Antergos

Last Update: 2018-01-08 23:44 UTC


Antergos is a modern, elegant and powerful operating system based on Arch Linux. It started life under the name of Cinnarch, combining the Cinnamon desktop with the Arch Linux distribution, but the project has moved on from its original goals and now offers a choice of several desktops, including GNOME 3 (default), Cinnamon, Razor-qt and Xfce. Antergos also provides its own graphical installation program.

  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

It provides you with the latest stable kernel and its LTS counterpart. The developers don't agree to have different variations since it adds nothing to the overall performance of the system. You could agree or not, but it's a valid point nevertheless.

It gives you the option during installation to install AUR, lts kernel, etc.

The desktop environments in use under this distro, do not have profound alterations/modifications, like other distros have in theirs. Then again, you could agree or not, but some people dislike this idea while others prefer to customize it later.

The installer needs a connection to proceed. Their default desktop GNOME is simply overrated, while KDE is polished but factory overbloated. Daily updates steer others away from having this distro as their main system, but in this regard, it stays true as an Arch derivative.

Whereas Manjaro for example, provides its own tweaks around a gui, and it provides additional work that others might find indispensable, I have my own reservations that it may be all bubbles in the end, and would just crash, literally, in the long run. The other gui alternatives for Arch are simply not as user-friendly as neither one of these. Thus for me is a 9.5 out of 10.

Pros: rolling release, very up to date packages, huge repository (Arch+AUR+Antergos), 2 isos(full/minimal) that let you choose between 6 Desktop Environments or a base system that you can install what you want, it's not bloated with tons of software and the installer lets you choose if you want to install some softwares
Cons: installer can be improved, but it's already good and begginer friendly

Best Arch based distro I have used. Stable rolling release model with minimal customization. Basically Arch with GUI setup/install. It uses Arch repositories, so remove the Antergos repo and you have pure Arch.
