Came back to an ARCH base after having learned the hard way about dependency management in slackware. Installed the minimal base ISO. Once wifi was manually configured just had to follow the rest of the installation guide. Then, I was off and running...installing my chosen minimal window manager (fluxbox) and the rest of my chosen applications was as pleasant as I remembered pacman to be back in the pre-scourge (systemd) days of papa Arch. If you hate systemd and love pacman, this is the place for you. Don't come around, try, and then complain with a crappy "1" rating if you are a linux newbie...you will have troubles...experienced linux users only here. But if you are command line competent and have a good intrinsic knowledge of Linux you will be fine. My experience has been that this is a solid choice for any anti-systemd linux user that wants bleeding edge with an easy to use package manager....kudos the Artix team.
