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.

Yoper might be more optimized, but have you ever used Gnome on it. Oh wait, you can't, my bad.

Ubuntu more optimized? How do you get more optimized than KISS?

Vector... yeah, maybe. But it's not i686 optimized is it? It's just a more stripped down version of Slackware.

Once again, someone posting without doing any research.
Yoper is only easy until you break it, which means installing anything that isn't related to Qt/KDE. Ubuntu IS easier, until you want to modify something on a low level, or install a custom made package. Vector is Slackware, so it's about (+/-) as easy as Arch.
