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.

Arch and Ubuntu occupy to very different niches.

Arch looks to capture the Slack/Gentoo crowd, who like to optimize and can compile their own kernel.

Ubuntu is headed towards GUI everything, and no compiling of your own stuff if you don't want to. This is a good thing. Yes, it is. GUI tools can be good.
