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.

Really great OS - simple, modular, fast, stable, fresh ... the best you can get!

I used to use Slackware, Debian and Arch in the past, then I moved to more automated distros, but I am just fed up with unpredictable nature of this automation.
New daemons, huge applications, little choice ... and you have no control over it.

Recently I installed Arch again [took me whole damn day to get everything the way I want] and it is definitely worth its time setting up.

Happy B-Day ARCH! Thanks to all Arch community members! Best wished to all o you, guys and gals.
