Arch Linux turns ten this year.
It doesn’t feel like I’ve been using it for very long. Then I check my pacman log and see the first entry: “installed filesystem”, 2009-11-04.
It’s been almost two and a half years since I’ve installed a Linux distribution! I used to love installing new distros, even if it was just an upgrade. Now I haven’t done that in a long time.
And you know what? I don’t miss it one bit. I love always having the latest software and no need to reinstall anything.
I keep Haiku installed on a separate partition. I’d love to use that as my primary operating system, but I’m afraid it’s not very practical at the moment. Until then, I plan on using and loving Arch Linux for a long time.
