You seem to want to use a distribution made safe for less skilled
users. Why do you keep wasting our time suggesting to make Arch
something it's not meant to be???

If Arch doesn't fit you needs you shouldn't use.

If package updates and restarting a daemon is hard to handle for you
should really think about this. You seem to hold the record in the last
months for silly questions about updating and using our distribution.

If you think you need a list of packages to remember where you should
interact, go on and create one your own.
