, I'd used the most popular Linux distributions, I'd started with Ubuntu and later OpenSuse, Fedora and Mandriva but I chose Ubuntu as my default system.
When I improved in Linux use I installed Arch and I was very impressed. Arch is the most flexible operating system I ever seen, truly powerfull, simple and customizable, but I had some problems when some drivers were updated. Thanks to Arch Wiki, is one of the best places of knowledge of Linux and I'd always resolved these problems searching there.
I got tired for problems of drivers, and I saw that Arch is not a good system for a developer, too many software changes, reconfiguring almost always the system after an update is very uncomfortable.
For this I elected Fedora and I install it in three partitions:
- The first is the smallest and I use to install the system. This is the root folder.
- The second is use to my VirtualBox VM.
- The third is my home folder.
When I have to update the system, I only formatting the partition of system (the partition of root folder) and reinstall my applications without lose my files.
