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 think it is important to get the one that works for, and you are comfortable with it.

I have tried Solaris, FreeBSD and other Linux Distro, not sure how to play/decrypt DVDs. It is very easy with Debian. debian-multimedia.org provides everything I need.

I have tried Solaris Linux and FreeBSD Linux, and I just wasn't that impressed. I have selected another Linux, which I will not explicitly mention, since I do not want to seem to be playing favorites, here.
