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.

Eugenia, thank you for your comparisons with other popular distributions. It gives me a sense of what this has to offer in comparison to what I'm using and what I've used, so I can put it in the proper context. I can look at what advantages it has over distributions I like, and think "gee, are the advantages worth the switch for me?" In this case I'd say firmly they aren't worth it for me, so this review gave me the sense that Arch is really good for certain groups of users, but isn't exactly what I'm looking for. I learned and saved time... something to keep doing in future reviews, well done.
