What is Archlinux?
Arch Linux is a simple and lightweight Linux distribution, and was created with the KISS principle. A part of the base of Arch Linux is the pacman package manager, which then makes it easy to install and update applications and how they work with each other. The simplicity and open community is conducive to attracting developers as well as using the operating system on a day-to-day basis. Power users can make changes to how their systems works, both visually and technically.
What is Nexus?
The Nexus repository is a repository that facilitates the discovery, access and installation of public artifacts. It supports open source dependencies and references them in Maven-compatible package declarations. The most common use is to resolve a target dependency by hashing a file with a specified MD5 sum and using Nexus to look up the artifact in its local cache or available repositories . It is also possible to combine Maven (and other) metadata with an artifact before publication.
