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.

By what was written in the article, it could have easily been titled "Arch Linux, why it sucks". Seriously, what Eugenia was describing as assets, could just as easily been described as liabilities, depending on the user. I mean, having to spend all that time editing config files, and downloading software, can be a major pain in the rear to many people.

And I don't see Arch being much faster, if at all, than other highly optimized distros like Vector, Yoper, and Ubuntu, all of which are much easier.

Oh well, to each his/her own.
