" I personally think it isn't as easy as Slackware, but that doesn't stop them being similar."


What you talking about? Arch is definetly more simple than Slack:
1. rc.config (one config file to handle everything, kinda similar to FreeBSD)
2. pacman is much better and simpler than pkgtool (handles dependencies, keeps system up-to-date, removes unneeded packages WITH their dependencies and so on)
3. building packages is simpler: ABS

Now please tell me what's simpler in Slack?
Basically I don't know a better distro right now, it definetly ROCKS.
