Ran it on the desktop on and off during my Linux desktop days, and on the server when I still ran servers in-house (again, intermittently mixed with other server distros.) Lovely mix of spartan base install & near-upstream package layouts, compiled for modern hardware by default (back when this even mattered) but with a very easy custom-build system, and a decent package manager & rolling release system. I often describe it as the love child of Slackware, Debian and Gentoo.

What can I say, other than this is the most configurable operating system ever. I've made it my primary OS which I expect it to be for many years to come.

Started out as a very minimal arch that could run off a usb stick, to run off my roommate's broken laptop, and fell in love with very minimal X installations with a tiling wm ever since
