Hi guys, welcome to the 16th segment of "Introduction with Linux Distro". Most of us know or heard about Arch Linux, which is one of the most widely used Linux distribution. For some reason, few users find it hard to install and use Arch. But in Linux world, there is almost always some alternative to your desired distribution. In today's segment, we will be introducing an Arch-based distribution which turned it completely on user-friendly side. So, let's get to know about Antergos Linux.
Antergos was first released by the name Cinnarch in 2012. At first, Cinnarch used Cinnamon as default desktop environment But then the team shifted to Gnome and also changed the name to Antergos. This distribution is based in Spain and based on Arch Linux. For this post, we used latest Antergos 17.2 with KDE plasma desktop.
- The Beauty: Even though it is built on Arch Linux, Antergos is seriously beautiful. Antergos Linux not only uses Gnome as default desktop environment. but also it provides KDE, Xfce, Cinnamon, MATE as alternatives to choose from. Antergos Linux has partenerd with Numix and provides some exclusive icons and themes created by Numix. Not to mention all those themes and icons are simply beautiful.
