    Am currently running HandyLinux and Absolute
    (obviously, I am not a purist).

    @Donald W Grimes -- the documentation at aptosid (once sidux) is also what makes this Debian 'Unstable' distro what it is -- try it out!

    I have heard that Arch does not come with a graphical desktop, text only... Is that true?

    No, The installation is done from the command line and takes a little reading to complete the first time. Arch supports the most DE's (desktop environments) that I came across in a distro, either officially supported or unofficially supported, not to say they have more or the most than others. Unofficially would mean the package is not precompiled in the Arch database and that you would need to download the package (script like form) from the AUR that would download the source and compile it locally.

    Arch has many pros and even a few cons BUT don't chose it as your first distro.

    Happy Linux'ing!
