@anarch I’ve been using Antergos for quite some time and never had any issues. This is the first time, and this is a minor problem.
Ubuntu used to be my main distro–it’s the one I started out in–but ironically I had many issues with it, and so I moved to using Arch. Ubuntu had a lot of problems with how the greeter and LightDM etc played with the proprietary nVidia drivers I was using. Those issues caused me to end up seeing nothing but a black screen on startup–which is kind of a big deal. I also found that a lot of times with Ubuntu, unless you upgrade with a clean install, there were issues. I didn’t like having to start over entirely from scratch every time I wanted to upgrade with Ubuntu. I don’t mind the backing up of data, I do that anyway. I did mind having to reinstall program after program and reconfigure settings etc to get the programs to look and function the way I want.
I think it’s just a matter of preference and how each distro plays with your hardware. I find that Arch is actually more stable in my case, and I have the benefit of a rolling release. So, there’s none of that nonsense of spending a lot of time to reinstall programs on a fresh system and configure those programs back to how they were before I upgraded and so forth.
Another thing I have noticed that is different between Antergos and Ubuntu is how well they work if you have multiple DEs installed. In Ubuntu there were a lot of compatibility issues that would pop up if you had a few DEs. I have KDE Plasma 5 (which is atrocious by the way, I would recommend Plasma 4 as I think it’s much nicer), Xfce, LXDE, Cinnamon, MATE, GNOME, and I think there may be one or two more that I can’t remember off the top of my head, installed on my Antergos system and I don’t have any of the problems of compatibility–where programs will try to pull styling and so forth from one DE into another and not be able to do it and so the programs crash or don’t look correctly etc. I don’t know why Antergos has less of an issue with handling multiple DEs than Ubuntu does, but that’s just been my experience having used it all these months.
I still like Ubuntu, I keep it current on one of my computers that I have a dual boot Windows 10 Insider Preview (which is really nice if you put aside Libre FSF ideology, which isn’t easy for me to do as I got into Linux because of principles and not function in the first place) and Ubuntu 15.04 (soon to be 15.10 once the development gets a bit more underway) on. I just don’t like to depend on Ubuntu for my main system. I use Antergos on that because, for me in my experience, it’s much less of a hassle.
