@charlag Outdated software with non-critical bugs is bearable. "Rolling release", where every upgrade breaks something critical, is not.
Last time I ran #Arch, I had several identical installations, and upgraded just one of them at a time (cycled through), so I could just reboot into some older version to be able to use a piece of software broken in the latest upgrade.
Yet, whenever I complained to other Arch users about it, they only responded "nope, everything works fine to me"…
An interesting thing to consider:
The website Prism-Break.org exists to help shield people from government surveillance by recommending only free and open source software.
I blame @nigeldgreen for mentioning I should check out recent #nextcloud - so I did in an #arch #linux VM; I chose arch because it had recent nextcloud 15 packages where as other distros seemed to have ancient ones.
Although arch does very little for you, so it was a case of configuring it by hand - but the arch wiki instructions were fairly good and it only took about an hour or two (including the bits I missed). The calendaring, stuff looks pretty neat.
