Arch Linux Review

Simple, clean, and easy to understand...
[Arch Linux is] a cross between Slackware and Gentoo, with the stability and simplicity of slackware and the speed of Gentoo. Packages are i686 optimized unlike its i486 optimized cousin, Slackware.

The philosophy of Arch is simply simplicity. The user is in total control of the system. There are no flashy GUI installers - only a simple ncurses based installer that is easy to use and does its job well. No services ae started by default and their rc.conf is a thing of beauty - very simple to understand and maintain.
