[Q] Why the name Arch Linux?
[A] From dictionary.com
1. Chief; principal: their arch foe.
2. Mischievous; roguish: an arch glance.
I came across the well-known term "arch-enemy" in a book and
clued in that "arch" means "the primary", "the principal", the one
that comes first among others. Far from true with regard to
Arch Linux perhaps, but I'm proud of it. Now, the second
definition may or may not fit; I guess it depends on how you use
your computer. ;)
