Linux "If you follow Arch Planet, you may have already heard the news that we are celebrating a decade of existence, with the release of 0.1 Homer on March 11, 2002. If you haven't already, grab some birthday cake and head over to Arch Planet to read several developers chronologies and wonderful words of praise for Arch Linux. There is also a brief article from The H Open Source as well as discussion on Reddit. With good fortune and a little luck, hopefully we'll be around to celebrate another 10 years!" Happy decade, Arch! My water cooker just pinged, so I'll drink the next cup of tea in Arch' honour.

Wow, didn't realize it's been out that long. Been using it on and off for about 4 yrs, give or take. Decent distro for the most part.

AUR is still a cesspool, though. =P

Yeah that's pretty much the same amount of time I've been running Arch aswell and the only thing that would pry me away from it would be Haiku becoming useable for my day to day work (which sadly is far off in the future).

As for AUR I've had no problems with the packages I've used from there, I think that for a user repository the packages are of a high general quality YMMV and all that.

Depends on what you're comparing it to really. It's definitely a handy expedient vs manually compiling, but it's certainly no FreeBSD Ports or NetBSD pkg-src consistency wise.
