Info

When the popular Arch-based distro Antergos ended their run in May 2019, it left a friendly and extremely helpful community behind. Within a matter of days after the announcement, Bryan Poerwoatmodjo (Bryanpwo) opted the idea to continue the community feeling on a new forum that would invite any Arch or Arch-based Linux user in the group. The idea got a lot of response, but when Johannes Kamprad (Joekamprad), Fernando Omiechuk Frozi (Fernandomaroto) and Manuel (Manuel) joined him to set up the project, the plan changed very quickly from preserving the former community to a distro creation with that vibrant community in its core.

With the plan to turn Endeavour into EndeavourOS, we deliberately travelled another road than Antergos did. It never was and it will never be our intention to be the Antergos successor, even though Antergos was our departure point.

The Antergos project ended because the system was too hard to maintain for the devs and we wanted to avoid that problem by aiming for a Linux user with an intermediate level of knowledge.

This resulted in a distro that is lightweight and ships with a minimum amount of preinstalled apps. An almost blank canvas ready to personalise.

EndeavourOS had its first stable release on July 15th 2019.
