[testing] ArchBang 2.00-RC1

,----[ Quote ]
| Care to test the latest and the finest and the smoothest release yet? ;-)
| ArchBang now has an installer! Thatâs right! 
| Besides copy2ram, we are introducing an 
| installer with which you can install it on 
| your hard disks! Did we n00bify it? Are we 
| trying to re-invent the wheel? Are we making 
| Arch âeasier for the massesâ like most 
| graphical distributions? Heck no! We are 
| keeping Arch as it is! K.I.S.S all the way! 
| That old and familiar ncurses based 
| installer,we canât live without it!


Sabayon 5.2? Pulseaudio %$#* Flash amd64?



My typical archlinux desktop

| The more distrohopping I do, the more I
| realize Iâll never feel as comfortable as on
| arch. I donât like being forced to use
| applications or settings that other people
| think are the best, I have my own best, and I
| can only do that if I build a system from the
| ground up.


Arch Linux smokes all others. My Arch Review.

| Iâll continue to use Arch Linux as my main
| O.S. at work and weâll see how it adds up in
| the Long run.


Arch is hard to replace

,----[ Quote ]
| I didnât try out OpenSuse KDE, because I was
| curious about the GNOME version, thereâs no
| Ubuntu because I already had Linux Mint, and I
| didnât include Fedora although I wanted to,
| because Iâm a bit worried about my download
| limit.


Review: Arch Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve been wanting to try Arch Linux for quite
| some time now.  They seem to have a similar
| aesthetic to Gentoo in that the main mission
| of Arch is to build your operating system from
| the ground up.  You only add the things you
| need.  So you donât have any cruft on your
| system based on what some other people think
| you should have.  So letâs pop this CD in and
| see what happens!  (Iâm also following the
| directions on
| http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Official_Arch_Linux_Install_Guide)  The disc is the 2009.08
| snapshot.  I booted into the LiveCD.


Making the Switch to Arch Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I am really happy with Arch, although
| to be fair, I havenât been using it for more
| than a day yet. However, the documentation is
| great and the installation was relatively quick
| and painless, so I am pretty pleased at this
| point. I look forward to getting more
| comfortable with it and switching my other
| machines as well.


Getting Started with Arch Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Itâs hard to come up with an opinion about
| Arch, since Arch is what you make of it. I
| like that it gives so much control to the
| user when it comes to system
| configuration, but at times it feels like
| a little too much control. There are a few
| things that make you think âcome on, does
| this HAVE to be manual?â but the
| developers are clearly just trying to
| follow the Arch philosophy of giving the
| user all the control. In particular, it
| would be nice to have tools like hwd and
| aurbuild as part of the system, or at
| least available for installation through
| pacman. That may happen at some point as
| packages in AUR have a chance to be worked
| into the community repo eventually.
| Overall I think I like Arch and pacman,
| and I can see how it would make a great
| choice for systems that should be kept
| fast and clean.


Interview: Arch Linux Team

,----[ Quote ]
| A few weeks ago, we asked for the OSNews
| community to help with some questions we were
| going to ask Aaron Griffin from the Arch Linux
| team, and the response was glorious and
| somewhat phenomenal. We added those questions
| to our own and sent them on over, and then we
| were surprised by receiving not only Aaron
| Griffin's responses but answers from various
| individuals from the team.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
