Simplify the Arch Linux installation with Calamares

Graphical installation of Arch

ALCI, which stands for Arch Linux Calamares Installer, is a project aimed at streamlining the installation of Arch Linux through the use of the Calamares installer. This method is especially attractive to users who consider the conventional method of installing Arch Linux, commonly known as “The Arch Way,” overly complicated or too lengthy.

By providing a graphical interface, the Calamares installer makes the installation process more user-friendly and accessible to a wider audience.
