My own machines and all those at the CdM and CdS have been running
Archlinux for the last four or five years.
It's the right distro if you want to stay in control, but that means
you have to invest some time and learn how to set up things. For the
first install you'll have to do some things manually (e.g. partition
disks, install a boot loader etc.), but the wiki explaining all this
is very good. Package management via pacman is excellent and things
get updated rater rapidly.
Support on the arch-general list is OK, but note that the Arch devs
can be on the arrogant side if you ask questions but fail to read
essential documentation first, or if you question their wisdom.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
