I am an experienced GNU/Linux user. After being constantly bombarded with dren from systems like Ubuntu, Fedora and openSUSE which try to do everything automagically, I have discovered that Arch Linux doesn't break nearly as often when I try to do interesting things with it, like install another window manager (because that's such an insane thing to do! O_o)
Anyway...I use Arch Linux as my primary system, all other distributions bow down to it as mere playthings. Except they're covered in lead paint and kill your brain cells. I have Arch on three systems:
On these systems I run GNOME 3, which runs better here than I find it does on Fedora. Lovely.
I'm a video game-programming hobbyist who has an affinity for data storage. I choose Arch Linux. 'Cause it's frelling awesome.
