I'm working on putting together a review of AL .4 for possible web publication on any site that'll take it. But, as you may have noticed, I'm a bit of a newbie.
I'm planning on touching on the following things:
ABS, package optimisations and pacman (maintaining an Arch system)
Running X in Arch
Then strengths, weaknesses
And a sort of verdict (ie, what Arch is best suited for, overall quality)
Now, my question for those here at the bbs: what have I left out or what do I need to touch on that I may overlook? Feel free to mention subjects that may be containted within the above headings, because I may not be grasping all the aspects of Arch's awesomeness.
The going may be a bit slow on my review, but I hope to draw a bit more attention Arch's way!
well it is a nice idea, i got one question for you.
At which site it will be put ?
should it be extremly long or just a review with out going in to the depth?
Freedom is what i love
Thanks for the replies, guys. I think it's gonna go up on Distrowatch, because they seem to be booming right now. I'm not totally decided on that site yet. It will be fiarly in-depth, but I don't have to go into incredible techy detail...I'm kinda waiting to see how it turns out.

What I am noticing with Distrowatch, its only holding the first paragraph with a link to the full article (review) wherever you put it up. I suggest you contact Distrowatch once you decide.
Lets hope your review will help Arch Linux to rise higher on Distrowatch list. Maybe not competing Yoper, which became # 1 within two months, but to same level (or above) as CRUX Linux .
Well, distrowatch does have several full reviews on the site. But you've brought up an interesting point: if I'm whoring myself out for exposure, why don't I post the review on another site, then just send the link to distrowatch's maintainer. I'll also send th URL to every known Linux site in the universe.
[OT] what's Yoper all about?[/OT]
apt-get install arch
yoper is a joke imho. i know people who have tried it and of those people i know no one who has switched to it nor anyone who actually likes it it is just a novelty right now as it boasts something no other distro has, which i personally think is its weakness.
I am not your friend
