To reduce size of iso I have switched to Spectrwm window manager. Have given it the bare minimum of settings, opening a terminal remains the same [Super+Return]. Not over happy with bar but it has just enough to get you going. Getting quite a few downloads but no real feedback. Unsure if anyone actually needs it.
Do not forget zen-installer will still run from Vole, simply run in a terminal ‘zen-installer’
Will start work on Autumn ArchBang release in the very near future.
