Arch lands

… on my laptop. Well Arch Linux 0.8 (Voodoo) came out on March 31, and I have been itching to try it out. So one fine morning, I booted with my new Arch install CD (full version) and wiped out my beloved Gentoo. Now after a day of using it, I’m definitely impressed.
Soon, I’ll write a detailed post on how I set up my Arch box, but the main points I liked about this new Arch release, is the installer, which has gotten a lot better, and now includes dynamically loading packages from removable media you have attached while the installation CD is in the drive, and of course Arch’s simplicity.
Long live Arch and keep it simple stupid! 🙂

  1. Thanks for your input but i’m kind of stuck in a little bind here.
    I can’t decide which distro to try. Either the new Slackware 12.0 or Arch. Wanna move from my simple minded Ubuntu to a little challege.
