Arch Linux

Arch Linux - Magic of GNU

"The box said ‘Requires Windows Vista or better’. So I installed Arch Linux"

Inspired by CRUX, another minimalist distribution, Judd Vinet started Arch Linux in March 2002. Arch uses a BSD-style init framework, a tradeoff of flexibility for simplicity. It also includes and permits use of System V runlevels and the inittab file, but there is little differentiation between runlevels.

The design approach of the development team focuses on simplicity from a developer's standpoint rather than a user's standpoint, elegance, code correctness, and minimalism. A package manager written specifically for Arch Linux, pacman, is used to install, remove and update software packages. Arch Linux uses a rolling release model, such that a regular system update is all that is needed to obtain the latest Arch software; the installation images released by the Arch team are simply up to date snapshots of the main system components.

Advantages of Arch Linux: users like speed, flexibility and a good package management system - and Arch offers it to them. Plus rolling release and nice community of developers and fans. Configuration is simple, but still effective.
