I have been using Linux in various forms since college. I started with Ubuntu in 2005, then moved onto Fedora for a while on an old laptop. Having used Debian at work for a while as well, I have grown tired of distro after distro bloating with package dependencies with default installations. Arch and its community seem firmly entrenched in the idea that this is wrong. I hope to get acquainted and fall in love with yet another Linux distro.
