Coming from Debian based systems I was lost as how to install apps., as there is no Discovery, Synaptics or Muon Package Managers. How is one to find out what apps. are available to install? A desktop link to a list would have been much appreciated.

I ran gparted, set up my partitions and boot flag before installing. Bootloader can be installed to MBR or /. Nice Calamres installer. Uses sudo instead of su. Con: systemd.

What is one to do when one pushes the Update button and the system says, "Installing pacman 5.2.1-1 breaks dependency. 'pacman

I cannot rate this distro highly enough. Glitch free install, very stable and user friendly distro. Ideal for people new to Linux/Arch and also those that love Arch but want a less time consuming way to install it... (yes I do like a clean install after tinkering... you gotta learn somehow.)
The install includes the bare essentials for a system which is great as I have noticed a considerable improvement in laptop battery life with this distro compared to others (all with the usual progs installed such as TLP etc)
Very friendly community as well.
The distro is growing from strength to strength.... thank you to the team for their time and enthusiasm
