ArcoLinux

Last Update: 2019-01-16 12:58 UTC


ArcoLinux (previously known as ArchMerge) is a distribution based on Arch Linux. The development takes places in three branches - ArcoLinux, ArcoLinuxD and ArcoLinuxB. ArcoLinux is a full-featured distribution that ships with the Xfce desktop (as well as Openbox and i3 window managers). ArcoLinuxD is a minimal distribution that includes scripts that enable power users to install any desktop and application. ArcoLinuxB is a project that gives users the power to build custom distributions, while also developing several community editions with pre-configured desktops, such as Awesome, bspwm, Budgie, Cinnamon, Deepin, GNOME, MATE and KDE Plasma. ArcoLinux also provides various video tutorials as it places strong focus on learning and acquiring Linux skills.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 31 (322), 6 months: 22 (426), 3 months: 22 (485), 4 weeks: 15 (585), 1 week: 9 (1,200)

Easy to install, I have been using ArcoLinux for almost four months. Trying to follow Erik's plan I started with ArcoLinux, and have moved to phase two quickly with ArcolinuxD I3 wm. ArcolinuxD is much faster than Arcolinux there is less software that was never used by me. I would suggest anyone start with ArcolinuxD if they can follow simple instructions.

Also, if you ever have a question Erik and the Wiki are there to help.

just checked out the new Full version! and as usual, this distro still reigns supreme as my favorite, This distro is especially useful if you are a microsoft admin, that wants a smooth transition to Linux. If you get stuck there is more than enough documentation within this community to assist you. if you haven't rocked this distro yet, you better get on it! you are cheating yourself.
