"Speaking of simply and Debian, you got to try that new Simply Mepis 3.3. It rocks ;D."

Bah! Now you are talking oranges and apples! SimplyMepis is strictly a newbie distro. It is designed for a complete newbie to be able to stick in a disk and end up with a working version of debian - with EVERYTHING being done for you.

Archlinux is NOT designed for the newbie user. Nothing is done for you in Arch - you configure it yourself from the cli.

Frankly - SimplyMepis has already accomplished all it has to offer - a simpleton installer for debian - everyone's doing that now. Beyond that - it's debian. Debian is everywhere.

Archlinux is a completely other beast. It's designed for capable linux users, not people looking for the complete hand-holding experience.
