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 actually meant the great advantage of x86_64 is, most distros who support it contain a x86_64 kernel and most packages are compiled for x86_64 out of the box.There is hardly any need for optimized CHOST/CFLAGS anymore and or compiling everything from source.
