In my free time I love to learn more about what Linux can do. Recently I learned about Arch Linux distro, which essentially lets you build and customize your very own distro. AWESOME!
I do have a couple questions before I even come close to going down that path though --
1, Would I be able to configure a untiy-like desktop environment from Arch? I'm so familiar with most thing Ubuntu that I would want tp stay close to it, plus I like the neat features it has
I was thinking maybe something with a lightweight desktop and a hidden cairo dock if all else fails, which would mimic the unity "hiding" launcher.
2. Could i keep a lot of the same packages and setups? I like being able to hit the forums with any problems and I've read that youre mostly on your own with Arch.
3. Can I configure Arch endlessly? i.e. build my own ubuntu?
4. The million dollar question here is, should i even bother with Arch? I am not an expert, I am familiar with Linux and I'd say I'm intermediate at best.
Sorry if this is in the wrong section, wasnt sure where to put this thread.
