Arch Linux turns 10 today. It’s pretty spunky for a pre-teen! Inspired by some fellow developers, I figured I’d post my (alebit short) involvement with Arch over the past 2 1/2 years:
I consider several of the subsequent mkinitcpio and pacman releases fairly memorable as well, but I’ll leave those off the list. I can honestly say that working with Arch has been an amazing experience. Ignoring the 1s and 0s, the people backing Arch Linux are an amazingly intelligent group of individuals, all with differing strengths working towards the same goal.
Having only picked up Linux as my daily operating system in the summer of 2009, I can honeslty say that without the flexibility and transparency that Arch offers, there’s no way I could have learned as much as I have in the past few years, elsewhere. Thanks to what I’ve learned I’ve become involved, to varying degrees, with other upstream projects. I’ve made numerous contributions to systemd, util-linux, and kmod.
I’m truly honored to be a user and developer of this awesome distro. Here’s to 10 more years!blog comments powered by Disqus
