    Lol, I still cringe a bit everytime I do a pacman -Syu and reboot, why I don't know as it has never let me down. Just today my downloaded updates were about 170MB and as per usual things just work afterwards.

    This distribution is superb...everything I need..and everything works. I think it's the perfect distro for an experienced Linux user.

    I think I might pop in to see the release version of Hardy..but I am not as excited as I would be, tbh.
    I too have found Arch and like it -- though I am not a big fan of KDE.

    I am in a debate over Debian v. Arch. I like Arch because it is much more up-to-date that Debian stable and I really like Pacman.

    There is no default.

    Arch is very light and barebones. You install what you want, which is easy with its package manager.

    Well, since KDE is just one of many choices, use what you prefer. I use Gnome on my desktop and Fluxbox on my laptop.

    Actually, I think Arch users prefer quite a wide range of desktops. Xmonad and Awesome seem to top this month's screenshot thread in the Arch forums.
    the last time a "what is your desktop" type thread was run, I think Gnome came out on top by a small margin.

    Hrm...I don't know about that; Yes, kdemod is one of the big reasons that Arch is gaining users at an almost apocalyptic rate, but I find that there are a lot of *box/wmii/dwm/awesome Wm users as well.

    I think it's actually built of CRUX and Slackware, with a bit of BSD-like init scripts.

    The best description i've seen of Arch is

    "Arch is Linux with a great package manager"
    My blog | Arch User | Linux user #439142 | Ubuntu user #10974

    I've also noticed many arch users use tiling wm's. Including myself. But that's because I find it extremely handy, and I used the WM on ubuntu as well. However, like said, the arch install comes with no DE, not even X. You entirely choose what you install and whatnot.
