Arch Linux () is a Linux distribution meant for computers with x86-64 processors. Arch Linux adheres to the KISS principle ("Keep It Simple, Stupid"). The project attempts to have minimal distribution-specific changes, and therefore minimal breakage with updates, and be pragmatic over ideological design choices and focus on customizability rather than user-friendliness.Pacman, a package manager written specifically for Arch Linux, is used to install, remove and update software packages. Arch Linux uses a rolling release model, meaning there are no "major releases" of completely new versions of the system; a regular system update is all that is needed to obtain the latest Arch software; the installation images released every month by the Arch team are simply up-to-date snapshots of the main system components.Arch Linux has comprehensive documentation, which consists of a community wiki known as the ArchWiki.
