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.

On 2 computers, I have installed Arch with KDEmod as a secondary. Arch is one of the distros to use if you like KDE4. Their KDE packages are clean, stable, and up to date.

On both computers, my primary OS is Windows. I still like that best for desktop computing - its graphical layer is just better than xorg with less advanced drivers. I like Arch as a secondary desktop OS because it allows you to experiment with Linux, and it boots up very fast.

For servers, I recommend Ubuntu server. Easy to install and administer. Arch just needs too much care if you are depending on a server, although if you have enough time, an Arch server could be quite interesting.
