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.

RE: arch is ok, but ...

Huh? Are you serious?? Arch is the fastest distro to set up I've ever used (which is the main reason I use it). A clean install can be done in about 5 minutes... Configuration/installing packages after that can take a little longer, maybe 10-20 minutes depending on your knowledge and Internet connection, but 6 hours??? I don't know how it can take you that long...
