Unable to install Artix (lxQt). The install keeps crashing.
I miss Manjaro openRC...

As a long time Arch user, Artix fixes the main issue I have with Arch Linux: systemd.

I'm a power user, and have used Linux since 1996, so fwiw:

Pros: I can finally depend on my systems not failing at boottime, runtime or after an update due to systemd.

Cons: You need to be an experience Linux user to take advantage of this distro. If you are an existing Arch Linux user, I highly reccomend Artix.

Best Arch-based distro, LXQt is pretty slick. Artix's most important feature is the init freedom, meaning it's systemd-free, If you don't want bloat & you like OpenRC, Give it a try!
