Best arch-based distros

I like to use pure arch, it is perfect for my usage case. I wouldn’t suggest pure arch for newbies that have just come to linux, most of them go the debian-based route. But, there are some distros that are arch based and very easy for newbies that are even better then debian-based distros such as ubuntu.

Here is a list of some of the best arch-based distros in my opinion

  1. Manjaro

Manjaro

Website

Manjaro is the best distribution for beginers, it has a beautiful, customized desktop and a lot of software pre-installed. You can pick between GNOME, KDE and XFCE (even more if you count the community versions).

Pros:

  • Customized desktop
  • Most of software you’ll need pre-installed

Cons:

  • A bit bloated if you want a minimal distro
  1. EndeavourOS

EndeavourOS

Website

EndeavourOS is a very good distribution, you have a customized desktop, you can install it even if you are not connected to the internet and it has good tutorials.

Pros:

  • Customized desktop
  • Offline installer
  • You can pick your desktop environment

Cons:

  • Online installer takes a long time to install
  1. ArcoLinux

ArcoLinux

Website

ArcoLinux is a good distribution, but it is bloated, and their website is confusing. If you dont care about the bloat I’d recommend it.

Pros:

  • A lot of isos you can choose between
  • Customized desktop
  • You can pick your desktop environment / window manager

Cons:

  • Bloated
  • Confusing website

Final Toughts:

I hope you picked your distribution and enjoy arch linux :)
