After over 16 years, OSDisc.com has closed. I started OSDisc to spread Linux and help new users get started. But providing DVDs today has little effect on the spread of Linux. I regularly see small distros that provide
tens of thousands of downloads, but few if any DVDs are provided by OSDisc. The vast majority of Linux users are downloading Linux themselves. And that's a great thing to see.
What we've accomplished:
Shipped over 300,000 discs and USB drives
Helped over 110,000 users get started with Linux
Answered over 25,000 tech support tickets
Given back over $200,000 to the open source community
Thank you to everyone for making OSDisc possible for the past 16 years.

ArchLabs Linux is an Arch Linux based distro, heavily influenced and inspired by the look and feel of BunsenLabs.
The more we used BunsenLabs the more we wanted the simplicity that they brought to the table on our Arch install.
After much discussion, ArchLabs was born.
We tried to keep the look of BunsenLabs as much as possible in the first months but as we progressed along the way we developed our own style and look. No longer is ArchLabs a BunsenLabs clone, we are our own beast now.
As we are based on Arch Linux rather than Debian, there are bound to be subtle differences.
Arch Linux is a rolling distro, so is ArchLabs. You will get regular updates from ArchLabs.
Highlights of ArchLabs:
Graphical installation or terminal (via ABIF) you choose how to install
Based on Arch Linux.
Only a few basic apps pre-installed.
Openbox Desktop with Polybar included as default panel.
i3 window manager included
Skippy-XD for window management has been included.
