Anarchy Linux, the distro formerly known as "Arch-Anywhere Linux" has changed my tune about the terrors of Arch-based Linux as a suitable operating system. In general, however, Arch-anything presents a challenge that may not be worth the effort for typical desktop needs. A potential trademark violation forced Anarchy Linux developer/maintainer Dylan Schacht to rebrand Arch-Anywhere, his homespun distro. To his credit, this Linux distribution has much to offer in terms of user-friendliness.

Nice little review of Anarchy Linux.
Anarchy is a (semi)-automated Net-Installer of Arch Linux.
I'm not sure why people use a review of one distro to fanwave their own other distro's ?
Clearly, discussion should be regarding the Author's review of Anarchy Linux here.
If ppl want to comment about antergos, manjaro, ..., then comment in those specific articles, or write your own.

Anyway, Anarchy Rules !

I haven't read any of your previous articles about your travails in the world of Arch but from here I don't see any mention of Antergos, which gives a super easy and intuitive installation and Live ISO experience.

For newbies, Mankato is a perfect Arch to start with and the installation is even easier than Ubuntu in my humble opinion.

Also, they both come with a decent number of pre-installed applications that should get anybody other than those that want a pure vanilla experience(and this can be accomplished via the Antergos installer).

As I said I haven't been able to find your previous articles and if you've covered these two already I humbly apologize and request the links.

It's not clear to me what there is to recommend Anarchy over Antergos.

Meant Manjaro* sorry.... Autocorrect...

Read through your other articles. Interesting reads I must say! In the couple of years since you reviewed Antergos and the 4 since Manjaro a lot of good things have been done, especially with Manjaro.It is completely mature and newcomers can get up and running with it ASAP. Looking forward to following more of your reviews.

Would you move to a tech hub like San Francisco or Seattle if you were offered a high-paying, career-building job?
Absolutely. I already live in a tech center and I enjoy being where the action is.
No. I live in (or have lived in) a tech-forward city, and I'd rather live elsewhere.
I'd be tempted, but I'm worried about the cost of living.
I doubt it, as I don't like the reputation for decadence in those cities.
I would if I didn't have so many ties where I currently live.
Why bother? With telecommuting you can live and work anywhere.
