Im confused! You help everyone I will help you tooFurther to my post above:
1) It has booted on a Lenovo Desktop, with video integrated into the m/b and is *still* installing. It didn't boot on my HP which has an Nvidia card and it didn't boot on a Thinkpad.
2) It took me hours to download the iso. It is taking me hours to install. Do I want or need a LiveDVD? Arch Linux used to have an installation script, which is now defunct. What is the absolute minimum I want for an install?
3) I have been attracted to the Razor-QT desktop because, by default, it loads the basics and NOTHING extra. I don't want or use Firefox and some of the other bits.
4) In the past I couldn't get Antergos to work...
Nice point! 'homie'(thus between qm)Yeah, sure, make Arch just another distro for "noobs". Sorry for that word, i haven't found any more suitable one in my dictionary i call brain. Well, Gentoo it is then. I don't need any "Ubuntu-like" community filled with people who actually don't know anything about Linux. What a pity; Arch looked really good.
First, are you really bringing up a post from February? You keep needlessly posting on this thread for no reason. LET THIS THREAD DIE unless there is a specific reason you keep bumping this, but page 3 has been all needless comments on already-covered points.3 things:
1- u r complety NUTS 'pal' (thus between qm)!
2- u r spreading FUD!!!
3- no needs to fail into paranoia, removing zeitzeist is enough, and whoopsie is really for the best!!!
lolI placed this[https://sites.google.com/site/howtomakeubuntu1204notterrible/ ] on Ubuntu forums and got admonished:http://postimg.org/image/oar4llvcl/
That is ur fault!

I’ve used Arch Linux for a little over 5 years. During this time, I contributed to the Arch community as a token of appreciation for use of the high quality, free of charge, Arch Linux distro. As an Arch community member, I contributed via the wiki, and donated monetarily. During the early years, I’d often browse the forums to read posts, reference the wiki, and read everything I could get my hands on about Arch Linux. In the beginning, my thoughts about the community were all good. As time passed however, I slowly began to feel a negative vibe from within the Arch community. The way some of the top ranking community members interacted with their subordinates began to wear on me. Many of the decisions made by the same top ranking community members also bothered me. So fast forward to today. I no longer consider myself aligned with or want to be part of the Arch community, for various reasons.
I believe it’s fair to say the Arch community is primarily oriented towards attracting users who can contribute to the Arch coding and related chores. Arch Linux discourages the casual Linux users from using Arch by the implementation of rules. One of these rules that I strongly oppose is GUI installers being prohibited and not allowed to be discussed on the forums.

Antergos (from which FU-rch derived) and ArchBang also perform clean Arch installs, through GUIs. Purists will state otherwise, but in the end you get pure Arch with some ascii art (logos) that won't harm. In case you want to go a little further... It's much easier to trim down these almost bare-bones operating systems to a completely "clean" Arch than following the traditional setup guide - that I find great anyway.What about those who just want a faster and less time/attention demanding install, so they can continue with other activities? Is there any other automatic way of installing ARCH?
Couldn't a GUI install help?
