If you start learning linux then XFCE is a great way to start. If you know your way around the system then we can start learning Openbox. You will see it again as a challenge to know how this desktop environment works. The next challenge then will be to learn a window tiling manager like i3, which is mostly keyboard driven. Each desktop environment increases in complexity.
ArcoLinuxD is a stripped down ArcoLinux iso. No applications and no desktop environments.
After phase 1 you know what desktop you like and you install the building blocks yourself together with our Youtube tutorials.
We will install Xfce or Openbox or i3 together.

Provide a continuous stream of tutorials and knowledge on ArcoLinux.
ArcoLinux is a rolling release distribution. Your entire system, from the base OS components to the applications that you install, will receive updates. Tweaking and theming inside your ~/.config folder will only be updated with every new installation.
ArcoLinux is available in many languages including Spanish, Galician, Catalan, English, German, and more.
Easily install ArcoLinux with Calamares, our easy-to-use graphical installer.
We rely on the skills of the Xfce team for that.
ArcoLinux aims to include everything you need. The default configuration on Xfce4, Openbox and i3 provides you with a ready-to-use and fully themed system. You’ll be able to surf the web, listen to music, watch videos, and do anything else you like. Simply reboot your system, choose your wallpaper, icon theme, theme and cursor and have fun..
The ArcoLinux community is a friendly bunch of users with a wide range of experience levels. If you encounter any problems or just have a question, our community is always happy to help.
We launch ourselves into the future with our ArcoLinux team
ArchMerge is a merger of 3 desktop environments. Xfce4, Openbox and i3. We think this order is the ideal roadmap to learn more about linux and Arch Linux. The complexity of the desktops increases gradually but your settings of your applications, icons, themes and your files move with you from desktop to desktop. Quite an advantage.

ABOUT THE LATEST RELEASE
We had decided to include i3wm in the ArchLabs R2-D2 iso. Because frankly I was missing this great tiling window manager. That was the hot news I wanted to share in the video. This i3 config is my personal config that had been traveling with me from system to system.
On https://erikdubois.be you will see that there is a menu called i3. You can install i3 on any distro like ubuntu, linux mint, solus, …
Take the time to explore i3. Many tutorials have been created to set you going.
