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.

Arch Rocks
by lilsirecho on Tue 22nd Mar 2005 21:26 UTC

I have been on Arch for almost two years, started with 0.5 and have advanced along the way to 0.7wombat.

If it is a "geek" OS that makes me a grandfather-greatgrandfather geek at 80 years old.

I enjoy Knoppix, PCLinux, Puppy, UnionFS,klik,kde, slackware,KnoppixDVD,Helix and "archie LiveCD".

I am a noobie by any stretch and a noobie can be an "expert" trying a new program for the first time!

I even discovered an animalistic device while googling..it is called COWLOOPfs..copy-on-write!!!!!
