"Time to install Arch Linux!"
*8 hours later*
"Back to Open Suse!"

Repeat every 4-5 months.

Seriously, I would LOVE to get Arch running on my laptop, but everytime I try to something goes wrong, be it bootloader, audio, cooptimus drivers, undetected network card, window manager going crazy, etc etc etc... and I simply end giving up and reinstalling my backup.

Someday, Arch, someday...

    Look up the arch installer called feliz. Very simple and easy to use!
    Or you can try Manjaro or antegros which are derivates of arch.

    @gnaaah @QuantumAtom Thanks for the tips, but the reason Arch attracts me is that "I know my computer" feeling, which I would not get with those easy-archs 😔

    Arch is a good to manually install once or twice. You learn something, feel great and get tinkering.

    It showed me a more inside look into the file system etc, but it's not something I'd do day to day.

    Manjaro gives you a nice environment that works out of the box without having to spend another six hours after installation to get basic sound working.

    Tl;dr: install arch once or twice to learn, get an installer afterwards.
