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.

I must say that Arch is a great distro. It runs really snappy on my old Thinkpad X20 with just 192 megs. I also tried Ubuntu 5.04, but had the problem, that my network card was'nt found by the installer. Of course Arch needs a lot of things that had to by done by hand, but with the great forum it's possible to get all up und running (as in my case).

Of course we should be realistic in that point that Arch isn't a distro for beginner! But it's vary funny to make it running. Great distro and an awsome forum with an huge ammount of informations
