- You have atom in community (which means binary) and 6 versions of atom in AUR. 2 of them are binary - hence "-bin" at the end of the package name. And there is a git version, that pulls directly from git. Of course you can't use pacman, you have to use yaourt or pamac if you are into gui tools.38w
- But, isn't Manjaro focusing more on KDE Plasma? 😕38w
- Yeah, but the default one's KDE Plasma, isn't it? Like Ubuntu having Unity 7 as default, but flavors with many other desktops38w
- Some facts, that you've got wrong (IMO):
" the release schedule of Fedora is unpredictable"
As you write yourself (some lines below): Fedora has a fixed release schedules of about 6 months. Okay, there may be delays of one, or two weeks (there usually are), but they are required to iron out installation blockers.
"Google was giving Chrome for Fedora ..that wasn’t working for months"
Never seen any problems with Chrome on Fedora, assuming a proper installation using Yum, or DNF. And, btw: How's that related to "Community support"?
Community support: "Fedora? I politely pass!"
You are aware of ask.fedoraproject.org - Questions - Ask Fedora: Community Knowledge Base and Support Forum, a really helpful site, are you.
Upgrades: "This approach for a desktop is ridiculous."
I admit, that rolling releases may have advantages. But calling the alternative ridiculous? That's, at best, biased, and neglects the disadvantages of a rolling release. (Btw, are you aware, that Fedora offers a rolling release, too? It's called "Rawhide".)
In summary, that's a lot of (insert unfriendly word with four letters here), and mostly unrelated to the presumed topic. (Gnome).36w
- I didnt say there are unreasonable delays, I said there are delays. A delay is a delay. Not cool :)
When Chrome, or Steam or NVIdia don't work due for example SELinux issues (even if the issue its on app itself), and aren't fixed for weeks, then, it is shows poor community support. Community support, can be the whole world, NVIDIA, and Google and Valve are part of community support. Not just users.
Fedora (or Ubuntu etc) not even aren't rolling releasing (updating) the core system (which lets say is okay), but they dont even update the applications (the user land in general), they dont even close bugs that upstream are fixed.36w
