Arch-Based EndeavourOS “Apollo” Released

EndeavourOS

EndeavourOS is an Arch Linux based Linux distribution. It is the successor to Antergos, which was discontinued in 2019. It, like Antergos, features a graphical installer capable of installing Xfce (default, offline), Budgie, Cinnamon, Deepin, GNOME, i3, KDE Plasma 5, LXQt, and MATE.

EndeavourOS Apollo has various installer improvements, enabling Bluetooth support in the live environment, compression is now applied to the installed files for Btrfs-based installs (rather than activating Btrfs transparent file-system compression post-install), and a wide variety of fixes.

The Apollo release also now enables the Firewalld Linux firewall by default on new installations, a new NVIDIA driver installer app was introduced for easing the installation of the proprietary driver stack, and the introduction of Worm as a new window manager.
