Arch Linux for the DIY Linux user

Good article, though your readers definitely have their favorite distributions and they never let their criticisms go unheard.

I think that I need to finally get around to trying Arch Linux. Though I appreciate the intelligence brought to the community by such distributions as Fedora and Ubuntu, I do enjoy doing things myself. Because I don't mind satisfying dependencies and compiling some of my own packages, I stick to distributions like Gentoo and Slackware. From what I gather I would feel right at home in Arch.

Thanks for the great review. :)
