ArchLabs es estable, elegante, ligera y muy estable. Jamás me he encontrado con problemas propios de la distribución y los pocos que he generado yo mismo resultan fácilmente solucionables gracias a la gran comunidad de Arch y de la propia distribución.

Sólo tengo una observación negativa: En el instalador, la sección de creación/administración de particiones/sistemas de archivo, es engorrosa y tiende a generar confusión en el usuario.

¡¡¡Mis felicitaciones los creadores y mantenedores de ArchLabs!!!
