I understand how frustrating it can be.

I use to chat with a guy in Debian Testing and he explained that running Testing and unstable can be very challenging to fix things.
I think it took him like 9 years to get really good at running Debian Sid:-

Hang in there it's inevitable, eventually the devs will fix it:-
Oh i see that's the reason why debian is considered awesome linux distro and also the oldest one and i love debian and debian derivatives except ubuntu since it is a little easier to use but i recommend every new linux user to use ubuntu first although my first linux was debian
Wish i would also be able to help them i wan to but I can't

Yes definitely and i appreciate all their hard work and that's why im still on parrot and i wull be on parrot for quite a long time since i at last found a linux distro that fullfills all my needs also i have used kali in past blackarch is what ill test when i get high speed internet running back up in my area apparently i heard arch being one of the difficult distro but i don't think it would be difficult to use since we all know about linux distro and i want to use arch based distro to see why they say so
Good luck with Parrot.
Sorry I don't know how to fix that bug--

Arch Linux can be challenging to run until you get to know the package management system and know it well.
Slackware won't hold your hand either. I ran it for 9 years:-

Looking at Parrot, Kali Linux and Black Arch I too; like Parrot the most:-

If you'd like you could join the Debian IRC Channel or Debian mailing list to talk with devs and other contributors. You never know you may end up talking to a dev.

Debain is rock solid as is Slackware.

Have you found that XFCE has some things missing?

X

Xfce is quite basic i prefer kde over everything since it is the most customisable de out there
Agreed-
KDE is nice however; it's a RAM hog:-

Think I'll download Black Arch this weekend and give it a spin in VBox.

Jeeessse- Black Arch is 13 GB! o_O

I hope there is a way to fix the rendering issue with Parrot.
I've been looking but haven't found anything yet:-

650 mb isn't bad--
Doesn't Arch have to be configured from the command-line after a fresh install?

I thought so-

Slackware is the same way and it didn't hold my hand.

I would have to read the Arch documentation first before installation.
No if's and's or but's about it:-

Good luck with your fresh installation.

I hate it when partitions get messed up by accident-

Glad to hear your dual boot works.
Enjoy your Parrot Linux.
