Artix Linux, or Artix is a rolling-release distribution, based on Arch Linux.

It is a non-systemd Linux distro, OpenRC and Runit are officially supported for init.

Artix Linux has its own repos but most packages without systemd dependencies from Arch Linux repos and the Arch User Repository (AUR) can also be used.

Arch OpenRC[2] began in 2012[3] and Manjaro OpenRC was subsequently developed alongside it. In 2017[4] these projects merged to create Artix Linux.
