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: i wanted to give it a try

I was able to get Arch up and running on my Toshiba Satellite Pro 490CDT. There was some problems but I have most of them worked out. The first problem I had was trying to get it up with XOrg using S3/VirgeMX driver. This will just not work. Instead I went with Generic VESA and it works great. Sound I am at a lost because I have tried compiling from source and still cannot get it to work.

All in all it is a nice Distro and I look forward to seeing more come from it.
