As I use Arch on my laptop and Debian on my servers I am familiar with both. I would always go for arch (arch like) on desktops because of the bleeding edge software in comparison with debian. Not sure which strategy to choose for the phone. On one hand I want to use it as daily driver asap on the other have all features and some stability.

At the moment for me the biggest issue with Arch/Manjaro is lack of encryption support right off the bat. However as much as it does work on Mobian I run into lack of software/lack of AUR which reminds me why running debian on desktop isn't best option (for me of course). I do notice Manjaro (phosh) being snappier and somewhat more stable then Debian, but lack of encryption is a thing (perhaps the difference in speed comes form the encryption).
I wonder what others are using and if they do use their phone as daily driver. I want to make the decission asap so I can focus on building up my setup instrad of distro hopping.

Arch has a script for full disk encryption now:

Yeah I'm already on it for last couple of days, building up my portable sysadmin terminal / smartphone daily driver. Thanks for the tip though. Hope others will find it easier. I did have my phosh restarting on me few times lately. Not sure what causes it. I need to get familiar with all the inner-works before.
