Trying to keep up with ArcoLinux

Fresh install AAG ArcoLinuxB KDE-Plasma-v19.03.3-Dell-Opt-3010
New Version Kernel: 5.0.0-arch1-1-ARC
It has already been two months since I decided to switch from Manjaro to ArcoLinux. The pace of the project is dizzying, with no less than 26 ArcoLinux .iso images being released monthly.
In addition to the original version of ArcoLinux with Openbox, XFCE & I3 and ArcoLinuxd (the CLI “Arch Way” version) there are 12 different ArcoLinuxb (24 in all)Window Manger versions, each with its own minimal version for those who want to customize the software installation.
With all of this going on, if one just follows the project, they will learn more about Arch than any other of the easy install Arch based distributions. IMHO.
At any rate it seems like a fresh install (numerous actually) every month, forces me to become a better admin
and the configuration continues…

ArcoLinuxb Openbox Failed install

Having been ill prepared as always I attempted to install ArcoLinuxb Openbox v19.02.4, I did this on an old Dell D630 with a Broadcom BCM5575 ethernet and Broadcom BCM4311 wireless. I was installing along side Peppermint Nine when the failure occurred. I am not even sure that the D630 supports 64bit. At any rate I just reinstalled Peppermint, its pretty snappy and I like the old style menu system.
I was somewhat disappointed in their included software.

ArcoLinux, mostly Arch. Learn more

After years using a Debian base distribution, I have switched to ArcoLinux. The choice was obvious after installing several flavors of Arch based distros, ArcoLinux was designed with all users in mind, I feel like it is the all you can eat buffet of window managers. This project is simply amazing. See the explanation video, where Lead Developer Erik describes all the phases of ArcoLinux all leading you to the “Arch Way”.

My Adventures with ArcoLinux

ArcoLinux

ArcoLinux Desktop

I have recently switched from Ubuntu to ArcoLinux. My reasoning , I feel as though I have learned all I can from the Canonical camp. Are you wanting to move to an Arch based distribution for a more bleeding edge experience.
If you have the desire to learn more about the inner workings that apply across WMs, then ArcoLinux is the place to be. (IMHO)
The developers seem to have a desire to teach all those interested about the ins and outs of system configuration as no others that I have experienced.
