I’ve been going back and forth about making this thread in my head and decided take a chance and make it. Mods I hope you don’t mind that I went ahead and turned this into a poll from the start because I’m anxious to know the outcome.
Poll Question: should the net-tools package be included by default in live ISOs?
My Note on it I recently had to use it to ssh to my windows machine because I needed to get my machine IP because I had to backup stuff before reinstalling and my machine only has one usb port. Although it’s trivial to download it via pacman it makes logical sense to be added by default since it acted as a rescue tool in a way.
P.S. For those who say “Why not just use timeshift?” Answer: that’s what broke it trying to restore a snapshot. Might have been because when it asked to reinstall grub I said no but I’d be surprised that caused it to break since it already had grub on it.
Closed the poll to due to learning about the arch replacement of the package.
