Everybody I talk to say that Arch (and derivs) are not for “daily work in a professional environment”.
I was getting tired of hearing that so I am (during my holiday) trying to compare som distros to see if they are more stable.
I have done som testing on Ubuntu 20.04 and Pop OS 20.04.
Pop OS is quicker in most situations so I did some more testing with Pop.
On Archlabs some important apps (for me) are nitroshare, wine, virtualbox/qemu, wireguard (and sheepshaver for mac os classic nostalgia). Emulation is very important for me for work (music-score-arrangements and recording etc)
First dissapointment was nitroshare! Had to build and install manually and could not get to work properly. Wine. I tried both “distro-wine” and winehq. I could not get anyone of them to work in Pop OS!
Wireguard. Pop Os is using system-boot and when installing wireguard in Pop it tries to drag in grub. I followed the instructions. Pop did not crash or anything but wireguard will not install without grub (strange!) I wasn’t able to install grub in Pop.
Even though Pop Os is quick and seems to be rather stable it doesnt work for my needs!
I also found other odd things in Pop! If you are using apt to install things and then want to search/look in Pop OS “appstore” you can see that apps installed with apt are not marked as installed in “appstore”! Many rather small things like that I found and after a while I got frustrated!
What do you think guys? Do you use Archlabs for work or studies? Do you use another distro for work or university?
