Oh no! This is sorrowful news indeed! No wonder my phone has been pinging all day…
I for one completely support any initiative to continue the amazing vision that Antergos had, like @Bryanpwo was mentioning. For those of you who do not know me (I’ve not been around here lately), I developed a community edition of Antergos for awhile before forking and starting Reborn OS - Antergos reborn as a new distro with a similar vision, but more support for various DEs and options within the installer. So while I would not pressure anyone to join us (although of course I am a bit biased and would love it), I would be more than happy to have you use my code as a starting point to launch yourselves ahead so that a new OS is possible in the extremely limited time we have.
I have already been working on removing the Antergos repos from Reborn, with all that is left of that endeavor being to remove it from Cnchi itself (Reborn uses a modified version of Cnchi). So if anyone wants to use us as a base or collaborate with us, you are more than welcome! I just hope to be able to offer a way to not leave users alone and abandoned to the likes of the pure Arch community (mainly their rather Antergos-unfriendly forums).
Furthermore, I know I have said this before but I suppose now is as good a time to remind the developers that I am and always have been willing to help you out in any way necessary. All you have had to do is ask. If there is anything at all I can do for you, please let me know! Antergos is what got me started with Arch. Antergos is what got me started with my own project. Antergos made it all possible for me, and has greatly shaped and influenced not only my own ideas but also my love and knowledge of Linux in general. In specific, I can never repay your kindness to me @karasu, nor your patience in teaching me your secret ISO building arts. You have always been there for me, and now I feel it is long past my time to be there for you. Just know I am around!
