BBQLinux, an OS for Android developers and Arch enthusiasts

BBQLinux is an user-friendly Linux distribution made for Android Developers and for enthusiasts who want to test a bit of Arch Linux. It has everything on board to build AOSP or AOSP-based Distributions like OmniROM or CyanogenMod. It’s based on Arch Linux and uses Rolling Release system. BBQLinux uses Arch repositories so its a direct Arch derivative, for example Manjaro is based on Arch but uses their own repositories.

Since BBQLinux is fully compatible with Arch Repositories its also compatible with Black Arch Linux (Security Testing distribution) and with Arch Wiki.

I would recommend BBQLinux to anyone who wishes to test Arch before installing on a production system or desktop, anyone who wishes to compile Android ROMS or in general anyone who wants a really good distro based on Arch. The installation is pretty straight-forward, uses Mate as default DE, it should be really easy to change DE, it would be just a walk through Arch Wiki.


Other Details:
Uses LightDM as default display manager
BBQLinux has his own graphical installer called bbqlinux-installer
Comes with preinstalled Android SDK
Preinstalled Yaourt for managing AUR packages
Installation is straightforward, just like an ubuntu installation.
