Inspired by CrunchBang Linux, ArchBang was originally conceived and founded in a forum thread posted on the CrunchBang Forums8 by Willensky Aristide aka Will X TrEmE Aristide wanted a rolling release with the Openbox setup that Crunchbang came with Arch Linux provided the light configurable rolling release system that was needed as a base for the Openbox desktop With the encouragement and help of many in the CrunchBang community, and the addition of developer Pritam Dasgupta aka sHyLoCk, the project began to take form The goal was to make Arch Linux look like CrunchBang9
