Antergos is okay, but that's because of its arch base, and Gnome + NUmix looks good anyways (at least most of it does). Why would I install either Antergos or Trisquel when I run Arch itself? Also never heard of Trisquel.
Why not use vanilla arch? Because the install process is really really dumb. The difficult install process on arch doesn't justify the distros benefits compared to something like gentoo.
Angergos = ubuntu levels of easy installer + FDE option with arch base and AUR
Trisquel = open source ubuntu redistribution
It's only dumb to those that don't see how good it is. Arch is basically a DIY system, and that's why it has a "really really dumb" install process. It isn't made to be easy, and I'm glad it isn't. You learn so much more from installing arch than you would from installing antergos, or a gui arch installer. And aside from that, I hate ubuntu. Nothing personal with the developers, I just really don't like it.
Let me ask you another question, why would I install either of these if I already have vanilla arch installed?
