Linux 2003 was the year with Gentoo written all over it in the Linux universe. Last year was Ubuntu's & MEPIS'. I believe that Arch Linux's year is the current one. Read more for a comparison of Arch to existing distributions, and why we think it rocks and where we think it still requires some work.

Some thoughts about some packages
by Andrea on Mon 21st Mar 2005 12:22 UTC

Weird that only apache 2.0 is supported in the packages.
Most of today webserver are still running apache 1.3 so I think with arch you should install 1.3 by yourself ;) .

On another note rails, rubyonrails, is not supported too.

Ubuntu and Debian does not support direct installation of J2SDK, J2RE from packages due to their policies.
Arch it does support it.

Hope that JEdit will be supported soon with Arch.
I remember a topic in the forum asking for it.
