"Most users who like FreeBSD or Slack would probably like Arch Linux"
That's certainly true. I'm a FreeBSD guy and briefly tried Arch a little while ago (gotta peek over the fence now and then ;-), and indeed I felt right at home on the console -- their pacman was really the only tool I needed to "learn" and that was drop dead simple.
I'd say this is a very nice linux distro for those who sorta know their *NIX and want to have a full featured DE set up quick and easy though still customized to a large extent.
I must say that when I read that the hardest things are packages that don't compile (with or without the default toolchain being used), being used to FreeBSD ports I tend to shrug (as in: that's normal). But that's ok. The concept of a distro is different anyway.
Very interesting reading!
