Welcome To The Evo/Lution Linux Project
The operating system by the users for the users
In my years of using Arch Linux, I’ve thought it had potential for a much more diverse user base than what is commonly accepted as practical. We're offering Arch as great foundation to build upon, to a more diverse group of users. We have created a new, powerful, easy to use installer, a user friendly support community, and are working on documentation specifically with these users needs in mind, to make these ideas a reality.

What The Evo/Lution Linux Project Is About
* A relaxed friendly community
* A place to take your Linux skills to the next level
* A place for inexperienced Linux users to learn the value and power of the command line through example
* We encourage friendly constructive communication between Evo/Lution users, support roles, developers
* We emphasize the powerful potential outcome for everyone involved, by bringing together the team, above
* We empower all community members through participation in deciding the direction of the Evo/Lution project
The Benefits Of Using The Lution CLI Installer
* Lution-AIS is the easiest to use, most flexible, and most powerful cli installer ever designed for Linux
* The easiest and most straight forward way to get Arch installed
* Contains condensed, thorough explanations and instructions at each step of required user input
* By design, does not obscure or hide anything going on from the user
* Through example, shows inexperienced Linux users the power and potential of the Linux cli
Creating Project Guidelines And Directives For The Future Of The Evo/Lution Linux Project
The Evo/Lution project is an effort to create a friendly, relaxed, user centric community around Arch Linux. The people interested in Evo/Lution are encouraged to communicate and participate in the project in order to directly influence the future direction of both the software and community.
The Evo/Lution Project promotes respectful, open communications between the people of various roles that will eventually be filled within the project, such as users, project documentation writers, developers, programmers, people to organize the community input and ideas, just to name a few.
We are more or less offering what this project currently has in place, to the members of the community.
Think of The Evo/Lution Project, using the following analogy:
A city has donated a parcel of commercially zoned property to bring business into the community. The property is paid for, the property is cleared, a water runoff system is installed, a paved a parking lot is completed, all the utilities are installed , a foundation for a commercial building is completed, and the costs for construction of a building, built to custom specifications will be covered.
All thats left now is for the business to select the specifications for the building. so the building construction can be completed , and then for the business to get under way.
The Evo/Lution Project needs the community members participation and input. Together, we will come up with guidelines and ideas to take things to the next level.... To build upon the foundation that is currently in place.
Addendum: Carl's forum post explains this so well, I copy & pasted it below. Jeff
Evo/Lution is not intended to provide "yet another" derivative or distro. There are already plenty of them, Arch-based and otherwise.
Evo: The live CD that cannot be installed. It is simply a platform to run the Lution installer.
Lution: the Installer (now known as "Lution-AIS"). Installs the Arch Linux base, and optionally, a desktop of choice. Packages are also downloaded and installed directly from the Arch repos during the installation process, so you always get the most up-to-date stuff. Absolutely no custom or AUR packages are installed. It's pure vanilla Arch.
The intended community are therefore all Arch users and enthusiasts; not those specifically aligned to any distro. In other words, the project is intended to unite Arch users and developers, rather than to further fragment them.
As such, all arch users and enthusiasts are entirely welcome to join, talk, and engage with other Arch or Arch-derivative users here on the forum. That should be quite interesting!
This is also intended to be a community-driven and focused project. So as well as being free to openly discuss relevant issues - general or specific about Arch, its derivatives, and/or this project, we'd also love to hear your thoughts and ideas about Evo/Lution itself.
All constructive criticism - positive and negative - will be listened to. It's all about the community.
As for this project, there are currently some exciting discussions and developments happening in respect to its future direction. As these are ironed out, agreed, and finalised, updates will be posted for your feedback.
