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.

Re: Packman

Does Packman have a GUI? Apt-get has synaptic Slapt-get even has one. Yes command prompt can be handy, but for browsing and tagging numerous packages for various operations a GUI is a must.

It's PACMAN, not packman!!! ;)

There's not a true, full-featured GUI yet, but pacman is set to be libidized soon, so GUIs should start to appear then.

But there are some limited-functionality GUIs posted on the forums now, though.
