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.

Arch linux isn't really just a general purpose linux. It's base install is very compact and runs pretty well as an embedded system.

I could say the same thing about Slackware.


Shared libraries allow different people in different locations to develop the software.

The shared library system isn't needed to allow that.

Many of us don't even consider large gigabyte drives useable and only use little flash drives for the system.

Oh give me a break, even 8 gig flash drives are cheap these days which is plenty of space.
