Arch Linux for the DIY Linux user

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.187.222.233] on July 17, 2008 12:22 AM
As an ex-gentoo and ex-Slackware user, I can confidently say that Arch is king. Installation is quick, binary, and no tedious stage 3 compiling.
Documentation is absolutely terrific. Hat's off to the author of the Beginners' Guide especially. Along with the FreeBSD handbook, The Arch Linux Beginners' Guide is the most perfectly written and presented, high-quality document for unix I have ever read.
I've only been using Arch for 6 months, but in that time it has proven to be clean, stable, predictable, quick, and most importantly, it stays out of my way.
Great review!
