Hi nosystemdthanks,

I just realized that your moniker was no-sytemd-thanks. I'm slightly astigmatic. Almost failed the 5th grade because of the difficulty I had reading. [Never really learned how to spell]. By now I can quickly scan and get the gist of things. But unless I concentrate I miss details. Up until now I thought your moniker was nosymethinks = nosy-me-thinks. Rolling Eyes I thought that a clever self-evaluation. Wink

I guess I'll have to take your posts more seriously. Sad

p.s. Don't think you were singled out. For a long time I thought belham2's moniker was bedlam. Now I have to take his posts more seriously. A world in which people always take themselves seriously is not as much fun. Crying or Very sad

my handle is actually nostril-de-franks, im going to blame this misunderstanding on the w3c.

i should have also mentioned that while it is based on arch, hyperbola has the distinction of being stable and lts. im not sure what that means yet in practice, but theyre adamant about it and its quite ambitious.

I am an long time Arch user, and I downloaded Hyperbola yesterday after seeing your post. Hadn't been aware of it.

Let me just say this:

Hyperbola is to Arch what Arch is to the rest of the Linux world in terms of getting things setup and actually working.

In other words, Hyperbola (while laudable in their efforts, especially a LTS Arch with Debian-like applied security updates) is a godforsaken mess of an OS. The time I spent just trying to get basic stuff to setup & actually run was unbearable, frustrating, maddening.....and I am an "Arch" guy who loves the Arch-way of setting stuff up!

Hyperbola needs a whale-load more work and, especially, serious coding help so that the simple things upon initial booting up are not so obtuse & frustrating. What is/was maddening is that the things Arch has accomplished over the years & made straight-forward Hyperbola has suddenly made 'hard' and a "guessing game" again.

My Hyperbola verdict: In its present iteration, a "not worth the effort".

I've just installed the latest update of Bunsen Labs Helium (4), and it's working well thouigh it still has for me the rather gloomy blue / slate blue theme (which can of course be changed).

I'm still in two minds as to which I prefer between Helium and Crunchbang (to which it is closely related), but it's good that I've got enough room on my hard drive for both.
