Linux The ArchLinux Release Engineering Team announced the official release of the 2009.02 ISO after a long period of intense development. This distribution is among the first to officially support the new Ext4 filesystem. I've always noticed that Arch seems to be quite popular among OSNews readers, and I'm interested to know from our Arch users: why? What makes Arch such a good Linux distribution?

I had the same issue, just switched to Ubuntu. I couldn't get my Quake 3 (!) to run smoothly without artifacts. The only thing that worked for me war recompiling X and mesa/dri from source (sic!) with different versions than provided with Arch. BUt amount of time I had to invest in doing so was too much for me to handle, so I just dropped this distro. Seemed like no one else - say Arch developers - were interested in fixing this issue in reasonable time, so I gave up.
