Hi,

I've been using Linux since 1996. My first distro was slackware. Have
tried pretty much all of the most common distros, debian,
redhat(centos,fedora), gentoo, ubuntu, etc etc, also been running
FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, long list of OSs.

Now im on ARCH since 2012, still rollin' (haha), and i must say,
compared to everything else i've tried (including C64, VIC20, Spectrum,
Amiga, OS/2, mac os,solaris,Windows,VMS, Ultrix,IRIX, etc etc) this is by far the
most complete distribution/OS that i've ever tried. Fantastic
documentation, fantastic community, fantastic *. It really pushes people
into learning stuff the right way. By teaching the basics of the OS
platform and providing the tools to build on.

Arch linux is SOLID. All the way.

Teaching how to fish instead of giving away fish.

Thank you and i wish you all i fantastic 2017.

Cheers!

This is a good chance to express my gratitude too.
I installed my first arch back in 2003. Since then I am 100% arch, and
never looked back. University, home, work, sheeva plug, raspberry, servers,
desktops, laptops, ultrabooks. Even my father's computer now. With arch I
finally had both fun and efficiency, I was forced to understand and learn
loads of stuff. But actually... it just works. Well, most of the time, at
least ;)
In my small circle I try to push others to do the same.
For me it's a big, fat, huge THANKS! to all overlords, devs, TUs, regular
fellas hanging in this wonderful community. You rock, we rock, arch rocks.
Cheers,
domanov

Fantastic documentation, fantastic community, fantastic *.
A Linux distro is nothing more than a package manager, a repository, and a collection of community resources. I only realized this as time went on.

Arch excels at all three.

Let's not forget about Arch's philosophy, which is the whole reason I chose
it over all other distros.

"Keep it simple, stupid" ;-p
