Arch Linux

Abstract

Arch Linux is the first distro covered here that is targeted to advanced users and the first one that is a pure rolling release distro. It’s also not user-friendly, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming very popular. Perhaps its success lies in its simplicity, because Arch only gives you a very basic foundation upon which you can build the Linux you need or want. The other key to its fame is its appeal to the type of user who always wants to have the most recent version of any software. But none of this would be possible without the support of the impressive documentation and the great community behind it.
