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.

I like Arch but

I wouldn't complain about dependencies issues and say Arch is perfect. I love the distro, but there are occasional dependency problems. For example, when they went to KDE 3.2 you had to upgrade with the --no-deps option.
Arch is definitely fast. I found a noticeable increase in speed of RH9, very noticeable especially with a lot of apps going at once.
Now I can watch a dvd while I compile and chat with no glitches or slow response ;) .
