    so far i'm finding it a lot more painful than debian, but thats mostly because arch doesn't seem to have a decent graphical installer and i accidentally installed the FULL kde desktop, not the minimal, so i had to wait several hours for that and i'm spending a good hour uninstall most of the stuff. once i'm done setting everything up i'm sure things will get a lot easier. i just hope my old settings will still work in this newer software.

    One big noticeable change is the boot time. It goes down from minutes to seconds.

    The installer experience changed a little from early versions, you will want to use Expert mode because the Normal mode assumes way too many things

    The moving of blobs to non-free means some trouble if you use netinstall (will prompt you for firmware blobs); Example: Sata/Raid/Ethernet controller for some servers.
