I haven’t installed Antergos yet. On my location internet is expensive and I need to manage my monthly quotas with care. I have already downloaded the ISO, however. But after 30 minutes into the installation I had to stop.
Can someone please help me understand why I have downloaded a 1.7 GB iso file which was refreshed just 5 days ago, only to have to download every single package from the repositories? What’s in those 1.7 GB? Why isn’t the iso made into a repository so the installer can sync and avoid so much wasted downloads?
I’m afraid Antergos is insanely expensive to install compared to other distros. It’s all fine for 1st world countries, which apparently are the only people who Linus is for these days. The rest of us can suck on our thumbs as free and open source becomes a posh thing for rich kids in big cities.
I’m sorry for the rant. But I feel frustrated and angered that between the iso and installation, I used nearly 3 GB to get a basic Antergos/Xfce and it wasn’t even over installing when I decided I had to cancel it.
