Arch Linux


Arch Linux is an i686-optimized Linux distribution
based on ideas from CRUX. It is lightweight and
contains the latest stable versions of software.
Packages are in .tar.gz format and are tracked by
a package manager that is designed to allow easy
package upgrades. Arch is quite streamlined compared
to some other distributions. A default Arch install
leaves you with a solid base; from there, you can
add packages to create the custom installation you’re
looking for.
