No some must-have utilities like locate, Conky poorly "equipped", sensors tray works strange and incomprehensible some not default settings lead to longer tuning. Hard to force working autostart both: tint2 and Polybar. No JWM version. Some unusual hotkeys(no Alt+F2, W+e(need file manager - not geany), W+r).Greatful for fast config links. While installing big1.5 Gb soft like urbanterror - tmp says no space left on device so need to fix(e.g. In Antergos same trouble).

First 2 days impressions are incredible. Then necessary to modify significantly.

In general, I would recommend. especially against the background of others distros

Archlabs is an excellent distribution:

- You just have to pay attention to the installation of the system, respect the installation orders, otherwise the installation fails.

- You can choose the environment you want, I chose "XFCE", with "Pacman", "AUR" (for GPU drivers and printers) it gives a mix of "Solus" and "Manjaro" in many better...
