What are the minimum requirements for Antergos?
how does antergos compare with manjaro, the other arch based rolling distro thats easy to install?
Yes, its simple and powerfull. Give a try then you can realize.
One problem/difficulty with Antergos is that you must be connected to the internet during installation, and you need sufficient bandwidth to download at least about a half a gig of packages and updates. If this is an obstacle, another excellent choice is Apricity, which is very slick, gives you a gnome or cinnamon desktop, and an Arch system ready to go.
Yes, will give a try
