I recently decided to make a permanent switch from Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope x64 to a more sophisticated and feature rich Arch x64 Linux.  I have started building and installing Arch from the ground up, everything from the Desktop EnvironmentWindow Manager, Drivers, Themes, etc.  The process begins with downloading burning the Arch install .iso or .img file to either your a blank CD-R or my case a Flash-Drive.  I chose the Flash-Drive option to avoid wasting yet another blank CD.  Although burning it to a blank CD-R wouldn't be a total waste because Arch Linux is utilizes an upgrading feature know in the Linux Community as a "Rolling Release," whereby the user is only required to install the Operating System once and when an upgrade becomes available one can choose to upgrade without fear of "breaking" the system.  This method, of course, is NOT full-proof but and has it's ups and downs to the traditional Linux upgrading methods that I will not be discussing.  Arch maintains a wonderful website and wiki containing vast amounts of tutorials and help files to ease the installation procedure.  The website and wiki don't just stop there; they also provide many tutorials on post-installation steps, tips, tweaks, and much, much, more.  [stop]
