    Take the CD outside and roll it down the hill.

    I placed my Fuduntu Live USB stick on an incline, but so far, it has proven to be surprisingly stable.

    I stick to what I call the "big three"; Ubuntu, openSUSE and Fedora.

    Some people take one look at the Beginner's Guide and instantly know whether Arch is right or wrong for them.
    But once you have installed ArchBang, then you just have Arch. From there on, you do learn pacman, AUR, rc.conf, etc. ArchBang just gets you up and running quickly, nothing more.

    Fair enough; my dislike of the ArchBang artwork/aesthetic may be clouding my objectivity. If you had personal success with Arch without following the Beginner's Guide then I respect your testimonial.

    This is the way I went for testing out Arch. I think going the openbox route was the best way to go for sure. Completely usable out of the box, but small enough that it does not crowd up your system when you install another DE.

    As far as rolling release go I was also thinking about trying PCLinuxOS (maybe not true rolling, but closer to what I want). The only thing holding me back is no 64-bit editions, which is just crazy... it is ******* 2012.
