I'm planning to move to ubuntu 16.04 as I have in home, since I'm something
like tired of reading the words "not supported" .. but I have a lot of work
to do before I can format my machine there... So, it will be arch :)

I was just notifying that I have never had problems with arch being "not
supported". The packages needed there, and the ones that can't be found at
binary repos can be found at AUR, so, arch works just fine.
