Can you guys consider to test ArchLinux vs. Fedora, Ubuntu, Suse, or other Distro. next time?
Many Arch Linux user seems to be very proud of their OS performance, and claims that the Arch is the fastest Distro. on the i686 system.
I wonder if that's true or not. I couldn't find any benchmark tests of Arch Linux on the interent...
Arch is fast yes, but the fastest are the source based distros, like gentoo simply because you can tweak your system to maximum during compilation.
