As a recent Arch convert--or more to the point, someone who's trying it for a second time--my boot time is ridiculously fast. Since it's a desktop, if it's going to be powered down overnight, I go ahead and shut it down, so boot time matters. It takes longer to log in and wait for GNOME to start up than it does to get to GDM. Also, setup was (imho) much easier than it was when I tried out Arch a couple of years ago.

I get many of the reasons why people don't like it, but imho the pros outweigh the cons.

"at any employer."

That is why you're not having a problem. If you have employer-provided healthcare, you don't have to worry about preexisting conditions. And now, under Albatrosscare, you don't have to worry about them on the private insurance market either.

Somebody will manage to explain to me why this is bad someday, I suppose, but I sure haven't figured it out yet.

No.

Not application backwards compatibility. Apple does not control that.

I'm talking about upgrading handsets to new OSes. Who does better than Apple?

Kay. From my perspective as a user, it was pretty awesome.

Good point. And, for my money, I prefer Apple's approach to Android's. We may get to the point where screens are high enough resolution I don't care about pixel accuracy, but we're not there quite yet.

Isn't it cool that there are several competing options in the market? I think that's a win, don't you?

An optimist believes we live in the best world possible; a pessimist fears this is true.
