Currently have my Plex server up and running under Mint 18.3 and my daily desktop machine is running Antergos.
I know a lot of people highlight the fact that rolling distros aren’t the best for rock solid stability and newbies MIGHT want to steer clear of them because of the potential to break something critical to the boot process when applying updates thus rendering your PC dead until you dig into the command line and fix it.
I picked Mint over Debian and Ubuntu because it gave me the least problems during setup and everything did indeed ‘just work’ out of the box.
But, I came across ONE small issue with Mint that required me to manually compile a program from source and install it because to address a problem I was having, I needed that newer version. This newer version was already up to date in the Antergos repos and the more I use Antergos, the more I like it. I’m very happy I picked it for my daily system but I can’t help but wonder if the grass is greener on the other side and MAYBE I should use Antergos in my Plex server as well.
What say you, experts with Antergos. Stay with Mint for stability on my Plex server or throw the dice and switch?
I mean, Mint isn’t giving me ANY problems so maybe stay with it on my server unless/until it gives me a reason to replace it?
The only core packages I use are Sonarr, Radarr, Plex, NZBGet, MKVTool and Emby.
