Arch Linux has won the Free Software Award for the Most Consumer Friendly Linux Distribution. Aaron Griffin recieved the award from Richard M. Stallman and Linus Torvalds at the LibrePlanet conference at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
"The purpose of a GNU distribution is to make it easy for users to use GNU systems. It's a stupid idea when you have to compile everything from scratch," said Linus Torvalds at the event."The reason I never liked or used Ubuntu was that you have to compile everything from scratch."
Arch Linux beat Gentoo this year. Last year Gentoo won the coveted 'Most User friendly Linux Award."
