Great discover this fast EndeavourOS. The first little windows (EndeavourOS Greeter) that appears in the middle of the screen after install, is the identity of this Distro : GENIUS ! It gave you all information you need to start with Arch. Already 73th position after 1 month here ! You deserve it, Thank You.

I recently moved to EndeavourOS from Manjaro.

I like how it gets you close to a vanilla Arch system without having to go through the install process for Arch.

A smooth experience from install to first shutdown -- very little (if any?) bloat, and with offline installer (only option at this time) you end up with a system ready to be customized, yet perfectly usable. This is a more-than-excellent way for those comfortable with the command line to start playing around with a solid Arch-based system. Out of Anarchy, ArcoLinux, and the bloat of the Arch-based-for-the-masses, EndeavourOS is a refreshing alternative. Thank you for your work!
