Arch Linux 64bits

Ok, as opposed to Fedora Core 6 --which is still my core desktop--, Arch doesn't come with a preconfigured "hybrid system", so all I use right now is purely 64 bit. That, of course, makes it impossible to see flash movies or wmv, for example. But I really don't miss all that.

Arch has a really great package management system, it is really fast and consumes so little memory that one hardly notices that Gnome is running :)

It has also a great community and really fast updates; but don't expect to find things as acpitool or too much support for extravagant hardware though.

It's definitely a must for anyone used to Gentoo or such minimal systems. :D
