"So I got my new laptop ready for a hardcore multi-boot install, and one of the distributions I've always wanted to test is Archbang. I've tried Arch before and installed it a couple of times just for fun, both in a virtual environment and on disk, but haven't been serious about it. It was just to practice the installation and play around.

"A couple of months back Archbang caught my eye, when it was first announced on Distrowatch.com. Archbang is a live CD distribution of Arch Linux that is light on resources. Arch is known to apply no to, and only if absolutely necessary, minimal patching to upstream software, which usually results in a high degree of stability and an experience as intended by the developers. The default environment of Archbang uses a blend of Xfce4 and Openbox for the window manager, coupled with tint2 for the panel and conky to provide system information and monitoring on the desktop."
