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.

NO x86_64

Any distro that doesn't support x86_64 OS doesn't have a chance at being the "Next big thing"

Seriously, amd64's are so cheap there satruating the market like coke/pepsi so until a distro supports 64bit compuitng it's not that big.

I have used arch and it's ok, BUT the Q&A on packages is terrible, bugs are plenty and again, NO amd64 support.
