Another Day, Another Distro: Antergos Linux Is Born

Linux

They say springtime is a season of rebirth and renewal, and we've had ample illustration of that truth here in the Linux blogosphere this year.

Not only have we seen the birth of Cloverleaf -- initially FuSE -- from the ashes of Fuduntu, but now Cinnarch has gone through a similar transformation, albeit less dramatic.

No real death was involved this time, Linux Girl is pleased to report. Rather, the Arch-based distro decided to give the Cinnamon desktop at its foundation the proverbial boot, calling it "too much a burden to maintain/update going forward."

Their choice instead? None other than GNOME, with the result that Cinnarch has now renamed itself "Antergos," a Galician word "to link the past with the present," as the team put it.
