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: No x86_64

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

There have been problems with QA on the packages in the past (in fact Eugenia was one of the big critics of this), but things have gotten better and continue to do so.

There is an x86_64 port happening right...NOW. ;)
