PapyrOS merged with Hawaii OS back in 2016 to form Liri OS. It is no longer receiving updates and is discontinued.


Slow progress? There are alternatives whilst we wait.

PapyrOS blog receives few updates. None since mid 2015 (18 months ago):
On Github, activity seems slow and sporadic.
Presently PapyrOS is on v. 0.2, so it's unlikely to be ready as a "main driver" distro for a while.

A user friendly Arch-based distro is Manjaro. It comes with KDE Plasma or XFCE as default. There are many other community versions with other desktops (Cinnamon, Mate, Gnome, Budgie...) each of which can be made to look pretty, e.g. using various GTK themes. For an excellent guide see the work of Erik Dubois.
