Arch Linux

I truly like Arch Linux and the more I use it, the more I like it. Before installing it I was concerned I wouldn't be able to find the packages in the standard repository of Arch and I'd have to compile them from sources, unlike in Ubuntu where most of the packages can be installed by apt-get install xxx. But it's turned out to be a false assumption and later I've found out that Arch Linux has a tremendously higher number of packages in its standard repository. It's way more and it's always fresh -- up to date.

Not only that, installing a package from the community repository of Arch rarely causes errors of any kind. On top on that, Arch has AUR -- Arch User Repository -- where new packages that haven't become popular enough yet are found.
