I disagree with your source. If anything, Arch Linux is aimed at
experienced Linux users, who at least know the basic ins-and-outs of a
Linux-based operating system, and can solve their own problems (either
by first-hand knowledge, or by researching). That's not to say that
newcomers to Linux can't use Arch, they just shouldn't expect to have
their hand held and be spoonfed solutions to all their problems.

Arch has no aims to be popular.
