Never had an interest in either the actuality nor the philosophy espoused by the Arch crew. However, on advice, took a look at Archbang, yesterday. Well, fast it certainly is. However:
- it has less apps and not all it has are as comprehensive as Puppy, even though the .iso is four times bigger
- the default resolution didn't fit my 17" Dell TFT and couldn't find a utility to change it (liveCD). Looked around for something in /etc/X11 but couldn't find an xorg.conf and none of the other files, inc. 'hidden ones' had what I needed. [Allegedly, it requires a major remodelling of the non-existent xorg.conf file.].
- some utility asked for a default password. I didn't have half-a-day to spare looking through their FAQs, Fora, etc. All other distros clearly show this default on first live CD boot-up. It shouldn't be necessary to search or Search for it. Eventually, I did find it via a Google! [it's U/N 'live' P/W (none) - this didn't work either!.]
- what convinced me to abandon this offering, though, was the thoroughly nasty sentiment expressed by someone (from Sweden? most uncharacteristic) on their Forum to several quite reasonable enquiries.
Goodbye Arch and clones.

Thanks for that, a. Was unaware. Was prompted by their release of yesterday.
