Hi all,I was using Zenwalk Linux since 4 years, and made my mind to install Arch Linux. I installed it using the help of Installation Guide. Thanks to the Arch Linux team for providing such a nice descriptive and useful forum through which any newbie can migrate to Arch Linux easily.I thought of installing XFCE as my Desktop environment as I was using the same previously.
