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?

Are you sure you are not confusing it with Caldera? That was the one with the Qt-based installer / tetris.

Arch's still a text mode install.

Well that's embarrassing. I think I was thinking of Ark Linux ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ark_Linux ), not Arch. Haha ;)
