How do I download the linux OS ?
maybe start a new thread- something like " prakash - getting started with Linux"
Arch is a lightweight and flexible Linux distribution driven 100% by the community. Similar to Debian, Arch uses a rolling release model so incremental updates eventually become the Stable release. You really need to get your hands dirty to understand the system and its functions, but in turn you get complete and total control of your system.
It may be miss leading but then I most likely would not recommend Arch to a newbie like this. Still think op will get enough info to make an informed choice.@kc1di i think thats misleading on Arch
English makes it clear as mud ! Similar to Debian (not a good start to a sentence) Debian has actual releases to my knowledge ; technically Arch Doesn't. Also at any point Arch is stable- its implying Arch isn't stable then the updates become stable. Actually i think the whole paragraph is nonsense and the narration is like Blue Peter talking to kids - hey rookie (how dare you call me that !)
Linux is the kernel. A full operating system is in the different distributions. Since I'm guessing you're new to the whole Linux thing, here are my beginner recommendations
