think the question differs from person to person : what is stability?
general here it runs stable , mayby got issues but its not so much.
in time in arch things change and need manual intervention but thats not a part of a stable because things change and need to move a bit. does not means its unstable, its just keeping a eye of arch news. sometimes we find also things out and will notify everyone.
a newer kernel can always have some bugs offcourse its always wisely to have a linux-lts beside the linux kernel. each first point release of a new kernel version can be edge. but does not mean arch is more unstable on other distro’s.
A rock solid system in its core, so it is indeed a rock solid system core, this excludes stuff running on top of it like X-system.
So the system itself will boot 99% and the 1% left will be easy to solve.
But sometimes you need to fix stuff running on top of the base system, like apps you are using the DE or X-Server stuff like gpu driver and connected framework.
The “GUI” stability (what you do need to get your business work done mostly) depends also hugely on what you do with your system. If you are tinkering on every little aspect of your DE theming, performance try programs refining everything e.t.c.e.t.c this will brake your system much more often. If you take what you get, do not use AUR stuff that much system DE and X will be stable as a rock and if something brake solution will be fast and easy (mostly someone will post the solution here in short time)
Haha, no I won’t not at all. I am just asking about basic office software like LibreOffice, Thunderbird, Dolphin & Co., because I would be a little bit annoyed if this stuff fails every week due to unstable updates.
My personal experience is that I have far better experiences with rolling distro over leaping in general and with Arch over other rolling distros specifically. Even Manjaro is way more unstable than Arch for me (counting EndeavorOS as Arch here due to using Arch repos and more importantly the Arch kernel).
I also want to point out that rolling distros are not Unstable. The distinction should be Leaping or Rolling, not Leaping and Unstable.
As for manual intervention: this is true, but if you run an Arch based distro you should be able to copy detailed instructions from the Arch homepage. The most difficult part of Arch is install and config. If you get EndeavorOS, Archman, Arco or Manjaro installed and configured to your liking you should be able to handle that. Not to mention if you install pure Arch.
Personally I use a RSS reader in Firefox that checks the Arch news channel.
