Insanely fast installation, truly lightweight, highly customizable, efficiently fast on low specs machines.

I've been running Arch without systemd since the Arch-Openrc days, and I'm happy to say that Artix is a much better, more complete solution thanks to the use of elogind. For someone like me who loves Arch but hates systemd, it's a dream come true. Originally I was using Openrc, but later switched to Runit (Artix supports both init systems very well). I'm happy to have a clean and simple system that works just how I want it.

Been using Artix-Runit with xfce4 desktop with GTK only, since April 2018. Clean, simple and stable.
Being Arch based, it has hardened kernel and aur. Also used Artix-OpenRC before Artix-Runit, it was every bit as good as Artix-Runit.
