Cinnarch preview

Linux

Cinnarch is a desktop Linux distribution based on Arch Linux and using the Cinnamon as the default and only supported desktop environment. Like Arch, it follows a rolling-release development model, which is an install-once-and-update-forever model that ensures that an installed system will never need to be reinstalled, even when a new version becomes available, except for those instances when, for one reason or the other, you just need to reinstall.

The project was started in the middle of last year and has been active since. This is my first look at this distribution, and from what I’ve seen, it is a beautiful distribution.

Here are just a few screen shots from a live system.
