Hi, exact same for me.
"old timer", don't want to be babied, don't want hidden nasty things to be done in my back.
I love the simplicity and straightforward way of Arch.

This is the perfect definition for Arch, and 100% adhere to it (extract from wiki):

"Arch Linux defines simplicity as a lightweight base structure without unnecessary additions, modifications, or 
complications, that allows an individual user to shape the system according to their own needs. In short; an elegant, 
minimalist approach."

Btw, could be nice to put it in on top of the archlinux.org home page.
