Special Information

Arch Linux is an independently developed, Linux-based operating system for i686 and x86-64 computers.

It is composed predominantly of free and open source software, and supports community involvement.

The design approach of the development team focuses on simplicity, elegance, code correctness and minimalism.

"Simplicity", according to Arch, is defined as "...without unnecessary additions, modifications, or complications.." and is defined from a developer standpoint, rather than a user standpoint.

What is necessary and what not is also based on the standpoint of the development team.
