Advantage and features of Arch LinuX
  

Hi I am planning to have arch linux on my machine, and I have heard about it too much like about its robustness and the stability among all other alternatives. And I think this is the most stable distro according to the sources, I am recently using the Ubuntu, I want to know the benefits of these, and the mainly is arch linux update their repositories often or do they work on the backport method like Ubuntu? Thanks in advanced.

See the most darker side that I say is like it requires too much time to install and really that is the awful thing, but if we do not consider that part then it is too good, and off course very easy even though you are the beginner of the LINUX, but that?s good as you have already used the Ubuntu, so after installing this one, you?ll surely get a very good experience with this also. And you can have too many option for using this, such as it is a common point GNU/Linux distribution, which is extremely modifiable, according to you may like it.

some of the advantages know to me that I would like to tell you like arch offers a negligible upbringing upon installation, and it is especially compiled for i686/x86-64 architectures. And the basic feature includes it is lightweight, lithe, trouble-free rather I would say simple and to be very UNIX-like. its design ideas and execution make it simple to expand and shape into whatsoever type of system you are structuring and most importantly from a inconspicuous console device.

It will make you available very enhanced and rich desktop environment that you ever had before. And once you essentially install it , you can simply advanced everlastingly. You don?t have to stay for the subsequent edition to obtain all the latest packages and features, they move toward as soon as they are out. You can make configuration in each of the package that it use due to its bleeding edge, and I have also heard that they have made too many serious changes in this.

I would say I am a huge Arch fanatic, I would say Pacman and ABS are the managers through which you can get binary packages commencing servers. And the most important thing is like you can completely advance your system with no a drawback with it. For instance, the Arch disk arrive with GCC3.2.2. and if suppose you want to enhanced it to GCC3.3, you can do it with very ease.

If you just look at the good side of its then it is really dangerous as there are too many weak points also in the arch that make you doesn?t use arch at all, they are like you must have to have an Operating System that aim a dissimilar user base. And along with that you must necessitate sustention for a structural design other than either x86_64 or i686. And for the security you must sign each and every packages.

Hey I was actually worried about the kernel only, but I would say at last my worries put an end as I was capable to advanced kernel completely as well, and after that the system works well. And after this they have another feature that?s ABS that will let you permit to just compile and build a package. presently look through correct directory of the program in /usr/abs and type 'makepkg' and that will download first and then compile package.
