Talk:Arch compared to other distributions
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. --Markus00000 16:23, 1 November 2011 (EDT)
Mandriva -> Mageia?
Should we compare Arch to Mandriva or to Mageia? The latter is more popular and is has been inclued in Top Ten Distributions Distrowatch list in place of Mandriva. -- Karol (talk) 00:38, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
