    Gentoo, anyone? With Sabayon they have a standard compilation and kind of a current snapshot of portage to test on, isn't there any Arch based distribution Michael could use?
    With the invention of RPMFusion, that's all you really need anymore, besides flash from the adobe repo, but I use Chrome so no need.

    As for an Arch based Distro, he could use ArchBang, although I've never tried it because I'm not a fan of OpenBox.

      a arch based distro with KDE 4 desktop would be Chakra. I never tried it, because I don't like KDE much.

      Kahel OS
      is also Arch based, and uses the gnome 3 desktop. The last time I tried it was in the beginning of 2010 with gnome 2. It was not a bad distro when I tried it. I think I had it on my computer several month or at least some weeks as primary system.

        Chakra is not based on Arch Linux. The first non-Arch based Chakra version was released almost two yeas ago and they are not compatible in anyway anymore. Chakra is working on their own package manager called Akabei and they are planning on moving to systemd (altough same could happen to Arch too). It is half-rolling release distribution so it's not as bleeding edge as Arch and so on and so forth.

            Another choice could be Cinnarch;

            http://www.cinnarch.com/

            it's a young Arch-based distro with Cinnamon pre-installed.

            I don't know much about it, but i would imagine that they haven't changed too much, so it would likely be a good candidate

              Oh cool, i didn't know about Kahel OS. I'll have to give it a shot sometime, as it might be better than using fedora.

              Thanks for the info!
