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.

Yes this is nice, but Debian-based distros are only slightly more difficult, unlike Fedora or Suse where you have to download the new ISO's, burn them, then do an upgrade.

Not true. At least in Suse you can point yast to the latest version on the ftp servers and do a complete upgrade or just update selected packages.
