If you are like me an want to try ArchLinux, but were discouraged by its awkward installation program and the complex task to convert the base system into a usable desktop, here is a new option for you: Arch Linux Office Install CD: “This CD installs a complete setup of Arch Linux distribution. No ‘configure’ is needed except to prepare hard disk, set mount points, and install the LILO boot loader. Also no post configure. Once installed, you can start working with popular Linux programs for office, Internet, and web development. If you are new to Linux, this installer is a good starting place to begin.” It comes with Linux 22.214.171.124, X.Org 7.0, KDE 3.5.5, and the usual open source software applications.
