Arch
by Tim Barber on Sun 16th Jan 2005 01:03 UTC

Normally, I try to keep my posts "on topic", but I feel the need to say something about ArchLinux. I keep seeing people talk about Arch in that broken packages are abound. I have been using it for over a year, and I have never experienced any broken packages.

Maybe because I only have installed on my machine what I use, or that I only update my machine one a week.
