It's been a long time coming, but here it is! E'rything is runnin' on ol Archie. The two draws were 1) I heard it was "difficult", and 2) all the software is up-to-date by default from the repo. I'd always heard of Arch Linux, often found myself getting answers for other *nix questions on their board. What I've found since has been truly astonishing!
