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."

It's funny how I got modded down by -2 in my first comment, doing the PROS and CONS I thought of Arch. Let me tell you something, I was being really fair and good.

I did not mention weird bugs in installation, like that:

Where do you want to install Arch?

/dev/sda
/dev/sda1
/dev/sda1
/dev/sda2


So it's time to wake up for reality here. Arch is good, but its philosophy won't make it better. I'm pretty sure any user using it will be amazed on how control he can have on the system, however he will be tired by the 36th hour tweaking it.
