 Arch Linux is an independently developed, i686- and x86_64-optimised 
 Linux distribution targeted at competent Linux users. It uses 
 'pacman', its home-grown package manager, to provide updates 
 to the latest software applications with full dependency tracking. 
 Operating on a rolling release system, Arch can be installed from 
 a CD image or via an FTP server. The default install provides a 
 solid base that enables users to create a custom installation. 
 In addition, the Arch Build System (ABS) provides a way to easily 
 build new packages, modify the configuration of stock packages, 
 and share these packages with other users via the Arch Linux 
 user repository.
