Arch for a beginner isn't the best idea. Things will break and the poor guy will be left with a non-functional OS and not enough knowledge to remedy it. It might be a great distro (and I agree) but it isn't suited in this case.

Maybe Antergos or Manjaro then? I didn't have a single crash with either of them, I used antergos for about 2 years on my laptop. Main benefit is the archwiki and AUR, now I can't be bothered to add custom repos manually anymore

Manjaro is a pretty good one.

 

This conversation reminds me of this old meme:

Wow you do have a point :D Arch was my third distro and I hated it at the beginning.

Quite easy to forget all the headache, it thought me a lot about how my system works

 

Never lost a .rc though, maybe that's fixed now

 

 

Note to op: Try any main distro with gnome or kde, you can always change the de later
