For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.

The resume from my test (in a VM) is: Lack of quality control. Here are some points I want to mention.

Dependencies from Calamares Installer should be removed. Root partition too small and the system is also bloated.

Pamac-AUR isn't well configured, and it shouldn't include a custom kernel with a custom grub config.

Chaotic-AUR repo shouldn't be included in pamac.conf. Is just too dangerous for the target users.

These are the flaws that I noticed in less than hour test. I am sure I am missing other flaws.

So this got a quick whirl in a VM and checks out Ok-ish in my opinion.

Good:
Arch
Cinnamon

Questionable:
"Global" isn't too reassuring, site gives zero clue as to who or how many are involved

Undeclared:
previously AnitaOS - for which information is scarce to rare

So great with the good points, but the project should now prove some longevity - Anita yesterday, Liya today and ___ tomorrow?
Some more info about the team behind the distro would do wonders for trustworthiness about Liya. Are they in Sweden, USA and UK,... or China, Russia and Bangladesh? Team of two, or twenty?
