ArchLinux vs Slackware

Filed under
Linux
Slack

Since i have a one full week vacation due to national holiday in Indonesia (Eid), i decided to try ArchLinux to fulfil my promise to my friend. What a lucky me, ArchLinux has just released a new ISO few days ago that contains more up to date packages since they have migrated to the new Linux Kernel 3.0.x branch and that causes the netinstall ISO were broken, so they decided to release a new ISO. I downloaded this ISO and burnt it into a blank CD.

At first, i wanted to try it first on my Virtual Machine (I have Virtual Box and VMWare running on my machine), but that wouldn't reflect how optimum Arch is (i have read numerous article about how fast it is), so i decided to install it on my old laptop which has Fedora 14 on it. I haven't use the laptop for a while since i have a busy schedule this semester, so i think it's time to put a new Linux distro on it.

So, i installed ArchLinux on my old laptop.
