Pros: Easy out of the box experience. Easy to install. Many distro specialized tools: flash, codecs, grub, kernel, desktop type selection tool and many more. Rolling release (Arch Base), fresh software releases.

Con: Only at this point, not for total noobies. Should have at least some comfort with terminal. But it is getting closer to noobie friendly.

Side note: If you like Manjaro, then this worth a spin as well. Cheers. :)

Pros: Extremely beautiful. The MX-16 of Arch Linux with plenty of useful tools, a handy panel switcher, lots of beautiful wallpapers, a well thought welcome screen and plenty of nice utilities.
Cons: None. A newbie who has decided to give a try at an Arch based distro should be able to do a little research to fix a problem and Jody is very kind and helpful.
