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.

standard files?

"For more configuration, you will have to use /etc/rc.local or the utilities' own configuration files, e.g. /etc/conf.d/pcmcia.conf, or udev's configuration files, or /etc/conf.d/wireless etc. There is definetely a learning curve in there, but Arch is using default file settings and so you won't have to learn distro-specific tricks (as it is very common for the Debian subsystem or the main RPM systems)."

How are any of those "default file settings"? If you install pcmcia-cs from source, it puts its configuration in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia . What's /etc/conf.d/pcmcia.conf got to do with default file settings, then?
