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?

These Arch-based projects defeat the purpose of Arch's KISS philosophy. What's the point? Just install Arch. It's not that difficult. Even if you are an intermediate/advanced user you should be using the Beginner's Guide, which lays out everything you need to know.

And if you are a true beginner, it is a wonderful exercise in learning the linux way, and I would not hesitate for a second in recommending it to someone who has never tried linux before.

Print the Beginner's Guide- install it. Love it. It's that simple.
