Arch Linux 0.7 Released
Eugenia writes "Here's the new generation of advanced Linux distros in the face of Arch Linux, featuring the simplicity of Slackware, the package management qualities of Debian and the speed of Gentoo. Version 0.7 of Arch Linux was released today (installation notes) and it features the 2.6.10-as kernel, while the -Current and -Extra software repositories include all the latest versions of software including XFce 4.2, Gnumeric 1.4.2, AbiWord 2.2.3 and more. Recently, I wrote a head-to-head comparison that might interest many, between Arch Linux and its nearest neighbor, Slackware."
