Well, looks like I don’t care so much for Windows 2000 either. Arch is back, so the situation has now completely reverted back to the way things where before my laptop hard drive crashed. I guess I’m simply prepared to sacrifice some of the ease of use and pulchritude (in terms of fonts) Windows provides, for the incredible speed and efficiency that Archlinux provides. And along the way I have discovered that I really don’t like Ubuntu that much, but to each his own. Also, I’ve discovered a little thing called ntfs-3g, so I can fully use my external NTFS formatted hard drive, and which can be made to function with pmount by editing one xml file. Will post my luck with this method soon.
