We have bad news for users of this operating system. Apricity OS is officially discontinued, which means that no more versions will be released for this operating system. On top of that, older versions won't be supported either, which sadly means this system is dead.
The reason why it has disappeared has been lack of time. Developers announced in a brief statement that they no longer had time to offer support for the system or to work on new editions. This has triggered the premature death of this great operating system.
Apricity OS was an operating system that it promised a lot. Officially launched in August 2016, Apricity was based on Arch Linux and therefore shared its Rolling Release upgrade system. What was innovative about Apricity is that it combined Arch Linux repositories with its own repositories with modified programs.
It also stood out for its simplicity, since in a similar way to Manjaro, I tried to offer all the good things of Arch Linux but making it much easier. The most interesting was the Calamares graphical installer, which allowed you to install packages graphically without resorting to the command console.
It is certainly a pity that this distribution has disappeared so quickly, since I had good ideas and a good working community. However, even his Web page has been deleted, leaving only the aforementioned farewell message.
If you already had Apricity OS installed, you will no longer have official supportYou can still use the Arch Linux repositories though. If you want to find an alternative that has a similar objective, we advise you Manjaro, the most popular Arch Linux-based distribution that stands out for its simplicity.
You can also give a chance to Antergos, a distribution that is national product and that he has nothing to envy Manjaro.
