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.

That's because i386 is a 17 year old arch, and i686 is a 9 year old arch (plus i386 doesn't necessarily have onboard float if I remember correctly). Plus, Intel copied AMD's instruction set almost exactly for 64bit; which is sad because I almost hoped to see someone try and use this opportunity to maybe help kill x86 (but noooo!).
