        the irony is M$ and Azure shove Ushitu garbage all over the place which is why I avoid Azure hosted services. Yes I've had ushitu ~~*stable*~~ updates in an Azure service actually break my software. I kek'd hard when I found the bug on Ubuntu's bug tracker and kek'd harder when I made a priority service request to Azure to fix their shit and offer "custom distro" choices for the future. Note, Amazon is basically its own EL-like and if you aren't an idiot, you'd probably stick with EL likes since RedHat, unlike Canonical, isn't full of incompetent shitters with weird ass hiring practices and demanding your heckin SAT just to work with Shuttleworth.

      that's a meaningless metric.
      most businesses are full of nocoders, jeets and w*men. doesn't make them right. same reason I use to use Fedora Server for some production workloads before NixOS fully captured everything I ever wanted in fully described, throwaway code defined distros.

      >b-but muh stable
      if you don't keep up with Linux and the userland, you're just going to build shitty software and seethe when your shitty software is all undefined behavior and one simple change up in GCC all of a sudden breaks literally all your code in the most hilarious and obnoxious way possible. Yes this has happened to me, it's not worth it. bleeding edgy catches your shitty mistakes.
      also if you can't fricking handle or deal with Linux bugs, you're a shitter anyhow.

        skill issue
        read the standard, and compile your code with several different compilers

    Distro hopping is super gay and useless. I hopped around on different random distros when I first became a linuxgay. Now I just used ubunut och my desktop and mint on my laptop.

    Although I will install Gentoo some day for fun

    Why use gnome when you can also kys? I don't see a usecase for using gnoem.

      that's because you're a contrarian idiot and don't realize how much better GNOME is to anything else.

    Debian has 100%, unironically, been less stable for me than Arch every time I've tried it over the last several years. On multiple machines/servers.

      I agree, but Arch doesn't use .deb packages, therefore it's not viable for casual use.

        There's plenty of scripts to unpack them and install them on Arch.

      not surprising. Debian package management is pure brain damage. infamous trolls like mjg basically outted it multiple times. the maintainer of software like XTerm and terminfo shit, Dickey, has repeatedly harassed the mawk maintainer in Debian (was or still is the default awk in debian) because they were shipping an ancient broken version with weird ass patches and keep in mind the stupid xz backdoor shit was only exploitable due to low quality patching done by debian maintainers to openssh.

      generally arch and fedora keep shit clean and upstream for the most part with patching focusing more on removing vendoring dependencies.

        I recently installed Debian on a work server to host our Intranet website, and am already regretting doing so. It shit the bed on the last kernel update, panic on attempting reboot, and I had to edit GRUB to boot the old kernel.
        I picked Debian over Ubuntu because of all the Snap BS Ubuntu has been pushing for years, but apparently that was the lesser evil.

    because mint is made for personal desktop use while debian has to be tinkered with to get anywhere near the level of "just works" that mint has
