"You can, of course, just build Linux from source code, or use a
distribution such as Gentoo or Linux from Scratch (LFS) that relies
heavily on Linux source code. Those distributions though are best
left to developers and other people who know their way around
programming. Arch Linux, on the other hand, is suitable for Linux
power users who still prefer the command line interface (CLI) to
GNOME or KDE.
"Believe it or not, there are still people who find the CLI to
be the most comfortable way to get the most out of Unix or Linux. I
should know. I'm one of them. It's not that Arch doesn't let you
use a GUI; it's just optional."
