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.

First of all, I have not read the article and don't plan to. I am sick of the little fangirl posting the millionth Arch review. Arch may be nice, but it surely does not deserve a daily glowing review and I do not appreciate having it crammed down my throat.

Well, it's not being rammed down your throat, it's on a website. Maybe you're hallucinating? ;)

And no, pacman is not any easier than apt-get. And if you like pacman better than Synaptic, there is something very wrong...Synaptic is almost for the brain-dead.

We're talking pacman vs. Apt-get, not synaptic. Both apt-get and synaptic are awesome, but Arch has a different philosophy. KISS.
