Arch-Linux

Morning Guys, 

Working on my ICND 200-105. Once I have that complete, I am going to start on my CompTIA Linux+. 

One of the guys at work has mentioned Arch Linux, which I have had a dabble with. Would this be a good study tool for Linux+ or should I focus more on a standard distro like Ubuntu? 

Thanks

    Honestly I'd stick with Ubuntu, CentOS, SUSE, or Red Hat. Stick to more mainstream distros that you're likely to find in use in a corporate environment.

    Probably not because Arch uses pacman for package management and I bet Linux+ sticks with Debian's apt (or maybe Red Hat's yum). So it will make your learning experience more complex than it needs to be when you memorize commands for the multiple choice exam.

    Just stick with Red Hat or Debian based OS'
    The Linux+ exam does not use Arch commands or their "standards"
