Original OSNews Interviews A few weeks ago, we asked for the OSNews community to help with some questions we were going to ask Aaron Griffin from the Arch Linux team, and the response was glorious and somewhat phenomenal. We added those questions to our own and sent them on over, and then we were surprised by receiving not only Aaron Griffin's responses but answers from various individuals from the team.

Aaron Griffin: I think that people are getting tired of Linux distros trying to be more Windows-like. People see all this automation with 100 links in the chain, only to see one link fail and bring the whole thing crashing down around them. With Arch, they gain awareness of the whole chain, not just the tail end that they see.

This is perhaps the best description of Arch Linux. It brings awareness and transparency to its users. Whereas many other distro's attempt to create an environment that is best suited for one or more particular purposes, Arch Linux provides you with the tools to design and build your own environment.
