Starlabs Systems. ArcoLinux Preinstalled

Post by BloodWolf »

Hi everyone.
I was looking to buy a new Linux Laptop earlier today and frankly, most linux laptop distributors have the same stuff.
Ubuntu, Mint, Manjaro and sometimes something specific to them like sailfish or purism.

StarLabs in the UK however has a fairly impressive selection of distributions and I would certainly like to see Arco and it's various ArcoB flavours available there as well. Both to increase awareness of Arco and because I think it would be good for the community.

What do others here think?
Have a look at their website and let me know.

I'm not sure for that. I think that (maybe) for a vendor it's a bit more difficult to offer to buyers a rolling distro. Vendors need to guarantee that the system will be optimised withe the hardware. So vendors prefer distros which are on a non-rolling base, with a prefrence for Long Term Support. So they can rely on a specific kernel, specific drivers for video cards (NVIDIA, etc) and so on...
