    Hello

    I've only used ubuntu and wondering if someone could compare Arch with it and let me know if i'd like it. What are the differences?

    I'm trying to learn sysadmin type work so i'm doing a lot of shell scripting, learning perl and python etc right now.

    Thanks! I put it on my odroid single board. First thing I had to do was pacman -S vim :) Looking up differences between apt and pacman now.

    The Arch Wiki is awesome and really comes in handy since 90% of Linux info on the web usually relates to Fedora or Debian-based distros. Whenever I ran into Arch issues, referring to the wiki or the arch forums (https://bbs.archlinux.org/) usually provided an answer.
