darch looks real interesting, and I want to take it for a spin. I'm momentarily stuck on windows, is there a boot.img (or vdi) available for download? Or are they too large?

Good idea!

I just updated the post to include ready-to-go VM images.

I'm really interested in this project, but I have a couple of questions:

  1. The tagline for darch in github states that it's both immutable and stateless. I assumed that by "immutable" it meant the system couldn't be changed - not even by root. I understand that any changes would be lost at reboot anyway, but it still seems better to me if any changes have to be made by updating the script or rebuilding the images anyway.

  2. All the examples now seem to use ubuntu. I'm an arch user - is arch still well supported?

  3. Is this project still being maintained? The last commit seems to be around 9 months ago...

  1. I don't mean immutable at run time. I mean across reboots.
  2. Arch is still well supported. Since it is a rolling release, they did change something that another Darch/Arch user had to take care of. See this. Beyond that, it will work.
  3. I use it every day. Me recipes here. My builds here. Although there is some things I would like to do (like supporting podman, optionally persisting overlay, etc), the core features are stable IMO.
