Introduction Proposal

The introduction:

This page summarizes some of the similarities and differences between Arch and other GNU/Linux distributions/UNIX-like operating systems. Please note that the best way to compare Arch to other distributions is to install one and try it yourself. Arch has a wonderful user community that is always willing to help new users. The summaries below are meant only to give you enough information to decide if Arch is really for you.

As it is currently, I believe the introduction implies partiality when stating that 'Arch has a wonderful user community...'. Please note, that I don't disagree with this statement, but I do think that a person that is not part of the community will be led to believe that this article may be bases on that statement. I would suggest:

This page attempts to draw a comparison of similarities and differences between Arch Linux and other GNU/Linux distributions or UNIX-like operating systems. A good way to compare Arch Linux with other distributions is to install them and to try them for yourself. The summaries below are brief descriptions that may help a person decide if Arch Linux is something they would like to try.
