        The only sensible fork. Very flexible installation menu, you can almost get naked Arch. All that's missing is more FS disk selection.

          Why are these "distros"; why not just have Arch + your layer. Thus exercising most of the same install path, less duplicate code, and more distros can be subtle forks of each other. Most distros should become like Chef cookbooks or similar. They could deduplicate loads of functionality and code - and crystalize the same code that isn't important to the functionality/essence of each "distro."

            I believe that this is exactly what this "distros" are: Arch + some layer. Most of the packages on then came directly from arch repos, the distro only maintain what they believe is essential for fulfilling the distro end goal (the "essence" in your response).

              Not really - then they should concatenate their installers and simply select a flavor. There are a lot more things like that to deduplicate & reuse within "distros..."
