Thank you, feend! First, it's fast, the install is straight-forward (reminds me of slackware), you only install what you want/need, and pacman is niiice. I forsee long, moonlit evenings with Arch Linux.

"Coyote Linux is a single floppy distribution of Linux that is designed for the sole purpose of sharing an Internet connection." :blink:

The features that stick out most are Pacman and ABS (Arch Build System). Pacman allows you to install, upgrade, and remove binary packages locally as well as install from package repositories. It does simple dependency resolution and also allows you to search packages for what files were installed and what package a file belongs to. ABS is like BSD ports. You cvsup the latest current and unofficial buildscripts (or maybe another development branch if you're so inclined). The build scripts make building and compiling a snap.
