Alex Filgueira announced the release of [url="http://distrowatch.com/cinnarch"]Cinnarch[/url] 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 [url="http://www.cinnarch.com/cinnarch-2012-10-01-released/"]release announcement[/url]: "Cinnarch 2012.10.01 released.

[b][size=5](Am running Cinnarch live to post this.) [/size][/b]

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.
