Arch Linux for the DIY Linux user

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 70.162.138.52] on July 17, 2008 07:31 AM
I've been using Arch for well over a year now. I love its tweakability without having to deal with any insane setup-times. I recently created a fast-boot system on a high speed solid-state drive using Arch, and it rocks. From grub to fully loaded(!) desktop in under 15 seconds. Tip: You can use "@" before any daemons on the list in /etc/rc.conf to make that part of startup run in the background, great for anything that is not critical but takes a while to load.

While I love Ubuntu's ease of use, for pure customization without frustration no other distro can beat Arch.
