I disagree that the latest install cd is more difficult. The Arch Install Framework was nice, but now you get to install everything with pacstrap! Last few times I installed I thought it was exceedingly easy. mkfs --> mount --> pacstrap --> chroot --> nano nano nano --> grub-install --> passwd --> Done! Arch is often seen as a ricer's or hobbyist's OS, and I can't exactly say I don't fit that criteria, but it is still by far the best operating system I've ever worked with. It's very fun. It evolves to best suit your needs, the longer you use it, the better it tends to just fit you like a glove. I've developed a very thorough appreciation for open source software (with Ubuntu I'm not even sure I knew the meaning of the term). I would recommend Arch Linux to anyone ready and willing to learn, if they want to invest a little energy into creating their own personal Linux Nirvana on their machine. It will make anyone very geek-happy (or hopelessly frustrated, depends on how open minded you are Smile!
