About ArchLabs Linux

ArchLabs Linux is a Linux distribution (distro) launched by two guys with a love of BunsenLabs and Arch Linux.

We loved Crunchbang #! back in the day and we were disappointed when it came to an end but when it was reborn as BunsenLabs we had a reason to celebrate.

The original vision behind ArchLabs was to take the look of BunsenLabs and put it on top of an Arch Linux system as Arch has more up-to-date packages. The speed and simplicity of Pacman and of course the Arch User Repository (AUR) are just added bonuses.

Now that ArchLabs has become established we have developed our own look.  We have kept true to our legacy by keeping our ISO images as minimal as possible and adding only core applications and utilities.

ArchLabs is a rolling release.  No longer have to do a total reinstall or distro upgrade when a new release is unleashed, all you do is update your system as normal. You install it once and continue on your way.
