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.

Man, why you lying? Arch is not suited for "normal" people? That is so untrue.. because everything just works in Arch you want to label it "for geeks only"?.. That's nonsense. If you ask me Arch is much more easier to maintain and configure (one simple rc script which handles EVERYTHING) than all those bloated to maximum RPM based distros. Not to mention all those problems with dependencies there... in Arch it just works, a little naive you may say but actually it's true...
Because companies like Novell pump big money into their distributions doesn't mean they have the best product out there..
and most people don't know that actually they will run into less problems in the long run with distros like Arch than with Suse.
