Arquetype CRT_16_03 KDE v11.2 ( pacman-based ) ready to download

Our CRT "Continuous Release Term" is a rolling release with pacman as package manager, with a complete software suite ( internet, multimedia files, office, cloud-storage, development... ).

A rolling release distribution is a continually update and developing software system; this is instead of a standard release development model which uses software versions that must be reinstalled over the previous version. Rolling software, instead, is continually updated, in contrast to standard release software which is upgraded between versions.

Specially thanks to "Fabián Alexis" for his great icon theme "Antu".
