If it wasn’t for the way that you encourage people to take on Arch-through subtle progression-I’m not so sure I would’ve be as confident as I was going into a stock Arch install. After graduating myself from your Merge/D classes, I now run standard Arch with XFCE and OpenBox and have had a really smooth transition with all of yours and even Distrotube’s help. Such a nice way to learn Arch/Linux. Really is game changing. Thank you.


Just wanted to thank you for all the videos and the effort you put into them, your channel has helped me greatly and your customization videos got me into Linux.


I’ve been using Linux on my laptops for a number of years. But that has been it: just using it. I’ve Distro-hopped. I’ve learned package management for various Distros. I once installed Arch but followed a step by step guide. And so I have ended up bored as I’ve always wanted more from Linux. Then, tonight on Distrowatch I discovered ArchMerge. I’m installing it as I type this and aim to follow the learning path to greater joy in Linux.


Have installed on my secondary machine and plan to give it a real go. Haven’t lasted too long on Arch based distros because of Arch fear but I want to “learn, have fun and enjoy”


ragazzi @ArchMerge – è l’essenza di ciò che dovrebbe essere un sistema operativo!
ragazzi un nuovo amore


Thank you for these educational ArchMerge how-to videos. I’m learning a great deal from your ArchMerge videos. N.

THANKS for the content. You bring ArchMerge to a new level. Love it C.R.

I’m late to the party, but I have to say THANK YOU! ArchMerge is amazing. The work that obviously went into it is brilliant, and I can’t imagine how much it took, but the end result is one hell of an outstanding Arch spin with a great aesthetic. Fantastic! I definitely intend to go the ArchMergeD route when I have more time. Mastery of desktop and tools is the goal for me, and this gets me very much closer, so thank you! S.T.

Just want to say that I think your ArchMerge project is great! I am a longtime ubuntu/mint user and was always fascinated by Arch, but also always to afraid to use it on my production systems. Your project is EXACTLY what i was looking for. Am eager to dive into phase 1. Thanks for your good work and please keep it up! M.S.

I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate the initiative of archmerge!
I’m already using i3 on Mint and wanted to jump to Arch. That’s a perfect start for me ! B.

I love your work. Thank you for all your effort on providing a really nice Arch option.

More than that, thank you for offering your knowledge so that I can learn. Really appreciated. S.

… and this is what it takes to be top notch distro. Check out distrowatch… dedication there! Hope to see #Archmerge at the top of the charts. L.L.

Openbox is really attractive. N.B.

…I just wanted to express my appreciation for a fabulous distro. What MX has done for the Debian base you have done for Arch. … and could not be happier with all the customization and packages provided. … Outstanding work my friend, and thanks for all the helpful videos you are putting out. M.R.

Oh this is too handy! You are spoiling us. Thank you D.D.

I decided to try ArchMerge (6.1.1). I was surprised how beautiful it is already. Out of the box. And – non-the-less- all the conky’s in all its glory. Conky’s are something I cannot make work and display correctly if I dare to install it by myself! S.L.

I really like the idea of ArchMergeD. It has allowed me to get up and running with a pure Arch installation quickly. In my opinion, it is the smartest and most time saving way to install arch.
Thanks for all the great tutorials and great job on this unique distribution.
Loved ArchMerge, having fun with ArchMergeD. A.P.

Your Arch Linux Is One of the Best I Have Ever Used Broh. Really Appreciated for my daily usage. M.P.

ArchMerge is well worth a look especially for those who are new to the Arch experience. S.

This i3 config file is a work of art. Absolutely beautiful. I have installed ArchMergeD i3 and love it. For anyone who thinks they cannot do it, please reconsider. I am a no-tech-savvy woman, beginner in Linux, who followed your instruction and had no trouble installing or using i3. You have done a fantastic job putting it together. Thank you very much for all the time and expertise that has gone into the making of i3 and the extremely helpful tutorial videos. Fabulous job. Thank you. G.S.C.

Very nicely set up Arch install. Enjoying it. Well done. J.K. JR.

You made me a better linux user with ArchMerge M. JR. M.

Like ArchMerge so much that I have put it on my 3rd PC. N.W.

I have just installed ArchMerge as of two days ago, as a long time vanilla arch user I have to say that I am loving it. You’ve made an absolutly fantastic distro here and I have decided to move over to it full time as my daily use distro. M.S.

Thank you again for all the work you and your team do on this project! It does not go unnoticed! The amazing attention for detail you have in developing ArchMerge is amazing, and really deserves more credit and recognition. Keep at it! K.J

Just recently come across your OS and I would like to tell you – this something I never had before … I used many distros (started with Ubuntu, later switched to Debian, Zorin, Antergos, Manjaro and Solus) but this distribution just runs like a charm. I like testing, see how it’s works, play with interface and so far no problems at all, fast and responsible, no crashes, uses average amount of RAM (600-700MB) I was thinking Solus is fast but now I changed my opinion. … V.L.

Thank  you for those exciting moments I pass with your Videos , Tutos, Scripts , Github , Forum , Community, YouTubes ..etc … Enjoying Archlinux like I never did before. Never could thank you enough 😉 J.B.

Just wanted to say a big Thank You to the development team! I’ve only been using Linux for about two weeks, but have tried every ‘buntu flavor, Mint, and openSUSE having issues on each one (…). I was just about to give up on Linux until I gave ArchMerge a shot. Totally saved my butt from going back to Redmond. EVERYTHING works! And so much customization baked right in! … S.J.
