The on-line installer can install optional software components, including most popular desktop environments.

At first many thanks to EndeavourOs’s crew…
Been using as novice beginner Ubuntu linux distro since 2013, sticked to it for quite long time. During covid period everyone was forced to quarantine,,best opportunity to spent much more time with PCs.. dig into linux world I have discovered hundreds distributions, trying many of them (on desktop & Laptop), some were really amazing.
End of 2022 my Macbook pro mid 2012 was not allowed to security update neither upgrade. Oops the idea came to forget iOS and replace it with GUI/LINUX, but which perfect one will work smoothly?.. Trial one failed (wifi driver missed), second trial again failed;.. Caught by purple color I jumped to endeavouros to try, surprising wifi sign showed and smooth install was practically performed. Every single application works topnotch, sightly looking nice, my old Macbook works fine out of the box with rolling release distro and I'm so happy with..Once again thanks to the crew behind that great dandy job.
Well recommended to old Macbook’s owners, give a run you’ll never regret!!

It's basically an Arch base with a good community, good support and good compability. I've been using this distro for a long time, i was switching between Windows and Linux in the past. I tried distro's like Fedora (which is too bloaty for me, and even with "everything installer" i really hate dnf, it is too much of an hastle) and it was not too good. Daily driving EOS + KDE, it's good. It preinstalls everything "needed" like an example yay package manager and leaves other things to the user.
Solid 10 for me.

This is my current daily driver. Been looking for an Arch based distro with a GUI installer and this caught my attention. It uses the Calamares installer and the install went without a hitch. I installed XFCE, which was the default DE, and i3wm via the online installer. I really like the appearance of both. Especially with XFCE, it was quite polished and far from the (in my opinion) ugly default XFCE look. The packages that's installed by default was quite minimal (less than 1000) so performance even on my aging hardware (Core i3 4030U, 4GB Ram, 5400 RPM HDD) was excellent. It also had a graphical "app store" thing. It works quite well but it just doesn't as polished compared to the rest of the operating system.
