>>Arch on android phone

Am not good with computer, how do this.

Honestly if not good, then don't. However, if you still feel compelled to do this, I'd read up on documentation and what not. Boring, but it should teach you what you need to know to accomplish things. Perhaps even Arch on Android.

Yeah, I know, it was just a joke, I'd be fine doing  an arch install.

but protip, run it manually (.sh script) beacuse official method often doesn't work

Manjaro, mainly because of the OpenRC support(systemd is just plain terrible), and is Arch yet(alright, just a bit).

For servers i just stick with Alpine, but i prefer OpenBSD/FreeBSD over it if i can for this purpose.

If its a 2004 Laptop it should even be able to run something like Debian or Fedora with xfce or lxde. Depends mainly on the amount of RAM you have in that Laptop

I use Arch Linux primarily and really love it.. Until it breaks once every 9 months. :(

I might switch to Gentoo so I don't have to worry about updates fucking something up as much, but I just like Arch Linux so much.. Yet I'm too lazy to always read the patch notes. ;_;

Kali Linux for everyday uses.

Especially for hacking.

Why use Kali for everyday use? .-. .. It is a very specialized distro made for pentesting and security adhering. Even the developers themselves recommend people don't use it for everyday use. It basically has no default support for anything non-related to security. I mean.. I guess if you only want to learn and practice pentesting while browsing the internet then it works, but it just feels unnecessary when you can put it onto a USB and just use it whenever you need it and primary Debian or something.

Nothing like a linux thread :)

I'm using Arch Linux, though I'm pretty much distro agnostic.

At the moment I'm using GNOME Shell but I'm pretty tired of its strange window management so I was thinking of dropping into Cinnamon or maybe even something lightweight like OpenBox (with tint2 is how I used to do that, and a bunch of scripts to automate window placement ;)).

Fedora. Bleeding edge as Arch but more stable.
