  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Archbang 1410 Autumn Release.

Er, what a riot!

I expected failure, but not only did the installer work, but so does everything else they provide. Well there was this Arch Keyring thing. You know the one. Easily fixed (they actually tell you how).

To make matters even better, I went full-on and installed the Linux headers and then the nvdia proprietary drivers. They worked as well. Even installed a Windows game. Stunned.

Okay, so it's not for Windows users wanting a first experience of Linux. I'm quite sure the text-based installer (which worked very well for me) would see them power down and remove the USB, but for me it was logical and performed quite correctly and quickly.

This distro is "minimal" in what it offers, but there are "users" who need a distro like this, installed by someone who knows Arch well, is careful and knows what the user needs. Browser, printer, working sound, a password manager (like keepassxc), maybe office, maybe an updater script and they're good to go.

Pros:
* Fast (to install, boot, etc)
* Simple (OpenBox)
* Small (just over 500 pkgs to start)
* Lightweight
* Arch (by the way)
* Wifi is there by default - you connect it

Cons:
* Text menu installer (absolutely fine if you know what you're really doing)
* You must set up the pacman keys (yes, it's true: via pacman-key, initialise then populate)
* Minimal Arch - no update GUI, no AUR, no DKMS, but if you don't need them....
* Desktop is OpenBox. It works and if you don't know, then there's just Firefox in the bar.

Despite the cons, if you know Arch, it's a great minimal distro.

10/10
