It's also community oriented project, so it DOES RESPECT YOUR FREEDOM [unlike Ubuntu - which only gives you gratis product].
It means you are not forced to use anything you don't like and you always have choice.
By Freedom do you mean FSF newspeak?
But yes you always have choice as long as it doesn't conflict with their highly ideological view of software. See: Icecat
Arch is also cool, but it takes too much attention of the user. It makes you a constant tinkerer, and upgrades are in fact PITA
Did you try using it as a desktop? That was probably your mistake.
