It really pays to be promiscuous with different distros. In the end one never knows which ones will even be around (or have a decent developer community) in 5 or 10 years, so flexibility can be a great asset.

That's actually one I worried about with Arch before. I love Arch and the philosophy, the package manager, AUR, everything... but it's a pretty small dev team compared to others and honestly could go under at any time ( though it's been around 10 years now, I've been with it for more than half of that time ). And while I like RHEL, Debian, and a couple of others ( I just don't love them biggrin.gif ), there's just nothing in them that can really replace everything I get with Arch, at least in my eyes.

Though, it doesn't phase me. I'm pretty good with RPM based distro as I am with Arch, so if the worst did come, I can move myself over to RHEL, Fedora or Cent with no problem.

I don't like the prices, however they do make a good solid product in terms of OS. I'll stick to that.
