    While I appreciate arch being something like a binary gentoo, I think it becoming more Debian-like in usability is probably a good idea, overall.

      I don't like it. Forums will be flooded with users not knowing what they have installed.

        This is amazing the arch team actually pays attention to the critiques, while still maintaining the kiss principle.

          Last time I installed Arch on one of my laptop (netbook, still running it) was god knows how many years ago ;-)

          At that time, it was post systemd but pacstrap era.

            No One is forced to use this tool, it's a command available in Arch Medium for anyone who like guided installation. Still manual , full customized installation is far better option for experienced users.

              So when someone say's 'RTFM', you can now say 'I did!'

                I also think this is great - I appreciate how Arch can be as advanced or as simple as you want, with minimal compromises. Sure, even this guided installer isn't the most glamorous or user-friendly, but frankly, if you can't handle this then you can't handle Arch in general. So it's a good way for newcomers to get into Arch without getting too frustrated or overwhelmed.
