Arch Linux review...help?

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:

Arch's goals
Arch's install
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!

Re: Arch Linux review...help?

There are few reviews on topic "Tell a friend about ArchLinux!". It may help you.

Re: Arch Linux review...help?

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.  smile

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 smile.

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.  smile

Re: Arch Linux review...help?

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.
