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.

Just a short note, i recommend this distro to everybody. I had a similar "shuffle", and yes i feel too i've found what i was looking for. My priorities was (mainly in this order): stability, good package management (at least like apt), uptodate packages (unlike debian), simplicity (i never liked /etc/rc.Xd and such), user/developer community (arch has a really friendly community as i experienced), i18n packages for kde (as i'm recommending/instaling it for customers too). Arch is ok in everything for me. And now it has an awesome live CD (w/ knoppix like auto detection, and - important - a REALLY working hd installer, which copies the needed kernel modules and X config and everything else too! ), which only makes it better.
