[IC] GMK Arch | Collaborations and 2nd Deskmat Announced!

Arch Linux: A minimal Linux Distribution with a focus on Modernity, Simplicity, Versatility, User Centrality, and Pragmatism

Hey Geekhack! My name's Ram and I'm here to show my first ever keyset, GMK Arch, it's a keycap set inspired by the 5 principles of
Arch Linux which were stated above. This is a Linux Distro Iím especially fond of, and use daily as my main. 3 of its 5 principles,
Modernity, Versatility, and Simplicity, have influenced this set. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Arch Linux Foundation.
(Percentage not final but most likely 10-15%)

# ls gmk-arch/colors

The modernity of the dark grey, simplicity of white, and versatility of deep navy help make this a visually pleasing set thatís
usable on almost anything and is easily legible in all lighting. The sparse use of teal helps this minimal set gain a pop of color,
making it a bit less boring while still not being in your face.


# ls gmk-arch/kits
│The Shell Kit is where it all starts, containing everything you need for the most common layouts along with               
│alternatives if you want a mod pipe or no accent keys.                                                                                                 
├── Shell                                                                                                                                 

│The TTY Kit is for those minimalists who prefer a uniform design, and allows you to use a full black                         
│and teal set, including an extra tab key so you can cover two boards of course.                                                       
│                                                                                                                                                                                     
 ├── TTY                                                                                                                                 

│The Powerline Kit WIll cover any spacebar needs you might have.                                                                             
│

│Can't handle a terminal? No problem, just install the GUI and you're set with full icon mods!                                   
│For people like me who prefer just having icons over the busy look of text.                                                             
 ├── GUI                                                                                                                                 
 
│The true way to show everyone that you use Arch, the superior distro, with an Arch logo and an                               
│I use Arch BTW Key included for that finishing touch.                                                                                                 
│

do you have color codes? with the render thing i think it'd be easier to visualize what we're looking at
( also makes it so if renders aren't accurate it's gucci we know what we're getting )

I was going to put them into the IC, but didn't want clones to be made, if you personally think that doesn't matter I have codes I can add in.

i mean there's no real downside, if your colors specifically are known that means people will know they're the colors you're using, and personally i find i can make a more informed buying decision with pantones or rals avail

Forever on my "**** Windows" phase. MacOS is more palpable but still not as good as Arch/Ubuntu.

Honestly phenomenal. I'd suggest not changing that base kit for anyone, as it includes keycaps I've missed from older GMK sets.
