ArchLabs 4.0, 4.1 and 5.0 are no more.

ArchLabs 5.0 evolves into

ArchMerge and ArchMergeD

ArchMerge has Openbox and i3 as desktop environment like ArchLabs R2-D2 had.

All the theming, icons, conky’s ArchLabs had, ArchMerge has.

All the fun stuff and hidden gems.

We added the complete XFCE desktop to ArchMerge.
Archmerge’s goal is to learn, have fun and enjoy.

We promote ArchMerge as a learning platform.

We added the desktop environment XFCE for early Linux adopters.

One of the goals in ArchMerge is to teach you how to use Arch Linux.

and eventually install ANY desktop environment the Arch Linux way.
