"Out of the box your new system boots to a terminal and that's
it. Installing even ssh or X is left to you. If I were to summarize
the total Arch experience briefly, I'd say it's user-friendly if
you know what you're doing.
Most questions I've had have been answered by their extensive
wiki, which has been consistently good. Everything I've needed I
found with simple Google queries: e.g. [arch ssh] brings up the
wiki page that decribes both how ssh is installed and what you
might want to configure.
