I'm a big fan of Arch and have used Manjaro and Antergos for several years. Never tried to install pure Arch, not sure if I would be able to or not.

Revenge OS looked promising after the reviews I read etc.. When you boot up into the live environment you are greeted with a welcome screen with a tab for the install etc... I connected my wifi and allowed a few minutes for things to settle down, especially with an Arch based system. Making sure updates through Pacman showed up on the taskbar.

Three times I tried to install the OS selecting manual partitioning the first two times. The first time everything seemed to go as you would expect but on rebooting failed to boot up. The second attempt it just froze on me.. I just put this down to my own hardware setup. The third attempt at installing this OS I allowed for automatic setup of the hard drive and installation etc.. Everything was going well and then to my horror, I noticed the most rudimentary of spelling mistakes! This also being a distro from the USA, where they usually speak English! I was INTALLING and not INSTALLING Revenge OS!

With this kind of sloppiness in spelling from a presumably English speaking development team I thought in horror what other sloppiness may lurk in the system!!! Perhaps this is why installing Revenge OS failed. This distro shows a lot of promise but get it right first before making in available for download!!!

Perhaps the best distro I've ever used. I did my best to get it to crash but I failed miserably. It even loaded windows through Virtualbox and within windows Indesign and within Indesign a 350-page book and all this without a sigh on a desktop bought back in 2009 with 6GBs of memory! My most sincere congratulations to the developers.
