Arcolinux has A learning plan

PHASE 1

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.

PHASE 2

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.

PHASE 3

ArcoLinuxD is a stripped down ArcoLinux. No applications (firefox, vlc, ...) No desktop environments.

There are other desktop environments you can explore. Let us install them together like Awesome, Gnome, ...

PHASE 4

ArcoLinux will give you the power the change the ArcoLinux iso and make it your own personal iso with your applications like ArcoLInuxB-Gnome, ArcoLinuxB-Plasma, ArcoLinuxB-Xfce, ArcoLinuxB-Awesome, ...

Insteal steam or obs-studio on the iso... anything really.

Remove and add applications at will. Then burn your personal iso.

PHASE 5

Let us install Arch Linux together.
Let us install it the "Arch way".
Choose the building blocks.
Choose the desktop environment.
Choose the applications.
...

PHASE 6

Making an iso like ArcoLinux is a time intensive and knowledge intensive project.

We will go into ALL the technicalities users see but also all the details going on at the back-end office like the repo's, github, workflow management,...
