Conversations Hello, all.

We've secured an interview with the Arch team, and this time 'round we want the input of you, the readers. We want to know what it is you want to know from Arch, and so we'd love it if you would input any questions or even ideas that may lead to questions in the comments below. We'll thoughtfully consider them and be sure to include as many as possible when finally conducting the interview.

Thank you all in advance.

In the OSS ecosystem, we can see certain distros being popular for specific niches (for example: Debian and RHES on web servers, ubuntu for the desktop, etc). Have you observed any popular or emerging niches for Arch Linux ? What niche do you think Arch Linux is best suited for ?

One of the most noteable charaterisitcs of Arch is its rolling release model, which assures users that they will always have the latest and newest version of a program available. Has this model brought any noticeable disadvantages ? (for example : programs that depend on older libraries who aren't on the system anymore because of an update)

Arch uses the PKGBUILD system to make and compile packages. What does the future hold in store for the PKGBUILD system ? Are there any new features or modifications that are planned ?
