Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen several distros take the spotlight like Ubuntu and Fedora. However there is one distro which is occasionally heard about, but does not grab the media's attention and this is Arch Linux.
This review intends to touch upon Arch Linux as a whole and does not look into the installation procedure since they are covered extensively in the Arch Wiki.
Arch Linux was founded by Judd Vinet, a Canadian programmer. Its first release was in March 11, 2002. In fact Arch Linux is older than Ubuntu which came into existence in October 2004. In late 2007, however Judd Vinet stepped down and now Arch Linux is led by Aaron Griffin. One of the driving reasons behind the development of Arch Linux is a strong package management system.
