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?

Pacman is simple and fast, and configuration is simple and sane. Ubuntu/Debian are fine when you leave it to them (and it works) otherwise it seems like a mess, IMO.
