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.

So many forget that one of the great things about linux distros is that you can pick one that's right for YOU. If you just want some no-gui, stable-as-rock server running backend, you may want a vanilla bsd 4.10 install. Despite all its flaws, Ubuntu really does have an easy and fairly hardware-accurate out-of-the-box install. If you don't like the boot time, pick something else. Heck, if you want easy install, try knoppix...hehe.

*please don't flame about my examples, they were just that...examples.
