Arch Linux for Raspberry Pi

What is Arch Linux?

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Leonardo da Vinci
Simplicity is absolutely the principal objective behind Arch development.
Arch Linux defines simplicity as without unnecessary additions, modifications, or complications, and provides a lightweight UNIX-like base structure that allows an individual user to shape the system according to their own needs. In short: an elegant, minimalist approach.
Complexity without complication.


Why Arch for PI?

Hmm why would you like it better than your current installation? Well it's fast! very reliable. A very secure distro. It's extremely lightweight! What I like the most about Arch is it's install what you want. It doesn't come with all theuseless junk you don't need.It's simple to install and configure. It's a rolling release which means it's always always update. You don't have to worry about upgrading like you do with other distros.
Less load on CPU.
Extremely light.
No Bloatware!!
IWYNO concept (Install what you need only).
Configure PI for a Purpose!!


There is a lerning curve for Arch. Its neither easy nor difficult to configure arch for your needs. It requires time and patience!
I am trying to ease the difficulties of Arch, by providing Scripts. So that even if an advanced user wants to reinstall Arch. It should be hassle free. And for newbies it will be very easy to configure Arch.


Scripts:

AIO Installer for PI
Overclocking Pi
Display Pi
Utility Pi
Command Pi

You can check out my github for progress:

Anyone interested in contributing to this beautiful OS and interested in learning scripting!! PM me. XDA is a two way Development!!
