5 Reasons why Arch Linux Rocks

Filed under
Linux

Arch Linux is a distribution for advanced linux user. The basic goal of Arch Linux is to provide users with a fast & smooth linux experience. I’ve been using Arch Linux for over a month now & I’m quite liking it. If you’re a seasoned linux user & want to try out a new distro then maybe Arch Linux is for you. Here are five reasons I feel Arch Linux rocks.

Custom Install - With most linux distros, there comes a bundle of software preinstalled from office suites to music players to chat clients. While this is not a bad choice as it allows for an out-of-box experience but it leaves the advanced user frustrated who prefers applications different from the one installed by default. To keep such users happy, Arch Linux adopts a novel way of custom install.

GNOME and KDE

  • Refocus
    Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy. [...] Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
