I think tamikan just said that in other (and fewer useless) words: "best is subjective."
Tamikan stated: "Best is subjective therefore it cannot be universal."
"The best for me isn't necessarily the best for you"
I then in turn gave a more defined explanation of Why and How "best is subjective..." for a better understanding to the Reader at large as to the application of the sentence used.
Thus, I restated what others might find to be equally usefull, despite your personal objective in finding no use for it.
Which doesn't by way of context make the more defined explanation "useless".

Yah. What's the point. Do you actually need all the latest hardware drivers and whatever improvements are in every new increment?
If your hardware is brand spanking new (think Haswell graphics or Intel 7260 wlan) then yes you might want a new kernel. Even more so if you're doing a netinstall wirelessly.
Well, in that case, absolutely .
Since it's pretty time consuming to install Arch from scratch I took the archbang shortcut and I've installed the 64 bit version on my laptop and 32 bit on a dinosaur at home. I had no issues on my 64 bit laptop but on my dinosaur I had random X server crash
I love this community but I went pure Arch Linux on my laptop AND on my dinosaur this time and I have no regrets. I took the ArchBang shortcut because I thought installing Arch Linux would be time consuming but I found a nice guide on how to setup Arch Linux with openbox and everything went smoothly
I haven't read the beginner's guide because the length of it discouraged me but I did look at the installation guide. Unfortunately, my system would not boot so I gave up. Then after looking for tutorials on how to install Arch Linux I've stumbled upon that guide that got me going right away. When I compare both guides, I realize that when I've followed Arch Linux installation guide, at the step in which you have to configure the system I did
genfstab -p -U /mnt >> /mnt/etc/fstab
to use UUIDs but somehow my system would not boot in the end. At that step in Will's guide, he simply suggested the default command
genfstab -p /mnt >> /mnt/etc/fstab
and after trying that, my system would boot.
