== Suggestions ==
== x86_64 or amd64 ==
"Arch supports i686 and x86_64 while Gentoo officially supports x86, {...}, amd64, {...}, and itanium architectures."
x86_64 is the same thing as amd64, is it not?
:Yes, though Arch typically uses 'x86_64' and Gentoo typically uses 'amd64' to describe the architecture.  I'm not sure if it's more right to leave the article the way it is or to change it to use the Arch/Intel naming convention.[[User:TheCycoONE|TheCycoONE]] 14:31, 4 June 2010 (EDT)
== Frugalware fundamentally different? ==
''Arch is a fundamentally different system, being installed as a minimal base environment and expanded with pacman according to the user's choices and needs. Frugalware is installed from a DVD, with default software choices and desktop environment chosen for the user already.''
I am pretty sure that some time ago I installed Frugalware from a CD (250 MB or so) and got a minimal base environment that I expanded with Pacman according to my choices and needs. --[[User:Markus00000|Markus00000]] 16:23, 1 November 2011 (EDT)
== Style consistency ==
Some distro use bullet points while others do not. Make all of the bullet will make this page more consistency. -- [[User:Fengchao|Fengchao]] ([[User talk:Fengchao|talk]]) 00:45, 8 June 2012 (UTC)
== Mandriva -> Mageia? ==
Should we compare Arch to [http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=mandriva Mandriva] or to [http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=mageia Mageia]? The latter is more popular and is has been inclued in [http://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=major Top Ten Distributions] Distrowatch list in place of Mandriva. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 00:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
