Re: Arch sails past: Lindows, Libranet, Sorcerer, Turbo, Vector

if you mean with "smaller" = "less known", i agree, but you cannot hinder people find out how good it is ... that's the problem!!

Re: Arch sails past: Lindows, Libranet, Sorcerer, Turbo, Vector

I am an arch junkie - don't like to share my stuff. I fear, the higher arch raises in the top linux distro ranking, the more people will ask for help, rumble for attention, flame this and that, demand straightforwardness and gui.

Therefore, we should unplug the web pages, the wiki, the bbs, the newsletters imediately - or change their adresses weekly - hourly. Instead, let's meet each first full mooned night of a month, to whipser about arch.

Pst, don't tell anyone, it's a secret...  big_smile

Re: Arch sails past: Lindows, Libranet, Sorcerer, Turbo, Vector

It's unanimous then, Arch should be unpublified!

(unanimous in that the people that disagree won't know about it :-D)

Xentac has to be banned and outlawed, unfortunately, for blabbering out the darkest secret: the name of our secret distribution, whose name should never been spoken or written. Pray for him.

You mean in in terms of a secret or that we all agree? Whatever, you are the druid, will you accept the vote?

Re: Arch sails past: Lindows, Libranet, Sorcerer, Turbo, Vector

lol I am sort of inclined to agree. I played around with gentoo about a year ago, before it really took off. The community is rediculously bloated now, it kind of sucks.

If arch is becoming so much more popular, why isn't anyone joining the forums?
