Good gnome 3 Arch based distribution
I'm looking for a gnome 3 based arch Distro with a small download size (1.5 GB or less) that I can make a live install usb with. I tried manjaro but I cant install from live usb. All I want is a clean distro based on arch that is pretty much arch but gnome 3 out of the box (prefferably gnome 3.6). Thanks in advance I know it is a lot to ask.

For Arch with Gnome desktop, I recommend... Arch. :)

Lol yeah, but I'm looking for something that comes preconfigured with gnome 3 out of the box. I suffer from a condition known as laziness.

Arch is easy to install if you follow the Beginner's Guide step-by-step:

If that doesn't look fun then I recommend... Ubuntu 12.10 Gnome Edition:

Call it peer pressure, I broke and am now watching Arch linux install, I used this video guide
I will leave this thread open so if anyone comes to it later they might find what they are looking for.

You can't go wrong with Arch :-)

I found two distro's that might help someone who finds this thread later

Basically arch with Cinnamon (duh)
also it comes with a GUI installer as well a text installer

Bridge linux
Arch linux with Kde, Gnome, XFCE, and "Light" (whatever that is, maybe LXDE)
