Sadly, that is the Apple solution, buy buy buy...

I don't get it: surely you need to program in C and assembler (not C++) to understand the kernel?
(They let me out on alternate Thursdays so long as I have been good.)

I think I got stuck in an endless
"... try another distro ... "

You mean there's an exit to that loop?! Where!? <..:eek:..>

Distro-Hopping Exit (http://www.archlinux.org/)
Seek, and Ye Shall Find. :D

Um...maybe that ain't it:

Darn, where _is_ that link. (Before it starts a flame war, please note the date it was posted)

1) I don't use Banshee, nor will I (mono). I have no idea what "linking consistency" means and I doubt the op does either. My original Arch install from Jan. 2009 is still my main system. And the "nvidia blob" driver, which comes as a regular update (no pseudo-independent repo required, nod nod, wink wink), works fine with my 3.3.1 kernel.
2)Due to circumstances beyond my control I have to replace the OS on my desktop computer, which is currently Arch, to Windows 7. I have found Arch to be an experience and has vastly increased my knowledge of Linux in general.
...the install went smoothly after about 10 minutes I had installed an Arch system.
...Once done I had a gui which amazed me because in the time it ok[sic] to install Windows 7, I had a fully working Arch machine with exactly what I wanted on it. This was probably one of the biggest selling points for me, you dont get crap with Arch, if your system becomes bloated its your own fault. Arch Linux is the definition of a lean and clean system.
3)Thanks for 5.5 years of loyal service, moving to a stable release distro (work) ...I'm forcibly (work related) moving to Ubuntu LTS
If those are the worst things you could find about Arch... you're not trying, Bob. :D

That was a good one.

Cripes! There are only 23 people using Arch (by my count) so yeah, that's all I could find. :D
Okay, got to be serious and say that Arch is an excellent distro that's able to be configured just the way you want it, so it's one you're likely to stick with. Good 'nuff...the search ends there.

I'm on record here as believing that Arch + Fedora = the best of all os worlds. (And I also suspect that Leigh is still lurking nearby with his 12-bore, so no more Arch proselytizing from me)

Sadly, I don't think he is. <..:(..>
