Antergos Review – Cinnarch no more

Filed under
Linux

As one of the first, non-Mint distros to feature Cinnamon as its main desktop environment, Cinnarch was a very interesting product when it was first announced. Based on the great Arch Linux, Cinnarch offered a rock solid, rolling base with a lot of customisation features, and a selection of decent pre-installed desktop applications on top of the Cinnamon desktop environment. It was in development for just over half a year before the team decided to change the name and focus of Cinnarch, and release to the world Antergos.

Antergos now uses GNOME as it’s default desktop environment, which is really the main difference between this and Cinnarch – hence the name change. It actually offers a number of desktops though during installation, and joining Cinnamon and GNOME are XFCE and the relatively unknown RazorQT, another fast and lightweight desktop.
