Man, I've missed Arch

Installed Manjaro yesterday and everything went better than expected

All of my hardware was detected properly and installing GNOME was quick

As much as I like apt, pacman is just sooooo much faster

Windows is a much more reliable primary OS. If you need to use Linux, just run it threw a VM.

Please tell that to hardware compatibility.

And what does that have to do with reliability?

It has everything to do with reliability. I want the guarantee that my OS has stable drivers for whatever I am going to be using. Linux still doesn't have stable/reliant wifi drivers for rtl8172u and I've had the card for 2 years now.

So instead of using a piece of hardware that you know works with Linux, you persist in using one that is known to have driver issues and then call the OS unreliable because of it. That's dumb beyond words.

No I'm just a cheap ass and don't like to fix my problems.
Plus, I would still prefer Windows, I used Linux as my only OS for 2009-2010. Would never go back to that again because of how horrible their UIs are. Gnome blows, KDE blows, whatever the hell #! is using in my VM blows...

I prefer what Windows 7 has, that's why I haven't changed my OS in the past 3 years. What's so wrong with that?

There is nothing wrong with preferring Windows 7. I use Windows as my primary OS, too.
What is wrong is you calling Linux unreliable. It's not unreliable. Yes, it lacks a lot of the hardware support that Windows has, but you saying it's "unreliable" because you can't find a driver for your hardware is incorrect. That's like blaming the screwdriver for trying and failing to screw a screw with the wrong bit. Change the screw or change the bit, but don't blame the screwdriver.
Your issue is one of compatibility, not of reliability.
