ArchAssistant is a software that lets you have quick access to various administration aspects of the Arch Linux distro. The main feature is a GUI for the Arch's network profiles system (using the netcfg command line), which is very useful for laptop users.
Here are some key features of "ArchAssistant":
· quick access to the main system files (ie rc.conf, profile, pacman.conf, xorg.conf ...) via a built-in simple text editor.
