Linux The ArchLinux Release Engineering Team announced the official release of the 2009.02 ISO after a long period of intense development. This distribution is among the first to officially support the new Ext4 filesystem. I've always noticed that Arch seems to be quite popular among OSNews readers, and I'm interested to know from our Arch users: why? What makes Arch such a good Linux distribution?

Arch used to be my favorite distro..but since it's bleeding edge, there were issues after an update with the intel driver/kernel combo which made 3d performance suck. I switched to Debian which can be installed from a base system and customized like Arch, but with a bit less risk of an update breaking something.

btw, anyone know if intel 3d performance is fixed with this release?
