Linux "Many Linux distributions have taken the path of easy GUI-based installation, in order to appeal to a broader mix of users. But not Arch Linux, which emphasises simplicity of technical complexity over general usability. Richard Hillesley explains."

For me arch installation was no big deal, the main thing I like about it is you can setup a workstation and not worry about you're distro to try and be `innovative` and impress you.

Its nice just to have access to the latest pakages and not worry about ubuntu's / fedora's new `direction`.

Btw, by KISS - I mean the system and package manager implementation, pacman for me is a lot faster then yum, making packages is also really easy.
