"2. Arch Linux--possibly the most optimized binary distribution available. Similar to Slackware in structure, but simpler than Slackware in what it comes with--not a whole lot. This is not simple as in newbie simple, it is simple in terms of containing only the basics; you add what you want and put together config files yourself.

Advocates say that it is easy to install initially, is fast, and has the same advantages as Gentoo. Detractors complain about quality issues, some of the same complaints that I've heard with Gentoo."
