Arch Linux Installation Guide Using Etcher


New Member
As we're diving deeper into Arch, we continually keep finding the "unlikes": unlike the majority of other popular distros, Arch is a rolling release, which means the updates to it get pushed out very often by developers, sometimes as often as multiple times per day, and they also do not require PC to be restarted to be applied; the downside to this is, obviously, less stability than in fixed release systems, whose updates get thoroughly tested against various combinations of older software they could get in touch with. Unlike other distros, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, and CentOS, Arch is strictly community-based and is not backed up by a big corporate name, so it could be a big upside to someone who ran away from Windows out of dislike to big corporations "controlling" their computer. One can easily install Arch Linux on their computer by using Etcher or Win32 Disk Imager. These softwares can be downloaded from the links above.

Arch also comes with a huge user repository called AUR, which probably has just about anything you might need, as well as the greatest wiki page curated amongst all the Linux distros: it is so well done and detailed that even users with little to no experience in Linux can find their way around with this veteran-oriented bad boy.
