First off: I LOVE Arch Linux. It's the one I've learned the most from. The lack of a decent installer (CLI as suggested here?) kills the whole thing. If you have some users running the thing and there's a crash, forget about a quick re-install with the latest one. At crunch time, setting up an installer and letting it do the install (semi) unattended is a must. Where did my update go wrong? By using the wrong console. I had a remainder of my Gnome desktop still around after I moved to XFCE, the Gnome terminal failed to save the Kernel path properly, thus I was left with a dead system. Arch is NOT for the beginner. Arch is (IMHO) the better distro around, if you want to learn Linux, not if you need a quick-ready desktop...

Installed it on one of my test systems, the install went without a hitch. At the time I needed to quick-test somethng on a clean install. Other than Arch that needs wall-to-wall attention during install, Ubuntu takes you tru the usual "questionaire" (wizard) and does its thing - by itself. My setup blocked when I had to set the screensaver, but that was maybe due to the box, rarther than the OS. Tested box : Compaq E51/1G/80G - the video MAY not have been configured right, that's all... All in all THE step-in OS if you need a good first-time impression of Linux, and a keep-this if you stay into Linux...
