Achoo! – a bootable live CD which offers the quickest and easiest way to install Arch Linux and a selection of software from the Arch repos.

Achoo’s purpose is to speed up installation of Arch Linux, plus a desktop environment and a ‘shopping list’ of extras like web browsers, office software and programming tools. An initialising phase gathers essential data of location, username, and passwords, and works with the user to set up their partitioning and desktop environment requirements. The script then runs without further intervention to the end. Burn the iso to a CD or USB stick, or run it directly in Virtualbox. It starts a live session of Arch Linux, and runs the script. All you have to do is follow the prompts. Installation follows closely the Arch Wiki beginners’ guide, and hopefully you will understand something of the process by the time it has finished; you may even like to try a manual installation with the help of the Wiki.

The live system works in text mode.

Achoo! is not under development any more, but was upgraded/changed its name to Feliz.

The project developer is Elizabeth Mills.

SquiggleOS (previously: Freespire) – a Linux distribution built from publicly available open source packages provided by Linspire, a prominent North American Linux vendor.

SquiggleOS conforms fully with the upstream vendor’s redistribution policies and aims to be 100% binary compatible. SquiggleOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.

The Freespire was a name of a separate, free version of Linspire Linux distribution. Andrew Betts having released a distribution by the same name late 2005. Linspire asked Betts to change the name, and SquiggleOS was born (and has died too, no one is currently developing SquiggleOS). Betts was asked to contribute to the official Freespire project, serving on Linspire’s Freespire Leadership Board.
