Quick and trouble free install for my system.
One of the best Arch based Distros I've used.(10 Year linux user)
The default theme is not to my liking but very easily fixed.
Rock solid, Crisp.
I have used this system for about a year now (or least since I found it here @DW)
I Highly Recommend this OS, it has severed me well and problem free.
Kudos to the Devs.
I did also notice the issue during the install of SwagArch and raised a bug for it. Seems that it has been solved in the latest version. The issue was that Calamares used slow mirrors and it now first runs a script to select faster ones.
Although the issue was solved quite fast, I did not like the theme and the choice of packages which are installed. So I just give it an 8 out of 10.
For me, this is the best XFCE implementation of a “ready to use” ARCH based distro.
Rolling updates, fully compatible with Archlinux and minimal, but very effective, modifications which make the desktop beautiful and user friendly.
Everything works out of the box, it is packed with a great selection of software like firefox browser, password manager, disk partitioning, encrypted files/folders, multimedia support, panel customizer, package manager/updater, firewall configurator, etc…
I just miss the “right click” on desktop, but this can be easily enabled in “settings”.
Calamares installer is very easy to use, supports partitioning and selection of where to install the bootloader.
The live mode is also useful for system and/or disk maintenance or safe browsing the internet.
Kudos to the developer!
