    is is an old post. but antergos is about to be overtaken by solus!

    Yeah , Solus is rock solid / stable but debian’s packages are very outdated, you can find bugs (mostly UI related) that had been fixed and patched almost a year ago, happened to me way too often, this takes me way back when i installed debian from scratch, after that i was scratching my head when i saw the version numbers, this left me with a corrupted user experience

  • Solus seems to get much more publicity which can’t do it any harm. eg. http://news.softpedia.com/news/solus-devs-promise-boot-optimizations-release-solus-plasma-early-access-iso-519619.shtml
    The last thing on softpedia about Antergos was a year ago.
    I think Mr Doherty also has a bit of a cult following. He’s all over youtube…
    What is Antergos doing to promote itself?

    To be honest… nothing. We do not have the manpower to spend time on promoting the OS, I’m afraid.

    I only find time to enter our own forum once in a while… we all have our jobs and families… ;)

    As always, we’re open to suggestions (or help!).


  • @karasu Well - you have a great OS here and I for one am very grateful for your work - family (and paid jobs) first!

  • Completely understand there @karasu :) . We all have actual lives to live. However, perhaps you could be a promoter @JonPaul? It would surely help Antergos as a whole I’m sure.

  • @JonPaul also has a life - not to mention I wouldn’t know where to start!

  • Gotcha. It was only a suggestion, and thank you for the explanation @JonPaul.

  • @karasu can we make a promotion team? guys that run different social media like G+ twitter facebook and others?

    some guys on here might have some good ideas on promoting.

    There are already twitter, G+ group and a Facebook group/page (I don’t remember what exactly is) that are pretty inactive because:

    • We don’t really have great things done. Lately we have our hands full with maintaining packages and fixing Cnchi bugs.
    • I’m in facebook and G+, but it’s been ages since I used them. I’m a twitter user now. I don’t know about lots0logs and Faidoc (who, by the way, are really busy with their full time jobs)
    • I have two jobs now. That’s the reason I’m not so active lately.

    But yes, I will open a new thread so everybody can share their ideas, and maybe form a promotion group.
