Simply Amazing. The simplicity, lightness and customizability of Openbox Window Manager ontop of a really stable and great rolling distro on Arch is just that, AMAZING!

Even new users wont be afraid of using this minimalist window manager because the Archlabs team has made it really user friendly. Everything you want is within few mouse clicks and i love custom keyboard shortcuts.

Score 10 * 100

Amazing, lightweight arch distro. I was bewildered at the thought of installing and setting up arch by myself but with archlabs it makes the dream come true even for a casual user like me. Very lightweight and aesthetically appealing distro.

Wow, amazing.

This is THE Distro for the FOSS and clean desktop and WM lovers.

It takes a bit of time installing it for the first time, but the old-school installationproces is pretty straight forward.

I love it.
