Spent the whole day installing and customising Arch Linux on my desktop. All I gotta say, its FUCKIN’ AWESOME!! Arch (pronounced arch as in archery) is a lightweight, modular distro, aimed at slightly experienced Linux users. It allows you to customize the whole OS how you want. You start with a base install which provides the core requirements to run a OS and install what you require on top of that.
This was the winner for the best illusion of the year 2010.

She is hampered in her efforts by the minor inconvenience that she doesn’t have any actual computers to run her code.
