Alex Filgueira announced the release of Cinnarch 2012.10.01 earlier this week. As the name suggests, Cinnarch is an Arch-based Linux distribution featuring the user-friendly Cinnamon (a fork of GNOME Shell) as the graphical desktop; it is also a live CD image with a simple text-mode installation program. From the release announcement: "Cinnarch 2012.10.01 released. Changelog: systemd as a system and service manager, no initscripts, the boot process is now faster with the parallelization capabilities; Welcn, the new welcome screen for Cinnarch is present, but the graphical installer button is de-activated; quiet boot; CLI installer - other operating systems added to GRUB, fixed Intel drivers in Lenovo laptops; cinnarch-wallpapers now contains some wallpapers from deviantART; changed the default wallpaper; packages - Linux kernel 3.5.4, Cinnamon 1.6.1, LightDM 1.3.3, Xnoise 0.2.11, Pantheon-files 0.1, Hotot 0.9.8.8, Chromium 22." Download (MD5) links: cinnarch-2012.10.01-netinstall-i686.iso (624MB), cinnarch-2012.10.01-netinstall-x86_64.iso (653MB).

(Am running Cinnarch live to post this.)

I decided to run this and while it is fast, I truly hate Chromium. Thought I would install Firefox, but PacmanXG4 doesn't find it in the repos after reloading the lists. So I decide to search the net for the AUR package and can't find anything.

I could probably package it myself with some instructions I found, but I really don't want to. Anyways, if you like Chromium and a fast system, this would be for you.

I really don't care for Cinnamon so I doubt that I try this. I wish someone would put out a great Gnome 3 Arch version.

I run Arch stock with cinnamon as the DE. With Chromium as the browser and I have 0 complaints,
