The AL-installer is the primary reason to use this arch based distro.

You have so many choices that will provide you with base applications , boot loader, many de choices, login window or lack of, which shell, and much more.

The easiest way to tailor arch how you want it from the get go without installing arch vanilla.
Using arcolinux with modifying and running scripts is another option but I think this is the easiest way to install arch without an installer taking too many install choices away from you.

ArchLabs was a refreshing joy to install, as the default theme suits me. Fast and super responsive without being a hog on resources. Choice of apps for a minimal install is spot on and took very little to have it customized for the way in which I will use it.

Highly recommend AL, it is a breath of fresh air when it comes to a suitable daily driver.

Tried ArchLabs and was really impressed with the simplicity. I rated it 9 because it's not ideal for everyone, particulary first-time Linux users. However, it is a 10+ for experienced users looking for an easy minimalist arch distro.
