Linux After reading a discussion on DistroWatch asking if users were happy with their current distribution, I noticed a common thread of those who have had similar experiences as myself with juggling various Linux distributions. Like myself, they feel many Linux distributions are great, but no one quite feels like home. None of them quite fit the bill and they may even begin to think that every OS sucks.

Yes, He Seems To Understand

Welcome to Arch, Andrew! Interesting review. There's a certain balance of countervailing factors that Arch seems successfully to achieve as you've obviously discovered. I note in your review a tendency to discourage anyone but expert linux hands from trying Arch, which I consider unfortunate. I've been using the distro happily since last August but would hardly consider myself a linux expert; an intermediate user perhaps but not an expert. I'd encourage anyone whose had familiarity with the Reddrakes and the Manhats and who might be seeking to expand his/her knowledge of Linux to try Arch.
