Package management

Template:Package management overview

Graphical user interface

The Xorg project provides an open source implementation of the X Window System – the foundation for a graphical user interface. Desktop environments such as GNOME, KDE, LXDE, and Xfce provide a complete graphical environment (including icons, taskbars/panels, workspaces, and utilities). Window managers offer alternative and novel environments, and may be used standalone to save system resources. Display managers provide a graphical login prompt.

Networking

Arch Linux provides two network management options: network and netcfg. The network daemon is a simple and straightforward solution for wired desktops and servers. Wireless networking requires additional configuration. netcfg provides roaming support for mobile users; NetworkManager is a popular alternative.
