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.

Frugalware, Ubuntu
by Anonymous on Mon 21st Mar 2005 13:21 UTC

If you want to try a distro that combines the good aspects of Slackware & Arch, try Frugalware. But since the introduction of Ubuntu/Kubuntu there's little reason to use any other distro. I really do believe that Ubuntu will unite the fragmentary "Linux on the desktop" scene around just one distro -- and I also believe that this will be a good thing. :-)
