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.

I love Arch, I've ran it on my main desktop for about a year and a half; on the same install and it's never out of date (unless I decide to let it go out of date). It's pacman that makes it so good btw; pacman is just a great package manager.
It's so simple that anyone with a little bash experience can manipulate it to do a lot without reading a fifty page man-page.
