Nobody said that, for several users, including myself, Arch is easier to
use, than Ubuntu.

Back to the topic, if a user wants a tailored install, then the
chosen disrto could be important, but more important is the policy of
the distro from different points of view. It's possible to customize
an Ubuntu install to fit to individual needs, e.g. it's possible to
purge network manager. Switching to another distro not necessarily is
useful, especially if one distro provides LTS releases and the other
distro is a rolling release. Instead of switching to another distro a
user should consider to do a minimalist install or to chose an Ubuntu
flavour, assumed the issue with a default Ubuntu is related to the
software that is installed by default. Choosing another distro is
useful, if several aspects of the different policy fit better to a
users needs.
