arch does not need mass adoption. it functions with a few contributors due to its simplicity.
one can use the distro he likes, and does not have to like arch cause "its getting more attention these days"

which is cool. personally i didnt like arch until they fixed most things (arch has some years behind its belt now). whats cool is how they kept it simple at the same time, so far
