Linux "Many Linux distributions have taken the path of easy GUI-based installation, in order to appeal to a broader mix of users. But not Arch Linux, which emphasises simplicity of technical complexity over general usability. Richard Hillesley explains."

I believe you are referring to Crux Linux. It was based on Slackware and Arch if I'm not mistaken.

Arch is a pretty good distro but I haven't used it in some years.

The ports system in CRUX was not based on NetBSD's pkgsrc. It did however use CVSup from FreeBSD, back when the ports tree was stored in CVS, which is no longer the case.

Also, it is the other way around. Arch was based on CRUX, but I guess now days there's not much resemblance between the two.
