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 used Arch when it was in the 0.5 - 0.6 stage, it worked well for me, took a bit to configure. But then as someone mentioned earlier I started worrying about upgrades breaking something. Now that was over a year or so ago, so they may have fixed that up now.

After that, trying to find a new distro, I did the whole distro install marathon, install a distro, try it for a week or so, install the next, and so on. I am now on Ubuntu, not because its "cool", but because it just worked, and that ended the marathon. I am now running it on my AMD64 and it works great.

just my 2 cents.
