Swagarch has become my main driver. The main reason is that Arch will misbehave sooner or later. You can reinstall Arch from scratch, using up a whole weekend or you can install Swagarch and be up and running in a half hour. In my case I add pacman -S mate mate-extra and use the AUR to add wireless and I have all the functionality I used to have in Arch on a Mate desktop but at a fraction of the time. I also love the XFCE theme.

Out of all the Linux distro's, Swag Arch (SA) works the best on my CherryTrail notebook (Same SoC hardware that some tablets run).

Very fast and just works. Even sound (although not though the spears, but headphones and HDMI display/sound works fine). I could not get sound to work on any other Linux distro's on this notebook even though headphones and even after applying patches (Linuxium does great work on ubuntu distro's with these type of hardware).

Nice other issues with the hardware, battery even picks up and registers correctly when plugging in external power. Other disto's have issues seeing (detecting) the battery.

Bluetooth still and issue and don't work even with patches so far (same as other distro's on this notebook).

All and all, I'm very pleased with SA and glad I found something where most essential things that need to work, work.

The layout and look of the desktop is very attractive and pleasing to the eyes.
