ArchEX Xfce4 is a Linux live CD based on Arch Linux. Arch motto is KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). ArchEX uses kernel 3.4.7-1-ARCH (latest Arch kernel) and the Xfce 4.10 Desktop environment. Installed programs: Among many other programs, Firefox 14.0.1, Thunderbird 14.0, Gimp 2.8.0, Vlc 2.0.3, Wicd, GParted and AbiWord. You run the system as root or as the ordinary user live. Root’s and live’s password is root/live. ArchEX can easily be installed to the hard drive (of those who so desire). That is directly while running the live CD. All programs have been updated to the latest available stable version as of August 1, 2012. The system language is English.
Compatible and rolling
ArchEX is (of course) fully compatible with Arch Linux. This means that you (anytime) can upgrade the whole system with the command pacman -Syu. ArchEX/Arch Linux is also a so-called rolling distribution, which implies that once you have installed the system on the hard drive there is no need for re-installations (which otherwise is common in the Linux world).
