It's a little weird installing and updating packages by eating dots
while avoiding ghosts, and my own muscle memory is more attuned to
apt-get, but I'm getting used to it.

Actually the most annoying part of Arch's package system is the "AUR":
user-contributed packages approximately equivalent to Ubuntu's PPA
repositories, except not nearly as nicely integrated with the rest of
the system.
