.
      the only OS-level issues I've ever gotten are related to AMD hardware given how absolutely dogshit their firmware/driver/user-space libs are.
      that was the case 20 years ago and nothing has ever improved, stay the frick away from this company, windows or linux it does not matter.
      intel + nvidia + windows 10 ltsc or archlinux are rock-solid combinations.

      There are people here that shit on the very concept of "updooting". Make of that what you will.

        they're low IQ, just ignore them, they probably use auto update feature on IQfy and find nothing wrong with it, they totally cannot just enjoy an old unupdated thread, they need to updoot, aaa imma gonna updoot every 10 seconds omg I'm updoooting holy shit

    Yes you are moronic only update when you reboot or maybe install something new and want to make sure everything is using the same libraries

    You'll find that arch's updates are way more gradual and incremental than big feature updates. So while there are more updates, they have less changes. Though those changes do add up over time. We only get a new desktop every 10 years when gnome or kde bump a version.
    It's like boiling a frog I guess.

      The problem with Arch is that if you don't update for too long you increase your chances of breaking something once you do.

    You're choosing to update and these updates support ALL of your software vs just the OS. You also don't need to update I update by tumbleweed install monthly

    I mean if you're ditching windows because it updates too often and you're using a rolling release distro, it's kinda on you
    at least Arch updates complete much faster and they don't need you to reboot

      you still need to restart updated programs, but at least you aren't forced to

        exactly
        you aren't even forced to do the updates immediately either. on my laptop I just do them before my bi-weekly reboot and that's it

    Yes. You should have chosen Debian if updates annoy you.

      ian murdock's life story and how it interacts with the name "debian" disqualifies any paranoid schizophrenic metaphysicist from ever using debian. that's why I use arch
