Interview with Judd Vinet 16 years ago


"Arch Linux is one of those quiet and little-known distributions"

"And I've been told that Arch's documentation is less-than-perfect, which makes sense. But we now have a documentation maintainer with a greater gift for the written word, so it can only improve from here."

"Arch Linux is one of those quiet and little-known distributions, rarely figuring in the headlines of major Linux news publications. Fortunately, the recent release of Arch Linux 0.5 and a continuously evolving changelog present enough proof that its developers and package maintainers are hard at work. We have spoken to Judd Vinet, the creator and lead developer of Arch Linux and its "pacman" software management utility about the origins of Arch Linux, its special features, plans and other topics related to the development of this fine distribution."

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

In spite of systemD (wink-wink), Arch is still an impressive distribution with an outstanding support community and an EXCELLENT wiki!
