Arch Linux Installation Guide

Filed under
Linux

This is going to be my attempt at a newbies installation guide for Arch Linux. This will be a "take you by the hand and lead you through it step by step" approach. Unlike most lead you by the hand guides that tell you to do this, and do that, I intend to also tell you WHY you are doing what you're doing. Hopefully this will be a combination of an installation guide, an Arch Linux guide, and maybe a general Linux guide.

As you delve into Linux, you will find it is TOTALLY flexible and customizable. You can make it anything you want. Well, almost. This total flexibility is the greatest thing about Linux, and it's the worst thing about Linux. When you get to the point that you understand Linux, that flexibility is great. For the Linux newbie however, the myriad of choices and options are overwhelming. This guide will help you install what I think is the best Arch Linux personal desktop solution for a beginner that's coming from a Windows environment

So why Arch Linux?
