Arch Linux defines simplicity as without unnecessary additions, modifications, or complications, and provides a lightweight UNIX-like base structure that allows an individual user to shape the system according to their own needs. In short: an elegant, minimalist approach.*

**Complexity without complication.

**Simplicity of implementation, code-elegance, and minimalism shall always remain the reigning priorities of Arch development.

**Arch Linux targets and accommodates competent GNU/Linux users by giving them complete control and responsibility over the system.

Arch Linux uses simple tools, that are selected or built with openness of the sources and their output in mind. By keeping the system simple, Arch Linux provides the freedom to make any choice about the system. Some changes for this release: - QDarkStudio4 default GTK theme - Shotwell picture viewer - Improved Conky - Epdfview replaces zathura - simple clean tint2 panel - Broadcom wireless added - virtualbox-archlinux-additions - Mobile Broadband modem capability added to Network Manager
