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.

A total waste of man-hours.


I don't know what you do with your time but it's likely a lot of people would consider it a total waste of man-hours. Similarly you might consider whatever I do with my time a total waste of man-hours as well.

The important question here is whether Arch provides something other distros don't. IMO unlike a lot of distros it does.

As the devs say in the interview, wheels do get reinvented from time to time. So be it. On the plus side we end up with a huge choice of distros to play with til we finally find one that fits us perfectly.

Unlike the Windows and Mac OS worlds Linux users have choices. This is a good thing.

I'm not an Arch user but I've nothing but admiration for this distro and the people who make it.
