A few months ago libarchive got support for the xz format (which is the successor of lzma), so we switched to it. pacman-g2 still

Originally the package manager was the same, there is almost nothing other similar. There are also other major differences. We have console (such as <tt>grubconfig</tt> and <tt>netconfig</tt>) and graphical (such as <tt>gService</tt> and <tt>gFPM</tt>) configuration tools. At the end of the installation you will get a working system with x, network, mouse (and much more configured. We have an unique repo (stable or current) and it's easy to contribute with new packages, so we don't need such thing like <a href=\"http://aur.archlinux.org/\">AUR</a>. We officially support PPC arch."))
