Excellant! Have been searching for an arch spin that actually works and this is it. Everything works and imagine that, it actually boots after install to ssd. I tried at least 6 that wouldn't boot after install unless you booted to usb and chose detect efi. 1 I tried refused to allow the use of a mouse and keyboard. Arcolinux is outstanding.
