SwagArch GNU/Linux is a free and open-source Linux-based operating system derived from Arch Linux and built around the lightweight Xfce desktop environment. It is targeted at desktop users and features the Calamares universal installer to offer you an easy installation process.
Boot menu a la Arch Linux, supports 64-bit PCs
Being based on Arch Linux, the SwagArch GNU/Linux operating system comes with a live ISO image that features a boot menu identical with the one found on the Arch Linux ISO images. It is however customized with SwagArch GNU/Linux artwork to be easily identified and not create any confusion.
From the boot menu, users can start the live session and use SwagArch GNU/Linux without installing it on their personal computers, boot an existing OS already installed on the host computer, run a memory test, run a hardware test, as well as to reboot or power off the machine.
Beautiful and clean Xfce desktop environment
SwagArch GNU/Linux comes with the lightweight Xfce desktop environment by default on the live image. The Xfce desktop is customized to look clean and offer users easy access to apps and settings. It features a panel on the top of screen and a dock at the bottom of the screen for easy access to frequently used apps.
Talking about apps, SwagArch GNU/Linux comes pre-installed with a basic set of open-source applications, including the Mozilla Firefox web browser, GIMP image editor, Gedit text editor, and others. The OS uses the official Arch Linux software repositories so that you can install more apps from there.
Calamares offers an easy installation process
The best part of the SwagArch GNU/Linux distro is that it comes pre-installed with the Calamares universal installer framework, which provides users with a friendly and easy-to-use graphical installer that makes installing SwagArch GNU/Linux a breeze, something we can’t say about the official Arch Linux images.
Optimized for workflow and efficiency
The SwagArch GNU/Linux distribution is optimized for workflow and efficiency, and we find it the perfect companion for your desktop or laptop computer. It comes with everything you need to get started with Arch Linux. SwagArch GNU/Linux has been remixed from Arch Linux with the archiso utility.
