I've used xubuntu so far in my unix journey. Now I'm changing to Arch Linux. Wish me luck.
Ook.

*wishes luck*
This is how I install Arch:

Code:
1. gdisk /dev/sda
2. delete / create partitions
3. format the partitions
4. pacstrap /mnt base base-devel
5. arch-chroot /mnt
6. vi /etc/locale.conf & uncomment the US lines, then locale-gen
7. ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York /etc/localtime
8. pacman -S grub-bios, grub-install /dev/sda
9. mkinitpcpio -p linux & grub-mkconifg -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
10. exit, genfstab /mnt >> /mnt/etc/fstab, umount /mnt, finally... reboot

Good luck!
arch isn't that hard i'm sure you'll be fine.
Tonight I am going to install
either slackware or exherbo.

Which sounds worse:
A complicated package manager or a very bare bones one?

The installation process used to be simpler.
You did the exact same thing as the commands but by selecting options from a menu. Too bad they removed it.

You've reminded me that I *really* need to install crux or openbsd. Even arch isn't barebones enough nor configurable eventually (Also systemd)

I'm reinstalling Arch tonight.

Well, a little more complex than that.

I created system images for each of my computers, and home servers. They're all going to be more integrated than they were before.

It's why I love Unix.

Edit; If you end up hating systemd but loving Arch, take a look here http://systemd-free.org/

I'm in. I made it. After about 4 hours of experimentation and reinstalls I have Arch with xfce. I'll report back with some ricing later.
