    This last year I used Fedora 10 both at work and home. I used Gentoo for 5 years before that. I still much prefer Gentoo for the control and how clean and simple it is, even if Fedora is easier to install. I don't mind installing Gentoo since it's something you do once, but installing on many different machines binary distributions win.

    Just recently I finally installed Arch on a test-machine, and I really like it! Pacman is super fast, and like Gentoo it KISS. Will definitely use Arch more in the future, but Gentoo will always have a special place in my heart as well as on my hardware!

The pacman package manager has many similarities to Debian's apt-get that should not be too hard to make the switch. Too many things broken in Debian now, so I am considering making a distro change soon and arch is on my list
      This, the pacman rosetta page, is also generally helpful when coming from another distro as far as package management is concerned.

        Thanks, that's a pretty good comparison of how to do many common operations with the most common package managers including pacman

        Bookmarked that page for reference in future.
