Venture Out

I reinstalled my operating system many times before. I probably didn't
need to if i just knew what to do and if I didn't make mistakes trying
to undo previous mistakes. I reinstall because I'm in to deep into
trying out solutions to my original problem and digging myself out will
just take a lot more time than if I reinstall.

In any case, reinstalling seemed like a cop out for something as elegant
as the Linux operating system. I believe this enough that I dual boot
two linux distros, Ubuntu and Arch. I use Ubuntu because it follows a 6
month development cycle and then use the final version until the next
cycle produces the next version. This means it is stable and secure for
the set time. I dual boot it with Arch because I want to learn more of
linux by using a different distro.

Arch is a rolling distro which means it updates packages more
frequently. It tends to be less stable and prone to bugs. In fact it
feels like users are testing packages all the time. It has excellent
documentation. Users are expected to read a ton and fix their own
problems. I do look forward on learning linux this way.
